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.

On Christmas Eve, why not enjoy the traditional carol singing around the Christmas tree in Marazion Square with mulled wine and mince pies (just a 2 minute walk) and watch Father Christmas arrive in his sleigh and give presents to the children of the town. In addition, the well known Mousehole Christmas Lights can be seen in the distance from the balcony, and are well worth a short drive around the bay to see the spectacular display of lights in the pretty harbour.

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.

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.

PLEASE NOTE
- This property welcomes one medium sized dog only

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.
