Nestled in lush green countryside on a working farm just 1½ miles from the spectacular Helford
River is Mandalay, a well presented two bedroom bungalow. Less than a mile away is the pretty
village of Manaccan which offers local facilities including post office/stores, 16th Century Inn and
Standing alone from the rest of the County, the Lizard peninsula is perhaps Cornwall's
best kept secret. Designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, the locality is rural and unspoilt
and the landscape remains largely unchanged as the years pass by. The rugged scenery is
interspersed with beautiful coves, hidden creeks, thatched cottages and colourful fishing boats
and on the nearest beach at Gillan Cove (under 2 miles away) there is a high chance you will be
the only visitors. The picture postcard village of Helford which sits sleepily on the banks of the
river is home to a sailing club and a pub on the waterfront from where you can hop on a boat to
explore the northern banks of the river.
Recently refurbished, Mandalay offers comfortable
accommodation on one level. The sitting room has leather sofas and a wood burning stove and
behind this is a well equipped kitchen. There is a good sized conservatory at the rear of the
bungalow with a dining table for six and a utility room for wet suits and muddy boots. The two
bedrooms are of a generous size and share a modern shower room with large shower cubicle.
Outside is a large enclosed lawned garden and a terrace with table and chairs, perfect for a
relaxing in the Cornish sunshine. There is parking for two cars. Please note that Mandalay is on a
working farm and you may experience the sounds and smells of the countryside!

About the location
Helston 10 miles ; Helford 1.5 miles ; Porthallow 3 miles
The village of Manaccan on the South Helford is small and friendly, with a small shop selling basic provisions and newspapers, an excellent restaurant, friendly village inn and a beautiful 12th century church. The South Helford is arguably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Cornwall. With meandering country roads, picturesque creeks, tidal inlets and pretty waterside villages, the area can be summed up in three words: tranquil, charming and timeless. The perfect spot for enjoying outdoor living, the South Helford’s sheltered coves were made for messing around on the water and strolling leisurely along the banks. Leave your ‘phone behind and embrace the simple pleasures - while away time paddling in the shallows, explore hidden coves with a hire boat from St Anthony, and stroll through woodland to enjoy a picnic on the beach.
