We walked across the causeway which is interesting all on its own. Lovely quarried red granite forming a road on the bottom of the ocean is quite the concept. We then walked up to the castle and toured through the castle. It was very well done and well preserved. I thought the dried flowers on all of the chairs that... More

Well worth the climb up the cobbled path. This is a fabulous example of our great heritage beautifully preserved and maintained. The views over Mounts Bay are truly spectacular. The staff around the castle are very knowledgable and helpful with any questions, and the grandchildren loved the quiz they were given to do on the way round.

One of our most memorable places to have gone was Mount St Michele in France so we had to visit this gem as well. Sister version! You have to check when the tide is in or out which will determine how you travel there. We had to catch a little boat that runs regularly from Marizon. Sea was a little... More

It's exciting just getting to the island, by boat. Everything is very well organised and the boats ferry folk back and forth all day long. We took an informative talk with one of the 24 residents of the Mount and learnt a lot of interesting facts. The climb up to the castle ( well, it might technically be a walk... More

Very interesting visit. The gardens are absolutely beautiful. A micro climate of their own, everything is about 6 weeks further ahead with blooms. Worth a visit just for the gardens. The castle is also very interesting and well maintained. Make time to visit the cafe/restaurant. We can recommend the crab sandwich with a bottle Cornish lager. Pleasant boat trip to... More

I could blather on about the impressive castle and the grounds on the Mount. I could say be warned, it's quite a steep, short trog up to the castle. And I could rabbit on about the fantastic views. But I won't. Because the great thing about SMM is the fact that you can get a boat there and walk back.... More

A very nice ole Castle and village- looking as a scene from Harry Potter. It was nice to go to the Island by foot and go back with very small boats.

The mount itself is amazing to look at. Throw in a bit of sunshine and its stunning. Rain or shine it is definitely worth making the trek across the stone walkway that just seems to rise from the deep when the tide rolls out. As you climb the path to the castle the views of the surrounding coast are amazing!... More

Been to this National Trust site many times and it never fails to give us pleasure. The sea was out so we needed the boats each way. The house has undergone 5 years of restoration which has just been finished and it is now looking at its best. Climb is probably too steep for the elderly or some disable which... More
