If you are looking for a romantic retreat in a beautiful location, The Paintbox in Marazion is the perfect place for you.
Sleeping two in delightful accommodation that combines charm with contemporary comfort, the aptly-named Paintbox is the picturesque annexe to The Summerhouse Gallery.
The accommodation is reverse-level, to take advantage of the rooftop views through the Velux windows towards St Michael’s Mount. Upstairs, there is a spacious and comfortable sitting room. Out of season, there is nothing quite like a windblown walk across the beach – but for when you want to come back indoors and get cosy, there is a television, DVD player and stereo.
On the ground floor, the front door leads into the attractive dining hall, which has open-plan access into the well-equipped contemporary kitchen. There is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. And of course, as befits a gallery annexe, the decor is tasteful and the pictures stunning.
Marazion itself is an ideal base from which to explore West Cornwall. Home of St Michael’s Mount and a superb sandy beach, bustling Marazion has a good variety of places to eat and shop. Penzance and St Ives are both nearby, offering everything from museums to supermarkets. The A30 is a few minutes’ drive away from Marazion, with excellent links to the rest of this beautiful county.

Marazion is the oldest chartered town in Britain having been granted this status by King Henry III in 1257. Today, it is a small, peaceful town facing onto one of the most beautiful wide stretches of safe sandy beach in all of West Cornwall. Mount's Bay has recently been elected to 'The Most Beautiful Bays in the World' club, the prestigious worldwide association which also includes Cape Cod and San Francisco Bay in the USA, Paria Bay, Venezuela and Santorini Bay in Greece.
It is praise that is richly deserved by this vast stretch of glittering water and its spectacular coastline that runs in a great arc from Land's End to Lizard Point. A bustling little resort, you will find quaint narrow streets and a variety of fascinating shops however the entire area is dominated by its dramatic neighbour, the island of St Michael's Mount. Located some three miles east of Penzance, the mount is one of the iconic treasures of Cornwall. Set on an island just off shore, this fairy tale castle is now owned by the National Trust and has for centuries been the home of the St Aubyn family. Originally, a Benedictine Priory, the island served as a major port in earlier times and is thought to be the island of "Ictis" which was the centre for the export of Cornish tin and copper to the Greeks and Romans in pre-historic times. Today, the Island and Castle are open to the public every weekday and most weekends during the summer and on a limited basis during the winter.
This mystical island has a church, a medieval castle, an exotic garden clinging to the steep flanks, and an ancient harbour where you will find a myriad of shops and restaurants. Visitors can access the Mount either by an ancient causeway at low tide or by passenger ferry at high tide. Between Penzance and Marazion lies the Marazion Marshes, an area of water and reed-beds which is a magnet for wild birds, particularly during the autumn migratory period and a very popular destination for birdwatchers. Marazion retains its strong traditions as an ancient market town and its fascinating past is brought to life at a local museum situated at the Town Hall. Marazion is noted for its antique shops, art and craft galleries and for its traditional pubs and restaurants

Wow! we've had an amazing Easter staying at The Paintbox! It far exceeded our expectations and was the perfect base for exploring Cornwall. Thank you for the wine and Easter egg and for all of the thoughtful extra entertainment for Sacha. She loved being so close to St Michael's Mount and agreed that it would be brilliant to return to stay here again some time in the future - thanks again Sophie Tom and Sacha
