Experience - The Area...

Within five miles of the Maritime town of Falmouth this detached self-contained wooden cabin sits snugly in a tranquil verdant valley less than a mile from the picturesque Helford village of Durgan. Set within the grounds of the owner's home, a gentle stream descends through the gardens to the shores of the Helford River.

The Cabin is located just on the outskirts of the pretty village of Mawnan Smith where local store and traditional thatched roof pub can be found. The waterside Helford hamlet of Durgan is within walking distance. The famous gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah are within a miles walk or short drive with exotic plants and extensive grounds leading down to the Helford River.

The popular visitor destination of Falmouth with the world renowned National Maritime Museum is just over 5 miles away. Cornwall's County City of Truro with its striking Cathedral and array of high street and local shops and cafes is well worth a visit and is only half an hours drive.

Stay - The Accommodation...

The property is approached via a shared gravel driveway with parking to the front of the property on a sloped, deep gravel surface. Seven concreted steps with handrails take you down to the Cabin with one small step up into the property.

This fully insulated and double-glazed cabin has wall mounted electric panel heaters providing enough warmth all year round and dual aspect windows dressed with wooden Venetian blinds provide ample natural light and ventilation.

Once inside, the open plan accommodation is all on one level with pine clad throughout and attractive pine flooring. The property is comfortably furnished with easy seating and dining provision for two guests and the kitchen provides a pleasant space in which to prepare meals with an extensive on site inventory available. A feature pine double bed with ample wardrobe and drawer space provided with a separate shower room W.C with basin completing the internal layout.

Set in a sunny South facing position with grassy areas for sunbathing and gravelled terrace with garden furniture and attractive Cornish stone and brick barbecue. Owners are happy to accommodate boats and trailers within the grounds of the property by prior arrangement.

The grounds surrounding the Cabin are not fully enclosed so pets will need to be supervised when outside.

Don't forget...

- The garden is partially enclosed so supervision of pets within the grounds will be necessary.
- No cot but carrycots welcome.
- This property welcomes 2 dogs.
- A laundry service is available on request

A return visit for us. We and our 2 dogs love the Cabin; it is in a perfect location to access some really super walks. Even in the height of summer it is still a quiet place to be - perfect. - Ms K Skeplorn
"Great location and base for walking the South West Coast path around Falmouth and Helford. Mawnan Smith and Helford Passage have lovely pubs with good food and drinks. Stunning scenery in and around Mylor Bridge, Helford Passage and Gillans creek. " Mrs C Morrell
"Great location,lovely private secluded plot , very peaceful in very close proximity to beaches and coastal walks, will definitely return again " Mr S Costello
"A hidden gem with all the peace and quiet of the countryside yet within easy reach of beaches and Falmouth town. Perfect for getting away from it all, we could easily have stayed for another week. Everything you needed was provided. even a bottle of wine and milk in the fridge. Cleanliness was spot on and all the cleaning products to maintain the Covid friendly environment were provided Henry the host was friendly and helpful and provided excellent local knowledge. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to friends and we hope to return." Miss H Burden
""Idyllic retreat, yet close enough to walk to nearby gardens, beaches and pubs. Highly recommend."" Ms L May
"Another excellent week at the cabin ( our forth). Perfect location, everything you need for a relaxing holiday." Ms K Skeplorn
