The Godolphin

Last updated: 19 June, 2023

If you’re wanting to stay on the southern end of Cornwall, this 17th-century coaching inn, with spectacular views across to St Michael’s Mount, is a good choice. It sits right above Marazion’s beach, and at low tide, you can walk across the famous cobbled causeway to the Mount.

With just 10 rooms – 6 with sea views – it’s intimate and personal, with friendly staff who welcome you by name. The restaurant serves an all-day menu inspired by locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, notably delicious fresh seafood. In good weather, means are served on the al fresco terrace, overlooking the beach and sea.

Given its location, it’s exceptionally good value, and good for all comers. It’s welcoming of families with children; there are two family suites, one with bunk beds. There’s also an adapted suite for disabled guests.

Surrounding area

The area surrounding the inn is known for its stunning natural beauty – a landscape of rolling hills and picturesque villages. Marazion itself is a charming coastal town with a long history as a fishing village. The South West Coast Path runs through it, offering scenic walks along the coastline, with breathtaking views of the sea and the surrounding countryside.

The Inn is close to Penzance (and its mainline station for access), and St Ives is within a 30-minute drive.
