Number 31 Lower Stables is a homely apartment, just a few minutes' walk from Maenporth Beach. It's in a great position as it's close to the leisure centre, and has stunning views of the bay. The cool, cream walls make the space feel light and airy.
The main entrance is at car-park level with a flight of fifteen steps down to the apartment. Once you open the main door, Number 31 is all on garden level. There's a large open-plan living and dining area next to the kitchenette. You'll find two comfortable leather sofas facing either the television or the gardens, so you can choose your view! Patio doors open onto the paved terrace where you can enjoy a lazy lunch in the sunshine, or keep an eye on the children as they play on the grass.The dining area is adjacent to the kitchen and consists of a traditional pine table and chairs. Again, there's plenty of room for an early evening supper or a riotous, family game of Hungry Hippos. The kitchen, styled in duck-egg blue, contains everything your family needs for a week away.
Along the corridor and you'll see the master bedroom with its simple style, and en-suite bathroom with both a bath and overhead shower. Patio doors from the bedroom will take you into the garden. You have net curtains on the windows here for privacy. The second bedroom has a set of twin beds, and just opposite is the family bathroom with its modern suite of dove-grey.
We'll pop in a welcome hamper for you comprising of red wine, Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk and a packet of Cornish biscuits.
There is a refundable £100 deposit against damages required on this property.
You'll have full use of the leisure facilities including the indoor, heated swimming pool.
We have been coming to this property at an New Year for a number of years now and love its location. Sea views from both bedrooms and the living room make it a winner.
We had a fantastic stay at 31 lower Stables, the location was breath taking with amazing views over the bay. All the staff were welcoming and extremely helpful. The facilities were excellent and well maintained. The apartment was very comfortable, however the property had very strong smell of dump mainly in the upper corridor and master bedroom. And a few simple improvements to the property would of made the accommodation excellent - in the master bathroom there was a large amount of black mold staining on the coving, both extract fans needed a very good clean as they both had a large build up of dust. I also noticed many guests reviews in the guest book stating blackout curtains would be great in the 2 bedrooms, I would agree with this and would suggest this is really considered. Overall the location, grounds, and facilities were all excellent, the property was comfortable and okay condition but with a few small improvements it would be excellent also.
The Maenporth Estate is just two miles from Falmouth and overlooks the beautiful Maenporth Beach. It's a private complex with a coded entrance gate, making it safe and secure for all guests.
Set in 29 acres of natural woodland, with stunning views of the cove, it's a perfect base for family holidays. You'll find two all-weather tennis courts, a children's play area, and, of course, the Leisure Centre where we have our indoor, heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. There are pool and table tennis tables - all free of charge.
The famous award-winning Cove Restaurant is on site, or if you'd prefer something simple, try the Life's a Beach Cafe - you guessed it, on Maenporth beach, for fresh crab sandwiches or a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream. Two miles along the coast and you'll come across Helford Passage and the wonderful Ferryboat Inn which specialises in serving local seafood dishes. From here you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, or hire a rowing boat or paddle board for the afternoon.
Maenporth's a sheltered cove with shallow waters, making it perfect for all kinds of family beach activities: the little ones will love paddling, splashing daddy, and clambering through rock pools. There's plenty of sand and piles of pebbles for sandcastle building, and beautiful clear water for swimming.
Arvor Sea Kayaking offer guided kayaking trips throughout the year, and Cornwall Divers will take you on a scuba diving course from the beach! And, at low tide, you may spot the famous Scottish trawler, Ben Asdale, that was wrecked off the Maenporth coast on 30th December 1978.
The nearest town is Falmouth - the third largest natural harbour in the world - take a boat trip along the Carrick Waters to a smuggler's cottage, or hop on the ferry to St Mawes. Visit the Maritime Museum, great for children with its hands-on approach. Catch some the Grand Medieval Jousting at Pendennis Castle. Or simply sit with a cold glass of white wine and watch the boats glide by.
Whatever you choose to do, you'll be sure to unwind from the stresses of life, and simply relax...
