A fabulous large holiday home, The View in Marazion sleeps up to 11 guests in comfort and style. Six spacious bedrooms and two generous living areas make this home perfect for two families to share and socialise in, and the views across Mount’s Bay and over to St Michael’s Mount are unbeatable.
As well as providing a spacious and stylish interior, The View is also in an excellent location; set on the edge of picturesque Marazion, with its tiny shops, art galleries, and excellent cafés & restaurants — and with the spectacular coastline of Mount’s Bay on your doorstep, just waiting to be explored.
Inside The View
Before you even step into The View you are met with sensational views across the bay, giving you a taste of what to expect once you’re inside this fabulous home. As you step over the threshold into the interior, you are greeted with a large, bright and airy entrance hall, which leads off to the stylish open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, which is one of the show-stopping features of the property. These spaces flow together with the kitchen/dining space opening through to the living room — making an ideal social space for an easygoing and carefree holiday. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, and the living room has stunning views in two directions and opens out onto the balcony, facing south and west to make the best of sunny afternoons and spectacular sunsets. Three of the six spacious bedrooms are here on the first floor, one is a commanding en-suite with excellent sea views, then there is another lovely double room and a singe, as well as the family bathroom.
The lower floor benefits from an additional living area; the perfect space for you to get away from it all, for children or young adults to entertain themselves, or even for a second family to use. A further three bedrooms can be found on this level; one is en-suite, and there are two twins — as well a good sized shower room; a book case and activity chest on the lower landing provide plenty of games and things to do too.
Ample off-road parking for up to three cars is located at the back of the house, out of the way where they won’t disrupt your views. A large well-kept garden stretches round to the side and the front of the house with outdoor dining furniture; the perfect escape from a hard day’s work on the beach or exploring the local area.
Out and about
The tiny and popular heritage town of Marazion lies just moments away; you can wander down to it in a few minutes and either browse the boutique shops and galleries, spend time in cafés or the excellent local pub — or stroll over to the epic sweeping beach that stretches for two miles all the way to Penzance. Of course the unmissable thing to do is visit the Mount. At low tide you can walk across the historic cobbled causeway to the castle-topped island (National Trust), where you will find fairy-tale turrets, dazzling views and sub-tropical gardens, and a church dating back to medieval times. When the tide is high a boatman will take you across… We highly recommend walking out and boating back (or vice versa!). The beach here is one of the best — sandy, gently sloping, lifeguarded in summer and huge.
For food and drink, head to Ben’s Cornish Kitchen (book in advance) where you will find local produce simply cooked in comfortable surroundings. For pubs choose from the iconic Godolphin Arms with its contemporary beachside restaurant, or The King’s Arms pub is in the heart of the town, serving up the best in local ales with a small beer garden; ideal for people watching!
Nearby to the west are Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole, famed equally for pirates, art and fishing. To the east are miles of gorgeous coastal path leading to pretty Perranuthanoe and Prussia Cove… and on as far as your legs will carry you. Tremenheere Sculpure Gardens is situated just a couple of miles away from Marazion, where modern art installations line exotic plant-filled gardens, offering panoramic views of the bay. Whilst The View provides all of the comforts you could ask for in a holiday home, there is plenty to see and door when/if you step out the door.
Things we love
The fact that The View has two comfortable, well-equipped living areas is most certainly a desirable element of a house this size. The downstairs living area opens up to the large, lush garden through sliding doors, allowing children or young adults to use this area, whilst the adults enjoy breathtaking views from the kitchen-diner-living space upstairs. The house provides the perfect retreat within a retreat; if you are looking for a place that is suitable for a large family, or a couple of families then The View is the right choice. Of course the best thing about The View is… you’ve guessed it — the view! As many of our guests have commented, you could just sit and look at it all day.
