The accommodation itself is brand new and modern and there was nothing that we...

Thank you Simon and Family - look forward to welcoming you back in the future

About the neighbourhood
Godolphin Cross is a tranquil village situated in West Cornwall. The village is just 5 KM from the beaches of the South Coast and yet only 10 KM from the beaches of the North Coast. The village has easy access to all the major attractions in the area but is a haven away from it all at the end of the day. Godolphin Village is on established walking routes and has the National Trust Godolphin House and Estate within 0.5 KM. The area is rich in mining history and the iconic tin mines chimneys are seen around the area. For those looking for a more active stay there are : 12 golf courses within a 20 KM range, The South West coastal path, sea fishing from Porthleven and Penzance, surfing beaches (North and South coast), art galleries abound in the local area with St Ives and Falmouth both offer... more
