The
Experience

This snug space perched above the sea overlooking St Michael’s Mount will delight you whatever the weather. Bag the sofa and watch the waves crash and the skies go dark in winter; eat breakfast or sip sundowners on the balcony in summer. Although the house is an extension to an adjoining property, it feels nicely private with its own access and long views out to sea.

The sociable kitchen is a joy to work in and you can pick up a haul of fresh fish from Quayside Fish in nearby Porthleven or Newlyn. There are plenty of places to eat out – Ben’s Cornish Kitchen is good or for pub grub try The Fire Engine or The Godolphin – all are within walking distance.

Blustery walks start on the coastal path to Perranuthnoe beach or Praa Sands. Mooch around the art galleries, boutique shops and cosy pubs in town. The Minack Theatre and St Ives are 30 minutes by car in opposite directions.

Reviews

It was just a delightful place to stay. I would give it 5 stars for its location overlooking St Michaels Mount, its complete facilities, and its sheer quality. Nothing was missing, everything worked perfectly. Great comfort. The owner was so friendly and helpful too. Marazion is a great place for shopping (3 supermarkets nearby, a fantastic seafood shop in the local shopping centre) and access to some of the most stunning countryside. 5 nights was just not enough to see everything we wanted to do, so we will be back.

John, Andover

Fantastic location, amazing view, bright, spaceous flat, beautifully decorated. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. So many beatiful places to explore nearby. We will most definately be back and would highly recommend it.

Bosworgy Bay was the perfect self-catering haven. The views were beautiful and the whole place has been custom designed to make enhance your experience. The location is very convenient, a ten minute walk into the centre of Marazion with it's lovely restaurants, cafés and shops and a short drive to St Erth train station where you can hop on a train to St Ives for the day. Alessandra was an amazing host and made sure we were comfortable throughout our stay. The only teeny, tiny issue was the hot water - not on demand which takes a bit of getting used to! We can't wait to return.

My wife and I stayed at Bosworgy Bay for 3 nights at the end of March 2019. We were down in Cornwall for a wedding. But the wedding turned out to be incidental to our stay!! We loved Bosworgy Bay so much we didn't really want to leave it! We were blessed with fine weather during our stay which made it particularly enjoyable. Looking out at St. Michael's Mount is every bit as magical as the pictures show, only more. It felt a bit like watching Ayers Rock, as it changes depending on the time of day as light fallson it from a different angle. Really, truly spectacular.

We came to Bosworgy Bay all of 2 miles from where we live in Penzance - and it's another world! A magnificent view of St Michael Mount and the ever-changing mood of sea and sky. We really enjoyed the apartment too - it's light, bright and peaceful, well laid out with a great sense of space. You can spend a couple of days here just relaxing and not need to drive anywhere… Booking was straightforward and communication with Alessandra was a pleasure. Thank you so much!

Hadrian, Penzance

Despite the wet and windy weather during our weekend stay this did not detract from the beautiful location and property. Alessandra was there to meet us on arrival and was very friendly, the cream tea was a lovely touch and Bosworgy was a great property. The house was super cosy and homey which is exactly what you want on a cold, wet day and i could never tire of the view of the mount. The location was excellent – a great hub to explore from

Lorraine, Bournemouth

Bosworgy is the perfect location to soak up the sights, scents & sounds of this beautiful part of Cornwall. Wake up to the stunning, ever-changing view of St Michael's Mt. 10min stroll into Marazion for gorgeous cafés/bars/restaurants, or to Perranuthnoe and the wonderful Peppercorn café. There are glorious walks along the Coastal Path to Porthleven from the doorstep. You are surrounded by amazing, abundant wildlife, Buzzards, kestrels, peregrines, sanderlings & turnstones, and a cove full of seals at Godrevy. The accommodation is beautiful, v comfortable and has all you need. We'll be back!

Tom, Newton abbot

As I walked in I was blown away by the light streaming in through the giant sliding doors, when the owner opened them to their full extent (they slide back into the wall) it felt like I was part of the incredible panorama in front of me. The building is handcrafted by the owners and the attention to detail and craftsmanship is evident everywhere. I could spend hours sitting on the sofa watching the scene in front of me whatever the weather, I almost think this space would be most impressive in a storm.

Location

The neighbourhood

Marazion throngs with tourists in the summer but it’s pretty magical year round. Its beach is safe and sandy, St Michaels Mount is worth a visit (you can walk over at low tide) and there are heaps of independent shops to browse. Marazion Marsh Nature Reserve on the outskirts of town is home to a variety of wetland birds – bitterns and warblers, among others, migrate here every year.

Introducing

Alessandra Ausenda

The owners live about a mile away, are there to meet you and will be on hand if you need anything. They are both artists and partner Sean did all the work from design and building to carpentry, electrics and plumbing. The clever design means the high ceilings and huge windows let in the light while the open-plan arrangement makes it feel spacious. Ask about guided art tours – they may offer them in the future.
