Please note: .

In a glorious position with panoramic views extending over the rooftops to St Michael's Mount and far across Mounts Bay towards Newlyn and Penzance, this spacious, individually designed detached house is tucked away in a secluded corner of the ancient market town of Marazion. With reversed accommodation to take full advantage of the sweeping views, Sandcastles is in a quiet yet central position just a short stroll from the nearby shops and restaurants, the glorious sandy beach and the cobbled causeway leading to St Michael's Mount.

Approached from its own garage where there is parking for one large car, half a dozen steps lead down to the front door opening into a useful entrance lobby with a practical quarry tiled floor, integral door to the garage and ample space for beachgear. An inner hallway with a solid ash floor gives access to three bright and cheerful ground floor bedrooms, one en-suite, and a good sized family bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath.

There is a double bedroom at the front of the property, a master bedroom with a 5ft Victorian brass bed and en-suite wet room with shower W.C. and hand basin and the third bedroom with a 5ft double bed at the rear. The latter two bedrooms overlook the walled garden and catch a glimpse of the castle atop St Michael's Mount.

From the hall, carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor and a light and airy open plan living room with a sunny Mediterranean feel, attractive mural on the wall, wooden ash flooring and extensive sea views. There is a smartly fitted kitchen with adjacent dining area, an ornamental fireplace and comfortable lounge seating arranged before a picture window enjoying far reaching views of the coastline. From here, French Windows lead out to a railed balcony with wonderful views of St Michael's Mount and the bay over the old rooftops of Marazion.

The owner reserves the top floor as a store room. At the rear of the property, a small walled and gated garden benefits from the mid-morning and evening sun and has a paved terrace set beneath a pergola, little area of lawn and a useful outside tap for when returning from the beach. The large, well maintained, memorial gardens adjacent to the property provide an additional quiet outside space for picnics and recreation.

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. 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. There is a local bus route that connects to the shopping town of Penzance, 3 miles, where there is a railway station and a regular ferry service to the Isles of Scilly.

PLEASE NOTE

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
