Marazion, Cornwall, England
BREATHTAKING, panoramic, uninterrupted SEA VIEWS.
The artist, FRED YATES, former studio.
The rooms are awash with a spectrum of pastel colour reflected from the sea.
Windows capture ever changing seascapes , framing scenes of small boats drifting on water as smooth as glass, fishermen busily emptying lobster pots, surface ripples morphing into dazzling brilliance in the sunlight or winter's wild crashing Atlantic waves. Impassioned by its loveliness, artists painted here.
From the pretty garden you feel you could almost reach over and touch St. Michael’s Mount and paddle your feet in the bay. Nearby the coastal path takes you to deserted sandy coves fringed with wild flowers, where seals loiter in the surf. The ancient town boasts a small harbour where the ferry to St. Michael’s Mount collects its passengers when the causeway...

About the neighbourhood
Marazion is a popular destination for beach holidays & water sports, including windsurfing, kite-surfing & sailing. The attractive old town claims to be one of the oldest in Britain - known as Ictis by the Romans. Mounts Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in the world. The clean, sandy beaches offer safe bathing.

There are wonderful views towards the Lizard Peninsular in one direction & Land End in the other. It is famous because of St Michael's Mount- a causeway, once walked by pilgrims, leads to the island at low tide. A short distance along the coast is the pretty village of Perranuthnoe, which boasts the oldest inn in Cornwall - a good spot for surfing! Next along the coast is Prussia Cove, the lair of the notorious wreckers & pirates, the Carter brothers.
