Col Ros Ref: GB2

Commanding a peaceful and idyllic cliff-top position with panoramic sea views, this spacious and well-equipped house stands in its own large gardens. Set at the end of a 1/2-mile unmade lane, it enjoys views over the Atlantic and across Mounts Bay towards Penzance, and footpaths lead from just outside the garden gate down to Polurrian Cove , a quiet and secluded haven with good surfing. Other coves are just a short walk along a dramatic cliff-top – Mullion, with its granite-walled harbour and Poldhu, scene of Marconi’s first transatlantic cable message.
Col Ros is ideally situated for exploring the west of the county, with the Lizard Peninsula, Penzance, Falmouth and Truro all within easy access. The Lizard (5 miles), with its craggy cliff scenery to the west and wooded vales to the east, is a mecca for walkers, surfers and divers. Penzance (21 miles) is an ideal centre for touring Land’s End and boasts the National Lighthouse Centre and Cornwall’s only promenade. More local attractions include the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, famous for its air-sea rescue helicopters, and Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, 4 miles inland. Helston (6 miles) is an ancient market town built on two hills. In early May each year there is the world-famous festival, ‘Flora Day’, with its colourful ‘Furry Dance’, in which long lines of people with hands joined make their way through the flower-lined streets. Helston has Flambards theme park, with a reconstructed Victorian village, ‘Britain In The Blitz’ street with wartime aircraft, rollercoaster rides, award-winning gardens and adventure playgrounds. Mullion has pubs serving food, or a short drive of 6 miles leads to Halzephron Cliff with its inn above Gunwalloe Church Cove – a 500-year-old smugglers’ haunt with lovely views, and recommended by the Good Pub Guide and Egon Ronay Guide. Shop ¾ mile.

Minster Fields boasts many features including polished wood floors, a modern fitted kitchen and an open fire, as well as home comforts such as satellite TV.
Manaccan is one of the prettiest villages in South Cornwall enjoying clusters of colour washed houses, all at different levels and bordering the local church with lanes leading down to the picturesque Helford River.

The village of Helford, with its pretty thatched cottages and local inns situated on the Helford River, is approximately one mile.

Boats can be hired at nearby St Anthony where moorings, launching of boats and boat trailer storage can be arranged.
Further afield, The Lizard Peninsula can be explored, with its sandy coves and coastal walks, or explore the North Helford Passage with its amazing tropical gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah, which can be reached by ferry from Helford village.

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. Land’s End can be reached in an hour or so. Gliding is available locally. Shops 1 mile.
