  • "Fantastic picture postcard views of the coastline from apartment."

    Spent some time each morning and evening watching dawn and sunset over St Michaels Mount, and we were blessed with fine weather. The shop and pubs were in the next village which would have been helpful to know in advance, in view of local information not allowed in property currently. We spent ages searching for them in Rosudgeon and they are in Goldsithney.

  • "The apartment was more spacious than we expected with beautiful views out to the sea - with a perfect window seat for reading and watching sunsets."

    The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms had lots of storage, and we were very comfortable there. Acton Castle is a great location for exploring Prussia cove, the coastal path and there are many wonderful beaches in the area. In the age of Covid, it was very easy to keep away from crowds - we often had an entire beach / cove to ourselves. We had a very happy week - it's a magical place and we will definitely be returning to Susanna's Apartment.

  • "This is the 4th time we have visited Acton Castle but the first time in 12 years."

    We have been taking holidays abroad and were forced to 'staycate' having been forced to cancel a holiday in Vienna. We love the Castle and the apartment but two things would have improved our holiday. Firstly, wi-fi in the bedrooms would have been very useful. Secondly, it was very difficult to park. On several occasions we were forced to park in the private car park under the arch. It seemed that some holiday makers had brought more than one car so maybe a limit would be a good idea.

  • "For years we visit Suzanna’s Appartment and we like it very much."

    The only thing is that we were not able to receive BBC1 and 2 probaby due to another provider or something ??. So we had to do with all the violence of the commercials, but we managed with Midsommer Murders and Poirot (haha). And maybe when there is a new budget to be spent one could think of beter (more stable matrasses. Thank you.

  • "There can be no doubt that Susanna's apartment is adorable with the most spectacular views over to St."

    Michael's Mount. However, it's starting to look a little tired and in need of some TLC in particular the Kitchen and Bathroom. The kitchen offered a mismatch of cutlery, crockery and glass wear, as if they had been supplied from what was left over at a car boot sale. There wasn't one sharp knife to be found. We actually bought one so we could slice fruit and vegetables! The bathroom is really in need of an up date, the shower head wasn't attached to the wall so we had to hold it while we showered, not ideal. The shower curtain was disgusting, matted together with lime scale and what looked like mould? The TV reception is very poor and try as we might, we couldn't get any BBC channels and the others kept breaking up, possibly they need to consider one of the satellite providers in such a poor reception area. All of that said, the lounge and bedrooms were comfortable and of course, the views are magnificent. But all things considered not worth almost £700 for a week's holiday.

  • "The website description is an accurate summary of the facilities."

    The accommodation is reached down a long narrow lane which might have been expected to present the occasional problem with passing other vehicles but in the two weeks of our stay we didn't have any problems at all. The location is lovely with interesting views across to St Micheal's Mount, Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole. There is a footpath from the bottom of the grounds leading onto the coastal path. There are other residents in the building but we hardly saw or heard them during our fortnight. The facilities in the accommodation are excellent and we wanted for nothing during our stay. A few minutes by car takes you to all the shopping facilities you are likely to need. There is no-where in the grounds or nearby for children to run around or kick a ball but miles of country walks in all directions. A lovely location and a lovely place to stay. I can fully recommend it.

    we would not have booked this if it had not said king. we feel we have been misled and missold.

  • "The apartment was superb, well equipped and in a wonderful location overlooking the sea."

    The beds and lounge chairs were very comfortable. Only having a hand shower was not too good, even though it was specified in the booking information so we were expecting it. However, we found that the dishwasher was poor quality since it did not wash items sufficiently well so many of them had to be redone by hand. In addition, the internet speed of 0.46Mbps was absolutely appalling such that it was sometimes impossible to display web pages (I was able to get 3 times the internet speed on my mobile broadband) and in the evenings the TV would regularly pixelate such that occasionally we could not watch or hear the current program, thus spoiling our viewing and enjoyment.

  • "We loved the apartment and the taste with which it had been fitted out."

    Naturally, the views are spectacular. Lovely and quiet, which suited us. Tiny negative; the beds were too soft for us. We did read the comments in the visitors' book and note that this has been discussed before, and that these beds were perfect for some folks. It wouldn't stop us coming again, which is highly likely!

The property

Susanna's Apartment, on the first floor (arrow 3), is named after the wife of Acton Castle's eccentric creator.

Stunning sea views along the coast to St Michael's Mount, slate-floors and a huge open plan living area with mullioned windows looking out to sea await.

Everything here has been well thought out, there is a well-equipped kitchen as well as two bedrooms – a king size double and a twin bedded room, these share a family bathroom.

Outside, you can wander the formal castle gardens and terraces.

The very pretty hamlet of Rosudgeon is ideally placed for exploring the area.

Nearby, you can spend the day exploring St Michael’s Mount or Penzance, both within a short drive, or for those seeking a day at the seaside the sandy beaches at Perran Sands, Marazion and Praa Sands are some of the best in the South West.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
