The property

This transformed former sail loft provides a romantic getaway in the small village of St Martin, three miles from Helford.

This detached stone built cottage is surrounded by picturesque countryside.

The cushions, curtains, rugs, ornaments and artwork create a festival of colour and interest against the neutral decor and heavy classic furniture.

A stylish retreat for two, the ground floor is open plan with living area, kitchen and dining area.

The shower room is conveniently placed on the ground floor.

Stairs lead you to a sumptuous and spacious bedroom oozing restfulness.

The enclosed decked patio is a glorious spot to sit and relax with a book or board game provided at the cottage.

There is off-road parking for one car.

Surrounded by creekside woodlands this cottage has easy access to scenic footpaths, riverside taverns, tranquil beaches and hidden creeks along the beautiful Helford River.

Maritime Falmouth resort, the cathedral city of Truro and the hidden coves and beaches of the Lizard Peninsula are all within a short drive offering adventure and fun.

Take to the water on the passenger ferry (operates 1st Apr-31st Oct) to explore the sub-tropical gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan, the pretty fishing village of Durgan or the famed Frenchman's Creek.

Perfectly located to enjoy a romantic rendezvous and explore Cornwall, Bolitho's Retreat is a wonderful retreat to return to after memorable days out.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
