The property

Sited above Flushing Cove and the south west coastal footpath in an acre of sloping gardens adorned with exotic shrubs and tall fir trees, St Anthony View boasts scenic views over Gillan Creek and Falmouth Bay.

This detached single storey property occupies a peaceful setting just over 100 yards from Flushing Cove beach, which has limited parking and as such is rarely crowded. A little further along the coast path is Gillan Cove, with its shingle beach and grassy banks that are ideal for picnicking, and across the creek near to the mouth of the Helford River is St Anthony in Meneage, a quaint village with an ancient Norman church and boat hire/tuition facilities.

The walks along the Helford River will reveal a tranquil woodland river world and passenger ferries operate from the banks to the Helford Passage on the north bank, from where the National Trust Glendurgan Garden and the adjacent Trebah Garden can be visited.

In contrast to the softer landscape of the Helford River a short drive south leads to the Lizard Point (the most southerly point in Britain) and a dramatic coastline fringed with sea cliffs, white sand beaches and the charming fishing villages at Cadgwith, Coverack and Mullion Cove.

St Anthony View is a top pick for a family holiday or romantic break.

Equipped with comfortable, modest furnishings the accommodation is practical with an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom and en-suite shower room to the twin bedroom.

The open plan living room incorporates a fitted kitchen, dining area and sitting area complete with plump modern settees.

The garden is a special feature incorporating a private patio with a fixed barbecue and garden furniture.

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.
