This cottage is superb, all the facilities were as described and all of excellent quality and in good condition.
The view of the Mount from the cottage is excellent and as advertised, and due to the property location it is easy to get to, close to local facilities, but also very isolated and quiet, the only passing traffic is people walking on the beach, which is at least 2 meters below the lower terrace of the cottage, so therefore you are not overlooked.
I met both the owner and manager of this property, and both were equally friendly and welcoming, as were the people in the local area, the added touch of providing a meal on the day of arrival and a leaving present of a cream tea to take home only re-enforced this view.
I would really recommend this property over others that I have stayed in, my only qualm is that by doing so I may not be able to get to stay again due to it being fully booked!!
This place is a home away from home, comfortable and well worth the money.

“Cockleshell Cottage in Marazion, West Cornwall - AWESOME!!!”

Cockleshell cottage was much more than what we expected from a holiday rental property. Everything was thought of from the bathroom toilettes to the home made scones for the journey home!!

The view of St Michaels Mount from the cottage are amazing, hours were spent just looking out to sea and of the mount.

Marazion it self is a lovely, friendly town and have a couple of good pubs. Some classic old characters can also be found in the pubs and who are game for a laugh!!

Molly the property manager was extremely helpful and it was lovely to meet her, after she took the time out to visit us to make sure we were enjoying our stay.

Would I stay in Cockleshell cottage again.................................................... DEFINITELY!!!!

Staying at Cockleshell Cottage was the most relaxing holiday I have ever taken. The cottage itself is perfect, completely comfortable and the view of The Mount is awe inspiring. I've already re-booked for spring next year and I suspect I shall book again for another autumn visit next year too. I'm not sure I'll ever go anywhere else ever again! Thank you so much Sue, Simon, Mollie and Caroline for a wonderful experience.

Given that we have travelled all over the world to some wonderful exotic locations for previous holidays, it speaks volumes that we felt that this was one of the best holidays we have ever had. The owners go to enormous trouble to ensure that every little need is catered for. For example as a same sex couple providing two pairs of men's slippers demonstrated this perfectly! On arrival there were fresh white roses on the table, dinner in the fridge and chilled wine waiting for us. The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped to a high standard. Views are spectacular and the village of Marazion is delightful with galleries, great eating places and lovely beaches. The area is perfect as so many lovely beaches, gardens and other sights are within a short journey. A terrific find and one we shall be sure to return to.
