Our cottage is a cosy converted blacksmith's workshop in the ancient Cornish town of Marazion - home to St Michael's Mount & in Poldark country! One of the oldest properties in Marazion, the cottage is just off the main street and the SW coast path.

The space

The Old Forge is a cosy converted granite blacksmith's forge in the beautiful Cornish seaside town of Marazion, with exposed stone walls, real wood flooring and a cast iron log burner (perfect for snuggling up in front of!) as well as a range of beautiful original features including the old blacksmith's shop front, deep window seats in the thick granite walls and even a lintel made from a reclaimed ship! It has a new, fully equipped and beautiful country kitchen with wooden worktops, an electric range cooker, a dishwasher, a washer/dryer and Smeg fridge-freezer, and a bathroom with a cast iron roll top bath with electric shower over. There is a farmhouse dining table and 4 chairs in the living room. The property has two bedrooms - a double and twin. The double room features an old exposed chimney breast and velux windows - perfect for stargazing on a warm summer evening. The twin room has a beautiful exposed granite wall and original wooden beam. Marazion is on the South West coast path with beautiful beaches (including a dog-friendly year-round beach) great for walking and bathing, and famous for windsurfing and kitesurfing. A 5 minute walk through the old main street of Marazion, the town centre features several fantastic pubs and restaurants, including the exceptional Ben's Cornish Kitchen (winner of the Cornwall Life Food & Drink Award 2014), the Godolphin Arms and a number of cosy pubs including The King's Arms (highly recommended for a Sunday roast), The Cutty Sark and The Fire Engine Inn. We are very happy to welcome guests with a well-behaved dog (or two!) however please bear in mind that the property does not have a garden (although there are several patches of grass and a playing field within a 30 second walk of the front door). We can also recommend some fabulous walks - all tried and tested by our labrador, Moo. We run an eco-conscious cottage so, as far as possible, everything provided in the cottage (where applicable) will be local, organic, environmentally-friendly and/or Fair Trade. We really love sharing our little cottage with other people and are very grateful for having such lovely guests who take good care of it during their stay. If anything does get damaged or broken during your stay please do let us know ASAP - we really don't mind (these things happen!) however we often have guests checking in the same day you check out and knowing in advance means that we can make sure items are fixed or replaced before our next guests arrive. Please note: There is no allocated parking provided however you will be able to park very close to the house on one of the adjoining, unrestricted roads. We are very close to the sea here so in the spring and summer it's not uncommon for the seagulls to start their morning chorus quite early! We've tried asking them to wake up a bit later however this doesn't appear to have worked as yet . . .

Awesome, unique cottage with updated appliances - every appliance had its own instruction manual, but apart from that a comprehensive summary was available with quick start info. Really appreciated the prompt communication from Alex and Abbie before, during and after our five night stay. Loved everything about the cottage, it was exactly as described. We felt at home the minute we stepped inside. Enjoyed a stroll on the causeway to St Michael's Mount. It's a great area to explore other places around south west Cornwall, and we did! Port Isaac is a must! Could write lots more but it is something you really need to experience yourself. Thank you so much, Alex and Abbie - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your gorgeous cottage.

Fantastic. Very welcoming with pots of flowers throughout the Forge and Cream Tea in the fridge which we enjoyed after a long drive. Loads of travel information to browse through, easy walk to all amenities including the fabulous St Michaels Mount

Lovely genuine friendly, helpful hosts. Alex and Abbie gave us plenty of tips on sightseeing and where to eat. They have done a fantastic job on renovating the cosy old blacksmith forge.

Our family of four had a fantastic stay at this cute + cozy cottage. Alex and Abbie were wonderful hosts who were quick to answer questions and provide local recommendations prior to our visit. The tea, coffee, milk, scones, jam, and fresh flowers provided a lovely welcome upon arrival. The cottage has everyone one might need and is even more spacious than it looks in pictures. It's just a quick walk down to central Marazion and St Michael's Mount. The cottage was a great base for exploring SW Cornwall and all its beautiful beaches, cliff walks, pubs, etc. We highly recommend The Old Forge and hope to return one day!
