Flat With Sea Views, between Penzance and Marazion



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Apartment in Long Rock, Nr. Marazion, Cornwall, England - Few minutes walk to the beach

The flat is a stunning three bedroom property with ample accommodation, sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms. Along with the three bedrooms (two double, one with two single beds) there is a newly fitted family bathroom with double shower and large kitchen/diner/living room. The kitchen is fantastic and includes a double cooker. The flat also benefits from being close the beach, on a direct bus route from Penzance station and a perfect central location to explore West Cornwall. The village store is right below you and the village also has a Post Office and two great pubs within a few hundred yards.

The flat had everything we could have possibly needed. The owners have thought of everything :-).......It is large, spacious, clean and we had a wonderful time. The flat is central to most locations and we saw every part of this area that we had planned to.

I would recommend staying here to all of my friends and family in Australia..........Thank you again!!!!!

Family Holiday

  • 2 of 5

We stayed with our family of 6 a week's holiday in this apartment. From the equipment the apartment was as described. The carpet, the apartment was a bit dark and musty. Under the 2nd bedroom the shop was in the continuous, even at night, the refrigerators hummed. From the balcony, which was, however, not to use, we had sea views. But you could not reach directly this because between home and the sea ran the railway line. In addition, before the apartment was a bus stop, a double-decker bus stopped at the approximately every 20 minutes. The apartment is located about 4 km from the center in a suburb Long Rock. There was only one restaurant in the immediate vicinity. They were otherwise dependent on the car. And we found it a pity not to have any personal contact with the owner. The key was picked up at the beginning of the week at the store and leave again at the end.

Otherwise, the area is gorgeous. You can do from there many excursions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I am sorry that you missed the personal contact with us. We do have a housekeeper to deal with any issues and are always available via email but since we live abroad personal contact isn't possible. I'm sorry that you found the shop below noisy , Some guests find the shop and regular bus service helpful. We have endeavoured to make the property as bright as possible. An old granite building can appear dark to some. Thank you for pointing out the features that were not ideal for your needs as this helps inform future guests in making a choice. All the best Rachel

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed in the flat from a Saturday to Thursday. It was centrally located and we got to many sites in less than an hour. The flat is close to several grocery stores and the beach.

The apartment itself was large and had everything we needed. Great value! We would stay again!

Good base for a lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Had a fantastic time staying in Cornwall - we walked for miles!

The flat was nice but smelt a little damp when we first arrived. The smell went when we opened a few windows so it wasn't a major problem for us.

It was spacious and clean and tidy. The kitchen had a massive fridge with an ice-maker, although we couldn't work out how to use it! The weather wasn't that great and rained quite a bit so we made use of the washing machine and dryer a few times and they were better than what I have at home!

Large lounge, one large double, one small double and quite a large twin room.

The people in the shop below weren't that friendly so I wouldn't recommend asking them questions!

Please be aware that you cannot get to the beach down the side path as there is a railway line blocking it, you have to walk down the road about 1/4 to 1/2 a mile away. (The photograph of the beach sign is a little misleading and was quite a disappointment to us.)

Overall it was a good base for our dog walking holiday.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Apologies if the beach photograph is misleading, the crossing to the beach was closed a few years ago. I will remove the photo from the gallery. Thank you for the other feedback. The ice maker on the fridge causes a leak when it is enabled therefore the housekeeper makes sure the freezer is stocked with ice. I will add a note of explanation on our welcome materials. I'm glad the new appliances are working well. All the best Rachel

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Nearest Train : penzance at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : long rock beach Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

A coastal path, popular with walkers is located to the rear of the property. Our guests have noted that we are a great location for exploring Cornwall's tourist attractions like, Penzance, St. Michael's Mount, Land's End, the filming locations of Poldark, Mousehole, Truro, Hayle, and many more.


Large, family-friendly beach is a sort walk along the road that the property lies on. Parking is available at the beach. The beach is in the beautiful Mounts Bay right next to Marazion and St Michael's Mount. From owner experience the harbour and Penzance promenade is a two-mile paddle in a kayak!


Newquay Airport 35 miles. Penzance Bus, Coach & Railway Station 1 mile. The flat is on the bus route from Penzance to St Ives and beyond and on a direct bus route from Penzance station.


Penzance 1 mile. Mousehole 5 miles. Paradise Park, Hayle 7 miles. St Ives 8 miles. Porthcurno beach and the Minack theatre 10 miles. Lands End 12 miles. The Eden Project 49 miles.

Further Details:

No better place to spend a winter break or a Christmas in a home away from home. Experence the Mousehole Harbour lights (for their 48th year!) 'Switch on' is the 17th December and there will be a Carolaire service from local choirs and the Pendeen Silver Band.

Two great pubs in the village - The Mexico Inn and Mounts View Hotel.

The village store is directly beneath you, there is also a Post office just over the road and Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury are within two miles. The Station pub in Marazion is only 10 minutes walk up the beach path. Historic Penzance is a two mile stroll along the same path in the opposite direction.

From the Owner

We love it's close proximity to a beautiful and quiet beach and that it is so easy to travel to all of the other wondrous places Cornwall has to offer. Some personal favourites are Pothcurno beach and the Minack Theatre and Mousehole.
