  • "Amazing property within a 5 minute walk to a beautiful quiet beach."

    A second fridge and lots of glasses have now been provided. We hired kayaks locally that were reasonably priced , delivered and collected from the beach. Perfect for a ‘get away from it all’ holiday

  • "We had a great holiday as a family of 8, including 3 children."

    The location and the nearby coves were great. We hired a rowing boat and canoe from St Anthony Sailaway, which was also great. However, we paid a significant amount for the house and some of the facilities were not up to standard; part of the frustration with this, is they are all easy to fix. The majority of visitors are making similar comments to this in the visitors' book. This is just no good enough and you really need to get this property up to standard. 1. The fridge freezer is nowhere near big enough for a house sleeping 8 people - just get a bigger one and a separate freezer downstairs. 2. It sleeps 8 and there are only 6 tumblers! 3. No beer glasses 4. No childrens cups, plates and kfs. A property sleeping 8 will almost always be taken by families!! 5. One window in the middle bedroom has no curtain!! 6. The bath towels are too small. 7. As this is a beach holiday cottage, it needs an outdoor tap in the paved area alongside the drive so sandy children and adults off the beach can wash down. 8. The outdoor hanging area next door to the drive is nowhere near big enough for 8 people's swimming stuff and wetsuits; and by this I mean the washline and the cover above it to keep the rain off the drying clothes. Add some hooks to hang wetsuit hangers from. You are welcome to publish this feedback - but I do understand if you don't ... just fix it!

    Thank you for your feedback which we always welcome. We are installing an additional larder fridge as well as providing black out blinds and replacing missing glasses. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed the location and nearby coves. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in stunning location."

    ...lovely picturesque walks , but if you are looking for pubs and restaurants to walk to Dovefields probably isn't for you. It is very peaceful with wonderful places to drive to ...... one very small gripe ....cottage could do with a bigger fridge or an additional fridge for a large party staying for a week...sorry

  • "The house, Dovefields, is beautiful."

    Plenty of space for eight people and lots of privacy due to the layout of the bedrooms .A five minute walk to Flushing cove. which is mainly shingle with a little sand in one corner. The sea is calm and warm due to being at the mouth of the creek. You can hire kayaks and paddleboards locally to be delivered to the beach. We managed to park five cars with ease. Very narrow lanes lead to the property, and there are no shops within walking distance. Only negative is that the fridge is rather small for fresh food for eight for a week.

    Thank you for your feedback which we always welcome. We have now installed an additional larder fridge Property Owner

The property

Helford 3.1 miles.

Perched in a tranquil setting in Flushing Cove, just a short stroll away from the beautiful cliffs of the South West Coastal Path, is this picture-perfect holiday home, Dovefields.

Renovated to a high standard throughout, this charming three-storey dwelling provides a fantastic base for a family or group of eight, no matter the occasion!

Step inside this wonderful abode and be greeted by a bright and contemporary kitchen with attractive gloss cabinets and beautiful wood worktops that host an abundance of handy electrical appliances, perfect for cooking up a storm.

Gather with loved ones at the sociable dining table for many mouth-watering meals, or fling open the patio doors and choose to dine alfresco out on the side decking, admiring views of the sea whilst sipping on a refreshing glass of wine.

Retreat back indoors to the warm and restful sitting room, adorned with quirky fabric furnishings and a sleek flat-screen TV, where you can relax and unwind at the end of your evenings whilst chatting amongst friends.

As you begin to feel yourself tire, whisk yourself off to the ground-floor king-size which can be transformed into a twin on request, or take the staircase down to the lower ground floor and discover two additional bedrooms including a king-size and an unusual twin room, ideal for tucking up the kids.

Completing the bedrooms is an arresting king-size with private balcony on the first floor, a fabulous spot to embrace your surroundings as you enjoy a moment of peace and quiet with your favourite book.

Three sophisticated bathrooms can be found serving the bedrooms, comprised of both a lower-ground-floor and ground-floor shower room, as well as a sophisticated bathroom with a striking roll top bath and separate walk-in shower.

Kick-start your days with a warm cup of coffee out in the rear garden, before heading out on an awe-inspiring hike along the South West Coastal Path to Parbean Cove and Nare Point Watch Station.

Soak up the sunshine on Bosahan Cove, or venture inland to Gweek where you can meet friendly seals at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

Wander the glorious subtropical landscapes of Trebah Garden and the National Trust owned Glendurgan Garden, or admire the magnificent seascapes from the shores of Grebe Beach.

Visit the town of Falmouth, home to Pendennis Castle, Queen Mary Gardens and the National Maritime Museum, or head down to the Lizard Heritage Coast to see the National Trust owned Lizard Rangers, Cadgwith Harbour and Housel Bay Beach, a must-see during your stay.

Continue along to Lizard Point and Kynance Cove, or spend the day at Flambards Theme Park, a real hit with all ages!

Meet exotic creatures at Paradise Park and JungleBarn Cornwall or travel to Land's End Landmark, just a pleasant drive away.

Closer to home, explore the neighbouring village of Helford, and the footpaths around Frenchman's Creek, taking in the glorious waterside pub, The Shipwright's Arms, or pick up a snack from the village shop.

Visit Helford Creek or take a boat out to sea with a scenic tour of the waters.

If you are feeling energetic, arrange boat, canoe or paddleboard hire with Sailaway at St Anthony's just across Gillan Creek, before returning to your home-away-from home ahead of a quiet evening indoors.

Spend precious time with your loved ones on an escape to Dovefields.
