Old Stores, Marazion
Standing in the narrow streets of Marazion for over 200 years, just off the shoreline, is this deceptively large, former grocer's store which will surprise any visitor with its generous spaces and character features. This seafarers' town, linked by a tidal causeway to the embattled 14th century castle St Michael's Mount, once visited by Pilgrims to the Benedictine Chapel, reflects the historic nature of this destination and all the fascinating events through the years around Penzance (only 10 minutes away by car), and further to Land's End. With a safe sandy beach, small cafes, restaurants and bars Marazion locals warmly welcome visitors. Guests can enjoy browsing around the many galleries and curio shops, or exploring along the coastline. The Old Stores blends all of the charms of this historical and 'Enid Blyton' town, and once over the threshold the authentic ambience of old beams, slate window sills, brick pillars, wood floors and a traditional Inglenook will immediately capture the imagination. The entire ground floor is innovatively open plan with a split-level dining room and smart galley kitchen. Upstairs quirky little steps up and down add to the intrigue and a galleried master bedroom boasts a romantic four poster bed. How many can say that they have bathed in the deep roll top bath reclaimed from the Captain's quarters of a tea clipper? To the rear is another bonus; steep steps (not suitable for the infirm) lead up to an enclosed lawn and an elevated patio with views of the sea over neighbouring rooftops. There is a reserved space in the Church car park and there is also private parking for one small car that must first navigate a very narrow lane (if you cannot negotiate the lane or have a medium or large car there is a public car park nearby).
