A very welcoming property.

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!

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.

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.

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

Thanks so much for taking the time to review your stay at The China Dolls House and we were so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at this gorgeous property. We'd love to welcome you back soon so you can enjoy those breathtaking views again. Tressa, Customer Support

Everything about this cottage was wonderful. The photos are a good representation and the description fits it perfectly.

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.

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!

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

That is most certainly a resounding seal of approval! We look forward to welcoming you back again next year. Tanya, Customer Support

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.

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.

Fantastic cottage, great location, spotlessly clean.

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.

We had a lovely holiday. Great cottage with gorgeous sea views.

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.

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!

Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

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.

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

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.

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

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

Suitable for a small active family in a wonderful location.

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.

a wonderful experience in a great location. thanks a lot mick

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

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location with amazing sea views from the lounge and the garden.

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.

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 !

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

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 !

A fantastic cottage with wonderful views in a great location. We would come again.

Perfect view of St Michaels Mount. Lovely pubs nearby and the terrace at the Mount Haven Hotel is lovely.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.

Kept to a high standard and within easy reach of shops and restaurants. Added bonus of having a parking space.

A delightful well equipped cottage with beautiful views. A perfect base from which to explore the surrounding areas.

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!

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.

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.

A very comfortable cottage in a super location with wonderful views

Great cottage in a great position!

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!

A fine cottage, super views and clean as a whistle. Five Stars.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A lovely place to stay, cottage cosy with everything you need, and lots to see and do in Marizion and nearby.

China Dolls House probably the best cottage we have ever used. Would rebook again.

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.

Everything was perfect - location, furnishings, comfortable beds, cleanliness etc. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Excellent view. Great location.

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.
