  • "A return stay for us here."

    Excellent facilities - everything you could need plus a cream tea on arrival! Lovely quiet area too. Perfect to get away from it all for a while. Mullion village is a short walk away with shops & pubs etc. Highly recommended!

  • "We had a lovely weeks stay at The Boathouse and can not fault the cleanliness and facilities of the property."

    The kitchen is very well stocked, there was nothing we would have needed. The cream tea on arrival and fresh flowers were a lovely touch. The bathroom, although small, had a lovely large powerful shower which was very welcomed. The owner emailed while we were there to make sure everything was satisfactory. One area that does let the property down is the outside space - the listing states there’s a garden/patio but what it doesn’t say is it’s on the gravel driveway in the front garden. There is nowhere private to sit. It is a private estate so there is no through traffic, but not somewhere you’d want to sit in your pjs with a morning cuppa - residents were coming and going as were a few delivery vans. There were some wooden chairs to sit on but no table if you ever wanted to eat outside. The property is also quite dark as there were no low level windows to look out of. There are French windows in the bedroom, but again, they face the front of the property and the car parking, so we always felt we wanted them closed so that people couldn’t see in. This was the same for the main living area, the front door is all glass, but again faces the road so we kept it closed as you have to walk through the kitchen/living area from the bathroom to the bedroom and when the lights were on, which they always were because it was dark, you could see right into the living space. Overall, we did enjoy our stay, and if you don’t want any down time in a private garden in between days out, then this property is ideal.

  • "The Boathouse was very comfortable and in a perfect location for exploring Cornwall."

    It’s about a 20 minute walk to Pollurian Cove and a little further to Mullion Cove. Trienet really made us feel welcome with a cream tea on arrival and she even left us a card and flowers for our wedding anniversary. She also took the time to research restaurants that might be suitable for a celebration. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment which meant we could do some baking on the rainy days. The COVID cleaning was also excellent and we felt very safe when we were there. We didn’t want to leave!

  • "Beautiful accommodation, very spacious for two people."

    The Boat House is very well situated for visiting many places in the area. Mullion village is walkable, with 2 pubs, shops and chemist.Great pub at Gunwalloe, very good menu especially fish dishes. Wonderful views of the sea. Also recommended the little cafe overlooking the sea at the Lizard. Great place to watch the seals! We had a very comfortable and relaxing holiday at the Boat House, a pleasure to come home to after a day exploring the local area.

  • "The Boathouse is an exceptionally comfortable place to stay."

    Very spacious and well furnished. We also appreciated the trouble that the owners had gone to with extra cleaning for COVID-19. We enjoyed the short walk into the village and down to the sea. Had a lovely week walking, exploring the Lizard and visiting the seals at Gweek!

    It would be even better if... There were two front door keys. The cream carpet at the front door is nice but isn’t practical. A full length mirror in the bedroom. It was a lovely welcome with the cream tea on arrival. A great location to lots of amenities in the area.

  • "The Boathouse is on a small private gated estate of just a few houses so is very quiet and parking very easy."

    The welcoming cream tea was a nice touch after a long day on the road as was the bottle of wine for “afters”. Property is very well maintained and owners are fastidious in sorting out any issues being only next door to the rental. While we were there the bathroom radiator had a small leak and the owner had the plumber sort it the very next day. We mostly chose to use the local buses to get around and although they struggle to keep to their timetables we did manage to get to most places we set out for. The nearest bus stops are only a minute walk just by the local school and if you ask the drivers they’ll even drop you by the gate. The village has a couple of shops that cater for all your provisions should you wish to leave the car on the drive and should you fancy eating out there’s a couple of pubs and restaurants. If more choice is needed then a short drive to Helston will provide that with more restaurants and the usual selection of supermarkets. We had a lovely stay and would recommend the Boathouse for couples/singles who like peace and quiet to relax after a day out exploring.

  • "This is a good base to explore the lizard area of Cornwall with quite easy access to most of west Cornwall."

    There is a pub (The Old Inn) within a 20 minute walk that serves good beer and nice meals and a local spar shop and a small boots pharmacy. Would have liked a secluded area to sit if we had stayed there during the evening but with a great walk and the pub only a short distance away it wasn't a big issue. Would certainly stay here again. The owner left us a lovely cream tea for our arrival and was very approachable and gave us some good local information.

    We took a walk to the village to have a meal but it was terrible. So other than that you would need to drive. The cottage was clean and had everything you need. We would have rebooked but a price hike of over £150 for a week is shocking. I couldn't justify that kind of money in the area it is. Very disappointed.

    The cottage was spotless and the host had left us 4 vases of fresh flowers, a bowl of fruit, a bowl of Easter eggs, two individual Easter eggs and two cream teas WOW The village has two pubs that sell good food and we were welcomed in both, they are 5 minutes walk away but would recommend a torch for walking home. The village also has a curry house and a fish & chip shop. We had a relaxing, comfortable 8 day holiday, the Boathouse is well placed to reach many parts of Cornwall by foot or road. I would highly recommend this cottage and we will be returning.

  • "The property was bigger than expected; while the pictures on the website are accurate they do not give the correct impression of size - the property is very spacious."

    It is also set within a gated community and is set back so you do not see it until you drive in. The owner had set out a cream tea for us to have on our arrival even filling the kettle, which was a lovely touch as was the beautiful white lilies and the box of after eight chocolates (I love after eights!). The scent from the lilies stayed with us all week and was gorgeous. The location, though initially felt a bit off the beaten track, was actually quite a good location for getting to almost everywhere. We never spent more than 1.5 hours getting to our furthest destinations. We travelled to the Lizard (very close), Land's End, St Michael's Mount, St Ives, Padstow, St Mawes, Portreath, Falmouth, Penzance and places inbetween. The roads can be quite steep and hilly with some tight bends, if you are used to country lanes then you will be okay navigating around.

The property

This luxury detached apartment is located in the village of Mullion on the glorious Lizard Peninsula, just five miles from Helston, the most southerly town in Great Britain.

From the moment you arrive at the electric gated entrance to The Boathouse, you know that this holiday home is something special.

As you enter, you are greeted with a superb home-made Cornish cream tea and you will immediately be taken by the contemporary feel that surrounds you.

The property features a spacious open plan living area with a leather sofa and comfy armchair, a well-equipped kitchen and a dining area which are all designed with every comfort in mind.

The bathroom with candle lights and large bedroom with French windows continue the luxurious theme throughout the property.

Outside, the patio is an ideal spot to start or end the day in the glorious Cornish sunshine.

Mullion is the largest village on the Lizard Peninsula and has shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, craft shops and art galleries.

Mullion Cove is a pretty working harbour where you can still see the old pilchard cellar and net store in this historic spot where smuggling tales are legendary.

The nearby Poldhu Cove is an easily accessible relaxing beach whilst the beach at Polurrian, which is popular with surfers, is reached by an attractive walk along the cliffs or through a valley and is well worth the effort.

The Lizard Peninsula is stunningly beautiful at any time of year with probably the warmest climate in Britain, and has been a lifelong inspiration for artists and writers with the clean crisp air helping to create a constant profusion of colour all year round.

The rocks and cliffs offer shelter to the tiny fishing villages with their thatched whitewashed cottages where these small communities still depend largely on the sea for their livelihood.

A wonderful place for a luxury holiday all year round.
