  • "Fantastic setting."

    Scones and fresh flowers on arrival was a lovely touch. Everything was as described. Well equipped kitchen too. The only improvement would be a coat hook in the kitchen but not vital and didn’t spoil our stay. Thank you

  • "Lovely peaceful picturesque location."

  • "Another great stay at Manor Cottage."

    We love the peaceful location here and the cottage is well equipped and comfortable. Pus the enclosed garden for the dog is ideal. It is a working farm so expect cockerels crowing and the odd early morning tractor movement, but that doesn’t bother us at all. Owners really friendly (but not intrusive) and the cream tea on arrival was much appreciated. We had a few wet days this time and a clothes airer would have been really handy to hang wet weather gear on for drying.

  • "If I could bottle this experience for the hosts, the location, the setting and the accommodation we would be millionaires."

    We had a fantastic perfect fortnight with Bridget and all the animals being so very friendly and the cottage was simply outstanding. I would recommend this property as a first class holiday all round. Well done to all concerned, my family and I miss it already

  • "Had a wonderful stay in a comfy, cosy, spotless cottage in the countryside surrounded by fields on a working farm but not far from the village of Gweek and town of Helston."

    Our host Bridget was very friendly and helpful and the flowers and cream tea on arrival were a thoughtful welcome. Loved the wood burning stove of an evening and wifi available to plan our day trips and book tickets. An ideal location to explore both the Lizard and Land's End peninsulars. Highly recommend.

  • "The cottage was spotless and beds very comfortable ."

    A chair in each bedroom for clothes would be nice and another single chair in the lounge area. The kitchen was lovely and bright. A slightly larger table would be good. A small dishwasher would be a great addition. The garden and parking area well maintained.

  • "The directions Sykes provided for Manor Cottage are very scant and don't make sense - there was a sentence we didn't understand at all, so we wasted a lot of time trying to find it and eventually had to ask in the Gweek shop."

    We couldn't find the password for the rooter and had to ask where it was. The file about information on Manor Cottage was very scant and could have been more comprehensive. In fact it was a few forms with boxes provided by Cornish Cottage Holidays some of which had been filled in. A bit of background and history to the farm might have been very interesting, for instance. Having done B and B myself for many years I think they let themselves down on lack of background. Everything in the cottage was of such high quality (Sabatier knives for instance) but no small kitchen knives which when asked for was produced immediately. It is such a wonderful cottage and the owner is delightful, however, and so willing to help. (Too much to publish here I think.)

  • "Manor Cottage was a delight, well maintained, clean and well equipped."

    Safe enclosed garden for our dog, lovely surroundings, friendly helpful neighbours and lovely walks around the farm and adjacent countryside. Ideal location for visiting Cornwall's attractions. Good weather always makes a difference and we were lucky to have a good week. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "WiFi is available & very important to people who is doing work while in a holiday."

    A big plus for this accomodation. The owner my think to improve the bedding in the master bedroom & second bedroom. However overall It’s a welcoming accomodation & comfortable.

    Loved hearing the donkeys, chickens and goose. Bridget and family were very welcoming and friendly and Robbie enjoyed making friends with the dogs and his morning walks straight from the farm. We hope to return. Rachel

  • "A lovely property, perfect for our family holiday."

    Quiet location with enclosed garden - great for our dog. Good central location to explore south Cornwall. All the facilities you needed and a comfortable place to relax. Bridget was lovely and always around to ask if anything was needed. Our children loved the farm, watching the chicken and goose wander around. Scones with cream and jam on arrival and milk in the fridge was a great surprise! Hope to be back again very soon.

  • "The cottage was very clean and bright and comfortable."

    Being on a working farm was great to see and hear the animals, the bullocks, the geese and the roosters. It was lovely for our dog having an enclosed garden to run around in and see the host’s dogs. We had everything we needed for the kitchen, but we were unable to find a corkscrew for opening a bottle of wine. There was a lack of hooks to hang up outside coats, We ended up hanging our outside coats on the back of the kitchen table chairs.

  • "Home from home accommodation, cream tea on arrival, milk in the fridge all greatly appreciated."

    Very clean and comfortable good quality utensils, crockery, cutlery, tableware etc. very thoughtfully put together. Beds and bedding, towels etc. spotless and good quality. Comfy sunny lounge. All wood flooring very suitable for those with four legged friends. Sunrises with cockerels crowing idyllic. Close enough to amenities with the feeling of being in the depths of the country.

The property

Gweek 1.2 miles.

This delightful, detached barn conversion of Manor Cottage rests on a farm in Gweek near Helston, Cornwall.

Enjoying countryside views and ground-floor living, Manor Cottage is a superb retreat for a family of four wanting to explore the Lizard Peninsula.

Upon arrival, leave your vehicle in one of the two off-road spaces and marvel at those idyllic, rural views.

Make your way inside the property and settle down in the sitting room, a space featuring ample seating for all the family in front of the TV with Freeview.

Pass through the lovely abode to the kitchen/diner, a charming area that hosts everything a foodie needs to make indulgent meals for all to enjoy, along with a convenient washing machine.

Meals can be enjoyed quickly at the breakfast bar before venturing out, or as a group meal at the dining table as you catch up on the day's events.

The family bathroom is nearby and generously offers both a bath and walk-in shower for you to freshen up in.

After a long day, relish a well-earned rest in one of two tastefully furnished bedrooms, including a king-size and twin.

The rear garden is enclosed, so your furry friend can stretch their legs, whilst you dine alfresco or simply soak up those delightful views with a morning coffee in hand.

The pleasant village of Gweek isn't far and provides you with a post office and convenience store and a traditional pub, along with access to walks along the Helford River with its creeks and the wonderful Cornish Seal Sanctuary.

Helston is also just moments away, a picture-postcard town that is home to the fascinating Museum of Cornish Life, along with Flambard's Theme Park, a great attraction for kids of all ages; the town is also home to some lovely walks for you and a canine companion, including Penrose walk and trails around the lake in Coronation Park.

Porthleven lies a little further afield and provides coastal fun for all the family, with its idyllic harbour, lengthy beach, restaurants and the marvellous National Trust property of Penrose.

Be sure to embark on the South Western Coastal Path to discover ample, stunning coves surrounding the peninsula, where an abundance of fun in the sun and sand is waiting to be had.

Enjoy a well-deserved staycation at the fabulous Manor Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


Helston 2.6 miles; Porthleven 6.2 miles; Falmouth 9.4 miles.

The civil parish and village of Gweek rests on the head of the Helford River, on the edge of the Lizard Heritage Coast in Cornwall. Resting moments away from the scenic walks and beaches of the Lizard peninsula, whilst also being close to the bustling towns of Helston, Porthleven and Falmouth, Gweek is a relaxing base for a staycation. Offering visitors sumptuous meals at the traditional pub and B&B of The Black Swan, whilst also offering a post office & convenience store, Gweek is well-equipped for a self-catered break. Gweek additionally enjoys access to the marvellous Cornish Seal Sanctuary, where visitors can tour the rescue centre and even spot an array of penguins, ponies, otters and goats! Avid walkers can enjoy hiking west along the river to the scenic point of Tremayne Quay, a place that is also ideal for any canine companions! Keep the kids entertained at Helston's fantastic Flambards Theme Park or board the heritage railway and experience the thrill of running through the mixture of the region's country and coastal scenery. Porthleven not only offers a stunning beach, but is bound to keep the history buffs of the group entertained with the nearby National Trust property of Penrose, a manor house with dog-walking opportunities, an on-site café and a stunning, adjacent lake of The Loe. With Helford Passage, Constantine and Maenporth resting a stone's throw away, Gweek truly enjoys an idyllic position that is perfect for any Cornwall adventure!
