The Maenporth Cottages
The cottages are spread throughout the Estate in small terraces, each with a slightly different outlook over the grounds but all with patios and private parking. Wildlife is plentiful, with an abundance of birds, squirrels and the occasional fox and badger all attracted by the landscaped grounds and woodland.
Offering accommodation of varying sizes, each property is individually styled with convivial open plan living accommodation on the ground floor and doors leading out to a patio and communal lawns or private garden areas. There is a storage area for boats and dinghies for those wishing to enjoy the wonderful sailing opportunities locally (although regretfully commercial vans and camper vans are not allowed on site).
This secluded holiday spot is within easy reach of the bustling town of Falmouth and all its facilities, yet it feels like you’ve been let into a well-kept secret. Maenporth beach is a perfect, sheltered little cove backed by woodland and gentle hills; it’s the kind of place you can imagine the Famous Five having visited.
Close by are the gardens of Trebah and Swanpool and Gyllyngvase; both sandy family beaches, and beyond these the coast path takes you into Falmouth where you can shop til you drop, visit the historic Pendennis Castle or have lunch at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. From Falmouth you can also take the ferry to other locations along the banks of the River Fal.
