“Rooms with a View”
Reviewed 19 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Comfortable cottage, great views and well located to experience Marazion. Enjoyed sitting in the garden, but it could do with a little tlc as could the courtyard. Would be happy to return again. Thank you for the goodies on arrival too!

“Great little holiday cottage”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at The Silver House for 4 nights and were very happy with it. The location is great, and of course the view is amazing at any time of day. We visited St. Ives, Lands End and the Minack theatre which are all very close by and worth the trip. Marazion is a sleepy little village with very little in the way of shops, so if you are arriving late on a Sunday (like us) you might want to plan ahead as nowhere is open unless you travel down the road to Penzance.

The house is well equipped with nearly everything that you could need (except for an oven glove) and also has a cot and high chair for anyone with a young baby like we had. The owners and the cleaner are also very helpful and accommodating. Luckily for us we had amazing weather so were hardly at the house except on an evening, but if we were there are plenty of games, books, CDs and DVDs to keep you going which is a nice touch - also toys for the kids.

Overall, well recommended.

“Brilliant find!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Perfect holiday home for our break in Marazion, we went for a short break in The Silver House which met all of our needs. The house itself had everything even down to the egg timer! The rooms are spacious and there is outside space and parking. Even though we found the house so comfortable the best thing about it was the location, it is a short walk from Marazion town centre and beach and also a short drive to lots of attractions in Cornwall such as the Minack Theatre, Sennen cove and St Ives just to name a few. I was also delighted to find out that there is a swimming pool nearby too. As if this wasn't enough the views from upstairs and downstairs are to die for, my partner and found ourselves distracted from the tv and would just gaze out of the window whist we were at the house. From the bay windows you have views across to St Michaels Mount and along the bay! Would recommend to anyone and will be returning as soon as work commitments allow!

“A real gem!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We really feel that we don't want to let everyone know about the Silver House! It is such a gem of a holiday home.
The view from the front windows is mesmerising no matter what the weather. The house is warm and the beds comfortable. The bottle of wine, fresh milk and flowers were very welcome after a long journey. The kitchen, although small, has everything you need to prepare an evening meal (if you wish too) There is even has a dishwasher (detergent supplied) and washing machine.
The house is a short walk from the centre of Marazion so its quiet. It has no parking directly outside, but has parking space in a nearby hotel. You can park for short time to load/unload the car outside without too much difficulty.
We ate at The Godolphin Arms which has a wonderful view over the Mount and causeway at sunset. We bought pasties from Philps and fish and chips from KC's (a short drive away in Rosudgeon)
This was our second stay and we loved it as much as the first time!

We cannot fault the property itself (it is in need of some attention) or its location - it is a fantastic location, but..... We were so disappointed to arrive after 5 hours travelling to find we had to clean!! We were not greeted by wine, flowers, tea bags etc as other guests had reported, we were greeted with dead flies and spiders on the carpets and rugs (which our son thought were raisens!)and cobwebs, dust and a bag of rubbish in the lean too. Whilst we have no objection of tidying up our mess when on holiday we don't really want to clear up after others.
The property is reasonably equipped but could benefit from a stair gate,as cot and high chair are available.
Marazion is just wonderful, in every way.
The house offers the most perfect view, which made up for our initial disappointment and overall we enjoyed our stay. We would recommend to others but we would warn them they may need to get the Hoover out!! Which you don't expect to have to do for £800 pw!!!

Management Response

We are so sorry to hear that the house was not spotless when you arrived. Our housekeepers pride themselves on taking great care – indeed our guests go out of their way to tell us how immaculate the house is (as the Visitor's Book will testify). In all the time we have offered The Silver House for rent, we have had only compliments on that score. So please accept our apologies and we hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay.
