My whole family loved this place and want to go back again another summer
Mr Holyoake December 2020
Great place to stay, views are brilliant and great for trainspotting. Don't forget to wave.
Mrs McLean October 2020
Castle View is a lovely place to stay with private parking. It was clean on arrival, with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The views are stunning. Excellent location to enjoy a quiet retreat. The infrequent trains passing was not a problem and did not bother us at all. A lovely holiday.
Mrs Bradley October 2020
We were very pleased with the house and the views, warmth and comfort and will book again for an out of season let.
Mrs Walker October 2020
The patio could have been cleaned and weeded the BBQ if we wanted to use was very rusty so unusable Apart from a few gripes the position of our accommodation was great
Mrs Strowger October 2020
Fantastic place to stay. Amazing sea views, lovely and toasty warm and had all the facilities we needed.
We had a great stay and would love to stay again. Thank you :)
Ms Cousins September 2020
We love the fantastic views from this property which can be enjoyed whatever the weather from the comfy sofa or outside on the balcony. Everything we require is available and the bed is really comfortable. We love the ease of walking access to Marazion & Penzance and love the food at the Mexico Inn.
Mrs Davies August 2020
What a lovely property. Fully met our expectations. Very comfortable and very well thought out even down to the books and alfred hitchcock dvds. Loved the living area being on the first floor to make the most of the stunning views. Even loved seeing the trains which were few and far between and enjoyed watching the kite and wind surfers. Even managed some star gazing. Would highly recommend this property.
Mrs Carter July 2020
Beautiful cottage within a very short walk of the beach, as well as being within a longer walk of both Marazion and Penzance. The train tracks being so close was a bit of a shame as they could be quite loud. The view from the balcony (when there wasn't a train!) was stunning and sitting out of an evening waving to the many passers by on the coastal walk between Long Rock and Marazion was quite a treat.
Mrs Withall October 2019
Lovely place and would definitely book again. Loved the location and views
Mrs Lemon October 2019
Wonderful house with brilliant views. Located in a bit of a run down area but lots happening around so will improve in time. Oven slow to heat up & has to be set higher than expect. Wheelie had lost its lid (reported to housekeeper) & That made it heavy to put out (with water from rain). You get used to the trains rumbling past. Otherwise a favourite of ours & somewhere for great family time.

Lovely house in fab location and those views are amazing.
Mr Jackson August 2019
We enjoyed a lovely fortnight at the property. It was very clean and well equipped as we were a family of 6 including a dog. There is the a coastal path next to the beach to walk your dog and dogs can go on the beach before 0800 hours. If you turn right onto the path dogs are not restricted. In fact having a pet was not a hindrance as lots of pubs and restaurants were happy to let dogs in. Your local The Mexican Inn lets dogs in the bar but not the restaurant, meals can be served in the bar area to. The food was amazing as were the local ales. As stated, the train line is right outside, it did not detract from our enjoyment as we were out most of the day but even in the evenings a few would pass but they take just a few seconds and they are gone. We took earplugs just in case and I was not woken up at any point by them. The view is amazing with always something to look at. The location is central, with Penzance, Lands End and the Tin coast one direction and then St Ives just around the corner. Would definitely recommend.

Person on top floor needs to have a good bladder as found a challenge to get down 2 floors in night & handrail on stairs switches half way down which takes getting used to in the dark! Otherwise fab location, clean and wonderful views of st michaels mount!!

Thank you so much for your review. That can be one of the trade offs for a house with mainly reversed level accommodation, but we think it's worth the extra effort to enjoy that fantastic view from the sitting-room - we're so pleased you thought so too! Tanya, Customer Support
Mr Cole May 2019
A property that makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in. The furniture was comfortable and perfect for just relaxing and taking in the superb view of Mounts bay. All your requirements are catered for and everything works well. A great location for walking along the sea front or driving to nearby villages like Marazion or towns like Penzance. Trains do pass by the front of the property ever so often, but to be honest they become barely noticeable after a day or two, if you're into train spotting then you will love Castle view and you're into tremendous views then you will be blown away. Welcome pack of Scones/cream and Jam was a wonderful sign of things to come.. We would recommend Castle view to anyone... excellent holiday property.
Mrs Simpson May 2019
Really loved our stay here and would definitely like to stay again, very well equipped house with a beautiful view. Really good location for walking into Penzance or to visit St Michael’s mount along the cycle path.
Miss Jordan March 2019
Absolutely amazing view from a well thought out and comfortable property. The train noise blends into the background really quickly.
Mrs Alexander January 2019
Stunning view and the location was perfect for buses to all areas. Also an easy walk with the dog to Penzance and Marazion. The Mexico Inn next door was fabulous. The apartment has everything you need in it ..... and more! We had a fantastic stay watching the weather fronts roll by! Just be aware of the trains early morning if you are used to living in a quiet area - I'm sure if you live in a town or city normally, then they wouldn't bother you. (They stop overnight anyway). Thanks for a great stay!
Mr Tunnicliff November 2018
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Castle View and feel that the owners have put everything into making the property as welcoming as possible. The level of attention to detail is exceptional and absolutely nothing has been overlooked in the way of facilities, comfort and luxury. And please don't let the occasional passing train put you off - we live in a very quiet small Wiltshire village and the infrequent train noise was not a problem for us. Western Cornwall has everything that could be desired in the way of exceptional scenery, beautiful coastal walks, varied attractions, good food and most welcoming locals - Castle View also fully meets that standard! There really is no need to go abroad for holidays when we are so spoilt here at home.

Mrs England October 2018
Excellent accommodation, would book again.
Mrs Clarke August 2018
A very nice house, clean and generally well maintained. Shame about the location, next to industrial area. But the main problem was the trains. They are very close and ran much more frequently than we had been told, only stopping between about 1 - 5am. Frequently woke us up, along with poor glazing and terrible thin curtains. Had had enough of the trains by the middle of the week.

Thanks for your review of Castle View - we're sorry that you were disappointed with the location of the property. Castle View is only a short walk from Long Rock Beach separated only by a railway line as detailed in the description though we are sorry that you were disturbed. There is an industrial estate in Long Rock though this is across the main road from Castle View and we've included an aerial shot of the area within the description to pinpoint the property's position.

Mrs Dalton-Morgan July 2018
We absolutely loved staying here. The accommodation is beautifully appointed and the views over St Michael’s Mount are stunning. Please don’t be put off by the railway line. Trains are quite infrequent and hardly noticed (we live in the country and are used to complete silence and they didn’t bother us). Good location for visiting local beaches etc. The local pub which is 30 seconds away serves excellent meals too (and takeaway). Highly recommend. We would love to return.
