    “Lovely cottage in a lovely village ...”

    Lovely cottage in a lovely village we were treated to great weather, cosy local pub and the scrummy cakes at the coffee shop a stones throw away, great dog walks and cottage garden. Thanks Nathan and Sam

The property

A cosy semi-detached cottage in the pretty village of Manaccan near the Helford River, Hillside makes a charming bolthole for families and couples.

On the ground floor, the welcoming sitting room has exposed beams and an open fire - very cosy in the colder months.

The pretty country kitchen has all the mod cons for rustling up a family feast - gather around the farmhouse table and plan the day's adventure.

The sunroom is a peaceful spot for a morning coffee or evening drink, with windows framing the attractive cottage garden and beautiful views of the Durra Valley and woodlands beyond.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom.

The garden is delightful, a small, private, enclosed child and pet-friendly haven with a patio and lawn.

Hillside is just 2 miles from Helford village by car and just over one mile on foot through lovely beech woods.

The picturesque Gillan Creek and St Anthony are also within easy reach by car.

Locally, there is a family friendly thatched pub and a seasonal-opening bistro restaurant in Manaccan village, both within a short stroll of the cottage.

Ramblers will enjoy the walks around the creeks of the Helford River including Frenchman's Creek made famous by Daphne du Maurier's novel.

Take to the water by canoe or boat and explore the inlets amidst oak woodlands.

Board the ferry to the famous Ferry Boat Inn and have some waterside refreshment.

Explore further down river to the sub-tropical gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan or visit the beaches at Kennack Sands and Poldhu all within easy reach by car.

Hillside is the perfect cottage for a relaxing break amidst beautiful scenery close to the coast.

About the location


Helston 10 miles ; Helford 1.5 miles ; Porthallow 3 miles

The village of Manaccan on the South Helford is small and friendly, with an excellent restaurant, friendly village inn and a beautiful 12th century church. The South Helford is arguably one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of Cornwall. With meandering country roads, picturesque creeks, tidal inlets and pretty waterside villages, the area can be summed up in three words: tranquil, charming and timeless. The perfect spot for enjoying outdoor living, the South Helford’s sheltered coves were made for messing around on the water and strolling leisurely along the banks. Leave your ‘phone behind and embrace the simple pleasures - while away time paddling in the shallows, explore hidden coves with a hire boat from St Anthony, and stroll through woodland to enjoy a picnic on the beach.
