  • “In the details of Halvasso Cottage, it should explain that the second bedroom with two single beds is particularly small!”

    The two beds are against the wall on each side and space down the middle for you to access your bed is about 5/6 inches! Therefore only one can get into bed at a time! There is nothing in the details of the cottage to say that there is no wardrobe and no cupboards or drawers! The only hanging space is one hook on the back of the door. The room is also so small that you actually cannot shut the bedroom door as it cannot get past one of the beds. We had to share our friends wardrobe and ...

    The two beds are against the wall on each side and space down the middle for you to access your bed is about 5/6 inches! Therefore only one can get into bed at a time! There is nothing in the details of the cottage to say that there is no wardrobe and no cupboards or drawers! The only hanging space is one hook on the back of the door. The room is also so small that you actually cannot shut the bedroom door as it cannot get past one of the beds. We had to share our friends wardrobe and drawers in the main bedroom. Very difficult as we had to ask our friends if it was ok to come in and put our clothes away and, in the morning, to ask if it was ok to come in and get out our clothes in the morning. There is no room at all to leave clothes on the floor, not that we wanted to do that! Our shoes we left in a bag in the lounge to try and make life a little easier! I would suggest that the cottage is only suitable for a family with small children or just one couple. If a family has two children of age, say, 11 or over, it would be too small. As the access to the cottage is from the back where you park the car, the path down the garden to the back door is overgrown with lovely roses and flowers but, if it has been raining you either walk through the wet grass or brush past soaking wet roses and bushes to get to the door. It is a small thing but annoying if raining. We did mention it to the owners when returning the key but the gentleman said that his wife loved the beautiful bushes, roses etc. Access can be made at the front of the cottage but as the car is parked at the back, it makes more sense to use the back gate.The lounge and kitchen are absolutely fine, comfortable and clean, it is just the upstairs and maybe some garden maintenance would help! I hope this feedback is helpful to you and would appreciate your comments.

The property

Halvosso is one of four traditional quarryman’s terraced cottages situated in the tiny hamlet of Halvosso.

Peaceful and secluded, yet a mere mile to the main road to Falmouth.

This cottage has timeless charm, is decorated in a modern country style and enjoys first floor views over the countryside towards Falmouth Bay.

Scenic, rural walks can be enjoyed from the front door or head out for a walk along the coast paths.

The port of Falmouth is less than a 10 minute drive and as well as daily provisions, offers independent shops, restaurants, traditional inns, galleries and wonderful beaches.

Renovated to a high standard, by the owners that live across the lane, Halvosso offers a cleverly designed kitchen, a wonderful living room with enormous inglenook fireplace with welcoming wood burning stove and dining table.

Stairs to the first floor lead to the family bathroom (bath and shower over) and two well presented bedrooms, a well appointed double and small, snug twin.

A gorgeous well screened sun trap of a garden is to the rear of the property along with parking for one car.

The really ancient town of Penryn, now home to the Combined University of Cornwall, is 10 minutes away and if interested in architecture, is worth a visit - there are many ope ways with pretty cottages to view and a dinky town museum.

The hidden coves and fishing villages around the Lizard Peninsular will fascinate, and closer by, the stunning sub-tropical Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are a must.

Halvosso is a great choice of holiday home at any time of year and would suit a small family or group of friends wanting a peaceful relaxing holiday.

About the location

PENRYN

Falmouth 1 mile; Truro 9 miles.

One of the oldest market towns in Cornwall, the pretty port of Penryn boasts a wealth of historic architecture and harbour heritage with attractive granite buildings steeply sloping along the cobbled streets down to the sea. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town, along with a museum offering free entry, and the tranquil Enys Gardens on the outskirts of the town, providing a range of grounds and a peaceful haven. Further along the Penryn River, just one mile towards the sea you’ll find the famous seaport of Falmouth, with a host of things to keep you entertained including harbour-side pubs and eateries offering spectacular views, stunning Blue Flag beaches and a bustling town centre. Visit the National Maritime Museum for a taste of Cornwall’s sea-faring history, or the fine Tudor fortress of Pendennis Castle, superb set gazing out to sea. You don’t have to venture far from Penryn to discover Cornwall’s many sights, delights and stunning coastline, and this is the perfect character base from which to see it all.
