    “Born and bred in Falmouth, I have visited Cornwall many times over the years and stayed in a lot of cottages and I must say Woodbine Cottage is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in.”

    Spacious with room for 8 people, the cottage has a nice balance of comfort and practicality. The lounge/diner was cosy with plenty of seating for our party and the kitchen was very well equipped. The 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 WCs, were key in our decision to book the cottage. It was good to be able to enter the cottage via the large utility room and to be able to remove dirty outdoor clothing and use the handy downstairs bathroom before entering the living areas.

    Spacious with room for 8 people, the cottage has a nice balance of comfort and practicality. The lounge/diner was cosy with plenty of seating for our party and the kitchen was very well equipped. The 4 good sized bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 3 WCs, were key in our decision to book the cottage. It was good to be able to enter the cottage via the large utility room and to be able to remove dirty outdoor clothing and use the handy downstairs bathroom before entering the living areas. There was plenty of off-road parking for our 2 cars and a lovely secluded patio area with seating and a fire pit. On our arrival, the cottage was a little cool, but the underfloor heating and panel heaters soon had it lovely and warm. Regrettably, it was not cold enough to warrant firing up the woodburning stove. Must come back in the winter and try it out. The cottage is set in the beautiful village of Mylor Bridge which has everything you could want. There is a lovely pub in the village serving Cornish ales and an extensive menu. The village has two shops including a post office, a butchers and a fresh fish shop. There is a large well equipped play park for children of all ages. The scenic walk from Mylor Bridge around the headland to Restronguet Creek and the Pandora Inn with its floating jetty, is not to be missed. Close by, the town of Falmouth offers a bustling town centre with plenty of restaurants and shops. Falmouth has several good beaches. Pleasure boat cruises on the Fal and Helford rivers are a great way to take in the coastline. Within a short drive, you can access the world class visitor attractions of The Eden Project, St Michaels Mount and The Lost gardens of Heligan. Despite the inclement weather, we managed to fit in a visit to the Eden Project, a Fal river cruise, a walk to the Pandora Inn and several trips to the beach. We had a great holiday and look forward to staying in Woodbine Cottage again in the near future.

The property

Woodbine Cottage can be found in the heart of the picturesque Cornish village of Mylor Bridge, at the head of the Mylor Creek.

With its spectacular location near the endless wonders of Cornwall and its picturesque coast, its charming interior with period features paying homage to its creation in the 18th century, its four beautifully appointed bedrooms, and its patio with furniture, this detached cottage is ideal for families or groups of friends looking to explore all that Cornwall has to offer.

After a day of sight-seeing, come home and relax in the living room/dining room warmed by a woodburning stove.

Later, everyone can pitch in to make a delicious meal that can be eaten indoors at the dining table or, if the weather is nice, outside on the patio.

At the end of the day, freshen up in the downstairs wet room where you can enjoy a soak in the bath, or first-floor shower room, before retiring to one of the four beautiful bedrooms for some well-deserved shuteye.

There is a king-size bed with a TV, as well as a double, a twin, and a small twin, suitable for kids.

You can drive the short distance to the famed Pandora Inn, a thatched pub dating back to the 13th century, or take a pleasant stroll into the centre of Mylor Bridge, where you can shop for supplies at the local store and treat your loved ones to wonderful food at the stone-built Lemon Arms.

It's also easy to reach the coast; visit the picture-perfect coastal town of Falmouth and spend the day at Castle Beach, where you and the kids can play in the rock pools, or carry on to Gyllyngvase Beach, where you can go kayaking, swimming, or simply soak up the sun.

The National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle are among popular destinations, as are the stunning Truro Cathedral and the Lost Gardens of Heligan, as well as Trebah, Enys, and Trelissick Gardens.

Make unforgettable memories at Woodbine Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

MYLOR BRIDGE

Falmouth 4 miles; Truro 8 miles.

A sought-after and picturesque village at the head of Mylor Creek that runs up from the Carrick Roads, the World’s third largest deep water harbour. Boats and sailing, wooded creeks, softly gliding water, riverside pubs and fabulous gardens epitomise the area. This friendly village has a superb selection of local shops (try the fresh fish!), a Post Office, a good pub and several restaurants within easy reach. The nearby harbour town of Falmouth with its exciting Maritime Museum and its castle, beaches and marina makes a great day out while the Cathedral city of Truro famous for its cobbled streets, theatre, museums and vibrant shopping centre should not be missed. Take the car, or a boat from Falmouth, for a trip up the stunningly beautiful Helford River and while there, call in at Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens for the horticultural treat of the year. The area is perfectly placed too for exploring the rugged cliffs, sandy coves and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula, also The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within an hour’s drive.
