Majestic St Michael’s Mount 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 enclosed driveway and beautifully landscaped and planted gardens, which boast palm trees, a large lawn and a barbecue terrace. This eclectic, rustic three-storey Grade II Listed manor house has two main stairways, and steps hither and thither inside. Original slate floors run throughout the ground floor basement entrance; to the right is a dining-room and a games-room, on the left is a fabulous kitchen/diner with a double electric Aga and a huge farmhouse table with plenty of space for many a convivial gathering. Head through here, passing the pantry, utility-room and the enclosed covered and cobbled courtyard, and you come to the fantastic indoor heated swimming pool; overlooking the garden, the wonderful glazed pool-room has sunbeds on which to lounge 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’.

Also on the first floor are a twin room and a modern shower-room. If you are looking for a book to enjoy, you are sure to find something to your taste in the library. On the second floor are five further bedrooms and bathrooms, with the crowning glory an en suite bedroom with a six foot bed and fabulous views of ‘the Mount’ – is there a better place to wake up? As the house is set in the centre of the town, you will relish being able to explore all the interesting art galleries, shops, cafes and pubs on foot. The glorious stretches of golden sand are just a hop and a skip away, where you can take a boat trip across to the Mount – or walk to it across the tidal causeway, investigating the many rock pools as you go.
