Cottage in St Hilary, Nr. Marazion, Cornwall, England - Central Location For Beaches And Touring The West Of Cornwall
About Sue Harvey
I've lived here since 1972 and my children went to the local playgroup and school. They spent many hours digging in the sand at Perranuthnoe and Marazion beach and making dens in the back fields and now my grandchildren do the same.
Why Sue Harvey chose Saint Hilary
The property was very run down but old and full of character with a pretty garden which was very overgrown. It used to have a pond and frogs still come back and visit us every year! It was in a very central position easy to get to Penzance and Helston and also had easy access to the A 30.
What makes this Cottage unique
The stunning views from the rear of the cottage and well stocked garden were a winner.

We had a lovely week in Cornwall during the October half term. The cottage was clean, warm and cozy. Sue greeted us on arrival - there was a cream tea waiting for us in the cottage. Absolutely delicious.
We were blessed with good weather so managed to do lots of walking in the nearby countryside and along the coast paths.
I would recommend the cottage to couples as well as families. It is near enough for local amenities but "off the beaten track" for peace and quiet.
Thank you Sue for the lovely welcome, we would definitely recommend the cottage to others.
Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to meet you all and that you were able to enjoy the coast paths and countryside.
Lovely cottage, great holiday
We had a really great stay in this property during May half term. The cottage is immaculately clean and well kept and the garden is a true gem and is a wonderful place to spend time in. The lovely cream tea and flowers made us feel very welcome.
Although linked with the owners property there is never an issue with privacy, both the property and garden are separate enough to give privacy to both owner and holiday maker. Although Sue and Frank were always at hand for us should she be needed at the knock of the door for any concerns or questions which may arise.
The facilities provided are excellent and everything you need is available for use. The BBQ is great, we certainly made very good use of it.
Every room is well planned and organised to make the most of your space, the storage facilities are fabulous and plentiful and the newly fitted bathroom is a pleasure to use.
The parking is private and off road which is fabulous when unloading the full car on arrival or at the end of a day out.
The rural location is very peaceful, apart from some road noise from passing traffic, which is unavoidable and did not cause us any issues. Travelling to all areas from the cottage was easy and the cottage is very near many tourist attractions and beautiful beaches.
The cottage is bright and airy and a complete pleasure to stay in, in fact so much so that we have already booked for next year. Thank you so much Sue and Frank xx
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you all next year.

Lovely, cosy place.
Very nicely done, cosy place which is in a lovely area. The owners were very friendly and considerate (including a cream tea welcome & an Easter egg for our daughter). The kitchen has everything you need. A good base to explore west Cornwall. The weather was not great while we were visiting but I am sure the garden would be a lovely addition if the sun allows you to enjoy it. We will be back!
Thank you for taking time to review the cottage. It's lovely to get feedback from visitors and see how we are doing! We look forward to seeing you in the future and hopefully you will be able to enjoy the garden as well.

Very pretty cottage and garden with dainty but well equipped kitchen. Owners were very helpful and friendly. We had a really relaxing week exploring the local area - particularly liked Marazion, St Michael's Mount, Lizard Point (and surrounding coves) and the Eden Project.
