“What a fantastic little cottage! It is clean, has a fantastic view of the sea and St. Michael’s Mount and lies a couple of minutes walk from good restaurants and shops. Highly recommended!”
— Dawn Assaf - August 2019
Oh My!.... When I walked upstairs and saw that view I’m pretty sure my heart skipped a beat!...
The moment myself and my husband stepped through the door of Nutshell we were smitten. We felt at home and comfortable straight away. We love Marazion and are very lucky to have family nearby. We also love the service provided by St Michaels Coastal Cottages.
This visit we have tried out paddle boarding and can highly recommend Ocean High SUP - they were excellent. We had such a great time, paddled over to the Mount and back. It was brilliant. Nutshell has been an amazing base for our holiday and we will be back. Marazion has lovely places to eat and shops to shop in :-) We are thankful that Nutshell is dog friendly too. Thank you Marazion, Nutshell and St Michaels Coastal Cottages - We’ve had a blast.
