Experience - The Area...

Just a 10 minute drive from the maritime town of Falmouth which is home to Henry VIIIs Pendennis Castle, Trenoweth Vean Cottages are set in an elevated position just outside the village of Mabe with far reaching views of the surrounding countryside.  To one side of a country lane, these three sympathetically converted cottages are set in a row adjacent to the owners farmhouse offering comfortable year round holiday accommodation with the added benefit of double glazing.

The village of Mabe, half a mile, has a post office / stores and a pub which offers a good selection of pub food, there is a large supermarket at Penryn 5 minutes drive, and the sandy beaches of Falmouth Bay are approximately 5 miles. There is a pleasant circular walk around Argal Reservoir nearby which is noted for its wildlife and is a well-stocked coarse fishery, and Stithians Lake Country Park about 4 miles away has a range of water-based activities including sailing, windsurfing and kayaking.

The Flicka Foundation Horse and Donkey Sanctuary is close by and the glorious gardens of Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Trebah, on the banks of the Helford River, are less than a 15 minute drive away. Each cottage has its own individual character but there are many similar features. Low walled patio gardens are laid out in front of the row and there is a shared lawned garden and a drying area for each at the rear. There is ample parking space for one car per property.

SHARED FEATURES: Laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stay - The Accommodation...

End of terrace and the larger of the three cottages, Thumbelina benefits from a more spacious living area. The property is entered by a half glazed stable door opening to a charming beamed sitting room with lounge seating facing the decorative granite fireplace.

Beyond, a curtained doorway leads to a well-equipped fitted kitchen with an adjacent pine furnished dining area. A stable door from the kitchen leads to the parking area to one side and the shared rear garden.

Carpeted stairs lead up from the sitting room to a landing, a charming bedroom with a 5ft double bed and an adjacent shower room W.C. with hand basin and heated towel rail.

Don't forget...
