The property

Minutes from the picturesque Helford River and Gillan Creek, set in a beautiful rural location with complete privacy and spectacular countryside views. This well appointed detached cottage sits just over a mile from 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.

Take to the water by canoe or boat and explore the inlets clothed in ancient oak woodlands.

Hop on the ferry to the famous Ferry Boat Inn and further down river explore the sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. The cottage is spacious with a farmhouse ambience and makes an ideal family retreat providing all home comforts.

It has 4 double bedrooms and offers flexible accommodation for up to 6 guests.

The sitting room has a beamed ceiling and wood burner to add to the cosiness during out of season breaks.

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
