    “Controlled from Cambridge.....”

    This is a comfy, clean and well equipped cottage, with good quality fittings. It has excellent wi-fi and is handily situated for a variety of interesting places like Falmouth, the Helford river, and Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens. A bonus is the fact that, although it's situated on a relatively quiet country lane, it's served by an excellent hourly bus service between Falmouth and Helford Passage. I didn't have to do much driving whilst staying there, which was relaxing. In fact, you could probably do without a car entirely. Why the owners and the managers, Sykes Cottages, don't promote the existence of this service puzzles me. I'm not greatly impressed by Sykes Cottages. What information they could give me about the cottage was not always accurate. A more local company would be likely to be more familiar with the property and so better able to answer queries about it. As for the cottage itself, I only have a couple of gripes. The first concerns the heating system, which is not controllable from within the property, but only by contacting the owners, who live in Cambridge. Whilst they're responsive to such requests, it's a pain not to have the capacity to do it yourself, and I was either too hot or not warm enough at times. The second is the lack of local information within the cottage, e.g. the location of the nearest beach, supermarkets, where to park (there is in fact off-road parking adjacent to the cottage). Still, don't want to be unduly critical. I'd certainly recommend a stay here, and would be happy return here myself - not something I'd say about a number of holiday cottages I've stayed at!

The property

This traditional cottage is less than a mile from the coast close to the seaside town of Falmouth.

In a rural village setting near the Helford Estuary, this character property is ideal for families, friends and couples seeking a homely retreat.

The front door opens directly into the living room with exposed beams, a generous stone hearth with a mock stove and dining area.

The kitchen has all you need to rustle up a bite to eat and the two bedrooms are country casual.

The master with double bed and additional single bed (fifth guest welcome on request) and the twin is ideal for both adults and children.

At the front is a pretty paved, slightly elevated enclosed patio, a sunspot with countryside views for dining in the Cornish air.

The village offers walk-to amenities to include a shop for provisions, village pub and restaurant.

Fabulous Falmouth with deep water harbour, National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and quirky gift shops, art galleries and eateries is four miles away.

From the harbour, enjoy Rick Stein's Fish & Chips before boarding the ferry to picturesque Flushing, St Mawes or Truro, or take a fishing excursion or seal safari.

The sandy beaches of Swanpool and Gyllyngvase boast good cafes for waterside refreshment.The florally scenic National Trust Gardens at Glendurgan, Trebah and Carwinion are within easy reach of Nanparra Cottage.

Or enjoy a round of golf or don walking boots and ramble the coast path through ancient woodland.

Hire a kayak or boat and discover secret creeks and tiny coves on the banks of the River Helford, with a picnic basket or pasty.

Reward your efforts with a pub lunch in one of the waterside inns at Helford Passage or Helford Village, linked via the passenger ferry.

A superb spot for discovering the delights around Falmouth, Nanparra Cottage makes a comfy haven.

About the location

FALMOUTH

Mabe 3 miles; Penryn 2 miles; Truro 11 miles.

Falmouth, with its magnificent natural harbour (the third largest in the world), winding streets and beaches, will keep you occupied for hours. The town's old harbour-side pubs, excellent shopping, art gallery and stunning National Maritime Museum simply complete the picture. Pendennis Castle, built by Henry VIII, is Falmouth's most popular attraction, sited on its own peninsula with superb panoramic sea views. Across from Falmouth harbour is the beautiful town of St Mawes, surrounded by the rocky coves, sandy beaches and lush green countryside of the Roseland Peninsula. Go there by car (15 miles) or take the passenger ferry from Falmouth (15 minutes). For nature lovers there is the Swanpool Nature Reserve, a lagoon and site of special scientific interest teeming with a variety of wildlife. Falmouth offers such a rich variety of landscape and attractions for people of all ages, it is sure to tempt you back time and again.
