For unparalleled views over Port Navas Creek and complete peace and tranquility in an idyllic setting, Gate Acre is pretty hard to beat. Perfect for family holidays in any season this spacious detached single-storey house is set in the heart of the lovely Helford River valley. A landscaped, gently sloping enclosed garden provides space for children to play, and guests of all ages will admire the spectacular views across the water, the wooded valley, and the open countryside beyond from the fabulous raised terrace. Inside, all the living-rooms and the ‘zip and link’ bedroom have superb views of the creek, as does the single room (which is also another sitting-room). At the rear of the house are the twin bedroom and two en suite double rooms, one with a luxurious super-king size bed, and also the family bathroom with claw-foot bath and walk-in shower. All the front rooms have sliding doors opening onto the terrace; the enormous main sitting-room also features a Blu-ray player, Sky HD box and a contemporary wood-burner. The equally spacious kitchen/dining-room includes another comfortable sitting-area, TV with Sky HD box, a wood-burner and patio doors onto the terrace – the perfect spot for socialising with family and friends.
It is just a short drive to Falmouth’s beaches or the Lizard peninsula’s picturesque coves and seaside villages, and with Glendurgan and Trebah gardens also close by there is plenty for everyone to see and do in the area.
