Mrs Dunn October 2023
Our 3rd stay at China Dolls, 1st time since re modelled. The changes are fantastic, well thought out. It’s a very clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. View great and parking space a real bonus. We will definitely stay here again and can highly recommend.
Mr Carrick September 2023
We loved this property. Nicely decorated and very well appointed. A perfect stay for us, Thank you we hope to return,
Mr Claridge September 2023
View great. Location good. Well equipped and comfortable Holiday accommodation.
Mr Rae July 2023
This is our second visit to this cottage. The improvements from last year make this a perfect wee cottage in a fabulous small town. Our teenage daughter loved her new bedroom and the kitchen upstairs was a brilliant. Great having the parking with the garden a real bonus. The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. We’ll be back in the future.
Mr Cobley July 2023
A very well equipped cottage and having 3 bathrooms is a real bonus.
Mrs Green May 2023
Beautiful cottage in the most beautiful setting. Views from the cottage are just breathtaking. Everything you want and need in the cottage. Lovely cosy and homely. Garden fantastic for late night BBQs. 5 minute walk from st micheals mount beach and some lovely pubs and restaurants.
Mrs Hall April 2023
We loved our stay at China Dolls House, it’s very homely, clean & comfortable! Views are amazing & Marazion is a very friendly place! We would definitely visit China Dolls House again
Mrs Cottingham April 2023
Perfect cottage, well equipped, with views to die for. Superb in every way.
Mrs Worbey April 2023
Beautiful views, fantastic cottage, great hosts.
Mrs Freeman March 2023
A lovely cottage, matchless views, but steep stairs outside and indoors probably not best suited to older couples with dogs or parents with young children
Mrs Hobday October 2022
As previous guests have mentioned the view from the lounge is magnificent. We thought the stone steps leading to the garden were hazardous, especially when wet and this should be included in the description. The location of the cottage is excellent, just a short walk into the lovely town of Marazion, however the cottage is on the very busy road running through the town and is extremely noisy all the time.

Thanks for your lovely review - we're delighted that you enjoyed the breath-taking views and the proximity to beautiful Marazion and St Michael's Mount. We do mention the steep steps in our description; we're sorry if the weather made them a little tricky to negotiate. We hope that you enjoyed the many beautiful walks and attractions in the surrounding area and hope to welcome you back in the future. Julie, Customer Support
Mr Smith October 2022
Well equipped cottage with amazing views.
Mr Bond October 2022
A very comfortable cottage with magnificent views, well located to walk into the centre of Marazion and a safe garden for our dogs. This made for a very relaxing holiday.
Mrs Underwood August 2022
Beautiful property with stunning views and close to the town of Marazion. This is our second time staying at the China Dolls House and we absolutely love it! There is a bus stop just outside the property which was super convenient for going to Penzance when we wanted. And we spent every night watching the world go by through the gorgeous bay window. The bedrooms are super comfy and stayed lovely and cool during the heatwave so sleeping was easy. The showers and bath were perfect for our family and having dinner in the garden was perfect! Thank you so much for an amazing house to make our holiday perfect.
Mr Rae July 2022
China Doll House was fabulous. This is our 4th year in a row in Marazion and we enjoyed this one the most. Yes we had great weather this year, but the house really helped us unwind and relax. The garden really helped us to appreciate the great views and weather. Donna and John were superb and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The two bathrooms were great(15 year old daughter loved hers). Kitchen was superb and the views from the beanbag at the window were enjoyed by all 3 of us and Belle the dog. Car parking spot was a great bonus. We can’t wait to come back.

Mrs Cottrell July 2022
Beautiful location and views. Very clean and comfortable cottage with the extra benefit of the personal touch from the owners. Would recommend to family and friends.
Mr Highfield June 2022
A very welcoming property.
Ms Jenkin May 2022
Beautiful view of the Mount and the bay from the cottage window. Our dog loved the garden and had a very chilled Cornish vibe all week!
Mrs Thompson April 2022
We noticed that some guests had made comments regarding the size of the parking slot. We had a fairly large 4x4 and had no problems parking - reversing in, is the best option to get onto the road. We would happily stay in the China Dolls House again.
Mrs Smith March 2022
A great cottage in a beautiful location. Very well equipped and very comfortable. Plenty of walks from the doorstep, no need to use car everyday. Very easy to relax soaking in the views. Easy walk into Marazion, & this early in the year pretty quiet. Although some businesses hadn’t yet opened. Thoroughly recommend, we would return.
Mrs Ash-Smith December 2021
We loved every second of staying in China Dolls House Cottage! The location was absolutely perfect, with beautiful views of the sea. The cottage was so comfortable, with plenty of furniture to accommodate all of us, and lovely cosy bedrooms and the most kitchen equipment I’ve ever seen! We hope to stay again soon

Mrs Crombleholme September 2021
Everything about this cottage was wonderful. The photos are a good representation and the description fits it perfectly.
Miss Astill August 2021
The stunning views and excellent location of the China Dolls House, the cottage was like home from home and included everything you need for a magical holiday. It really was a great base for exploring beautiful Cornwall. A very dog friendly village with plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.
Mr Moroney July 2021
We really enjoyed our stay at the China Dolls House.
The house was as described on the 'Classic' website with a couple of updates to the accommodation not shown on the pictures (fencing on the upper garden so a lot safer for kids/dogs).
Parking: I thought this could be an issue but our Volvo V90 fitted like a glove (just) and we were able to close the gates for security. A full sized Range Rover/Q7 or similar may struggle to get on the drive so bear this in mind when booking as alternative parking is very limited.
The location is ideal for days out to St Ives, Lands End, Minnack etc.
The owner communication was absolutely spot on. Really helpful and just added to a great stay. Overall, I cannot recommend the China Dolls House enough, so much so that we will hopefully see you next year!
Mrs Brown May 2021
This is a very private property which we felt comfortable in right from the minute we stepped over the doorstep. So much so we booked it for next year 3 days into our holiday
Reply from Classic Cottages
That is most certainly a resounding seal of approval! We look forward to welcoming you back again next year. Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Nunn May 2021
A fabulous location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and St Michaels Mount. The bean bag in the bay window was a very popular spot to watch the world go by.
Mrs Welch October 2020
We had a very enjoyable stay in The Chine Dolls House. The cottage is in an excellent location within easy access of several beaches, pubs and the coast path. The views from the living room window and the garden are superb. Marazion itself offers easy access to many interesting places to visit such as Penzance and St Ives. The cottage contained everything we needed for our stay and was warm, cosy and inviting during our October stay. When we arrived the cottage was incredibly clean.
Mrs Jones October 2020
Fantastic cottage, great location, spotlessly clean.
Mr Baker September 2020
We absolutely love the china dolls house. We have stated here many times now. As soon as you enter you feel relaxed and at home. The views from the top lawn and the sitting room are second to none. The house is well equiped and feels like home. We hire cottages on a regular basis as do our families and we have yet to beat this cottage.
Mrs Warrington August 2020
We had a lovely holiday. Great cottage with gorgeous sea views.
Mr Wells October 2019
The views from the living room windows upstairs in the property are fantastic. You can see when it is possible to walk on the the causeway to St Michael's Mount from a window upstairs. The property is very well equipped and comfortable. The location is very good being a short walk into the centre of Marazion. It is easy to drive around the local area or catch a bus to places like Penzance. Plenty of local interest such as the seal sanctuary at Gweek, Mousehole, Newlyn and Penzance. Also easy to get to St Ives. Pubs, shops and places to eat within a short walk.
Ms Dixon October 2019
A wonderful cottage, with fantastic sea views and of St Micheals Mount. The bay window was a source of fascination for Darcy and Coco watching the buses go past!
Ms Gould August 2019
Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Ms Hockney July 2019
This is a very dog friendly property with a secure garden which made life so easy for us with the dogs and so good with the stair gate to keep them from running upstairs to the living room. We went to the beach every morning before 8 and after 7 every evening and the dogs loved it. The children also loved it and we had many bbqs in the garden enjoying the sea view as well as fish and chips on the beach only a few minutes walk away. Great for exploring the area. We loved it.
Ms Weston July 2019
For info can park a Mazda 6 estate in the parking area but is tight. Not a problem for us however, thought you'd like to know for future reference/queries. It was a great stay.

Thanks for reviewing The China Dolls House and we hope you had a great time overall. There is private parking for one car as mentioned in the description and we're really pleased you managed to get your larger vehicle in which will be great comfort for future guests. Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Bartlett July 2019
The China Dolls House is well-placed for the facilities in Marazion and lovely views to St Michael’s Mount from the bay window. However, parking would be a challenge for larger vehicles. Lovely area with plenty to see and do.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for reviewing The China Dolls House - we're so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The private parking is suitable for one car although we do appreciate that cars are getting larger and longer which may mean more of a challenge for some. Alison, Customer Support
Mr Ford June 2019
Property was immaculate and spotlessly clean can't fault house or facilities. Liked the fact that the owner contacted us personally to make sure everything was ok on our arrival, and when we did have a problem he sorted very speedily. Loved the house and we had a lovely week but Marazion is really not disabled friendly which was disappointing. The locals residents have encouraged us to contact the local council to express our concerns which we will do. The dog friendly beach in front of China Doll House was fantastic (Accessed via steps down side street & passageway from the Copper Spoon cafe) most days we had the whole beach to ourselves absolute paradise. Sandbar Beach Bar at Praa Sands was also great in the evening for food and drink with dogs allowed in the bar/terrace and on the beach after 7pm
Ms Davies April 2019
Suitable for a small active family in a wonderful location.
Ms Oliver April 2019
Stayed here for a week at Easter 2019. What a find. Excellent location, fantastic view. Also near a lovely pub where we ate four times! It was lovely not having to use the car each day. Went into the town every day and on the beach at least once, even in gale force winds and rain on the second day. Great to find such a lovely property that is dog friendly. Lovely to have complimentary tea tray and soaps. We hope to return next year. We absolutely love the area around Marazion.
Mr Cope March 2019
a wonderful experience in a great location. thanks a lot mick
Mrs Rabbitts September 2018
Had a lovely stay at Dolls House. A comfortable house with excellent view of Michaels Mount and sea from lounge windows. A good base to explore beaches,towns,villages. Dogs were happy there and loved Porthkidney Kidney Beach and LongBeach both dog friendly beaches. Hopefully we will return
Mrs Osborne September 2018
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with amazing sea views from the lounge and the garden.
Mrs Wicks September 2018
As a family we have holidayed in Cornwall for many years always in Marazion or Penzance, but we can honestly say that our stay in the China Dolls House was the best we'd ever had the place is beautiful and so relaxing. We would certainly recommend it to family & friends without the slightest hesitation.
Ms Forster September 2018
We really enjoyed our stay at the China Dolls House. It is well equipped, has a wonderful view and is in an excellent location. Having a parking was important for us although it might be a tight for a large car. We really appreciated that the owner contacted us shortly after our arrival and was very helpful and efficiently solved some minor problems we had. Marazion is a nice place and a good starting point to visit Cornwall. Merci !
Reply from Classic Cottages
We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely property - we'd have to agree that Marazion is a great location (with a fabulous pasty shop, small but perfectly formed!). The parking space is a real bonus - we've seen large vehicles parked there previously (you can leave the gates open if necessary) so are confident that most vehicles won't have an issue. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Clements August 2018
The best accommodation, best location. Would love to visit in the winter......great views from the window and cosy rooms. Good to have the dogs catered for too - so important when you have family pets. Absolutely loved it !
Mrs Rimmer June 2018
A fantastic cottage with wonderful views in a great location. We would come again.
Ms Jenkin May 2018
Perfect view of St Michaels Mount. Lovely pubs nearby and the terrace at the Mount Haven Hotel is lovely.
Mrs Lowe September 2017
The China Dolls House is a wonderful find. A very well equipped cosy cottage with a fabulous view, great parking and dog friendly. We have now enjoyed three lovely holidays there and would love to go back.
Mrs Muir May 2017
The cottage has fabulous views and we all enjoyed sitting in the window in the upstairs lounge. Private parking is a real bonus, as parking spaces are limited in Marazion. Marazion itself is a lovely place and a good base for sightseeing in the area.
Miss Tilley May 2017
A delightful cottage, with a stunning view of St. Michael's Mount. So many fabulous places to visit nearby, St.Ives, Mousehole, The Minnack Theatre, The Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, St.Michael's Mount Castle and Gardens, Trengwaiton Gardens and the list goes on. Some excellent pub grub a few mins walk from the cottage. Beautiful coastal path and rural walks from your door, not to mention all of the yummy tea shops along the way including The Copper Spoon in Marazion,The Cabin at Paranuthnoe and The Rock Pool in Mousehole. We enjoyed every second, even when it rained.
Mrs Dunn April 2017
In an excellent position and very comfortable. Has everything you would need whilst on holiday. Lovely view sitting in the garden enjoying either a cup of tea or glass of wine. One of the most relaxing properties we have stayed in. Would recommend to family and friends.
Dr Dunn March 2017
Thank you for an amazing stay in your beautiful property. A week just wasn't enough and I really hope we will stay here again - not something we usually do, but we absolutely loved it here.
Ms Clark October 2016
This was our third visit and we love the property. As walking the coast path, no plan for an imminent revisit but it will always remain on our 'love' list and we could well be back in the future - just for a rest :)
Mrs Lowe September 2016
Our second visit to The China Dolls House and we enjoyed every minute. The house is very well equipped and the view is superb! To find all this and dog friendly is great.
Mr Wilburn August 2016
China Dolls House is a lovely cottage with all its amenities and very dog friendly. The enclosed garden was ideal for our two dogs and when we couldn't find them around the cottage we knew they were safe up in the garden. Views are absolutely fantastic from the lounge window. We also liked the close proximity to the town centre. We walked into Marazion several times.
Mrs Berry July 2016
We loved our holiday at Marazion. The China Doll House is lovely, fabulous location, beautiful views. Ideal for dogs. Close to shops, beaches, lovely walks. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Poolman July 2016
Kept to a high standard and within easy reach of shops and restaurants. Added bonus of having a parking space.
Mrs Puttock March 2016
A delightful well equipped cottage with beautiful views. A perfect base from which to explore the surrounding areas.
Mrs Bolton October 2015
A great cottage in a fantastic location! The kitchen is so well equipped, it's a pleasure to cook and prepare food there, and as the sitting room's upstairs, the view of the sea and mount is wonderful. Personally I spent a lot of time sitting in the bay window (with Hector our hound) looking out to sea, and across to the mount - just lovely!
Mr Burrow September 2015
This was our second visit to the dolls house, and we loved as much as our last visit, its just wonderful. From the comfort, to the view from the living room window and down to the town of Marazion itself. simply superb.
Mrs Snodin September 2015
Beautiful cottage and grounds, outstanding sea views. The cottage was clean and well equipped to a high standard, very comfortable, we enjoyed every minute we was there. Missing getting up and looking at the sea views they was spectacular. Owner was very nice, he telephoned us on our arrival with a very warm welcome.
Mr Banks August 2015
A very comfortable cottage in a super location with wonderful views
Mrs Lambert June 2015
Great cottage in a great position!
Mrs Cox May 2015
The cottage was spacious (even though the name could make you think otherwise), and homely (full of luxury). The location made it the perfect base to see the amazing local area, (and Marazion was also lovely and had everything you could want at hand - great shops and places to eat). The view from the lounge window was fantastic (you could spend hours just looking)............ We never thought we would want to stay in the same property twice, but we do!
Mr Alden April 2015
A fine cottage, super views and clean as a whistle. Five Stars.
Mr Petford March 2015
This is a fantastic cottage very well equipped and in a prime location with parking. You can be looking out the window at the mount see the tide is out and within 30 minutes you can be walking around the mount. There is so much to see round this part of cornwall and is all easy access from this stunning property.
Mrs White October 2014
It was lovely to arrive and find tea/coffee milk and sugar for us along with a packet of biscuits. Very nice touch and very welcome. We had a good holiday in this lovely property.
Mr Harris September 2014
A great location to visit The Lizard, Far West & parts of the North Coast of Cornwall (you can visit Lands End, The Lizard & St Ives easily within 20-30 minutes range), China Doll's House has stunning views across to St Michael's Mount, from both the dining/living room area and the garden. The house is very nicely set up and, once you get used to the slightly upside down layout, it's a really lovely setting. I'd heartily recommend the property for couples especially, as it is a very romantic setting, and I'm sure kinds would love the layout. The proximity of the road may be an issue for slightly fractious dogs but it really isn't too much of a problem. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Another bonus is three superstores (Sainsburys, Tescos & Morrisons) within 4 miles at Penzance/Lomg Rock...very useful... try China Doll's House for a really relaxing holiday with magnificent views and links to some wonderful areas in Cornwall.
Mr Burrow September 2014
Quite simply a lovely comfortable cottage that's very well appointed with a breath-taking view from either the living room or the garden, we adored it and felt at home from the first minute to the last.
Mrs Drew September 2014
A lovely place to stay, cottage cosy with everything you need, and lots to see and do in Marizion and nearby.
Mr Morgan August 2014
China Dolls House probably the best cottage we have ever used. Would rebook again.
Mrs Clowes May 2014
It is not often that you are able to find cottages with the high standards of comfort and facilities that the China Doll has to offer which are 'dog friendly' where you can feel completely at home. The added bonus of an enclosed garden with a parking area makes this an ideal property. The views from the bay widow across to St Michaels Mount are truly spectacular and make for a truly relaxing holiday.
Mrs Dziegiel April 2014
Everything was perfect - location, furnishings, comfortable beds, cleanliness etc. Thank you.
Mrs Butler February 2014
Very impressive view from the bay window in the China Dolls House. I could sit and watch the waves and tide move in and out exposing the causeway to the regal St Michaels Mount. The house itself was so lovely, tastefully decorated and warm and cosy. So enjoyed my stay there.
Dr Duignan August 2013
We were looking for a well-equipped property with a sea view, broadband, that accepted dogs, had off-street parking, and was close to a beach where you could exercise your dogs in September. The China Dolls House fulfilled all these requirements ... and more. We were extremely pleased with the property - and the efficient way we were dealt with by Classic Cottages - and would happily recommend it to others.
Mrs Parkin August 2013
A fantastic place to stay - beautifully decorated and equipped with a stunning view of St Michael's Mount. Lovely sunny garden which gets the sun well into the evening for post excursion relaxing. We had a great holiday exploring the area - including Lands End, Porthlevan, Mousehole and St Ives (on the no 300 open top bus from Marazion Square - easy). Highly recommended.
Mrs Bromley August 2013
Wonderful cottage - really well equipped and spotlessly clean. Excellent decor. Fantastic lounge/dining room with stunning views.
Marazion is a superb place to have a holiday and we also enjoyed trips to Minack Theatre, Scilly Isles, Sennen Cove and Trengwainton Gardens (NT). Could have done with two weeks as plenty more to see and do!
Mr Forrest July 2013
Excellent view. Great location.
Mrs Mills June 2013
Perfect location to walk to St Michaels Mount from the cottage. On the SW coastal path . Good local bus service into Penzance. Lovely coastal walk from cottage to The Victoria to Perranuthnoe - excellent food. Lovely en suite bathroom with excellent walk in shower. Baker in village does wonderful pasties.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
