    “A little gem!”

    We thought it might be a bit remote but it was fine and we enjoyed the countryside, the coast, and the high quality of the pubs and restaurants within a few miles.

The modern kitchen is a creative place to cook, and there are four bedrooms, family bathroom and an ensuite shower room.

The gently sloping south-facing garden, a feature of the property, with many unusual shrubs and interest all year round.

There is a patio for alfresco dining, a small ornamental stream and covered pond (please supervise very young children) and a terraced lawn.

Children will love to run free in the small orchard and grassy area opposite the cottage.

Guests have use of an outhouse perfect for storing surfboards, wetsuits and beach equipment after a fun day at the beach.

Manaccan village with a family-friendly thatched pub and seasonal bistro restaurant, and Helford village is just over 2 miles with a shop and pub.

Ramblers will enjoy the scenic walks around the creeks of the Helford including Frenchman's Creek made famous by Daphne du Maurier's novel.

About the location


Helston 10 miles ; Helford 1.5 miles ; Porthallow 3 miles

The village of Manaccan on the South Helford is small and friendly, with an excellent restaurant, friendly village inn and a beautiful 12th century church. The South Helford is arguably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Cornwall. With meandering country roads, picturesque creeks, tidal inlets and pretty waterside villages, the area can be summed up in three words: tranquil, charming and timeless. The perfect spot for enjoying outdoor living, the South Helford’s sheltered coves were made for messing around on the water and strolling leisurely along the banks. Leave your ‘phone behind and embrace the simple pleasures - while away time paddling in the shallows, explore hidden coves with a hire boat from St Anthony, and stroll through woodland to enjoy a picnic on the beach.

Note: There is a small ornamental stream and covered pond. Note: One dog welcome at a charge of £30.00 per week. Note: Check in time for this property is 4pm
