A short walk from the NT beauty spot of Mullion Cove and close to adjacent sandy coves, this lovely stone Cornish holiday cottage stands peacefully in a sunny sheltered garden. The garden features a revolving cedar wood summerhouse (an ideal hide for bird-watchers), which is set between a lily pond and stream and there is an octagonal gazebo cum brick barbecue area. A cosy property with full central heating and gas stove. Wrapped up for the night in the summerhouse, sensible older children will be enthralled to watch badgers and foxes spending long hours digging for worms in the grass.
Located on the Lizard Peninsula, Mullion is Cornwall’s biggest village and is situated just a mile from the coast, where Mullion Cove lies with its unusual rock sculptures and small beach. Marking the spot where the first transatlantic radio transmission was made in 1901, the Marconi Monument can be seen at the cliff’s edge. Nearby Kynance Cove (the peninsula’s best known beach) is characterised by impressive cliffs, offshore islands and displays stacks and arches of serpentine rock. With surfers, the beaches at Polurrian and Poldhu prove popular, whilst sandy beaches can be found at Church and Dollar coves. Five miles north of the cottage is the stannary town of Helston, where tin ore was once extracted and sent to the port at Porthleven. Held each May, the well-known Floral Dance is performed here – men in top hats and women in summer dresses taking to the streets to re-enact a somewhat strange dance, which lasts for the greater part of the day. Younger family members will enjoy the theme park also found there, and the network of quiet country lanes connecting the inland villages with those on the coast provide a good way to explore the area, with cycle hire available at Helston. Just over half an hour’s drive away are Truro, Penzance, Falmouth, Redruth and St Ives. Golf, riding and pleasant coastal walks all found locally. Shops 400 yards, pub close by.

Spacious dining hall with rug on parquet floor and gas stove. Living room with rug on parquet floor and picture window overlooking garden. Study/TV room. Large fitted kitchen with breakfast bar and separate dining area. Cloakroom with toilet. Open-tread stairs to first floor: Two twin bedrooms; one with large en-suite shower room (double cubicle), vanity unit and toilet. Double bedroom. Bunk bedroom.

Trerhose Ref: GWV

Within 2 miles of three sandy beaches and commanding magnificent coastal and country views from its elevated position , this spacious, very comfortable and well-equipped detached house is tucked away peacefully along a track. Set in its own private 1½ acres of grounds and garden, a haven for wildlife, it is only a 10-minute walk down to the enchanting harbour of Mullion Cove, now in the care of the National Trust. A natural tunnel through the greenstone rock leads at low tide to a little sandy beach. There are glorious cliff walks leading to a further series of sandy beaches, or southwards through part of the Lizard National Nature Reserve, where a wide range of heathland and cliff-top plants may be seen, and sea-birds include kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills and shags. The clear water offshore attracts divers, and surfboards are for hire in several coves.
Mullion (1 mile) is one of the largest villages on the Lizard Peninsula, with shops, banks, several inns and restaurants, and a golf course; at nearby Angrouse several ancient barrows have been opened to disclose prehistoric artefacts, now on display in the Truro Museum. Five miles away is the National Trust’s Penrose Estate, at the centre of which is a freshwater lake more than a mile long, and miles of paths wind through delightful woodland. The market town of Helston (10 miles) has good facilities for visitors, including tennis courts, putting and bowling greens, cinema, swimming-pool and famous Blue Anchor pub, which brews its own beer. Nature lovers will find a great deal of interest in this area. On the eastern side of the peninsula, around the estuary of the Helford River, there are some beautiful gardens to visit. Glendurgan Gardens (NT) has a magnificent collection of rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias, as well as tree ferns and bananas which flourish in the wonderfully mild climate of this region. At nearby Gweek is the National Seal Sanctuary which cares for rescued seals. Within easy reach is Penzance, with regular trips to the Isles of Scilly, and charming St Ives.
