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.

Entered from the courtyard where there is parking for two cars, the property is fronted by a small patio garden with a path and one step leading up to the wide front doorway which opens to an entrance lobby. An inner glazed door opens into a carpeted hallway leading to a cloakroom W.C. with hand basin and a modern style kitchen with smart fitted units. At the far end of the hall, a door opens to a delightful living room with a dining area on the lower level and two steps leading up through a wide archway to the adjoining sitting room with a comfortable three-piece suite and windows overlooking the courtyard.

A carpeted staircase winds up from the hall to the first floor landing where there are a bathroom W.C. with wash basin and corner bath with hand shower attachment and three pleasant bedrooms with views of the manor house, courtyard and grounds. There is a master bedroom with a cast iron 5-foot bed and an en-suite shower room W.C. with hand basin and two further bedrooms, each with zip-linked twin beds which can be joined to create a 6ft double. There are wall mounted electric convector heaters in all bedrooms.

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.

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.

If you are eligible for the Loyalty Discount your final balance payment will be reduced accordingly after your booking has been submitted. The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.

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.
