St Michael's Mount

Get set for an island adventure! St Michael's Mount is a historic castle, garden and island community found off the coast of Marazion in Cornwall. While you’re staying with us, plan a visit to this remarkable location for a historic and beautiful day out.

At St. Michael’s Mount you’ll find an ancient castle fortress, sloping subtropical gardens, sweeping lawns, and a harbour village. All you have to choose is what you’ll head to first after crossing the ancient cobbled causeway. At high tide, the sea covers the causeway and cuts the island off from the mainland. 

Their gardens, castle, lawns and village all provide perfect scope for the imagination – shaped and weathered over centuries, this extraordinary place is waiting to be explored and adored by the whole family.
