  • "The property is picture perfect and the garden amazing ."

    The welcome pack of cream tea ,biscuits and milk was much appreciated. You need to take everything with you food wise though , even basics like salt and pepper, as none are provided. There are plenty of cleaning products but you do need to take tea towels. The internal of the property is disappointing as it is very tired and desperately needs updating. The property was clean and the towels were soft and sumptuous. The bedding was a little worn but clean. The bed is quite small , only a double, there is plenty of room for a king, which would be a nice addition. The furniture throughout the property is basic, though the sofas very comfy. The old bath is unusable as the enamel coating has flaked off in areas , which leaves it unhygienic. The attached shower head leaks terribly which affects the power of the water , so a shower is slow and tedious, there was plenty of hot water. The kitchen cabinets are very dated and worn there was a lot of water damage around the sink area.and it was impossible to remove the damp smell from the kitchen. The log burner was not usable and was declared as dangerous, the room heaters were very old but worked and were needed in the evenings , as though there was plenty of sunshine the easterly wind was very cold. We did have a fab holiday, and enjoyed the 2 beaches, which are very close to the property, we also enjoyed the local coastal walks .

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, your comments are important to us. We're pleased to hear that you had a great holiday at Flushing Meadow, it's a lovely property. You'll be pleased to hear that the new owner is currently in the process of having a brand new kitchen, bathroom and shower room fitted, as well as a number of other enhancements. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. - Cornish Cottage Holidays Property Owner

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 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.
