The property

A magical setting for lovers of sand and sea the prestigious Maenporth Estate lies in 29 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland on a hill above Maenporth Cove.

An exclusive estate of privately owned residences, a wonderful outlook over the deeply wooded Maen Valley and its wildlife lake, with views extending over scenic headlands and far across Falmouth Bay awaits.

Boasting excellent recreational facilities, the Leisure Centre includes a 15 metre indoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, table tennis, pool table and a sun terrace with barbecue and picnic seating.

Behind the Leisure Centre lies an enclosed children's play area and two all-weather tennis courts.

Walk the scenic coast path to Falmouth or Helford Passage, or follow a leafy footpath inland to the pretty village of Mawnan Smith.

Trebah and Glendurgan sub-tropical gardens are within three miles and Falmouth's challenging golf course is two miles.

As an alternative to self catering, enjoy a hearty lunch, evening meal, or a light snack in the top rated Cove Restaurant and Bar.

A beachside cafe also serves refreshments throughout the year.

Wake to the sound of gentle lapping waves or the crashing of a surging tide on tarantreth (thunder beach).

Gaze out through the bedroom window into the secluded Maen valley at the circling crows as they fly undisturbed, walk through the quiet woodland, draw or play board games with the children, let the soft, golden sand and cold water run through your toes.

On long, warm days, relax on the balcony, close your eyes and sip on a cold glass of Chablis, while the birdsong fills your ears and the gentle Cornish breeze takes away the stress of modern life.

On colder days, relax in the warmth and comfort of the Living room and enjoy a mug of tea while reading a Cornish classic.

Whenever you are planning your holiday break, Tarantreth is an ideal choice from which to relax and maximise your experience of Cornwall, and plan your return visit.
