  • "Beautifully decorated, peaceful, private cottage."

    Lovely places to visit within walking distance. Totally authentic Cornwall.

  • "The Cottage was delightful set in peaceful wooded surroundings."

    However in the main bedroom there was little if any storage other than for hanging clothes in the cupboard.. What is really needed is a good sized chest of drawers. We ended up living out of our suitcases on the bedroom floor. Also it would be helpful to have an outside light at the front door when on dark nights returning to the property it is difficult to find the keys and the door keyhole. Also the light would help as the access is over uneven and cobbled ground. Other than the above we enjoyed our stay at Gardeners Cottage.

    Hi. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Understood ref the chest of drawers, we will make sure there is improved storage for 2022. There is an outside light that comes on automatically when sensing movement, but we were not aware at the time of your booking that it had stopped working, so please accept our apologies for this. It has of course been fixed since. Hopefully we will see you again. Paul & Laraine :) Property Owner

Falmouth 6 miles ; Helford Passage 1.5 miles ; Helston 12.5 miles

Located near the mouth of the Helford River in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Mawnan Smith is a pretty little village. It is home to a traditional pub, a restaurant, a church and a handful of shops. The surrounding area is perfect for ramblers, with an abundance of creekside and woodland walks, and subtropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah. The Helford River also offers opportunities for kayaking and sailing as well as fishing. The nearby maritime town of Falmouth is a popular resort, with a range of shops and restaurants, bowling alley and the National Maritime Museum….

Enterprise Boats offer trips up the River Fal from Falmouth to Truro, passing iconic maritime locations and landmarks as well as several ocean-going vessels which anchor in the river.
