Step through the front door of this gorgeous Georgian Cornish cottage and you will find yourself immersed in the laid-back loveliness of The Trusty Servant. This charming Grade II Listed terraced property is situated in a conservation area and is on the famous Flora Dance route. The property is much larger than it looks from the front and can't wait for you to discover its hidden treasures.
Entering into the exquisite yet homely living area, which retains historical charm effortlessly combined with today's modern comforts, there is a wood-burning stove to make things super-cosy. Snuggle up on the comfy sofas, close the traditional wooden shutters and open a rich bottle of red wine.
Down a few steps you will find the large kitchen with Victorian cook's table for informal dining, making this the heart of the home. Ideal for fabulous feasts with lovely wooden surfaces, butler sink and a SMEG fridge. You've got everything to hand to create a perfect meal, perhaps pick up some local produce on one of your adventures. Through the handy utility-room you will find a south-facing, sheltered and secluded courtyard garden complete with table for a spot of al fresco dining basking in the summer sunshine. There's also a handy outdoor tap to wash off wetsuits and sandy toes.
Up the stairs you will find two lovely bedrooms and the family bathroom; all gorgeously decorated with vintage finds, lovely white painted wooden floorboards and crisp, white linens; you'll never want to leave this calming sanctuary. On the second floor you will find a snug with vaulted ceilings, perfect for a bit of peace and quiet where you can also enjoy views of Helston and beyond. This quirky property was built in the 1800s and was once part of the Six Bells Pub, with lots of traditional features such as low door frames and little steps throughout. The church bells (after which the pub was named) can still be heard drifting through an open window.
Set in the heart of Helston, you will be in the perfect location to explore Cornwall; only four miles to the foodie hub of Porthleven where you can tickle your taste buds on many culinary treats. The Lizard, St Ives and many other wonderful destinations are within easy reach after which you can retreat to the welcome hands of The Trusty Servant. Helston is a pretty market town with plenty on offer too, perhaps pop into The Blue Anchor and try the local beer - Spingo - if you are feeling brave.
