Marazion is a charming ancient seaside town, dominated by views of St Michael's Mount 'the jewel in Cornwall's Crown'. It is a prime coastal location and is situated in Mounts Bay, which sweeps from the Lizard Point to Land's End.
Marazion’s two beaches are just 400 metres from the cottages. The main beach has sweeping golden sands and offers some of the best sailing, wind and kite surfing. During the summer this beach is patrolled by life guards and is dog free Easter to September. Top Tieb Beach is dog friendly and nestles directly below the cottages. Here rock pools lie waiting to be explored and pebbles and sea shells to be found.
Many other local beaches are in easy reach of Marazion and Sea Retreat these include Praa Sands, St Ives and Sennen on the North coast.
The area is packed with children’s amusements. Paradise Park with exotic birds, Cheney Hill Farm offering excellent indoor jungle barn and super slides, Flambards Adventure Theme Park, Seal Sanctuary, Goonhilly satellite station and a whole host more.
Situated in the South West there are a wide range of exciting coastal walks to be explored, including the Cornwall Coastal Path and the Pilgrims Way.
The Cornish cycle path from Marazion to Mousehole offers magnificent views of the bay. The RSPB Bird Sanctuary and Nature Reserve lies just to the west of the village on the Marazion Marsh which hosts many migratory and breeding birds.
So much to choose from that time will be the only defining factor.
