    “I booked the cottage for a family get together and it worked very well, Plenty of space in all the rooms.”

    The gardens looked lovely but unfortunately the weather was awful so we never got outside much. Picturesque views over the river. Minutes to walk to the local pub the Lemon Arms which is a friendly local which serves excellent pub grub. Also the local shop the same distance. An ideal location for anyone who wants to walk and also very near to Falmouth and Truro. I would definitely stay again.

The property

Paces from picturesque Mylor Creek in a coastal village setting, Gwel-an-Gillan boasts homely and spacious accommodation with water views.

Tucked at the end of a tranquil cul-de-sac, this detached holiday home-stay has a wrap around garden and a welcoming interior for family, friends and couples seeking a bolthole for relaxation and recreation.

The ground floor has a triple-aspect living room framing the garden and creek views beyond, big sofas and open fire for extra cosiness.

The dining area is a great social space for foody gatherings.

Open the doors onto the balcony, overlooking the lawns for play and alfresco dining.

The modern kitchen with breakfast table and utility room have all the appliances.

The lower ground floor has a bedroom for extra privacy and shower room, plus a games room for a game of ping-pong and table football.

The three additional bedrooms on the first floor include one with views over the creek towards the sailing club.

Mylor Harbour has boats and kayaks for hire, a fabulous way to explore the almost secret inlets of the River Fal.

Discover the waterside footpaths to the 13th century Pandora Inn in Restronguet and to Flushing Beach, with its little shore and seascape towards Falmouth.

Hire bikes at Devoran and peddle the Mineral Tramways Trail which forms part of the much famed coast-to-coast cycle route from east to West Cornwall.

Falmouth is a colourful resort with beaches, big harbour, historic Pendennis Castle and The National Maritime Museum.

Browse the galleries and gift shops, and eat in the myriad of restaurants, cafés and traditional inns.

The King Harry Ferry at Feock bobs across the waters to charismatic Roseland Peninsula.

The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are within a 40-minute car trip.

After a day full of adventure, return to Gwel-an-Gillan, a superb retreat all year round.

About the location

MYLOR BRIDGE

Falmouth 4 miles; Truro 8 miles.

A sought-after and picturesque village at the head of Mylor Creek that runs up from the Carrick Roads, the World’s third largest deep water harbour. Boats and sailing, wooded creeks, softly gliding water, riverside pubs and fabulous gardens epitomise the area. This friendly village has a superb selection of local shops (try the fresh fish!), a Post Office, a good pub and several restaurants within easy reach. The nearby harbour town of Falmouth with its exciting Maritime Museum and its castle, beaches and marina makes a great day out while the Cathedral city of Truro famous for its cobbled streets, theatre, museums and vibrant shopping centre should not be missed. Take the car, or a boat from Falmouth, for a trip up the stunningly beautiful Helford River and while there, call in at Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens for the horticultural treat of the year. The area is perfectly placed too for exploring the rugged cliffs, sandy coves and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula, also The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within an hour’s drive.
