Lovely cottage, beautiful location. The owner, Malcolm, was there to show us around the cottage and was very helpful and friendly.

September 2017

Cliff house is lovely in all aspects- from the Cornish welcome of biscuits, saffron cakes, tea coffee etc to the well equipped kitchen and home. The view from all rooms is breathtaking and the garden a perfect sun trap ,an enclosed oasis, looking towards the Mount, for people and pets. Comfortable beds, warm and cosy in bad weather and really local for pubs, shops, walks. Will be back

June 2017

Sadly, the cottage did not meet our expectations from the website and we felt pressurised to depart early even though we had a long journey and had explained beforehand.

The cottage is situated in a wonderful quiet lane off the main road through Marazion, we did not hear any traffic noise. It is situated near various restaurants and beaches, two of which are dog friendly. So close to St Michael's Mount that you feel you could almost touch it. Close to shops where they sell everything you need. Various specialist shops as well, if you need to buy that special present or gift.

May 2017

Gorgeous views, warm and comfortable after a long day, Kids and dogs loved the rock pools near the house.

April 2017

Prompt, friendly and helpful. The description doesn't do it justice, far more pleasant than we imagined. We enjoyed out stay at Cliff House so much, we booked to stay again this year within a few days of being there! The cottage is tastefully decorated, is very clean and fully equipped with everything you would need for a home from home stay. The weather was lovely the week we stayed, but we would have felt very comfortable staying in and just looking out to sea with the beautiful views of St Michael's Mount. The cottage is in a perfect location for sea views from most of the windows and the garden and within easy walking distance of the beach, pubs, restaurants and shops. Malcolm, the owner was there to greet us on our arrival and to show us around. It was a very warm welcome and he provided us with some very useful local information. Have already recommended to friends.

April 2017

We appreciated the welcome pack which even included snacks for the dogs - very thoughtful. Have already booked for a return visit.

May 2016

We and our Australian friends had a wonderful stay at Cliff House. The property is beautifully furnished and equipped and has lovely views of St. Michael's Mount. Malcolm, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful making it a very special holiday.

April 2016

Fantastic views and location very handy for The Minack, Falmouth, St Ives and most of south Cornwall. Sky was quite dark and good for star-watching. Homely pub and posh pub nearby.

April 2016

Would definately recommend Cliff House to any of our friends. Parking a walk away a nuisance but not a big issue if you are fairly mobile.

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Cliff House. The age and location of the cottage means that parking outside isn't possible, but there is parking 300 yards away (permit provided) as you found - the only difficulty is having to walk past the lovely village bakery and ice cream shop on the way! Temptation in the guise of a Cornish pasty...?! Tanya, Customer Support

We felt at home as soon as we had unpacked.

October 2015

Malcolm was very welcoming. The location was fantastic as were the views. House was equipped with anything you needed and beyond. A very happy stay there.

April 2015

A wonderful holiday cottage enjoyed by all of us.

March 2015

Lovely cottage. We didn't have the best of weather, so it was important that we had somewhere warm and cosy to return to at the end of each day, and this cottage was certainly that and more! The view from the cottage is stunning, the beach is just around the corner, the free wifi was very useful and there are some friendly little pubs a very short stroll away. Thanks Malcolm for making us feel so welcome.

February 2015

Lovely location, feels like home and owner most helpful.

July 2014

A little piece of paradise. Although we were blessed with beautiful weather, inclement weather would not have been a problem as the house was so well equipped and comfortable.

July 2014

It is a wunderful place, very lovely with the direct view to St. Michael's Mount. It was a great time and maybe we will return.

June 2014

Very helpful and friendly owner was a pleasure to deal with

June 2013

We would rate this among the best cottage that we have stayed (England, Italy, Australia). The description on your website does not do justice to the actual property. The owner, Malcolm is very helpful and friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this wonderful cottage and would strongly recommend this to future guests. We will come back to Cornwall again and Cliff House is one of the main reason for us to come back.

we was made to feel very very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Down to the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk and Cornish biscuits, to Malcolm meeting us at the cottage, even though we where over an hour late due to terrible traffic
