With golden beaches, walks from the front door, a special garden for barbecues and boating heaven, could this picturesque bolt hole be just what you are looking for? A romantic hideaway designed with families and couples in mind, Bosgilly is a beautifully refurbished detached bungalow tucked away in the pretty village of Mawgan. Between the wooded valley slopes of the romantic Helford River and the ancient market town of Helston - this destination is bliss for city escapees seeking some serious R&R and an excellent launch pad for the Lizard Peninsula beaches and fishing coves.
Screened from view in an immensely peaceful spot, it is bordered by open countryside and the historical Trelowarren estate and woodlands. Descend a private tree lined drive to discover this supremely comfortable holiday home with a large and established sloping garden.

The accommodation is arranged on one level and designed to maximise garden and woodland views. Bedrooms are furnished with good quality beds, both bathrooms are pristine and the bold red and white kitchen is fully equipped. Doors lead from the sitting room to a sun-trap patio for barbecues and a terrace for wildlife watching.

Follow the stepping stones across the stream and trace the public footpath through scenic woodlands. You will also be close to Frenchman's Creek, the subject of Daphne Du Maurier's famous novel. Hire a motor boat, kayak or dinghy and explore the area on water. Splendid sub-tropical Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens are nearby whilst spectacular Kynance Cove Beach should not missed!

About the location
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.
