Experience - The Area...

With views of St Michaels Mount and the Bay over the old roof tops and chimneys of Marazion, this freshly renovated, end of terrace, stone cottage is tucked away in a quiet yet central part of this popular small resort. With inverted accommodation to take advantage of its views, The Beach Retreat is just a couple of minutes walk from two fabulous sandy beaches and the cobbled causeway leading to St Michaels Mount.

The large, well maintained, memorial gardens adjacent to the property provide an additional quiet outside space for picnics and recreation and the splendid sandy beaches are only a 2 minute walk down the hill as are a selection of local shops, restaurants, pubs and art galleries. Whilst there is a summer daytime dog ban on the main beach in Marazion, there are also two well-kept secret beaches within a short stroll that are dog-friendly for canine guests to enjoy.

The RSPB Marazion Marsh Nature Reserve is favoured by birdwatchers and the famous attraction of St Michael's Mount can be reached on foot over a causeway at low tide, or by foot ferry at high tide. The shopping town of Penzance, 3 miles, has supermarkets, a railway station and a ferry service to the Isles of Scilly.

Stay - The Accommodation...

A gated path and one step leads down to a paved patio which benefits from the afternoon and evening sun and from here, a stable door opens to a central hallway giving access to three comfortable and light, carpeted bedrooms. There is a single bedroom with a window seat overlooking the patio, a master bedroom has a 5ft wooden framed bed, and the third bedroom offers the versatility of a 5ft double or 2ft 6in zip linked twin beds. To complete the ground floor accommodation there is a bathroom W.C. with hand basin, shower over the bath and heated towel rail.

From the hall, carpeted stairs wind up to the first floor and an attractive open plan living room with a beamed ceiling rising to the apex of the roof, tall triple aspect windows and polished timber flooring. There is a smartly fitted galley kitchen in one corner with views to the castle atop St Michaels Mount, an adjacent raised dining area, and a contemporary lounge settee with additional wingback chairs facing an electric fire. A glazed door leads out to a timber railed balcony with views over the Bay towards Penzance and Newlyn; ideal for enjoying the spectacular sunsets.

The storage heating and double glazing provides ample heating for all year round letting and the electric fire with flame effect and mood light gives a warm and cosy feel even when heating is not required. From the entrance hall, half a dozen steps lead down to a lower lobby and the original front door providing a convenient short cut when exploring the town on foot. Young children and pets will require supervision outside as the patio is only partially enclosed. There is parking for one medium size car in a private garage (dimensions available on request); further parking is in the Kings Road public car park about 250 yards away.

Don't forget...

- This property welcomes one medium sized dog only
