    - Tracey, October 2021

    Thank your feedback. We haven't received any previous comments regarding the mattress being uncomfortable. As beds are a matter of preference, it maybe that the mattress was slightly firmer than you might be used to in your own home. We will however, ensure that the mattress is checked over.

The property

Perfect for exploring Falmouth's famed resort and the picturesque Helford Estuary, Nanparra Cottage nestles in a rural village setting within a 10 minute drive of Maenporth's sandy cove and beach.

Set in a country lane in Budock Water with convenience store, inn and restaurant within a short walk, this attractive whitewashed character cottage makes a great base for family and friends seeking a coastal and country getaway. Fabulous Falmouth with deep water harbour, National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and quirky gift shops, art galleries and eateries is four miles away.

From the harbour, enjoy Rick Stein's Fish & Chips before boarding the ferry to picturesque Flushing, St Mawes or Truro, or take a fishing excursion or seal safari.

The sandy beaches of Swanpool and Gyllyngvase boast good cafes for waterside refreshment.

The florally scenic National Trust Gardens at Glendurgan, Trebah and Carwinion are within easy reach of Nanparra Cottage.

Or enjoy a round of golf or don walking boots and ramble the coast path through ancient woodland.

Hire a kayak or boat and discover secret creeks and tiny coves on the banks of the River Helford, with a picnic basket or pasty.

Reward your efforts with a pub lunch in one of the waterside inns at Helford Passage or Helford Village, linked via the passenger ferry.

Nanparra Cottage has a traditional Cornish cottage vibe; the open plan living room is cosy and welcoming with exposed beams, stone hearth and squashy sofas creating a comfortable haven to return to after a day of adventure.

Enjoy mealtime gatherings around the dining table, or dine in one of Falmouth's restaurants with a sea view.

Rustle up breakfast in the kitchen and take an invigorating shower after a swim in the ocean.

The bedrooms are country casual; the master with double bed and additional single bed (fifth guest welcome on request) and the twin is ideal for both adults and children.

The enclosed paved patio at the front makes a superb sunspot for morning coffee before venturing out for the day.

About the location


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.
