    “What a wonderful house, in a great location.”

    The house had everything we needed for our short stay and was very spacious and comfortable for our party of 7. Gweek is a very pretty little village and the local store is a real gem. The location is perfect for exploring the Lizard Peninsular and beyond. We would love to return one day. Best wishes, Ian and Tina

The property

In the pretty village of Gweek, at the head of the Helford River in Cornwall is fabulous Gweek House; a four-bedroom Victorian house, ideal for a family of eight or a group of friends.

Sitting in 1.5 acres of private rural gardens and lush woodland, peaceful seclusion and dark skies can both be found abundance.

The perfect base from which to explore both the stunning coast and countryside of Cornwall, Gweek House is a spacious, elegant home from home.

In the contemporary kitchen you’ll find everything you need to prepare delicious meals which can be enjoyed at the formal dining table.

Here the woodburning stove paints a cosy backdrop to a sociable evening spent recounting your day.

The sitting room is a wonderful, open space in which to relax.

Large bay windows fill the room with light, whilst a second woodburning stove ensures the room is warm and inviting at any time of year.

For a quiet moment away from the group, you'll find the sunroom with its triple aspect and long views over the garden is the perfect spot for relaxing after a busy day of adventure.

When sleep calls, retire to one of four bedrooms, all completed with elegant furnishings and plush beds.

A king-size with en-suite, a further king-size, a double and a twin room offer ultimate flexibility, all within proximity to the pristine bathroom.

As you wake to the sound of birdsong, head outside to enjoy morning coffee looking over the luscious lawn and lofty trees.

There are plenty of seating areas to choose from; here you can dine alfresco or simply spend time as a family throughout your stay.

Head into the village of Gweek for all the essentials, where you'll find a convenience store, a welcoming pub, and a little café within the boatyard.

The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is within walking distance and well worth a visit.

Also nearby are the Museum of Cornish Life, and of course the glorious Helford River with its waterborne pursuits.

Further afield, enjoy tours of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall, discover Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII in 1540, or relax upon on of the many Blue Flag beaches for which Cornwall is renowned.

Reaching Lizard, the most southerly point of the British mainland, visit Housel Bay Beach, enjoy the elevated vantage point of Pistil Meadow, head towards Lizard Lighthouse, or explore The Lizard Heritage Coast by foot, taking in your coastal abode.

With much to see nearby, you’re assured of a memorable holiday at Gweek House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Helston 2.6 miles; Porthleven 6.2 miles; Falmouth 9.4 miles.

The civil parish and village of Gweek rests on the head of the Helford River, on the edge of the Lizard Heritage Coast in Cornwall. Resting moments away from the scenic walks and beaches of the Lizard peninsula, whilst also being close to the bustling towns of Helston, Porthleven and Falmouth, Gweek is a relaxing base for a staycation. Offering visitors sumptuous meals at the traditional pub and B&B of The Black Swan, whilst also offering a post office & convenience store, Gweek is well-equipped for a self-catered break. Gweek additionally enjoys access to the marvellous Cornish Seal Sanctuary, where visitors can tour the rescue centre and even spot an array of penguins, ponies, otters and goats! Avid walkers can enjoy hiking west along the river to the scenic point of Tremayne Quay, a place that is also ideal for any canine companions! Keep the kids entertained at Helston's fantastic Flambards Theme Park or board the heritage railway and experience the thrill of running through the mixture of the region's country and coastal scenery. Porthleven not only offers a stunning beach, but is bound to keep the history buffs of the group entertained with the nearby National Trust property of Penrose, a manor house with dog-walking opportunities, an on-site café and a stunning, adjacent lake of The Loe. With Helford Passage, Constantine and Maenporth resting a stone's throw away, Gweek truly enjoys an idyllic position that is perfect for any Cornwall adventure!
