  • Mr Cullen

    “This was our second holiday in Watershed, the first being two years ago.”

    This time we found the property looking really tired. We had issues with a filthy cutlery draw, dirty plates and a cupboard with a broken door. There were hairs in the bathroom that weren’t ours. really disappointed,

The property

Resting amidst the outstanding natural beauty of Flushing Cove on Gillan Creek is this marvellous cottage comprises 5 beautiful bedrooms for 10 people.

With far reaching, stunning views down to the Helford River and glistening waters of the cove, you will feel rather at peace within the mature woodland surround.

Step into this wonderful property and take in its charming character and neutral colour scheme, creating a very tranquil atmosphere throughout the place.

Boasting an upside down layout, the property has a unique feel, well-appointed with all the necessities enhancing a comfortable stay.

There is even an annexe should you be seeking some peace and quiet from the main group.

You can kick back and relax on the plush sofas, enjoy the luxury of the kitchenette and dining area and fully recharge with a comfortable night's sleep in the double bed.

The main house boasts a delightful sitting room enjoying views of the landscaped garden and the sea beyond, completed by a woodburning stove set into the stone exposed wall, adding character to this interior space.

However, why not sit in the airy conservatory showcasing some charming pine furniture with which to sit and enjoy the harmony between the cosy indoor space and the wild exterior?

Adjoining a delightful balcony, on which to admire the beautiful scenery, the dining room is a fabulous place to congregate at meal times.

The fully equipped kitchen is accompanied by a utility with a washing machine for added convenience.

Beautiful, landscaped gardens with glorious, mature shrubs and trees encircle the property and within close proximity is the secluded Flushing Cove, an idyllic, quiet riverside beach fringed by ancient woodland and beautiful scenery.

The thriving market town of Helston is an easy drive away bordered by spectacular coastline, a pleasant location famous for its Flora Day Festival.

The National Seal Sanctuary is a lovely place to visit during your stay, tucked away in a peaceful setting on Helford River, you can admire the seals play and feed.

With many attractions in the local area and a breath-taking spot to rest, what more could you possibly want from this spectacular Cornish retreat?

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
