About Trevarthian House: Trevarthian House is a large detached grade 2 listed building of architectural and historic interest. Situated in its own grounds, with beautiful views of St. Michael’s Mount and Mount’s Bay, the house lies within fifty yards of the sandy beach. Built by a Tin Smelter and Merchant by the name of Gilbert Pearce in the Victorian era, Trevarthian House was one of the largest residences in Marazion’s history. Its architectural style, palm trees, gardens and beach side location offer a colonial feel and the stained glass window and mosaic floor of the entrance hall hint at grandeurs of the past.

The grounds of Trevarthian House offer a tranquil holiday setting in which to relax. The location allows guests to be opposite the beach and St. Michael’s Mount while within four hundred yards of the centre of Marazion. The private driveway joins the main road through Marazion making Trevarthian Holiday Homes easy to find and a convenient starting point for visiting the surrounding area. Penzance, St Ives and Land End are a short car or bus journey away. The apartments are all self-contained and refurbished to a very high standard. There is an office, free laundry and large private car park on site. There is also a bus stop 50 yards away.

About Sean Cattran

Trevarthian Holiday Homes is a family business focusing on quality self-catering accommodation in Marazion, Cornwall. All our properties are located opposite Marazion Beach and St Michael’s Mount.

The properties are managed by brothers Sean and Paul Cattran and have been part of the Cattran family business for three generations. This means we know our properties very well and care for them as we would our own homes. We are not an agency and do not look after any properties that are not owned by us.

Most of our properties are amongst the oldest in the town. All are situated in the prime location along the front of Marazion. 50 yards from beach. Many have superb panoramic bay views of St Michael’s Mount, Mousehole, Newlyn and Penzance. All are refurbished to a high standard and we regularly make improvements and alterations over the winter months.

The majority of our holiday homes are located at Trevarthian House and The Gew. These are two large Victorian buildings divided into spacious apartments that can sleep between two and six people. They have a large private car park and gardens. We also have Flat 2, Malvern House, a maisonette overlooking the beach with amazing views of St Michael’s Mount, and The Coastguard Cottages, two lovely cottages, No.2 sleeps four and No.3 sleeps five. Both have a private garden, views of the Mount and private parking.

From any of these properties it is just a two-five minute walk to the safe sandy beach, children’s playground, village pubs, restaurants, galleries, shops, bus-routes for Lands End, St Ives, Penzance.

Sean Cattran purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Sean Cattran chose South West Cornwall

Trevarthian House has been in our family for generations and we are proud to have so many repeat visitors to this unique Victorian building. All our places are located opposite Marazion Beach and St Michael's Mount. Marazion is an ideal location for a family holiday and is also a great central location for exploring West Cornwall.

What makes this apartment unique

Marazion lies in the sheltered curve of Mounts Bay, which is recognised as one of the top ten most beautiful bays in the world. The clean sandy beaches offer safe bathing and spectacular views while the climate is the most temperate in the British Isles. The picturesque scenery of the island castle of St Michael’s Mount and the stunning views across the bay to Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole earn this beach its famous reputation. It has also grown in stature as a venue for both national and international sailing and windsurfing championships.

My family & I stayed here for a week over Easter. I'd looked at many rentals in Cornwall but prices were very steep. Then I came across this reasonable priced accommodation and after contacting Sean our mind was made up and were we pleased on arrival. Their are 12 lets on the property all overlooking the sea and some St Michaels mount. The property was spotless and immaculately clean throughout. All utensils and anything you need is accommodated for . You are literally 2 mins from the beach and Penzance is within walking distance along the beach front. Marathon village is located 2 mins away with restaurants and local amenities close by. I recommend Bens Kitchen and the Godolphin Arms for excellent food and views over looking the sea. Superb value for money are the apartments and we will certainly be going back in the future. If your looking for a relaxing break that doesn't break the bank then I recommend here for sure.

Mounts Bay:

Marazion lies in the sheltered curve of Mounts Bay, which is recognised as one of the top ten most beautiful bays in the world. The clean sandy beaches offer safe bathing and spectacular views while the climate is the most temperate in the British Isles. The picturesque scenery of the island castle of St Michael’s Mount and the stunning views across the bay to Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole earn this beach its famous reputation. It has also grown in stature as a venue for both national and international sailing and windsurfing championships.

Getting About:

There is plenty to explore to by foot from Marazion and this location is ideal for holidays that do not depend on a car, as it is served by a first class bus service and is within easy reach of many local areas of interest.

Distances from Marazion:

Penzance – 3 miles

St Ives – 6 miles

Truro - 23 miles

Falmouth – 30 miles

Lands End – 13 miles

Isles of Scilly – 20 mins by Skybus, Lands End


The ancient market town of Marazion can even claim to be the oldest town in Great Britain, known as Ictis by the Romans. The name ‘Marazion’ has evolved from “Marghas Byghan” – ‘little market’ and “Marghas Yow” – ‘Thursday Market’. Marazion was the major town in West Cornwall until the late medieval period when Penzance then began to outgrow it.

As tin mining and Cornwall go hand-in–hand, Marazion is also surrounded by many mines such as Wheal Prosper, Wheal Crab, Wheal Rodney, Tolvadden and South Neptune. Some of these mines are still preserved today. But as the industries of fishing and mining have declined, is the natural beauty of the scenery and landscape, combined with the Mount that has ensured that for centuries visitors have returned to the town.

Although Marazion is quiet and restful, there are plenty of activities such as sailing, windsurfing, horse riding and beautiful coastal and inland walks. For even more adrenaline there are kite surfing lessons available from X-Treem Air and there are plenty of surfing schools dotted around the surrounding coastline.

Penzance is Cornwall’s largest and most westerly borough. Only 10 miles from Land’s End, the town is surrounded by an area of Celtic culture and outstanding natural beauty. Majestic cliffs, rocky coves, pristine sandy beaches and crystal clear seas vie with the heather and gorse of the moors and early Christian and Bronze Age sites to form a landscape that is the heritage of a proud culture, and a source of inspiration for artists, writers and poets.

Ancient fishing villages, cliff-top walks, sub-tropical vegetation and a wealth of industrial and maritime heritage combine with early Christian history and Celtic legend to make the district surrounding Penzance a fascinating area. The coastline of coves and caves, the area’s history of smugglers and wreckers and its long tradition of music and song, inspired Gilbert and Sullivan to name one of the most famous of their productions “The Pirates of Penzance”.

Combining coastline and countryside, West Cornwall features an incomparable variety of wide sandy beaches, steep rocky cliffs and hidden little coves together with remote moors on granite headlands along with numerous small villages and towns, each with its own individual character. The Lands End Peninsula is justly famous for the welcome given to visitors both by its people and its environment. All around the West Cornwall coastline, the sea is clean and clear and its beaches regularly receive awards for both their facilities and their cleanliness. Many of the beaches are ideal for families and children, with wide-open sand gently shelving into inviting water, and lifeguards patrol most of these popular venues during the summer. For water sports enthusiasts, there are excellent opportunities for surfing and wind-surfing, while sailing is popular in Mounts Bay with regular Championships being held for a wide variety of classes of boats.

Both the cliffs and the moorland provide plenty of opportunity to “escape the crowds” with well marked footpaths all along the cliff-tops while the inland area is criss-crossed with footpaths and bridle-ways. Scattered over the Peninsula are many pre-historic sites where stone circles, standing stones and settlement sites can be found. As symbols of the heritage of the people of West Cornwall, there are numerous stark granite-built towers rising above the remote moorland and cliff-tops to be seen. These were the engine houses of the tin mines which once formed the life-blood of the Cornish economy.

The “jewel in the crown” of Mounts Bay is the island castle of St Michael’s Mount while, further around the coast, lies the Minack Theatre set dramatically in the cliffs above the sea. In addition to these “must see” sites, there is a great variety of attractions open to the visitor including the Lands End Experience as well as the Tate Gallery in St Ives, Paradise Park bird sanctuary in Hayle and others just a little further afield such as Flambards.
