The property

Welcoming, homely and less than a mile from the sea, this cottage is perfect for young families and couples alike. Set in beautifully maintained gardens and with a sunny patio it makes the ideal spot for barbecues and alfresco dining. The open plan living area, including a well equipped kitchen offers a very sociable space and there area number of books and games to keep guests entertained. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one double bedroom and one room with bunk beds, all with plenty of storage and looking out over the beautifully maintained gardens.

Enjoying the south west aspect of the village, Blackbird Cottage benefits from easy access to the coastal footpaths and Maenporth Cove. Walking to the beach from your cottage will take approximately fifteen minutes, making it easy to leave the car behind for the day. Guests wanting to enjoy a game of tennis are just a stone's throw away from the all weather courts whilst those wanting to relax will appreciate the private terrace. Just a few minutes stroll to the central amenities, those who have not ventured to the beach may enjoy a dip in the Splash Pool or a work out in the Gym. Perhaps the best work out to be had is a circular walk from the cottage, down to Maenporth cove, up across the spectacular coastal footpath toward Swanpool and then back up through the pretty lanes to the village; roughly five miles but well worth the effort for those wanting to appreciate all that this special location has to offer. North Helford and Falmouth are perhaps the quintessential Cornish visitor destinations; a mix of beach, creek and woodland serve some of our most interesting and historic villages and towns. Falmouth itself is home to the National Maritime Museum, visitors will enjoy an amble through the narrow streets and possibly a boat trip across the River Fal or up the river towards Truro. The Cornish Cottage Holidays team is always on hand to advise you on the area and to help you plan your stay with us.
