Located in one of the prettiest parts of the County on the edge of Gweek village and within a short drive of The Lizard and Coverack is a super property called Helford Hideaway.  Forming part of the original Tolvan Farmhouse, Helford Hideaway has been lovingly and sympathetically refurbished providing a comfortable and cosy holiday base for two people. Once you have tired from exploring the surrounding fields and bluebell woodlands belonging to this working farm, the nearby village of Gweek (home to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary) has a well-stocked post office village store, popular pub serving food all day which hosts various events throughout the year and recently reopened Cornish tearooms located down in the boatyard.  Boat lovers will be delighted to learn that one of Daphne du Maurier's favourite Cornish spots (her honeymoon destination in fact), the Helford River is less than a 20 minute drive away. Within 10 miles of Gweek are two must see iconic Cornish locations - Coverack and The Lizard. The bustling town of Helston with supermarkets and high street is a ten minute drive.  The maritime town of Falmouth is just 12 miles from Gweek with a generous selection of quality restaurants and eateries to choose between as well as antique shops, art galleries and museums to browse around. The lovely beaches at Porthleven (sand) and Porthallow (shingle) are an 8 and 10 mile drive respectively.

Entered from the gravel driveway at the rear, the small entrance lobby provides hooks for coats and floor space for wellies!  The open plan kitchen with television, easy seating and dining for two has been thoughtfully arranged and beautifully presented. Stylish wood effect laminate flooring provides a practical covering for your four legged friends as well as warmth underfoot.

Up the narrow twist and turn Cornish staircase is the spacious double bedroom with lovely views over the neighbouring countryside. The bedroom has ample hanging and drawer space with room for a cot if you need to bring one. A wall mounted television with integral DVD is also provided within the bedroom. The shower WC ensuite has a generous size cubicle with dual shower option comprising of fixed rain head shower and separate hand held attachment for added convenience. A heated towel rail provides heating in this area.

The property is heated via a combination of electric wall mounted heating and oil fired central heating (to bedroom).

The enclosed garden to the front has furniture for you to use and enjoy. There is private parking to the rear of the property on a gravel surface for up to two cars.

Being based on a working farm most definitely has its benefits as owners are more than happy for you and your dogs to explore the 20+ acres of bluebell woodland, streams and secluded fields right on your doorstep!

Please note;

This property welcomes 2 small or medium sized dogs

During the 2018 season there will be some refurbishment of other barns taking place. Owners wish to assure you that noise levels and visual disturbance will be kept to a minimum during your stay.

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.
