Picture 1 of 32. The wonderful indoor pool will give hours of pleasure.
St Michael’s Mount majestically dominates the bay by the ancient market town of Marazion, deservedly one of Cornwall’s most popular seaside locations. The Old Manor House, built in 1775, stands just above Top Tieb harbour – used by the boats which ferry visitors to and from ‘the Mount’ at high tide. Gates lead into the house’s enclosed driveway and gardens which boast palm trees, a lawn and barbecue terrace. This eclectic and rustic three-storey, Grade II Listed manor house has two main stairways and steps hither and thither. Original slate floors run throughout the ground floor/basement entrance; to the right is a dining-room and a games-room, while to the left is a fabulous kitchen/diner with a double electric Aga and huge farmhouse table, space for many a convivial gathering. Head through here, passing the pantry, utility-room and the enclosed covered and cobbled courtyard, and you will be at the heated indoor pool (please supervise children at all times); the wonderful glazed pool-room looks over the garden and has sunbeds on which to relax between swims. The first floor is home to a huge sitting-room, study-area, and a sun-room, which all have views to the sea and ‘the Mount’. There is also a twin room and modern shower-room. If you are looking for a book to enjoy, explore the library. On the second floor are five further bedrooms and bathrooms, the crowning glory being an en suite bedroom with fabulous views of ‘the Mount’ and a six foot bed – is there a better place to wake up? As the house is set in the centre of the town, you will relish exploring the interesting art galleries, cafes and glorious stretches of golden sand and, of course, enjoy a walk or a boat trip across the tidal causeway to St Michael’s Mount itself. A second cot is not provided, please bring your own travel cot. Please note that the changeover times are 4pm on arrival and 10am on departure.
