  • “Well located and peaceful location.”

    Cottage was homely and the patio was positioned to enjoy the afternoon sun. Secure garden was good for our dogs. If thinking about upgrades a DVD player so the extensive dvd collection could be viewed would be one thought.

The property

Helston 4.1 miles.

Settled on a beautiful working farm in the stunning Cornish countryside is this delightful single-storey dwelling, Edwin's View.

Home to traditional beams, tiled floors and rough rendered walls, this wonderful abode combines all the contemporary comforts you could wish for in a rustic farmstead, ideal for a family of four.

Be welcomed into the quaint sitting room following a day outdoors and relax on the corner sofa in here, with a woodburning stove providing extra warmth and a TV with Sky perfect for your evening entertainment.

Enjoy peaceful moments in the spacious conservatory, home to an armchair and a sofa, you can sip your morning coffee whilst gazing out over the countryside.

Down the hallway amidst exposed timber beams and delightful décor is the lovely twin bedroom, home to two single beds, a TV and a unique hanging rail made from an old pipe, this room is perfect for children.

The fully tiled bathroom boasts a drench shower over the P-shape bath, providing you with equally luxurious options for how to freshen up.

A romantic king-size bedroom boasts a traditional metal bedstead alongside oak furnishings and windows overlooking the farmyard.

From here, a few steps down take you into the kitchen/diner, a light and airy space, perfect for hosting home-cooked meals around the large extending dining table for any friends visiting, with a wealth of appliances within the sleek, fitted kitchen.

Let the dogs run around the lawn in the enclosed garden with a patio area too with furniture so you can soak up the scenery and even dine alfresco.

Take a trip to the village of Praze-an-Beeble a few miles down the road, home to the nearest shop and pub, while four miles away is the market town of Helston, home to folklore and legend along with plenty of amenities including shops, pubs and restaurants.

Visit The Museum of Cornish Life to learn about the history of the area from the thousands of objects and various exhibits here, or embark on the self-guided Helston Heritage Trail taking you around the streets of one of Cornwall's oldest towns.

Notice the quirky features of the town like the open water channels, or Kennels, bringing clean stream water into the town, as you browse the local shops for fresh produce or souvenirs, or choose a pub or café to dine at.

Helston is home to one of Cornwall's largest farmers' markets so you can pick up some locally sourced goodies every week.

Enjoy the outdoors at Penrose estate where lots of walking paths, cycle trails and even bridleways are mapped out across enchanting woodland and open pastures, with dogs welcome too.

The lovely town of Porthleven lies on the coast and is the UK's most southerly working port with huge sea defences which see visitors flock in during winter storms to watch the wild waves crash against the sea walls, it's quite a sight!

The surf is a great attraction for experienced surfers, whilst Praa Sands still has powerful waves but is much better for beginners and less experienced surfers, as well as enjoying a longer stretch of sandy beach to relax on, perfect for a day at the beach!

With the Lizard Heritage Coast and the South West Coast Path to explore too, you'll have plenty to occupy you on a wonderful escape to Cornwall at Edwin's View.

About the location

PORTHLEVEN

Helston 3 miles; Penzance 10 miles; Hayle 11 miles; St. Ives 17 miles; Falmouth 17.5 miles.

Porthleven is one of south west Cornwall’s hidden, coastal gems, located near Helston, famous for its annual Flora Dance Festival. Situated between Lizard Point and Land’s End, Porthleven retains the feel of a traditional Cornish fishing village, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Cornish coastline. The iconic clock tower sits on the harbour entrance and the pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants cluster around the historic picturesque inner harbour, where there is plenty of boating and marine activity. With a warren of streets lined with classic Cornish, granite cottages, an extensive beach manned with lifeguards, the chance for alfresco dining in one of a number of well reviewed restaurants, and crabbing off the harbour, there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, all year round. Porthleven is building a reputation for eating out with a popular food festival established in the spring. Out of season, Porthleven has one of the best surf breaks in the country where you can sit down and get lost for hours watching the energetic surfers riding the waves. There are some fabulous hidden coves along this stretch of coastline, including Praa Sands, Poldhu Cove, and Rinsey, a magical setting for the more energetic. You may have even seen pictures of Porthleven on television, being one of the best spots in the UK for storm watching, with the crashing winter waves often being used as the backdrop to weather forecasts. Walkers will enjoy the South West Coast Path, adventuring west past Rinsey Head with spectacular views, or south across Loe Bar to Penrose Estate with its National Trust cafe, and on to Gunwalloe Church Cove. Take a trip to the Isles of Scilly by boat or plane and marvel at the display of sub-tropical gardens at the stunning Tresco Abbey. The Eden Project near St. Austell offers an interesting day out. Porthleven is the ideal base for discovering the delights of west Cornwall and the Lizard Peninsula.
