Riverside is located in a peaceful setting. We were given a warm welcome and enjoyed the stay immensely.

The property was lovely, very well equipped and only a half hour walk to St Michaels Mount. Alison was very welcoming and helpful, there was a cream tea set up for our arrival too - we had a lovely time despite the awful weather!

Situated in a nice quiet area, local amenities, shops, beaches, are just a short drive away. Having a dog, it was important that there walks in the area that were on the doorstep and we weren't disappointed. The garden was excellent, and fenced all round so that our Labrador could not wander away. A truly excellent stay!

Had a great holiday and really lovely holiday cottage. Owner was friendly and had no issues at all. Very dog friendly and was great that the cottage had its own garden fenced off to allow our dog to be let out and be safe. For those who don't like walking much this may seem a little far from town (around a mile) but if like us you don't mind a niceRead more walk through the quiet countryside then it's a lovely peaceful location. Nice dog friendly pub about 15 minutes walk away with great sea views. Hide

A lovely apartment, well kept with central heating, perfect accommodation for two people. 20 minutes walk from delightful village with good pubs. We especially recommend the Kings Arms in Marazion. Pretty safe garden for our dog. Quiet area and close to coast and other attractions. We didn't meet the owners but we could contact them by phone.

A very comfortable and spacious apartment, with a safe and dog-friendly garden. A country location, only the sounds of birds and the clip-clop of horses passing by, and yet just a mile or so from St Michael's Mount and the supermarkets outside Penzance. An ideal place to stay if you like peace and quiet and privacy. Can't wait to go back!

Very well presented, spacious and well-equipped. The enclosed garden was a great bonus for the dog and would be lovely to sit in during the summer (we visited over New Year). Close to Marazion and handy for beaches and the coast path.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
