Experience - The Area...
Set within the extensive grounds of the renowned Lost Gardens of Heligan and just over a mile from the sea, The Clock House is part of the stable block belonging to the Manor House, forming one side of a cobbled courtyard in the private section of the estate. Furnished to a high standard yet retaining many of the 18th century period features with high ceilings, large sash windows and the original slate-hung clock tower restored to working order with the preserved weather vane.
It is a short walk to the entrance of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the largest garden restoration project in Europe with over 80 acres of gardens. The award winning Lobbs farm shop is also a short walk and the acclaimed Eden Project is about a 30 minute drive. The nearby villages of St Ewe and Pentewan, approx 1.5 miles respectively, have pubs offering food and the traditional fishing village of Mevagissey is just over 2 miles away with a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs and a seasonal ferry operating from the harbour to Fowey. Just beyond Mevagissey, the small cove of Portmellon has a shingly beach and the popular family beach at Gorran Haven with safe bathing is about a ten minute drive.
