Peter and Vivienne have three adult children and we have all enjoyed frequent family holidays together. The house has space to accommodate our extended, multi-generational family in comfort and style. We have celebrated Christmas and New Year together as well as many special birthdays and occasions. Peter and Vivienne met in Exeter at university and have a strong love for grew the West Country, open country side and sea. Although we now live in Kent, we spend every available moment and holiday in Manaccan. The house is our main family home and the place where we go back to whenever we can. Peter enjoys painting and the special Cornish air and light is a strong attraction.
Vivienne Wells purchased this house in 2006
Following numerous family holidays in Cornwall, we decided to purchase our own home in Manaccan in 2006. We love the small village and close proximity to the Helford River where we can walk, sail and enjoy the beautiful views. We have spent many a day walking the local coastal paths and on the beach with our dog, Millie. Manaccan is within easy driving distance of the The Lizard and Kynance Cove, Praa sands, Lands End and Sennen as well as the surfing beaches of the north coast of Cornwall. The variety of the coastline is immense and stunning. No holiday is ever the same!
Minster Fields is modern and easy to manage. The three en suite bathrooms make it suitable for use by extended or multiple families and afford privacy and comfort. The large kitchen and excellent cooking facilities mean that cooking and catering are as straightforward and easy as they can be for large numbers. Numerous beautiful rural and coastal walks can be taken directly from the house and it is wonderful to be able to leave the car in the driveway at times.
We rented 9 Minster Feilds over the new year period, we were a group of 12 adults and the house had plenty of space for all. The house was very well equipped and had everything you could need plus a nice few luxuries such as the open wood fire and table tennis in the garage. The surrounding area was stunning some beautiful beaches and walks nearby, we would highly recommend going to Kyance cove, and ther near by pub the ship inn.
Overall a perfect weekend and a perfect house to match
A group of 13 of us spent this Christmas in Manaccan, all of various ages. Finding a property with spacious living area and a large enough dining table to seat us all on Christmas Day, was proving tricky at time of booking as we had left it a little late. Luckily, we found this place, which turned out to be perfect. Good sized rooms, large kitchen, beautiful conservatory which was a little cold in the winter, but would be ideal in the warmer months. The images on the site don't do the place enough justice.
What really makes this place special however, is the small personal touches such as books, board games and great choice of DVDs available to watch, as well as Chromecast to upload anything from mobile phones or iPads. When we arrived, there were fresh flowers, tea coffee and double chocolate chip cookies on the table! The ping pong table in the garage kept us active and the real log fire in the front room was such a treat. It was really sad to leave after 4 lovely days, we would happily come back soon. Thank you so much Vivienne!
This is a beautiful large house in a lovely location, with all the modern amenities, kids both big and small loved the games room in the garage we had a wonderful weekend, highly recommend
The property was used by three generations. We all had a super bedroom, and our 12 year old granddaughter was ecstatic at having an en suite to herself. The kitchen was very well equipped, with a huge fridge freezer that was a great help. Table tennis kept everyone amused while waiting for dinner. The only downside was a small garden, but as we were lucky with the weather, the garden was not required very much.
The property is well situated for beaches, National Trust properties, supermarkets, small towns nearby, and a great local pub.
Thank you to the owners for allowing us to stay in their super home.
