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 – for pub grub try The Fire Engine or The Godolphin – both 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.

We had a fantastic stay at Bosworgy Bay. The space is absolutely gorgeous, and the owners have thought of everything needed to make it extremely comfortable and relaxing. The views are unbelievable too! Highly recommend a holiday there!

Janine, London

Beautiful accommodation with absolutely stunning views. Everything in the house you could wish for. We would highly recommend staying here. We would love to go back sometime.


My wife and I booked Bosworgy Bay for a week to coincide with my 67th Birthday. Alessandra provided lots of useful information prior to our arrival and the place looked perfect for us from the website description and images and when we arrived our expectations were very much exceeded. The house was just perfect, the view spectacular and the house is well equipped and very comfortable......We would happily recommend this property to anyone wishing to visit west Cornwall.


Beautiful view and comfortable place to stay. We really enjoyed our week. Great location to walk into Marazion and across to St Michael's Mount at low tide. We enjoyed costal walks and great location close to Penzance and Lizard too. It's a lovely place to stay which gets the afternoon sun, very cosy even when the weather was less good! Beautifully equipped for cooking and all the comforts with underfloor heating


Bosworgy Bay is absolutely wonderful - even though the photos make it look amazing, walking in you will be bowled over by the place! The view is stunning, you can sit for hours and just stare at it. But the house itself is picture perfect too - they have thought of everything to make it a relaxing, peaceful, soul restoring holiday. The decor is lovely - neutral, calm, exceptionally clean. It is well equipped, the bed is very comfortable and the whole house is incredibly quiet - we had the window open at night and fell asleep to the sound of waves crashing, absolutely marvellous.

Harriet, Abingdon

What a delightful venue facing St Micheals Mount, truly the best we have ever stayed in. Truly a home from home, comfortable furniture, spotless well maintained property. Our bedroom had an excellent bed with good quality bedding, plenty of storage, nothing was damaged, warm and inviting. We had some cold wet days but the underfloor heating suited us well.... We would recommend this wonderful home from home to anyone wishing to have a comfortable accommodation in a quiet area with the large decking with chairs to view the area and sip a g&t in the sunset.


Excellent. Lovely location you can walk to pubs restaurants and shops, fantastic view, help on hand by host if you need it, perfect in every way.


This was the perfect base from which to explore all the best places in beautiful West Cornwall - we walked for miles, visited hidden beaches, tiny villages, ancient village sites, National Trust properties and gardens and places with views. And every day we returned to sit on the balcony with the amazing view of the bay and St Michael's Mount, which we finally visited. Every was provided, even things we didn't realise that we needed. A perfect week.


What can you say about somewhere that has the best widescreen television in the world? The ever changing views of St Michael's Mount are absorbing and awesome and they are right on your windowsill - or balcony! Combined with the fact this is a beautifully presented one bedroom home from home - you really couldn't ask for more. While I am of the view that there are so many places in the world to visit - returning to one might not always be the best idea - this is one place I could happily return to every year.


We stayed here for a birthday treat and could not have been more pleased with Bosworgy Bay. The location is spectacular with uninterrupted views to St Michael's Mount. The property is uncluttered but has all the creature comforts you could need for a short break. We are planning our next visit.


We were blown away by the view which was amazing. The property has everything you need and the bottle of fizz was a welcome arrival gift. The bed was very comfy and the underfloor heating made the property warm and cosy. The propety was very clean. We would love to return as we don’t think we could tire of the view and we didn’t get the time to enjoy the local eateries which are within easy walking distance thanks to the great location.


This is stylish, well designed and beautiful made accommodation. The bed is comfortable, the sofa is squashy, the kitchen is well equipped and the shower room a pleasure, but the star of the show is the view! It is an exceptional place and I’m recommending it to all my friends.

Jane, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

It did not take long to decide where we would stay for our week in Cornwall. Bosworgy Bay lived up to its billing. Everything was perfect. Wonderful views out to St. Michaels Mount. Good sized glass screened patio to sit or lie out to catch some rays. Or evening meal in the sun. And inside the 12ft bifold doors was a great open plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Comfy sofas and everything you need in a kitchen, even a large wall mirror that you can look at the sea while prepping a meal up. Top quality bed linen and cosy bed. Large bathroom with nice shelving and great shower. What a place. T&S

Anthony, Newtown

We spent five nights at Bosworgy over Christmas and, despite the inclement weather, had a wonderful time. Beautiful location, lovely house, and Alessandra was a welcoming and friendly host. Definitely worth a second visit. And the Godolphin Arms, in nearby Marazion, served up an excellent evening meal.

Chris and Ann, Godalming

I arrived for a solo break, driving rain and wind obstructing the view, but a warm and cosy welcome! The next morning...the wonderful view, almost enticing one to just remain indoors. Very comfortable place, equipped with all one would need and a terrific location, almost on the coast path, 5 mins to the centre of Marazion. Perfect to be creative, re charge the batteries and leave refreshed. Thank you!

Anne, Bath

This was our second holiday at Bosworgy Bay and we doubled our length of stay. Hopefully that says it all. Fabulous in all weathers with an ever changing panoramic view. Very high standard of accommodation and warm, welcoming hosts. Plenty to do in West Cornwall, coastal path a short walk away...if you can pull yourself away from the wonderful view that is.

Jill, Poole

We had an amazing stay here, the location was just fabulous. We had intended to eat out some evenings but, with the thoughtful design of the house giving such wonderful views, after spending our days walking the Cornish coastlines, we didn’t want to spend our evenings anywhere else! Thought had also gone into ensuring plentiful supplies of cleaning and hot drink provisions and with the lovely touch of fresh flowers and a nice cold bottle in the fridge everything was just perfect! We would recommend a stay here without hesitation!

Nick, Hampshire

Delightful stay in beautiful Quiet location 1.5 miles from idyllic Prussia Cove...... overlooking St Micheal’s Mount, Penzance and Newlyn through a vast sliding window onto sun trap patio, .. it has the best views in Cornwall .... and 5 star comfort.

Will, Bath

An extremely comfortable property with the most amazing view. We had a much needed restful, relaxing week Thank you

Nicky, Hereford

We really enjoyed our stay in this stylish, quality apartment in January. The stunning view from the living room (with huge floor to ceiling glass doors making the most of the panoramic view) was magnificent. We sat on the sofa, coffee in hand, watching the sun slowly rise (not early either - a benefit of a winter break) - what a beautiful experience. The whole place is modern, very clean, spacious and well equipped with underfloor heating throughout. The enormous bed was soooo comfortable and luxurious. The bathroom is a good size with a fabulous modern large shower. We will be back!

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.

Local points of interest from Alessandra Ausenda

  • Follow the seafront and take a peek or a dip in Jubilee Pool with its geothermal pool in Penzance. Check out Newlyn’s fish market or see what’s showing at the Film House then head to Mousehole and walk along the picturesque coast path to Lamorna
  • Stroll down to Marazion and visit the numerous galleries, pubs, cafes and shops. Reach St Michael's Mount on foot along the causeway or by ferry. Walk to the marshes and hike 12.5 miles across the Penwith peninsula along stunning St Michael's Way.
  • Admire Mounts Bay from a different angle, get inspired and savour delicious homemade food served at Tremenheere Kitchen and visit the gallery, don’t forget to check for any interesting events and art installations at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens
  • For a mystic moment, tie a ribbon at Madron wishing well and head to see the ancient monument of Lanyon Quoit with Ding Dong mine on the moorland, walk to Men-an-Tol for a Bronze age experience and follow the road to meet Morvah along the heritage coast.
  • Discover the coast path from St Ives to Penzance. Enjoy the Cornish Mining heritage, visit St Just & Geevor tin mine in Pendeen with its fabulous museum in the most atmospheric rugged landscape. This is where our great-grandfather was managing director!
  • The golden sands of Gwithian beckon you towards Godrevey lighthouse. Walk along the wild cliffs and spy on the seals in their natural habitat. Miles of cliffs and stunning beaches, follow the Atlantic coastline and get a thrill looking down on Hell's Mouth

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.
