    Mrs Abbotts

    “Lovely house but location was misrepresented by owners in terms of proximity of nearest swimming beach - description said 0.”

    5 mile to Dollar Cove (which I checked online and found was adjacent to the swimmable Church Cove) rather than the actual 1.5 miles, which meant a car journey every time. ...

    5 mile to Dollar Cove (which I checked online and found was adjacent to the swimmable Church Cove) rather than the actual 1.5 miles, which meant a car journey every time. Also, the company dealt poorly with my complaint ; lodged 3rd Aug, followed up next day by me, then nothing. I had to ring again 13th only to find there would be no compensation. *** Owner Response*** Dear Mrs Abbotts I'm sorry you feel the information about the beach was misrepresented. The information has now been corrected. hope you still managed to have a lovely holiday in beautiful Cornwall? Warm wishes Rebecca Lloyd

At the back of the house the enclosed lawned garden with table and chairs is a great spot for simply sitting and taking in the far-reaching views across the fields and surrounding landscape.

About the location


Helston 5 miles; Mullion 7 miles.

Gunwalloe village is situated amongst the sand dunes and cliffs on the west coast of the Lizard Peninsula with three beaches, a large stretch of sand reaching as far as Porthleven, Dollar and Church Cove and a popular pub, The Halzephron Inn, offering tables outside with views right across Mount’s Bay. Gunwalloe is near to Mullion which is a large village on the Lizard Peninsula, the most southerly tip of mainland Britain. The village is home to a selection of popular restaurants, shops and pubs, Mullion Meadows Chocolate Factory and coffee shop, as well as Mullion Cove, a pretty working harbour. Helston is a pleasant, busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the fascinating Helston Folk Museum and the very popular Flambards theme park. Also within half an hours drive are Falmouth, St Ives and Penzance. The Helford River, with boat hire, sub-tropical gardens and two fabulous pubs is also just a 15 minute drive. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Gunwalloe is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family
