  • “Enjoyed the cottage and ...”
    Enjoyed the cottage and surroundings, were made very welcome by Jacky and Phil. Wished we could have stayed longer. There are lots of lovely places to visit in Cornwall. It would be lovely to go back sometime in the future.

The property

Helford 2.9 miles.

Located on the stunning Lizard Peninsula, close to the beautiful Helford River, this charming old eco-friendly cottage is set on a working farm in the rural hamlet of Mudgeon, 8 miles from Helston and Cornwall's number one children’s attraction, the Flambards Theme Park.

Mudgeon Cottage is ideal for families who want to get back to nature and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and farmyard life.

As you drive along the country lanes towards the cottage for the first time you will appreciate the tranquillity and outstanding natural beauty for which the Lizard Peninsula is justly famous.

The farm dog will welcome you as you arrive and make your way to the cottage which occupies the wing of the main manor house offering spacious family accommodation oozing character throughout.

The sitting room with its beams and woodburner offers total relaxation and comfort whatever time of the year.

There are four bedrooms here, all on the first floor offering a choice of sleeping arrangements to suit all with a four poster double, a double with en suite facilities, a twin and a children’s bunk bedroom.

The family bathroom on the first floor along with the kitchen with dining and utility areas on the ground floor complete the accommodation.

Children will love spending time outside, exploring and enjoying adventures then watching the cows being milked from the viewing gallery and games room complete with pool and table tennis tables along with numerous ball games.

The extensive play area complete with slides, swings, bridge and tree house will prove a big attraction too.

There is a delightful private nature trail to Helford River's breath taking Tremayne Quay and Helford Village and Frenchman's Creek are a short walk away.

Many tranquil coves on England's most Southerly Peninsula will be great to explore meaning there is plenty to do and a holiday here will always be special.

About the location


Helston 10 miles; Lizard 11 miles; Redruth 17 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.

Helford is a picturesque village on the south side of the Helford River. Helford is very popular with its thatched cottages, excellent village stores and especially The Shipwrights Arms, right on the edge of the creek with its waterside terrace. Just a short walk away is Frenchman’s Creek, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier. The Helford River Sailing Club is very popular and a regatta is held every August. In the summer a passenger ferry runs to Helford passage, the home of the Ferryboat Inn, and nearby to the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. The wildlife on the Helford River is diverse and a birdwatcher’s paradise.
