“Beautiful cottage and perfect base for this stunning part of Cornwall”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

A very well presented cottage, lovely garden and private drive located in this beautiful part of Cornwall. Just a short drive to Helford, St Anthony and stunning walks like Frenchman's Creek. Also very easy reach to coves and beaches (Kynance Cove, Church Cove, Kennack Sands etc). 40 mins from Falmouth (recommend Maritime Museum) and Truro. Many places to eat, especially the Prince of Wales pub over the road!

“ideal peaceful well equipped and cared for character cottage”
Reviewed 7 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This cottage is in a terrace of character cottages in the centre of Newton- in St Martin, a tiny village within a short distance of Helston. It Is very quiet and there is a friendly well-stocked shop at the garage ,a minutes walk away. The pub opposite serves good bar food and excellent restaurant food.The garden behind the cottage is secluded and there are delightful sheltered spots in which to sit ,sit and read or to have outdoor meals. Inside the cottage is comfortable, well equipped and tastefully furnished . Meals can be eaten in the kitchen or in the beautiful beamed dining end of thre front reception room where there is a lovely open fire The bathroom is downstairs and hot water is plentiful
There are lots of nearby attractions We revisited the Flambards theme Park to see the lovely reconstructed victorian village and a wedding gown display but there are lots of theme park attractions for children. The Seal sanctuary at Gweek,the Helford river estuary and Porthleven were other lovely days out and we enjoyed a visiy to a craft exhilition at Trelowarren country house /estate Beautiful beaches at Poldhu and Gunwalloe and a lovely walk to Polurrian across the cliffs are all great. Poldu has good facilties for families with an excellent beach cafe ,toilets and lifeguards
The rental for this cottage is exceptionally good value and we have visited it 4 or so times in the last 6/7 years at different ends of the season and with visitors from abroad.Itwould not be suitable for people with difficulty in walking because of the steep stairs and the downstairs bathroom but otherwise we cannot recommendit highly enough

“comfortable with all you need”

Most enjoyable week. The cottage has all it needs and is very comfortable, a real pleasure to come back to each day after exploring. It was very handy to have wifi. I also made use of the garage on departure day as it rained so I loaded the car up in there! The garden is beautiful as is the interior of the cottage.
