Guest experience: Our visit to Marazion

St Michael's Mount

During our recent trip to Cornwall we spent a day at Marazion and next time we will definitely book a cottage in the town. We had a fabulous day on the beach in the shadow of St Michael's Mount, with the kids who loved splashing through the rock pools and digging sandcastles. Apparently the best game for a four year old is for daddy to steal her bucket and spade and make sandcastles as fast as she can smash them down!

Even the good old English weather couldn't detract from the fact that it was a very large, beautiful and clean beach looking onto St Michael's Mount. In the shelter of a pile of rocks, the sun was warm enough to make the rockpools wadeable which is exactly what the children chose to do. Perhaps it would've been wise to take their trousers off before letting them loose though!

After a stroll through the quaint little town we stopped at The Godolphin Arms pub for lunch. The choice of food was good and prices reasonable - the little patio garden even overlooked the beach with far reaching views past the Mount and over the bay towards Penzance and Newlyn. A very friendly visitor from the Netherlands offered to take our picture so we have a fab memento.

Overall we were really impressed with the character of the town and the facilities it offered, it was a highlight of our holiday and we can't wait to go back.

Bye bye!

Charlestown harbour

Charlestown is immediately recognisable to fans of Poldark as the harbour in the series. The joy of it as a location is that they’ve hardly had to change much at all.

Things to do in Falmouth

A holiday in Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without a day out in the historic harbour town of Falmouth. Sitting just south of Truro, Falmouth isn’t too far off the beaten track and makes for a great day out.
