Occupying a stunning position overlooking Mount’s Bay and St Michael’s Mount, this charming ‘upside down’ cottage offers a scenic and comfortable base to call home while exploring the beaches dotted around Cornwall’s shimmering coastline. Beautifully styled, the upstairs living area stands out with its tall vaulted ceilings and stunning picture window giving way to breathtaking sea and Mount views. Kick back on the sofa with a glass of wine while gazing out onto the incredible vistas stretching out in front of you or gather around the dining table for a scenic meal cooked up in the sleek kitchen when you’re not out sampling the local restaurant scene. Downstairs, the snug bedroom offers yet more gorgeous sea views and a comfy bed promising a peaceful night’s sleep. When it comes to sightseeing and exploring nearby, make a beeline for Marazion Beach – a twelve-minute walk away – or head to St Michael's Mount which you can access on foot in twenty-three minutes by waiting for the tide to go out and walking across its causeway, or by taking a boat from Chapel Rock, fifteen minutes away on foot. You’ve got a bevvy of other beautiful beaches within easy reach too, including Perranuthnoe Beach (a five-minute drive), as well as dog-friendly ones too at Long Rock (a six-minute drive). Elsewhere, the charming village of Mousehole is a twenty-minute drive and Penzance is reachable by car in ten.
