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 . . .

The old forge was delightful place to spend a lovely week in south Cornwall, the host were great, our kids are coeliac and there was gluten free food on arrival. Local knowledge is priceless and was greatly appreciated when offered by the hosts. Parking was accommodated with the football club 50 yards up the road, come and go as we pleased all day for a donation, thanks lads. We will be back to Cornwall and we will do AirBnB again, the house was great with the little kids. Thanks again Abbie n Alex we will be recommending you to our friends.

Lovely cottage that is the perfect retreat for a few days by the sea. The decor is very tasteful and the kitchen well equipped. The log burner heats the cottage up and makes for a cosy night in. Our dog had a great time walking on the local beaches and we ate well in the local pubs. All in all we would recommend Alex and Abbie’s place for a very nice break in Cornwall. They are very helpful as well. Thanks.

Gorgeous little holiday cottage situated just 10 steps from a local pub and a 10 minute walk into the centre of Marazion. The house is so cosy and Abbie and Alex are very happy to give you any advice on the local area/ activities. We found the house was in perfect location for visiting Lands end, and Minack theatre. I will definitely be recommending to a friend.

The Old Forge is a fabulous place to stay. We found it was in a great position for exploring some of the amazing food places now available in West Cornwall, along with having a good size kitchen that allows you to cook the great fresh produce also available in the area.

A gem of a cottage in a quaint Cornish village. Abbie and Alex were fantastic hosts and left a lovely hamper of treats to get us started.

Wow. A beautiful cottage in a beautiful location just moments from the coast and views of St Michael's Mount. Extra touches of flowers, cream tea and bucket and spade for our toddler were very much appreciated. Cosy fire was just perfect to warm the autumn evenings. Loved It - we will be back!

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.
