The property

Looking over a trickling stream, this lovely terraced cottage is ideal for those wanting to explore the country walk to the beach or spend a romantic break.

With plenty of things to see and do, Squirrel's Leap offers a pretty setting within this calming woodland village. Guests will enjoy the leisure facilities and ease of access to all Falmouth has to offer. Squirrel's Leap is cheery and carefully furnished and has a spacious open plan living space. Stable doors to the front and rear lead onto the patio and communal gardens and to where the stream runs gently past. The well equipped kitchen is thoughtfully arranged and there are two bedrooms, a double and a single. There is a parking space just along the stream path and visitor parking nearby.

Set on the far edge of the Village, Squirrel's Leap enjoys access from the winding lanes which lead to and from the Swanpool beach road. Whilst just a short stroll from the centre of the Village, this spot seems to retain an air of tranquillity, being beautifully planted, guests will enjoy seasonal highlights all year round. Spring daffodils, summer ferns, rhododendrons and autumnal oaks are fastidiously managed and make up just part of the award winning flora and foliage displays in the grounds. Drawn to the Village because of the close proximity to local beaches, guests can take a fifteen minute walk along the pretty country lanes to arrive at Swanpool beach. Here you will find a sandy, sheltered cove that is popular amongst families. If you fancy lunch or dinner with a sea view we can thoroughly recommend Hooked on the Rocks serving delicious local fayre, and there are several other reputable cafes and eateries in the area. Just as convenient is the slightly quieter cove at Maenporth, again the perfect spot for a day on the beach but close enough for a quick invigorating swim. 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 Truro River. The Cornish Cottage Holidays team is always on hand to advise you on the area and to help you plan your stay with us.
