Less than a 10 minute drive from the golden sandy beach at Praa Sandsand just under 5 miles from the picturesque fishing harbour of Porthleven, Banana Pancakes is ideally situated for exploring West Cornwall, midway between Helston and Penzance.

This freshly renovated, detached and double glazed small garden studio, offers a peaceful haven for couples set within the grounds of the owners home surrounded by unspoilt countryside and peaceful rolling hills. Entered from the shared driveway where there is visitor parking for one car, a gravel footpath leads to the rear garden where a sunken patio area catches the morning sun and French Windows open to the single storey property.

The self contained accommodation in a light crisp decor consists of a general open-plan living room with a reclaimed pine floor and a skylight window allowing visitors to watch the stars at night. There is a neatly fitted galley kitchen with a ceramic two ring hob, Belfast sink and oak worktop, a small occasional table with dining chairs, two casual lounge chairs and a standard double Victorian brass bed.

At the rear, a door opens to a fully tiled, separate shower room W.C. with hand basin, heated towel rail and electric underfloor heating. Four granite steps lead up from the patio to a sheltered lawn exclusively for the visitors use with a garden hammock, mature shrub borders and views of the southern slopes of the NT's Godolphin Hill. The owners can arrange for fresh lobster to be delivered from local fishermen.

There are traditional village pubs in Godolphin Cross 1 mile, and Ashton 2 miles, and a good selection of amenities in the market town of Helston 6 miles away. Praa Sands, 2.5 miles, has a local shop, a beachside bar and restaurant and golden sands popular with surfers; there are also five other stunning beaches within a 15 minute drive.

Footpaths lead to Godolphin Hill & Tregonning Hill offering panoramic views of West Cornwall and there are also lovely coastal walks nearby to the famous Prussia Cove and the rocky NT headlands of Cudden Point and Rinsey Head. Godolphin House and garden set within an historic estate is just a 5 minute drive or a short stroll on foot across the hill.

There is a golf course close by, and the seaside resorts of Penzance and St Ives are within a half hour car journey. There are numerous attractions within easy reach including St Michaels Mount, Lands EndFlambards and the National Seal Sanctuary to name but a few.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
