The property

Chenalls boasts beautiful countryside views and is located within a fifteen minute drive of Porthleven which is set in the middle of a huge sweeping bay, the beach and bespoke shops are ideal for family days out.

This spacious stone Cornish farmhouse offers comfort throughout. Standing detached in a rural setting its interior displays the timeless charm of rustic fireplaces, exposed granite features, beamed ceilings, original timber panelled walls and latched doors which, complimented by a pleasing mix of antique and contemporary furnishings, extend a homely backdrop for a restful stay. Entry is straight into the hall, off the hall is a utility area and shower room, through the hall into the modern light and bright kitchen and at the other end of the kitchen is a dining table for the family to gather around and enjoy a family meal. Step up onto the fired earth floor tiles into a nicely appointed lounge warmed at each end by wood burning stoves that exude year round cosiness to add to your comfort. A door leads out from the lounge onto a secluded and sheltered garden, with its own summer house, just the perfect setting for alfresco meals and barbecues. Upstairs cream carpeted bedrooms are in keeping with the traditional character and coordinated fabrics on the tasteful ornate bedsteads add splashes of colour. Children have freedom and space to play in the adjoining orchard or on land that extends down behind the farmhouse.

Explore the inland and coastal footpaths and experience the exhilarating views from the granite cliff tops. You can join the coastal footpath at Porthleven to experience some amazing coastal views. Porthleven has everything you would want for a day out from the harbour, beach, bespoke shops, little cafes and pubs to fine restaurants, including Rick Stein. You could also get on a boat for a spot of fishing and bring home your rewards for a fish supper. Vibrant Penzance has something for everyone or enjoy a bite to eat or sample the fine Cornish ale at Marazion beach, overlooking the mystical St Michael's Mount with fortress pointing skywards. Many south west and Atlantic coast resorts are within easy range and the golden beaches and hidden coves of the Lizard Peninsula along with a variety of attractions.

About the location

HELSTON

Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
