Perfect for a small family. We loved it.

Mrs Ruth J,

We had a great week at the Old Dairy despite a mixed weather week. Family of 4 with 2 kids (9 & 7). They loved the open space of the surrounding gardens, the swings and feeding the chickens and Truffles the pig. The Old Dairy was great - has everything you need and like us a great washer/dryer if the weather does turn against you. The location is a peaceful little spot and good location for touring Cornwall. We loved the local harbour Porthleven, which had a great range of restaurants. Kate and Kevin were lovely and passed on lots of tips for places to go the rest of the week. Lovely thought to have cream tea waiting and lollies for the kids too. We would thoroughly recommend staying and wish Kate & Kevin well.

The Newell Family,

We had a fantastic week at the Old Dairy and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was lovely with all the amenities needed to make our stay hassle free and very comfortable. The children really enjoyed the large field and play areas, plus visiting the chickens, ducks and pig. We also saw Pheasants and Rabbits on most days. We were situated within 20 minutes reach of many of attractive spots to visit such as, Porthleven, St Ives – take the coastal train from Lelant to see the views and visit the beach or Tate gallery, the jubilee pool at Penzance plus further afield to The Eden project. Kevin and Kate were very friendly and gave good advice if we had any questions. Thank you very much.

Past Customer,


Marazion is home to the iconic castle of St Michael's Mount and, offering stunning views towards the Lizard Peninsula and Land's End, it's understandably a popular destination. The ancient market town has a fascinating history and claims to be the oldest town in Britain.  It's a great place to visit any time of the year with an abundance of restaurants, traditional pubs, craft shops, art galleries and so much more!  There's an excellent sandy beach, guarded by St Michael's Mount, that's ideal for swimming, sailing, kite surfing and all kinds of watersports.  The surrounding countryside is dotted with little hamlets and quaint villages with the whole area designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) - a great location for bird watching and dolphin spotting.

Godolphin Cross, a little hamlet only 6 miles from Marazion, lies nestled at the base of Godolphin Hill within the Cornish Mining World Heritage site. From the summit of Godolphin Hill there are spectacular panoramic views over West Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.  The nearby fishing village of Porthleven and the town of Helston are a short drive away as well as the well-known attractions of Flambards, Paradise Park and Gweek Seal Sanctuary which make excellent days out for all age groups.  The Lizard Peninsula encompasses numerous picturesque coves and sandy beaches for you to enjoy including Praa Sands, Mullion and Coverack.  It's an area which remains unspoilt and is definitely a real Cornish gem!
