  • "Nice cottage and parking was never an issue as we were always close to the gate."

    Close to the main road.

  • "My friend and I ( single women) had a great experience during our one week stay in September 2023."

    On arrival, a brighter nameplate on gate would be helpful as it took a while to find narrow gate entrance Addition of a foam bumper on edge of low headroom on stairs would be useful, because despite warnings in the written instructions, I bumped my head several times! TV signal was variable. We were not sure if aerial connection to back of TV was problem or if just in a poor signal area. Also, I was unable to make/receive phonecalls to friend in nearby village from cottage. Overall, Post Box Cottage provided a comfortable and secluded holiday home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in beautiful Cornwall. Thank you.

  • "A couple of minor issues."

    Lock on front door almost impossible to use. We bought a pizza and garlic bread but could not use the oven as the knob on the left would not operate correctly. Also bit of shame about damage to the wood veneer around the sink. Great cottage nice and quiet. Location was very central for a lot of places.

The property

Helston 4.8 miles.

Nestled in the Cornish countryside in the quaint village of Godolphin Cross near Helston is Post Box Cottage.

This charming, white-washed, stone cottage benefits from a fantastic location near the coast, an enclosed, rear garden where your beloved canine companion can roam freely and two well-appointed bedrooms, perfect for couples, small families or friends looking to explore the wonders of Cornwall.

Cross the threshold and head straight to the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to rustle up a hearty meal for the whole family that can be enjoyed around the table; if the sun is shining, step outside to dine alfresco whilst your pooch lays at your feet.

Raise a toast to your getaway and when the sky darkens head inside and up to the sleek bathroom where you can wash away the day’s adventure before catching up on some much-needed sleep in either double bedroom.

During the day, explore your surroundings; venture to the National Trust site of Godolphin where you can traverse the gardens and the breath-taking house and estate; be sure to work your way up to Godolphin Hilltop for panoramic views across the Cornish countryside.

On sunny days, pack up your beach essentials head for Praa Sand where you can amble along the golden shores of Hendra Beach with your pup while watching the kids splash around in the sea, and be sure to treat the family to a seaside necessity, fish and chips!

Or follow the coast in the other direction to Marazion where you explore the iconic St Michael’s Mount home to the stunning medieval castle, the truly unique sub-tropical gardens and The Giant’s Well.

Experience all of this and more at Post Box Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
