    “The area and attractions were just amazing, the beaches and facilities were fantastic.”


    Sea shanty was nice, open planned, newly carpeted and had an abundance of little things that just caterered for the visitors who flew to the destination and who otherwise would have brought thier own supplies etc ie, sachets of tea, coffee, sugar, just enough to make a welcome cuppa, as well as all manner of crockery and utensils, and a large host of maps, books, games, films, to inform and entertain guests, the dishwasher is a clever addition, but we only used it once, but family's would benefit greatly from it. On the downside however we found Sea Shanty to be dirty, and in need of a deep clean, it was evident it had been cleaned prior to our arrival, new bedding and towels, and hoovered, but in the downstairs toilet there was bits of hair / stubble all over the sink (obviously following a man having a shave) there were many spiders and cobwebs through the property, and the White painted shelf at kitchen / living room area was covered in dust (enough you could draw and see what had been drawn) The external patio area was nice and sunny (given this, a parasol would have been nice) but we did not spend any time there, due to the fact it was literally moving with ants. So very much a mixed review from us, we hope the cons are addressed before they become an issue to future guests, and that the pros are noted as being greatly apprieciated.

The property

Just a mile from the beach at Maenporth and the coastal footpath with stunning views from this spectacular coastline. Sea Shanty is a beautifully presented three bedroom cottage.

The light, bright and stylish open plan living room has French windows opening to a patio at the rear which backs onto the communal gardens.

A wooden picnic bench and barbecue allow for alfresco dining whilst children can have fun on the large adjoining lawn.

Upstairs are three pretty bedrooms with a seaside theme plus a family bathroom.

To the front the cottage overlooks the stream. Enjoying the south west aspect of the village, Sea Shanty Cottage benefits from easy access to the coastal footpaths and Maenporth Cove.

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

Guests wanting to enjoy a game of tennis are just a stone's throw away from the all weather courts whilst those wanting to relax will appreciate the private terrace.

Just a few minutes stroll to the central amenities, those who have not ventured to the beach may enjoy a dip in the Splash Pool or a work out 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 coastal footpath toward Swanpool and then back up through the pretty lanes to the village; roughly five miles but well worth the effort for those wanting to appreciate all 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 Truro River.

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, 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.
