A traditional Cornish cottage, Old Walls is set in the heart of the pretty village of Constantine, surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the north side of the Helford River. Step through the cottage door to a warm welcome at any time of year, sink into the comfy sofas around the cosy wood-burner in the sitting-room or enjoy the sociable space of the kitchen/diner next door. There are three beautifully furnished bedrooms on the first floor along with the family bathroom. When you fancy a bit of al fresco dining, there is a sheltered rear courtyard behind the cottage, ideal for a morning coffee and a croissant whilst planning the day ahead.
The village of Constantine is named after a 6th Century Cornish Saint; there are two local stores, one with a surprising array of over one thousand whiskies, and a few hundred gins and wines to try. There are wonderful views from the 13th Century Parish Church with many footpaths nearby just waiting to be explored. The mature gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are beautiful any time of the year and the coastal town of Falmouth is worth a visit, with ferries and wildlife trips for those thrill seekers. Whether coming to Cornwall to discover new places, or retracing your steps from holidays gone by, this delightful home-from-home offers a great base and will help recharge the batteries before its time to say goodbye.
