The property

Helford 3.1 miles.

Nestled in a peaceful position on the wooded shores of the Cornish coast, with views over Falmouth Bay and across to Dennis Head, Dovefields is an idyllic coastal cottage offering the perfect setting for any seaside escape.

A short stroll will take you down to Gillan Creek and Flushing Cove, and slightly further is the picturesque Gillan Cove.

Adorned with beautiful interiors throughout, this light and spacious three-storey dwelling is perfectly suited to a family or group of eight, seeking a fun-filled adventure in this spectacular part of the country.

Open up the traditional cottage door and be welcomed in to the attractive and contemporary kitchen/diner, home to a plethora of appliances that rest peacefully within the glossy grey cabinets.

Serve up your delicious creations at the large and sociable dining table, chatting amongst friends as you delight in this hearty home-cooked feast and begin to map out all of your upcoming adventures exploring the coast.

Retire to the sitting room with a tasty glass of wine and watch a captivating movie on the TV, or head outside to the side decking to watch as the sun sets on another marvellous day in Cornwall.

There is a glorious king-size bedroom on the first floor with stunning outlook from its private balcony, and across the way is a generous bathroom.

On the ground floor a king size zip link bed can be adapted to two singles, next door to a modern shower room.

On the lower ground floor you will find a further shower room, and another king size with bifold on to the garden.

The final bedroom is a unique twin room, a fantastic spot to tuck in the children and send them off to sleep with their favourite bedtime story.

Right across the way, a stunning king-size with a private balcony completes the first floor, whilst a king-size and a twin complete the lower ground floor.

The final bedroom is a wonderful lower-ground-floor twin, a fantastic spot to tuck in the children and send them off to sleep with their favourite bedtime storey.

Make the most of warm summer days with lunch out in the rear garden, or a day spent basking in the sunshine of Bosahan Cove and Kennack Sands East.

Hike from the doorstep along the magnificent Southwest coast path uncovering Parbean Cove and Nare Point Watch Station along the way, or hop in the car and head for Lizard to see the picture postcard shores of Housel Bay Beach, before exploring National Trust owned Lizard Rangers, Cadgwith Harbour, and Lizard Point. Ride thrilling rollercoaster at Flambards Theme Park, visit the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, or meet friendly wildlife at Paradise Park and Jungle Barn Cornwall. Explore Land's End Landmark, or stay closer to home in the town of Falmouth where Pendennis Castle, Queen Mary Gardens and the National Maritime Museum await you.

Explore the neighbouring village of Helford, and the footpaths around Frenchman's Creek, taking in the glorious waterside pub, The Shipwright's Arms, or pick up a snack from the village shop.

About the location

Helford is a picturesque village on the south side of the Helford River popular for its beautiful setting, thatched cottages, and popular village inn, The Shipwrights Arms, set right on the edge of the creek with its waterside terrace. Just a short walk away is Frenchman’s Creek, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier. The Helford River Sailing Club is very popular and a regatta is held every August. In the summer a passenger ferry runs to Helford passage, the home of the Ferryboat Inn, and nearby to the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. The wildlife on the Helford River is diverse and a birdwatcher’s paradise.
