  • "Absolutely beautiful property and in a great location to explore the local area."

    The cottage was home from home. The owners Tim and Lynne were there to greet us when we arrived and to show us around. There was a great welcome basket and we were truly spoilt. The kitchen was really well equipped and had everything that you could possibly need. There was a lot of attention to detail. I think this property is very understated with its bio and although I have previously said I would never stay anywhere twice I would definitely make the exception here, the best cottage we have stayed in yet. The garden was beautiful somewhere to sit on the evenings. Well done Tim and Lynne you have an amazing little gem here.

    Thank you for your kind words and we are happy that you enjoyed your holiday here in Cornwall.. We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week in The Nest."

    The property is very homely and Tim and Lynne could not have done more to make us feel welcome. We were lucky with the weather so we’re able to utilise the garden which is a proper sun trap. Whilst we visited the local tourist areas: St Ives, Lizard Point, Falmouth, Penzance, Portleven, etc., the house was comfortable and sufficiently equipped for us never to have left it during our stay. We have already enquired when we can return during 2023.

    Couldn't have asked for a more relaxed break, and we will definitely be returning in the future if we can, couldn't imagine a nicer place to stay.

    Thanks so much for your feedback.mIt is nice to know that you had a relaxing stay and enjoyed yourselves in Cornwall! We look forward to welcoming you both back soon. Property Owner

The property

Mawgan 1.2 miles.Tucked away in the quaint village of Garras near Mawgan in Cornwall, is this delightful two-bedroom, semi-detached cottage resting next to the owner’s home, The Nest.

Enjoying a wonderful location with easy access to the popular destinations of Helston and Falmouth, The Nest makes for a wonderful dwelling for couples or a family of four who are looking for the perfect blend of coast and country in Cornwall.

Park-up in the off-road parking space, before unloading your bags and making your way towards your new home-from-home.

Step into the property where you are immediately greeted by a well-appointed shower room, perfect for washing off sandy toes after a day at the beach.

Continue through where you will find a fully-equipped kitchen where you can rustle up family favourites with the help of the electric double oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, as well as a handy slimline dishwasher for those fuss-free clean-ups!

Savour a delicious meal at the dining table for six or take advantage of warmer weather and dine alfresco out in the rear enclosed garden.

As the evening cools, retreat to the sitting room to light the electric fire and snuggle up on the plush sofas as you watch your favourite show play out on the Smart TV.

When sleep calls, climb the stairs to the first floor, where you will find two tastefully decorated double bedrooms, both served by a generous bathroom where you can indulge in a blissful soak in the bath or refreshing rinse in the shower ahead of a day of adventure.

Explore your local surroundings, where keen anglers will be well-catered for with the nearby, well-stocked Garras Lakes where you can seek out your catch of the day.

The 1000-acre grounds of Trelawarren Estate provide an idyllic spot for a stroll, whilst the on-site restaurant is the perfect pit-stop to refuel.

For a wider selection of amenities, take the short drive over to Mawgan, where you can treat your loved ones to a tasty meal at the welcoming Ship Inn or stock up on any essentials at the well-stocked convenience store.

The bustling town of Helston is easily accessible, where you can wander the fascinating exhibits at the Museum of Cornish Life, enjoy the thrills at the Flambards Theme Park and peruse the plethora of pubs, shops and restaurants on offer.

For a day at the beach, head to Porthleven where you can spend a day bathing on the golden sands, building sandcastles with the little ones or paddling the shores.

There is also the picturesque harbour where you can watch the world go by as you tuck-in to fresh fish and chips with a stop at Rick Steins, or add a touch of elegance to your stay with your choice of Michelin Starred restaurants.
