St Michaels' Mount
NATIONAL TRUST online: information and bookings

Home of The St. Aubyn Family and a Property of The National Trust.

This magical island is the “Jewel in Cornwall’s Crown”, a national treasure which is a must for every visitor to the far west. The great granite crag which rises from the waters of Mount’s Bay is surrounded by an embattled Castle, originally a Benedictine Priory built in the 12th century and daughter house of the famous Mont St. Michael in Normandy.

From 1660 until the present day it is the home of the St. Aubyn family.

In the various rooms of the Castle, there are paintings and portraits by artists such as Gainsborough, Kneller, Hudson and the Cornish artist John Opie. The Chevy Chase Room, formerly the monks refectory is decorated with a 17th century frieze depicting hunting scenes. The 18th century Blue Drawing Rooms are decorated with superb Strawberry Hill gothic plaster work and contain elegant Chippendale furniture.
