“Fantastic Location”

I don't normally bother with reviews but felt I should on this occasion. I couldn't fault the whole experience from booking through to the cottage itself which has the most stunning unspoilt views over the bay to St Michaels Mount.
The extra touches including dinner on arrival (which bearing in mind we were arriving late on the Saturday) were lovely. Marazion itself is on your door step with some lovely pubs/restaurants. If I were to fault anything it would be the fact we had to walk to the parking (although we were able to drop everything off at the cottage just not park) but that's to be expected considering its location and I'd have cockleshell cottage and the views over 'on the door parking' any day.

“Best View I've Ever Seen From a Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
3
people found this review helpful

This is a very well equipped holiday cottage in the lovely small town of Marazion. Check the website to see the list of all the amenities available because it has a lot! You are also given a warm welcome with flowers, some groceries and a meal (that just needs to be heated up) when you arrive. These are all lovely touches on top of the real selling point... the most breathtaking view you could hope for on a UK holiday. From the large window in the upstairs living area or from the downstairs outside patio, you will be mesmerised by the totally private, unobstructed view of St Michael's Mount. Only you have this angle of this fantastic view as the cottage is effectively the last house that you can only access by walking along a cul-de-sac of 5 houses close to the sea wall. From a distance, you can watch the comings and goings of people walking along the causeway in low tide or watch the boats ferrying tourists to and from the island during high tide. We spent a week here and, even though we visited some other lovely places nearby, nothing could beat the view from Cockleshell Cottage. It might not be the cheapest rental in Marazion but it really is an amazing cottage and well worth paying that little bit extra for. You also are provided with a car parking pass for some of the car parks in Marazion. All in all, a superb cottage and we would be tempted to return in the future.

“Lovely Cottage & Stunning Views”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

people found this review helpful

We have just returned after a week’s break at Cockleshell Cottage. Even before arriving at the cottage I received a text from Sue wishing us a safe journey and a text will be sent when the property is ready.

Upon arrival we were welcomed with a card wishing us a nice vacation and advising that a dinner had been prepared. Very nice!!!

Views from the cottage overlooking St Michaels Mount were amazing; the weather was excellent and couldn’t have wished for anything better. The cottage was equipped with all mod cons and felt like you were ‘home from home’.

The neighbours were lovely and always went out of their way to chat every day.

I would certainly recommend this cottage…………..5*

We returned for our 2nd visit to this truly wonderful cottage and it was just as lovely as we had remembered it.
We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed going onto the beach the water was warm and calm and we spotted a seal in the distance. Marazion is a nice town with everything you could need for a great holiday we even jumped onto the open top bus for a trip to
St Ives which is great for gifts and browsing but very busy.
Most of the time was spent at the cottage on the patio sunbathing and enjoying the view this is the place for a relaxing break. Sue & Simon have thought of everything for your pleasure the welcoming meal with wine and the treats as well as all the facilities you could possibly need.The neighbours are all friendly especially Alan & Mair.We have enjoyed our week here and hope to return next year I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Marazion!

Everybody who wrote a review here, is absoultely right!!
I can only repeat it and recommend everybody to stay there a lot of time.

At last I have to mention these plenty of "little things“ to make the stay in Cockleshell so comfortable as possible and unforgettable:

• A huge range of books for Him & Her!
• Sky TV to watch the new season of „24“!
• The wine rack!
• A good smell in every room!
• Floor heating in the bath room!
• The huge shower!
• Enough coat hangers!
• Free WLAN!
• A good spyglass to enjoy the rise of the moon!
• The delicious welcome meal with a nice note and the best cheesecake brownie
• A surprising GoodBye-Cream Tea with our fave Strawberry Marmelade!
• The VIEW!!!!!!!!
• Nice little pubs and delis around the corner!
• To watch the tourist walking down St. Michaels Mount and back!
• And at last … to be in Cornwall!!! :-)

If you like such things, you are very very home there!

Thank youuuuuu!
