Enjoy the beautiful Cornish coast on a self-catering holiday in Marazion, where the setting could not be lovelier. This town is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a causeway links it to one of Britain's most iconic landmarks. St. Michael's Mount is a half-mile offshore and is instantly recognisable. When the tide permits, you can walk across to the island, or you can catch a small ferry boat. It's worth the trip, just to see the castle there and the sub-tropical gardens. Seeing the castle floodlit (on Sunday and Tuesday evenings) is always a treat.
What Marazion offers for Cottage Breaks
Many artists live in Marazion and show their artwork in the art galleries found in the town. Spending time in the town is enjoyable when browsing for gifts, relaxing in one of the cafes or pubs, or taking a walk on the promenade. Families like to go to Folly Field, where you can play with a ball or fly a kite. If you're interested in the local history, Marazion Museum, located on the ground floor of the Town Hall, contains documents and other artefacts.
Of course, cottage holidays by the sea mean spending time on the beach. Marazion has golden sands and clean, safe bathing in the clear waters of Mount's Bay. The beach at Marazion is probably one of the best in Cornwall!
