    However, somebody had used the downstairs toilet and not cleaned it. The wardrobe in the master bedroom had two damp handtowels in the bottom of it, which smelt lovely. Far from ideal and given the supposed extra lengths that are being undertaken with the cleaning, as the checkout time is 9am instead of 10 to allow for this. It left us feeling concerned - what else isn’t being done properly. It would be fair to say that cleanliness was an issue with this property. One of the sofas moved during the week and rubbish, dust and toenails were found whilst moving it back. Hot water was an issue at times. The bed in the master bedroom was very uncomfortable and small, at 6ft, I found my feet hitting the foot of the bed during the night. The location was good for Maenporth beach and Swanpool. Parking was very close and the spaces are a good size. Parking around the park is an issue, staff seem to abandon their cars outside the bar/restaurant area which can be an issue with oncoming traffic.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Foxglove Cottage. We are very sorry to hear of the issues you raised after you left the property. Had we been notified during your stay we would have taken immediate action to remedy the issues raised. We have spoken with the owner and the housekeeper who will ensure the points mentioned will be addressed. There is a booster switch in the airing cupboard which would have given more hot water if needed. The double bed in the master bedroom is a standard 6ft 3', bed comfort is a personal preference and there has been no mention of this previously. Despite the points raised we hope you enjoyed your visit to The West Country. Owner relations

The property

Tucked in the corner, just along from the tennis courts, Foxglove is cleverly situated to admire the garden views.

Foxglove is beautifully presented and light and airy, with attractive open plan living space and French doors opening onto the gardens plus a double aspect corner providing plenty of view points.

The well equipped kitchen has ample work area and there are two bedrooms, a twin and a double both overlooking the gardens.

Equipped with comfortable terrace furniture it is a pleasant place to relax after a walk to the beach or a quick workout in the gym!

There is a parking space and visitor parking nearby.

Enjoying the warmth of the south west aspect of the village, Foxglove enjoys simple access to the paths and lanes leading to Maenporth Cove.

Walking to the beach from your cottage will take fifteen minutes or so, making it easy to leave the car behind for the day.

Foxglove guests wanting to enjoy a game of tennis are just a stone's throw away from the all weather courts and those wanting to avoid such strenuous activity will appreciate the secluded aspect of the terrace.

For those who have not ventured to the beach may enjoy a dip in the splash pool or free time in the gym.

Perhaps the best work out to be had is a circular walk from the cottage, down to Maenporth cove, up across the spectacular coast path toward Swanpool and then back up through the lanes to the village; roughly five miles but well worth the effort for those wanting to soak up the best that this special location has to offer. North Helford and Falmouth are perhaps the quintessential Cornish visitor destinations; a mix of beach, creek and woodland serve some of our most interesting and historic villages and towns.

Falmouth itself is home to the National Maritime Museum, visitors will enjoy an amble through the narrow streets and possibly a boat trip across the River Fal or up the River towards Truro.

The Cornish Cottage Holidays team is always on hand to advise you on the area and to help you plan your stay with us. The Village of Gardens, Pendra Loweth is a village of purpose built and privately owned self-catering holiday cottages.

Situated in the beautiful and peaceful valley leading down to Maenporth Beach, Falmouth.

With onsite facilities including tennis courts, children's outdoor play area and an indoor plunge pool (seasonal opening hours).

About the location

FALMOUTH

Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
