  • Mrs Willett

    “We absolutely loved staying at the Watch.”

    It was very homely, cosy and clean. Everything was there that you’d need and the owner is very attentive, should you need assistance. It’s in the perfect location . A very special place, both location and accommodation.

The property

This beautiful cottage is situated in the village of Porthcurno, an assorted destination with sandy beaches, rocky coves, and winding village streets just waiting to be explored.

Whether you are coming together as a couple or spending time with the family, The Watch is the perfect opportunity to unwind amidst a calming interior and the quality furnishings, which reflect the cottages personality.

The open-plan sitting room will become your go to place for beautiful views of the sea; with a small balcony should you wish to wander outside for some fresh air on a pleasant morning.

Many evenings can be spent in the sitting room in front of the electric fire, or gathering at the dining table discussing the day’s events over a home-cooked meal.

Afterwards, choose from the wonderful bedrooms on offer, including a double with en-suite, and a twin, both stylishly presented in a refreshing colour scheme, with ample oak storage.

Nearby, the bathroom is complete with both a bath and a shower, so you can get ready in the way that suits you morning to nighttime.

Connected by causeway to the shore at Marazion is the National Trust’s beautiful St Michael’s Mount with its hilltop castle and Mediterranean gardens.

Walk across at low water and take one of the ferry boats back when the tide is up.

Penzance, 9 miles, with its winding streets, shops, clubs, restaurants and harbour is a must, as is the jumping-off point for day trips to the Scilly Isles.

The South West Coast Path passing through Penzance winds its way along the clifftops, adding to the charm of this lovely destination.
