The property

Living up to its name, enjoying a south westerly aspect overlooking beautifully landscaped gardens to the stream which runs through the village is Summer Cottage. This beautifully presented property has a stylish open plan living space on the ground floor with French windows opening to a terrace with timber garden furniture, providing the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two doubles which are furnished with memory foam mattresses and a bunk room which is perfect for children. Completing the picture is a spacious shower room which has a double size shower. To the front of the cottage is allocated parking for one car plus visitor parking.

Set on the North side of the Village, Summer Cottage enjoys access from the winding lanes which lead in from Swanpool road. Whilst just a short stroll from the centre of the village, this spot seems to retain an additional air of tranquillity, being beautifully planted, guests will enjoy seasonal highlights all year round. Spring daffodils, summer ferns and rhododendrons and autumnal oaks are fastidiously managed by the grounds team and make up just part of the flora and foliage. Guests are bound to be drawn to the Village because of the close proximity to local beaches; a fifteen minute walk along the local lanes will have you at Swanpool. Here you will find a sandy, protected and vibrant cove. If you fancy lunch or dinner with a sea view we thoroughly recommend Indaba, set on the west side of the cove and serving superb local fayre. Just as convenient is the slightly quieter cove at Maenporth, again the perfect spot in which to spend a day on the beach but close enough to pop to for a couple of hours of just an 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.
