Property Location


Manaccan is a small hamlet just south of the Helford River, nestled around the square are a scattering of cottages, the church and a fine freehold pub, The New Inn, which is a co-operative pub that was purchased by a group of friends and locals and rescued from closure, since it is just across the road it is well worth supporting while you are here.

The Lizard truly is an experience with so much diversity to discover on your holiday. Traditional fishing villages like Coverack, Cadgwith, Mullion and Porthleven are well worth a visit with beautiful beaches and fantastic local pubs and some of the freshest seafood around. Mullion is the largest village situated on the Lizard Peninsula and boasts a number of quality pubs, cafes and restaurants among its various attractions which include, four beaches and the towering cliffs of Mullion Cove - a fishing harbour. The Helford River is just to the north and inspired Daphne Du Maurier's Frenchmans Creek amongst others. There are some breath-taking coastal walks, which really should include a trip around the Lizard Lighthouse, Brittain's most southerly point, on a clear, windy day there cannot be many more dramatic places in the country, the Lizard point is famous for shipwrecks and the area highlights include early Spring flowers, there are beautiful yellow daffodils everywhere. At the heart of the Lizard, the stands a 13th-century church, famous for its ornate woodwork decorating the end of each pew and depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament. Kynance Cove is a tidal beach for the adventurous, famous for its white sand, turquoise sea and rock stacks. Poldhu Cove, also known as Black Pool Cove, is a lovely west-facing sandy beach is suitable for lots of fun activities from building sandcastles to beach volleyball and rocks to explore at low tide and great for swimming, surfing and windsurfing.

There is a regular ferry in season between Helford River and Helford Passage to the north, with decent pubs on both sides of the river and the gorgeous Trebah Gardens just north of the river in Mawnan Smith. The Helford River and Falmouth Harbour are both Meccas for sailing and are buzzing with activity in the summer months, usually culminating in village regattas scattered throughout July and August. To keep children entertained on wetter days Flambards is always a favourite, however earth station Goonhilly and Poldark Mine are both great fun as well. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven and beach fishing from Loe Bar. There is great diving on the Manacles from Porthkerris and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can usually find great surf at Porthleven and Poldhu.

Praa Sands in the South West of Cornwall is located between Helston and Penzance. The town contains many facilities including a shop, pub, post office and Praa Sands Gold Club. The extensive beach stretching from Rinsey Head to Hoe Point is extremely popular with the whole family, Prussia Cove, Perranuthnoe & Marazion are the nearest beaches, all within a few minutes drive. When the North Coast is 'blown out' you will find the surfers flock to Praa Sands for its powerful waves coming straight in from the Atlantic Ocean. Just inland from the beach is Pengersick Castle which dates back to the Bronze Age. Nearby Helston is famous for its Floral Dance in May, a day when the whole town stops and dresses up for the day's many dances through the streets, there are a choice of supermarkets including Tesco Sainsbury and Lidl. From Penzance, you can take the Scillonian for a day trip to the picturesque Isles of Scilly, well worth a visit if you have never been. 10 minutes down the road lies Marazion famous for St Michaels Mount, home to a medieval castle and a working local community. St Michaels Mount is accessible by causeway at low tides, or by boat. The castle is leased from the National Trust by the St Aubyn family who resides at the property maintaining and working the grounds.

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. The beaches at Gyllyngvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro.

Very charming cottage
Reviewed on 10/06/2022

Everything was perfect. Cottage is full of character and charm. Could not fault with anything. Its located in a small village. I had opportunity to speak to neighbours and villagers, everyone was very friendly and nice. During my stay only thing I struggled with was storage heaters. Am not fan of storage heaters. Cottage was very tidy and clean.
