St Michael's Mount

We are so lucky to be within walking distance of St Michael’s Mount. From Foxglove Field, you can make your way down peaceful country lanes lined by hedgerows to the top of Marazion, where you’ll first spot the mount towering out of the water. At low tide, you can cross the causeway of granite setts, or you can catch the boat to this tidal island.

St Michael’s Mount’s history stretches back thousands of years, with evidence of the area being inhabited during the Neolithic period. Today it is joint managed by The National Trust and the St Aubyn family, who have lived at the castle since approximately 1650. To visit this unique site, please book your tickets in advance on their website here (note that National Trust members will also need to book a time slot, although it will be free of charge).

For a longer walk, you can join the South West Coast Path from Marazion and loop back to Foxglove Field via Perranuthnoe with it’s beautiful sandy beach, cafes and galleries. Or you could keep the walking to a minimum and come back the way you came with a stop at The Fire Engine Inn for some food and a pint.
