A lovely picturesque place to visit. Having seen it from the shore many times before, it was nice to get up close and have a walk round round the ground. A special moment having a photo of my two nieces on the branch made of timber from the Warspite which was my granddads ship in WW2. It was tough on... More

A amazing place to visit , brave people will wait for the tide and walk through the path on the water . Pryor can cross busing little boat very cheap. Good experience to see the castle inside. Good for kids to explore and see historic monument and the queen has been thee too.

Did not expect to enjoy this day trip as much! From the boat trip to the Island to the short walk back through the low tide path, I enjoyed every moment. The island is very well maintained and the castle very interesting - even for the younger ones. I would advise any travellers to wear appropriate footwear. Apparently flip flops... More

We arrived by boat (£2 adult / £1 child) from Marazion and left by foot a few hours later over the dried causeway; both an experience with great views (keep your camera protected from spray,though). The castle - take the Explorer tour for kids with you! And in each room you will find short explanations written by the owner. Don't... More

What a lovely place to visit! Really beautiful and interesting. Fantastic part of our history and so well maintained. A credit to the British Isles! Really enjoyed the walk up-to the castle and church and the visit inside. It was extremely busy, but was very sunny day so everyone had had the same idea as us!!! Could do with a... More

We visited on a sunny but slightly wet October day. The property is in a really exciting location and we enjoyed walking across the causeway to the island. It is free to visit the island, shop, cafe and small harbour so worth a visit even if you don't want to go up to the house. The walk up to the... More

Didn't bother as dogs not welcome in the grounds of the house or gardens, they are allowed in the harbour area though! More and more people decide or have to, take pets with them on holiday & unfortunately it's not always possible to leave them in the car Or holiday accommodation. On returning home we have decided to cancel our... More

Just getting across to the island is magical in itself, whether you go by water arriving at the tiny sheltered harbour or walk the causeway. It's a place for selfies with the 'castle' providing the backdrop. It's unique. The climb is very steep as others have said and I did ask a member of staff if they have a private... More

We always promised ourselves to visit when next in deep Cornwall and enjoyed the experience. We were fortunate with tide times and walked across mid morning after walking from the only car park.The place and gardens was well run and in good condition.However the path up to the house was steep and uneven in places and tricky if disabled or...
