  • "This was a lovely property, well situated within Pentewan."

    The open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge were beautiful with ample space for the family to occupy. The beds were comfortable and rooms were of a good size. The views from the balcony over Pentewan were lovely. My only observation was the parking which can be challenging and there is a certain technique to it and only room for one car which could be challenging for other familiies. However, overall I would definitely recommend this property and am sure we will book it again.

  • "The cottage itself was amazing."

    Well kitted out. Good location. Friendly neighbours and lots to do in the local area. A few points of note that we felt were not highlighted enough. Parking is a stressful mission each time you take the car out you have to do a 8 point turn on a 45degree hill. It is what it is but should be more highlighted on the details, especially if you have a big car. The low cost parking in the village at the weekend is non existent to use on a Fri, Sat and Sun. If it is like that in June, July and Aug will be no better. The other important point which should be highlighted is the accommodation is on a steep hill which requires a lot of energy to get up. I have 2 slipped discs. To be honest if I had known the accommodation was on a hill we would have chosen a more suitable location. It is a hard climb to the house if you struggle walking. The family did loved the location, pub, facilities of books and games. walks by the river. Overall I would recommend the accommodation as the beach is amazing.

The property

This well-presented, ground-floor apartment sits in Pentewan, close to the village centre and beach, in picturesque Cornwall.

Enjoying an open-plan layout, Helland is a great base for families or couples looking for a serene abode in Cornwall.

After a day of exploring, kick off your walking boots and retire in the open-plan living space, appointed with a plush corner sofa opposite a TV, so you can easily catch up on your favourite shows.

A contemporary kitchen awaits for home-cooking, offering all the essentials to whip up a hearty feast, while the integrated dishwasher helps with the cleaning up!

Take the evening outside to the patio, sipping a refreshing beverage as you ponder on the next Cornish adventure to tick off.

The bedrooms each feature double beds and plenty of storage to hold your personal belongings.

Awaken from a deep slumber with a rinse in the shower room, before heading to the kitchen for a light breakfast and coffee.

Less than half a mile away lies Pentewan Beach, a beautiful stretch of near-white sand that is suitable for swimming, surfing, windsurfing and sea canoeing.

Try a fishing trip or a short cruise taking in the scenery and chancing to see basking sharks, dolphins, and seals from the nearby village of Mevagissey.

Your new holiday home rests just 100 yards from the renowned coastal path, which will take you on a scenic journey towards Carlyon Bay and Charlestown, or through the campsite up to Mevagissey and beyond.

For further walking and cycling opportunities, you will find the Pentewan valley trail on the other side of the village, where you can hire bikes, including little ones and electric, and embark on a journey to St Austell and Mevagissey.

The local area is filled with friendly pubs and well-established restaurants, so there’s plenty of places to quench your thirst or stop off for a hearty meal after a long day.

Just two miles from this coastal cottage in Cornwall is the centre of the bustling fishing harbour of Mevagissey, where time can be enjoyed leisurely strolling beside the quay or browsing the many independent shops.

For a memorable day out, why not head to the popular attractions of The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project, both of which are just a short drive from Helland?

However you choose to spend your time, a stay at Helland is sure to bring fond memories.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


St Austell 4 miles; Mevagissey 2 miles.

Pentewan is a delightful coastal village set back from the sandy expanse of Pentewan Beach. The village shop and pub draw visitors from far and wide, while the beach is good for children and a favourite with water sport enthusiasts. Dogs are only permitted on the beach between the first Sunday in November and the end of February, but dog walkers can enjoy the stunning woodland of the Pentewan Valley Trail, along with other beaches a short drive away. The coastal path passes through the village and as it climbs up the cliffside towards Mevagissey, the views across the bay toward Devon in the far distance are breath-taking. Good cycle paths pass close by and there is cycle hire available in the village. The nearby fishing village of Mevagissey offers many restaurants and fresh local fish. The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Pinetum Gardens are both just a short drive away, while the Eden Project is within easy reach and well worth a visit.
