The property

A leisurely walk inland from the stunning coastline and beach at Praa Sands on Mount's Bay, along quiet country lanes banked with a profusion of wild flowers in spring/summer, sits Ramblers Retreat in Tresowes, nr Ashton. This peaceful hamlet nestles at the foot of Tregonning Hill, a dominant terrain and Cornish World Heritage Site surveying a 360 degree panorama over southwest Cornwall where it is possible to site both coastlines on clear days. A gentle uphill walk to its summit will reward you with spectacular views and reveal the remains of a Celtic settlement dating back to 250BC.

There are level walks from the front door step and thirsty expeditions can be rounded-off with some refreshment at The Lion and Lamb pub which is a 10 minute walk from the property. Naturalists will discover a rich and varied wildlife, no more obvious than the glorious melodies of bird song that fill the air, and dog owners will find plenty of open countryside for their pets to run around. There is a coastal golf course and surf school within a 5 minute drive and Penzance, Marazion and St Ives are within a 9 mile radius.

Practical for couples and families, Ramblers Retreat is an honest and comfortably appointed single storey holiday home. Whilst the owners and their very friendly dog, Ruben, live in the adjoining property it is not overlooked and enjoys a pleasant and private outlook over a pretty garden. Patio doors in the sitting room open onto a sheltered patio equipped with garden furniture and a gas barbecue and the master bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room.

Guests arrive to a complimentary homemade cream tea. Parking for one car and secure storage for bikes/surfboards. There is a wildlife pond on the grounds.

About the location

HELSTON

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.
