Sitting on the edge of a wooded valley and only a short drive to the thriving fishing port of Porthleven with its restaurants, cafes and pretty harbour, this charming 19th Century former coach house is a perfect retreat for two. Set in eight acres of countryside, this delightful cottage is in a truly peaceful setting, completely detached and private from the Owners' house, and also Barney's Cabin (4185), which sits opposite but not overlooking the cottage. The raised decked terrace, accessed from the kitchen, overlooks fields and woods and is a lovely place to sit and simply enjoy the views over the market town of Helston.
With wonderful countryside views, Newham House Cottage is ideally located to explore not only Cornwall's rugged west coast but also gives great access to the Lizard peninsula, Helford River and beyond. For walkers, foodies, dog lovers and activity junkies alike, this lovely little cottage could be the base from which your holiday dreams are fulfilled and the welcome starts as soon as you step through the stable-door.

Room to cook and room to dine.
The beautiful bedroom. (This bed has been replaced with a king-size double bed - photographs to follow.)
Porthleven's picturesque harbour is only a few minutes drive away, alternatively you can walk or cycle through the nearby Penrose Estate.
Porthleven Sands, the long beach to the east of the harbour. There are strong undercurrents and submerged rocks which make swimming inadvisable, though popular with experienced surfers.
The small but well-equipped kitchen.
Sit by the wood-burner with a good book or just to chat about the wonderful places you have explored today.
The view from the deck across the rural open fields.
Lunch with a rather nice view from inside.

For inland walks head up to the Flat Lode near Redruth, just part of the network of Mining Trails from coast to coast.
If you like to get onto the water or simply sit and watch, nearby Stithians Lake is only a short drive a way.
A little further up the coast is the long sandy beach at Praa Sands, dog friendly out-of-season and easy access to the coast paths.
You can walk to Porthleven from nearby Helston following the path around Loe Bar lake and along the coast path.
Nearby Trelowarren Estate is worth a visit, woodland walks, gardens and a coffee or bite to eat at the New Yard Restaurant.
