Holiday Rental House
Palm Cottage has always been a second home for the owners, so although the house is ready for your arrival and immaculately clean it has a warmth to it, from the carefully chosen interiors to the garage packed with beach toys for the children. There is a tastefully furnished open-plan living room with an ample-sized dining table at one end and a cosy seating area with an open log fire at the other. The kitchen is clean and modern with every piece of equipment, whether you're enjoying a diet of pasties or lobster during your stay. The bathroom is downstairs, with a bath and shower over. Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms; a double and two twins.

What we are told repeatedly about the cottage is that it is a perfect base for exploring the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall's secret treasure. The coastal footpath, beaches and pretty fishing villages are all within 15 minutes drive and there is plenty of information at the house about what to see and do. On the other hand you can just enjoy your time in the cottage and garden and the local hamlet with the friendly Prince of Wales pub, serving real ales and good food at reasonable prices, just over the road.More

A lovely weekend with my family in a lovely, cosy, comfortable cottage. Set in a quiet, relaxed village but also close to several places of interest to entertain all the family. We all enjoyed it and would recommend to othersMore

Additional amenities & feature info
We're experienced holiday-makers in Cornwall so we know how important it is to be prepared for the weather in throughout the year.. We are aware that one can enjoy an ice-cream on the beach in January or equally be swimming in the sea during a rainstorm in August! We can't guarantee the weather in Cornwall, but we do promise a happy holiday in our most comfortable home with a welcome tray on your arrival. From the imposing solid front door to the tiled floor vestibule you enter the beamed, open-plan, carpeted living area with its original cob walls. This room invites relaxation with its leather sofa, cosy chairs,open fireplace, window seats, several table lamps, board games, and flat screen TV. At the other end of the living room is a generous dining table, with a rocking and Windsor chairs, in front of an inglenook containing an attractive camphor chest, on top of which is an elegant locally-made stone lamp. There is a BT Home Hub connection providing free wi-fi and internet access. From the living room a couple of small steps lead up to the tiled floor hallway with the bathroom off to the left and to the right, a modern, very well equipped breakfast kitchen with a table seating six and windows overlooking the garden. Similar to the kitchen, the bathroom has a tiled floor plus extensive tiling above the generous bath with a shower over. There is also a wc, washbasin and a heated towel rail. The carpeted dog-leg staircase leads to the landing with a neat pine cupboard and a useful OS map of the Lizard Peninsula on the wall. Up three steps to the right of the landing is the large twin-bedded room, with a spacious built-in cupboard, which overlooks the garden. Off the landing to the left is the very pretty 'Beatrix Potter' smaller twin-bedded room, ideal for children, and which overlooks the palm tree and the village. The Master double-bedded room, at the other end of the landing, is also of a decent size and equally tasteful. There are a couple of built-in wardrobes and again is at the front of the house. Our large family have ensured that all five beds are very comfortable and have beautiful, freshly laundered linen, to hopefully facilitate a good night's sleep.

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated in a charming village with a pub over the road, serving local ales and excellent food at a reasonable price. A popular three miles circular walk is from Kestle Barton, brown signposted, down Frenchman's Creek to Helford and return through the wood. A foot-ferry from Helford runs across the river to Helford Passage. GUNWALLOE CHURCH COVE and KYNANCE COVE are the nearest beaches. HELSTON is a quaint old town famous for its annual Floral Dance and The Blue Anchor, one of the oldest pubs in England. POTHLEVEN has many shops and restaurants, an attractive Victorian terrace of houses and a working harbour. The Seal Sanctuary at GWEEK is one of only two in the UK and is certainly worth a visit.
How to get there
We advise that all guests have the use of a car whilst staying at Palm Cottage in order to explore this incredibly beautiful, unspoilt area of Cornwall. Flights from many UK city airports arrive into Newquay, which is then about an hour's drive to the cottage. The train is an excellent way to travel to Cornwall; overnight sleeper accommodation is available from London Paddington The nearest station is Redruth, half-an-hour away.
