The property

Close to a gently running stream positioned in an atmospheric woodland setting, Gillan makes a lovely holiday homestead for families, friends and couples. This wonderful holiday cottage has a spacious, homely interior with all the creature comforts. Within walking distance of Maenporth Beach and a short drive of fabulous Falmouth and the attractions of this favoured maritime resort, it's a cottage to return to again and again. Nestled on the south side of the Village, watch the children play Pooh Sticks on the ornate wooden bridge while you relax on the sunshine patio with a morning coffee.


The on-site facilities are all within an easy stroll with courts offering the choice of football, netball, basketball, volleyball and tennis. Enjoy a gym workout or take a dip in the splash pool. In attractive grounds displaying flora and woodlands of oak trees, the Village of Gardens promises a prime position close to Falmouth's beautiful beaches and resort attractions. The sandy stretch of sheltered beach at Swanpool is a 15 minute walk through the lanes - this lively cove is great for a paddle or swim, hiring a rowing boat, playing mini golf or enjoying refreshment in the beach cafe. From here ramble the South West Coastal Path to glorious Gyllyngvase Beach for a seaside picnic. Visit colourful maritime Falmouth with museums, art galleries and historic Pendennis Castle or enjoy a boat trip across the River Fal heading for Truro - this cobbled cathedral capital has fabulous shops, a cinema and a theatre providing entertainment for all ages.


Cleverly presented, Gillan is furnished with style and includes a spacious
open plan sitting room with French windows opening onto a private patio perfect for lazy lunches and the communal garden beyond. The kitchen is pristine and there are
three bedrooms; two doubles - the master with an en-suite shower room and a comfy twin bedroom, plus a family bathroom for washing away sandy toes after a day at the beach.
