Arrival - We met Linda who took us down to the cottage and showed us everything we needed to know and also provided us with fantastic freshly baked bread and...

We chose this cottage due to its very private location and beautiful views, it certainly didn't disappoint! What a fantastic week we had with our children. We received a warm welcome from Linda. Beautiful fresh flowers, home-made bread, cream tea, even dog treats! What a lovely surprise. The cottage was spotlessly clean, beautifully and thoughtfully furnished. It had a lovely,...

About the neighborhood
The village of Mawgan is 10 to 15 minutes on foot from the cottage where you will find a very useful convenient shop selling all you may need during your stay. The Ship Inn is a great place for an evening dinner out, take away fish and chips or just for a local ale or two. Whilst in the village visit the St Mawgan-in-Meneage church.

Other places to eat are at the nearby Trelowarren Estate, The Gweek Inn, The Prince of Wales (large garden and very friendly), and an extensive menu. Pop in for a pasta at Zucchinis in Gweek and of course there is the Halzephron on the way to the beach. This is just a handful of places to choose.
Gweek has the Seal Sanctuary, Helston (famous for Flora Day) has Flambards for a great day out.
