Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Helford - Glebe Hall Cottages

Clipper cottage has 3 bedrooms, sleeps up to six people

Attached to a substantial Georgian Coach House, Glebe Hall Cottages is made up of four individual cottages, Clipper, Cutter, Cloop & Schooner and are situated in a terrace, each cottage is set over three levels and are on the edge of the lovely, peaceful village of Mawgan, not far from the Helford, near the market town of Helston, in the South West of Cornwall. Close to the picturesque tidal creeks of the Helford River, the properties are set in two acres of secluded south facing terraced gardens bordered by farmland and the thickly wooded grounds of the historic Trelowarren Estate. Whether you choose to laze beside the heated pool (open End of May to September) or visit over 20 beautiful gardens - Glendurgan, Lost Grdens of Heligan, Trebah, Trevarno, Trelissick etc., walk the wonderful coastal paths or enjoy water sports on the nearby beaches and coves - this area of Cornwall has everything. Each Cottage comes fully equipped and all linen and towels are provided. Just across the lane is the Ship Inn, where you can enjoy great locally produced food.

FANTASTIC FOR FAMILY & FRIENDS GROUPS: Because the four cottages are arranged together in their own separate courtyard, they are ideal for groups - whether Family or Friends. Groups can have exclusive use of all the communal facilities - Swimming Pool, Games Room, Children's Play Area and the Beautiful Gardens, while returning to their own cottage space to relax at the end of another exciting day in this fabulous part of part of Cornwall *.

Taking all four cottages together provides nine bedrooms, and four bathrooms and can therefore provide Group accommodation for up to eighteen Adults and/or Children.

Since opening in 2004, Julian and Ali have seen an increase in Group bookings for School Reunions, Wedding

Parties and just regular get togethers of Family Friends - not just for one year, but repeat bookings for two, three and four years.

* Glebe Hall Cottages are in set within an officially designated 'AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY'.

About Julian and Ali Rand

Hello, our names are Julian, Ali & Alex Rand and we live here and run Glebe Hall Cottages as a family business nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Lizard Peninsula. We used to live in the 'rat race' up in Berkshire and decided to make a break for the countryside and start a new life in Cornwall 14 years ago. Since buying Glebe Hall we have made it our job to continually improve facilities and work hard to make sure everything is here for our guests to enjoy. As well as working hard with the property, we also have time for our son, who always enjoys meeting new children each year and welcoming them to Glebe Hall. We like to think that we are friendly, but not invasive and respect our guests privacy. We are on hand if needed but generally leave everyone to come and go as they please. Julian's hat is 'Accounts and Maintenance' and Ali's is 'Front of House and House Keeping'. We have a great team helping us on the busy change over days and try our upmost to present the cottages in a clean and tidy manor. We always hope that if there were anything our guests need, they can approach us. Please read our guests comments to see for yourselves! We hope you enjoy looking at our website and hope that we can accommodate you at some point in the future.

We care about our community and the area in which we live. Julian is chair of governors at our local village school and is involved with many local community projects past and present. Recently, Julian was honoured with an MBE for services to the communities of Helston and Mawgan in the 2014 Queens Birthday Honours List

Julian and Ali Rand purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Julian and Ali Rand chose Helford

It is set in a lovely village within easy reach of local amenities within a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. We are only four miles from the market town of Helston and within a ten minute drive to local beaches and places of interest.

What makes this cottage unique

With four individual cottages set in a terrace with a shared walled secure courtyard, we can provide comfortable accommodation for groups of friends/family wishing to holiday together but being able to have their own privacy within their own cottage.

The heated outdoor swimming pool is a great hit with families or for people wanting to laze by the pool enjoying the peacefulness of the surrounding area.

wonderful gem in a beautiful part of the world

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by very kind owners on arrival and shown around the lovely grounds and cottage. The cottages were Clean and provided everything we needed. The swimming pool was lovely and open from morning til evening and provided great fun for the children as did the large garden. Being able to dry towels etc in the laundry was really useful too. The games room was a great place to chill out after a day at the beach of which there are many beautiful ones to chose from nearby. All in all a fantastic place to stay.

A lovely setting in rural Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in Sloop cottage as a family of four with kids aged 6 and 3 years. The pool was a major high-point for the kids and the weather was good enough for us to swim every day. They loved all the inflatable toys in the pool house as well as the games room stocked with kids DVDs. We'll definitely be returning in the future.
