About Susanna Hughes

I grew up in the village of Marazion, went to school in Penzance, and have always loved West Penwith. My 2 children also love Marazion, as do their partners and now my grandchildren. We all visit regularly, separately or sometimes all together!

Susanna Hughes purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Susanna Hughes chose South West Cornwall

We chose Sarnia because it is adjacent to Tresco, which was the cottage I grew up in, now owned by my niece Jane (the two cottages can be rented together and would then accommodate 12).

What makes this cottage unique

Just 2 minutes from the beach

The beach is very safe for young children

The causeway to St.Michael's Mount is 2 mins away

Very close to all village shops and amenities

Excellent restaurants just 2 mins walk away

All mod cons as furnished for our own use.

Modern storage heaters and woodburning stove.

Back patio and balcony get afternoon and early evening sun. Ideal for BBQs.

Lovley end of terrace house

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Lovley quaint end of terrace house. A little chilly in places but the wood burner and St. Michael mount make that nothing. Owner very friendly and helpful and over a nice week away. Would strongly recommend to anyone and considering re visiting property again at some point in the future.

Perfect Getaway Cottage In Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We had a few days away in Cornwall last month and were delighted we came across Sarnia on the internet.

We chose Sarnia because we have visited Marazion on day trips before but have never stayed there.

We were not disappointed. The layout and style of the property were perfect as well as the location.

Only a minute from the beach the property offered everything you would want from a quaint period cottage.

The wood burner made it very difficult to leave house!

A Great Winter Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage just two minutes from the beach and the walk across to St Michael's Mount. Nice cosy lounge, super dining area and kitchen with everything one would need. All bedrooms a good size.

Thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend, plenty of great eateries very close, and just out of the town The Mexico Inn was excellent. The walk to Penzance is worth the effort too. This part of Cornwall has plenty to offer.

Sarnia in Marazion.

  • 5 of 5

Sarnia is the perfect place to stay with family and friends, providing comfortable and ample accommodation for at least 6 people, plus babies and toddlers. In the summer the cottage is light and airy, in the winter warm and cosy, so a great place to stay in all seasons. We love staying at Sarnia in the heat of the summer to enjoy sunny beach days but also in the winter, when we enjoy the waves and blustery weather! We love visiting in spring too, with fields of golden daffodils to lift the spirits!

The location of the cottage is a real bonus, just a two minute walk to the beach and the local shops and galleries of the village. The surrounding area is magical, with beautiful beaches like Porthcurno, interesting towns like St Ives and Penzance and cultural amenities like the Tate in St Ives and the Newlyn Art Gallery. Marazion itself boasts a Post Office, a bakery supplying delicious pasties and many pubs and restaurants. For the younger generation, there is a fantastic play park near the beach, where my family have all spent many happy hours!

The cottage itself is always clean, tidy and well maintained, with pamphlets and guides on all the services available. The manager is friendly, helpful and on-hand if any advice or information is needed.

We would highly recommend a stay at Sarnia, evidence of this is that our family has been returning there for nearly 26 years! We can't wait to stay again!

Sarnia Cottage is in the pretty village of Marazion about 2 miles from Penzance. The village has a general store and bakery along with a number of art galleries. The historic St. Michaels Mount can be reached at low tide by the causeway or a relaxing ferry ride at high tide. The Castle is a National Trust property.

Marazion is a wonderful place for children with a safe, sandy beach and a small river in which dinghies can be used. It also has a great adventure playground. Sarnia is just 2 minutes walk from the beach, sailing club and playground. Further along the beach are facilities for learning to windsurf and kite surf. There are surf schools at nearby Sennon.

Marazion is on the South West Coastal Path which has fantastic walks. Close by is the Lizard peninsula with its' dramatic coastline. Travelling west you can visit Chysauster, Minack Theatre, Lands End, Sennon and Mousehole. St. Ives is less than 10 miles away. Penzance also has a lot to offer with it

Other Activities: bird watching, kite flying
