A lovely cottage in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage and would heartily recommend to others. To be so close to such a beautiful beach and in such a nice village was amazing. The beach has restricted access for dogs but it made a relaxing evening walk and very much became a routine for us. A dog friendly beach is only minutes further on and we spent some lovely walks clambering over the rock pools. We didn't get great weather but even on the coldest and windiest days, the cottage was a lovely and cosy place to come back to. Every facility we could want was provided and we were so comfortable, it made up for the rain!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking some time to review your stay at the Haven and we're pleased to hear that you and the dog all enjoyed yourselves in spite of some wet weather. Do come again if you can! The beach dog restrictions finish at the end of September and dogs are free to run around until Easter Day - the beach to the east of the causeway is dog friendly, and dogs can walk over the causeway to the Mount at all times.

wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a cornish gem tucked away but so close to everything, we didnt need to use the car as beach ,shops and pubs all within walking distance. This is the most beautiful cottage we have stayed in so well equiped and fabulously comfy beds and so peaceful we had a wonderful holiday. Ruth.

Lovely cottage in Marazion

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at The Haven. The cottage is quite spacious for a property in the heart of a Cornish village, and is moments from the beach. Well equipped with everything you might need for your stay. Some of the decor is a little tired (hence 4 rather than 5 stars). But all was impeccably clean and well maintained. We would stay again if in this part of Cornwall.

A place to dream

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyded our two weeks in this part of cornwall. And espacially the haven; everytime when we`re opened the door we`re feeling beeing at home.

Marazion, Penzance and the coast path walks was a great pleasure for us.

My first trip to Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the Haven, and on the beach looking out to St Michael's Mount. It's super pretty!

There's been a good deal of messing about on beaches which is fab. Monty the dog enjoys running around and I leave a great trail as I bum-shuffle across the sand. I've decided eating it isn't very tasty so have given up on that idea.

My Daddy and uncle have bought all sorts of fish in Newlyn. Today they brought in two enormous crabs. I really wasn't sure about them, but I thought the brown meat was tasty.

I'm used to having everything done for me, and Mummy and Daddy and my Aunt and Uncle seemed to find everything they needed in the Haven to keep me happy.

Life is going to be a bit boring when we're not on holiday anymore. Boo!!

Comfortable home from home in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Just had to write and say thank you so much for a wonderful week at The Haven. This is the first time we have visited Marazion, but I am sure it won't be the last. Our three boys, aged 9, 7 and 5 have all had a great week, the weather was kind to us and we visited many local attractions, the highlights of which were Minack Theatre, Porthcurno Beach, Kynance Cove, Carbis Bay and Paradise Park. The house was a real home from home, very well equipped, with many thoughtful touches. It was great to be able to be on the beach within a minute of leaving the front door! We arranged for an online delivery from Sainsbury's and that worked perfectly - although I was worried they wouldn't find us, as the house is tucked away from the road, but this is a positive with young children as you don't have to worry about them running onto the road. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Haven - maybe I shouldn't be writing this, I don't want it to become too popular because we really hope to be able to book again!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your recommendations of the Haven and suggestions of things to do in the area - and pleased to hear you all enjoyed your holiday (and that Sainsburys can find the Haven!). We hope you can come again soon for more days on the beach and out and about locally.

A minute's level walk into the thriving village centre with shops, cafes, pubs, post office and art galleries, or to the wide sandy beach leading to the Causeway to St Michael's Mount. By the beach is a grassy field with an enclosed children's play area. Direct access to the South West coast path for walkers, and for cyclists to the Cornish Way cycle route. Bus stop in Marazion centre with regular services east to Helston and Falmouth and west to Penzance and beyond. An ideal base for exploring West Cornwall. Take the ferry from Penzance or fly from Lands End for a day on the Isles of Scilly, or catch a train for a scenic ride to St Erth and famous artists' town St Ives. Near to many beautiful National Trust and English Heritage properties and gardens. Places of interest include Gweek Seal Santuary, Minack Open Air cliff top theatre, Geevor Tin Mine, Flambards Experience Theme Park, Chysauster ancient village, Land's End. Plenty of opportunities for beach and water-sports at Marazion or nearby.
