Only a short drive from the picturesque harbour villages at MullionPorthleven this detached cottage in its own private walled garden set on a fourteen acre smallholding with Llamas, Alpacas, Goats, Hens, Ducks and Geese grazing the neighbouring fields. Goosecott is a perfect base to explore the many beautiful beaches and coves on the Lizard peninsula and it is a perfect location for country lovers being close to Gweek at the head of the Helford River.

Approached down a pretty tarmac private drive and adjacent to the owners property, known locally as the colonial cottage is Goosecott, a detached farm cottage built on sloping ground with parking for 2 cars. A gate and seven steps lead to the front door opening into the entrance porch with a partial countryside views. An inner door leads directly into a rustic kitchen / breakfast Room having a neatly fitted kitchen to one side and a farmhouse table and chairs to the other.

Leading from the kitchen down a passageway there is a downstairs bathroom W.C with hand basin and shower over the bath. Another door from the breakfast room opens into a comfortable snug with cedar panelled walls and a wood burning stove with two armchairs from here the French doors open into the conservatory spanning the width of the property with a terracotta tile floor, wooden garden dining table and chairs and door to the garden. To complete the ground floor accommodation an inner hall gives access to a pleasant sitting room, which looks out onto the enclosed garden, with two sofas arranged before a wall mounted electric fire.

A steep carpeted staircase, with nine treads, leads to a landing dividing to the left and right with two further steps to the double bedroom on the right and two steps to the left giving access to a dressing room with W.C and hand basin and a twin bedroom. The garden is overlooked from all three upstairs rooms.

A small enclosed courtyard to the front with a path gives access to the rear garden with a small patio area. From the patio a single step allows access to the small lawn with raised flower bed and a path and gate leading to the private drive. The garden is enclosed by a Cornish hedge and stone wall.

The old Stannary Market town of Helston offering a selection of shops, pubs and a supermarket is 1.5 miles. The larger centres of Truro, Penzance, St Ives and Falmouth all within a 30 minute drive. The harbour side village of Porthleven with its sandy beach is only 4.5 miles. Praa Sands with its mile long golden sandy surf beach and Mullion golf course are both within easy reach as are the the glorious gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan.

The viewing area for the RNAS Culdrose is 1 mile away and offers an excellent opportunity to watch the daily activity of the aircraft based at the station with Flambards Theme Park a 5 minute drive.

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.
