The property

It's hard to escape the spectacular sea views from Castle Bay. In an elevated position overlooking the castle topped island of St Michaels Mount, the shimmering sea will form the backdrop whether you are relaxing on the sun terrace or curled up in front of the fire. If ever you need the excuse to have breakfast in bed, then this view is it.

A bungalow with a difference, this spacious detached property is hidden away from the main thoroughfare within large gardens and with ample parking, a rare find in this seafront town. The surprisingly rambling interior is individual in character and both the sitting room and kitchen dining room will cater for large groups to gather in comfort. The five bedrooms comprise of two comfortable doubles with king size beds, two twins and a bunk room for little ones.

The sandy beach is just a short walk away as is the pretty town centre where there are galleries, gift shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs for all budgets. A visit to the amazing island of St Michaels Mount is a must whilst staying in Marazion and at low tide it is possible to walk across the ancient causeway (at high tide you can hop on the small ferry). The medieval castle is surrounded by subtropical gardens but be sure to check opening times as these can vary. The nearby market town of Penzance can be reached in minutes by car but keen walkers may enjoy the level stretch of the coastal path from Marazion. Considered as the capital of West Cornwall, this historic harbour town has an abundance of individual shops and art galleries including the contemporary gallery space the Exchange, the largest west of Bristol. If the sun is shining, simply enjoy a leisurely stroll along the spectacular seafront promenade. To the north is St Ives, the most famous of the Cornish holiday towns with its sandy beaches and azure blue waters. The town is perhaps best reached by train from Penzance along the coastal branch line, arguably one of the most scenic routes in the country.
