With a passion for everything Cornish, the Owners of Valley View offer guests a warm welcome at this 21st Century single-storey cottage, one of four holiday properties on their 18th Century farm. Beautifully presented and with wonderful countryside views, this well designed cottage is perfectly positioned for a relaxing holiday where you could choose to do nothing more than sit and admire the beautiful landscape. The private garden and terrace is accessed directly from the living-room, the perfect spot for some al fresco dining or a chilled glass or two. Under-floor heating will keep you cosy year-round and with a National Trust public footpath to Tremayne Quay bordering the farm, you can be as active or inactive as you wish.
For the younger ones there is a games-room and large outdoor playground, the ideal place to make new friends with the residents from the other cottages at Mudgeon Vean. This is a working farm where you will see a menagerie of animals including dogs, cats, chickens and occasionally cows in the fields. However one probably unexpected sound you may hear is the barking of the seals from the Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek just down the road, why not go and say hello during your stay? With the popular Helford Creek juices and cider being made on the farm, the Owners are happy to give you a 'behind the scenes' view of how they press locally-grown apples to make these popular and tasty drinks, another great experience to add to your Cornwall holiday memories. Valley View is surrounded by ancient fields and woodland with panoramic views across an extensive valley area and only a short drive to the famous Frenchman's Creek (as in Daphne du Maurier's book) and the picturesque village of Helford. This is a truly beautiful part of Cornwall to experience where many wonderful holiday memories are just waiting to be made.
