    “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 ...

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.

About the location

HELFORD

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 popular for its beautiful setting, thatched cottages, and popular village inn, The Shipwrights Arms, set 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.
