By the time we have reached Tregony we have covered 24kms and scaled a final steep hill up to the bus stop, once again in good time to catch the bus to Truro. We take some time here telling stories of the day we’ve just consumed and again I am impressed by Ed who has crunched out these kilometres despite blisters, and much perspiration; it’s wonderful to see how strong he is and how well he’s coping.
... by humans across the ages, with great natural beauty and flowing water. We saw once again how nature gradually overcomes any efforts by our species to tame and conquer her. Here was a place to calm the mind and bring the senses alive and as we traversed the rises and falls in this magical landscape I began to understand some of the deeper wisdom described so beautifully in the Sun and the Serpent:

... By the end of a quite hot sunny day our 24kms had seen Debby and Ed quite done in. They were ready to stop and I knew we were going to struggle to make a family social engagement at 6 pm back in Penzance with Craig, Cameron and Hayden. We appeared stranded in the middle of nowhere, but somehow managed to get a taxi back from a seemingly meaningless mark on the map called Black Rock, just short of ...
... It is an inspiration to me, and so unexpected, that my dear son Ed is proving an inspiration with his positive attitude throughout his walking tiredness. And I love the way he is enjoying all the stories that we so love of people, history and mystical associations that we are walking our way through.
My headache is not helped by the fact we are in the peak tourist summer season and we have no accommodation booked after tomorrow. I must get focussed on ...

After time spent exploring, the tide had come in and we had to catch the little boat back to the mainland .. and a yummy afternoon tea of crab sandwiches!!

Historical Traveler Reviews Mount Haven Hotel & Restaurant Marazion
This is a wonderful hotel, in a superb location, in beautiful Cornwall.
I had seen the hotel on a tv program which followed the owners as they developed the hotel. This raised my interest in the hotel, although it didn't sell i too well. How poor the tv program was on advertising this get away haven, with the most fantastic of views. The Mount Haven outshone all the reviews, as did the views from our balcony....possibly one of the best views I have ever had from a bedroom window, that of St Michaels Mount.
The welcome was brilliant. Free refreshments on arrival was a great introduction, and these were taken on the balcony, just off the relaxation/bar area, and our opportunity to see the views from the hotel. The staff were all warm and welcoming. Our room was wonderful. Both modern and relaxing and with that amazing balcony view of the Mount. Whether you sit on the balcony or lay in bed, you cannot help but be mesmerised.
The hotel was clean and inviting, with a modern bathroom and a comfy large bed.
Afternnon tea was delightful, the home cooked biscuits and scones superb.
Breakfast was one of the best that we have had in a hotel. The only disappointment was that we hadn't eaten the night before, as the menu was mouth watering.
We look forward to our next visit and hope to relax at this idyllic hotel again. Heaven is truly a night at Mount Haven!
My partner and I stayed for a week for our honeymoon, and we could not of made a better choice.
After planning the wedding and then the big day we were both mentally and physically fatigued. From the moment we arrived we could feel ourselves begin to relax and unwind.
No one could ask for more from a Honeymoon destination. The room we stayed in had the most fantastic view of St Michaels mount from our own private balcony.
Each night we were treated to some of the most exquisite food either of us had in a long time.
The staff are exceptional, being attentive but not smothering, they really made dinning a pleasure.
My wife and I would not hesitate to recommend a stay if you need to get away from everything and relax.
The most perfect Honeymoon possible.
Although my initial reaction on seeing the outside was "oh no, what have I done??" it turned out to be very nice inside. It's modern, but comfortable and cosy with it, with a gorgeous garden. The large sitting area has a huge glass window with fantastic views. A lot of thought and effort has gone into decorating the hotel, including vases, cutlery, etc. Our room was nice, with a brand new bathroom, and a huge shower, but watch out for the beds. If you like very soft beds, fine, otherwise you might have a problem. I couldn't sleep on it. As my boyfriend said, it was like sleeping on a marshmallow. I don't think that all the mattresses are the same, so perhaps you just need to ask for a room with a normal mattress. The breakfast was great, and was served very quickly. The dinner was a disappointment, but it is possible that that was because it was an unusually quiet evening. The fish was good, but too salty, while the risotto was completely overcooked. The hotel was very good about changing things on the menu, and my boyfriend's steak was good. Still, the coffee was surprisingly good and the organic ice cream fabulous. The owners are very nice and made us feel very at home. I would definitely come back.
The Mounthaven Hotel is a special place.
I have had the pleasure of staying at the hotel on several occasions and would recommend to all.
The management and staff are welcoming, friendly and charming. Accomodation is nothing less than luxurious, fluffy pillows and a fat matress guarantee a good nights sleep. Waking in the morning with sea views and St Michaels Mount is a great way to start the day. The food is excellent and the puddings magnificent.
I look forward to returning soon and enjoying the experience again.
Can't wait t o go back
Fantastic ambience, great views and the managemnet are just superb.
Food was excellent and at a very resonable price for teh area.
I would recommend anybody to spend at least a couple of nights here if they can't get more time off worki.
Heaven at the Haven
My partner and I stayed at The Mount Haven last
August. It is without a doubt one of the most freindly, relaxing and comfortable hotels we have stayed in.
The food is excellent, the staff are so efficient and freindly and the owners Mike and Orange Trevillion
have a single purpose which is to make your stay
as perfect as possible.
We have booked 9 rooms in July to celebrate my 60th Birthday with close freinds. The choice I was given was Portugal or Cornwall.
Alittle piece of heaven on earth.
This place is beyond words. You have to EXPERIENCE it.
From the kind and helpful reception you get from the owners and staff, to the luxurious rooms with the most comfortable beds, to the deliciously fresh food, the stress busting 'treatments' and most stunning of all the magnificent views of St. Michaels mount, everyting about this hotel is wonderful and most pleasantly, reasonably priced.
We were made to feel so welcome that our original 'one night stopover' turned into a fabulous 3 night vacation.
'The perfect place to be' (as their brochure so aptly puts it) to escape, relax and rejuvinate.
I defy anyone who visits not to return. We have.
Wife's birthday made wonderful
To say we had a wonderful time would be the understatement of the decade. Both room and food were of the highest standard's. I would recomend this hotel & restaurant to anyone who prefer's the better thing's in life.
Stunning views, elegant accomodations, sophisticated dining
During our 10-day visit in the UK (May 2004), the highlight our trip was undoubtedly our stay at the Mount Haven Hotel. The beds are heaven -- the views are celestial. The staff is gracious and welcoming. We had our best meals at the hotel as well. It is a fine place as a base of exploration of southern Cornwall.
If you seek holistic treatments, they are available to you as well. The mystery of the Mount combined with the comfort and warmth of this charming facility equals 2 happy guests who will be returning.
A true gem of a place!
My partner and I planned a romantic get away for the May Bank holiday and chose the Mount Haven Hotel after finding it on the web.
First impressions when making our booking by phone were great - so friendly and genuinely interested in us as their guests!
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel entirely at home and totally relaxed. We had a beautiful 4 poster room overlooking St Michael's Mount with a chilled bottle of Champagne awaiting us.
Dinner in the hotel restaurant was top notch with excellent service and very resonably priced. My partner enjoyed a pampering massage in the hotel's zen like treatment room and still can't stop talking about it!
Overall the hotel owners have done a very rare thing and struck the exact balance between friendly and efficient service and a hotel that reflects their personalities without being ostentatious. - Top marks and all this from a fellow hotelier!
Thanks for a great stay, Lauren and Jason
