Overview

About the property

3 bed apartment at Maenporth Beach. Use of swimming pool. Own patio.

Number 67 Lower Maen Cottage is a spacious end-of-terrace cottage on the Maenporth Estate. It's in a great location - close to the leisure centre, just a few minutes' walk to the beach and a ten-minute drive into the busy seaside town of Falmouth. It's decorated in neutral colours and has a simple yet homely style. All together, the effect is peaceful and calming.

Once inside, you'll see the large, open-plan living and dining area with views of the sea through the trees. There are two comfy sofas for relaxing at the end of a long day sightseeing in Truro. The dining table easily seats six for a leisurely supper, or for the whole family to sit and colour or craft for an hour before bedtime. You'll find an oilcloth on the table so there's no need to worry about staining the wood. The furniture throughout the downstairs is traditional pine which makes the apartment feel cosy. The kitchen, again, is simply styled. It has everything you'll need for your holiday, all tucked away behind pine units.

There's a toilet and hand basin on this floor too which will certainly help keep the queues down last thing at night.Upstairs now, and you'll find the master bedroom with views across the garden and down to the sea. It's got an en-suite shower room and toilet. There's a twin, and a single room overlooking the gardens at the front of the property. All the bedrooms are kitted out with plenty of pine furniture, and the beds are dressed in crisp white with touches of cool blue for a tranquil feel. The family bathroom has both a bath and overhead shower, and the walls are decorated in pretty apricot shaded tiles. As an added extra, we are now supplying each guest with one bath and one hand towel, free of charge.

Back downstairs and out through the patio doors where you can pull up a chair, pop on your sunnies and relax with a great book. It's also a perfect spot for a late-morning brunch of scrambled eggs, crisp bacon and a mug of strong coffee. Because number 67 is at the end of the terrace, you'll have more garden space than mid-terrace properties - superb if you have little ones who like to play outside, plus a travel cot, high chair and a stair gate are supplied, free of charge, with this apartment, making it one of our most child-friendly cottages.

For bookings of one week or over, we'll pop in a welcome hamper of red wine, Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk and a selection of Cornish biscuits, ready for your arrival.

Number 67 Lower Maen has been awarded a 4 Star Award from Quality in Tourism. You'll have 29 acres of established gardens to explore, plus full use of the leisure facilities.

A £100 deposit against damages is required.

Location

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 sand castle 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 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...

Very enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Venue and location excellent. The only downfall was having to park your car a long way from accommodation. Especially for the elderly.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr Tuffin Many thanks for your comments which are much appreciated. Although we have never had any comments about the location of the car park from 67 Lower Stables, as it is just a short walk away, I appreciate that if you have difficultly in walking, this may be the case. We are glad that you had a good holiday though. Best wishes Julie

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family holiday whilst staying in this cottage. The location is great with wonderful views of the sea and a nice garden area for the children to play in. The pool is is great addition as well as the play area. (Would be lovely if there were ever plans to add a cafe/small bar near the pool.)

The cottage is large and the owners provide a great range of cooking utensils and equipment which was helpful.

My only recommendation would be to update some of the furnishings downstairs as they were looking a little tired.

Overall we loved our holiday here and I'm sure we will be back! Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hello Naomi, We're so pleased you enjoyed your week with us at Maenporth, and we agree it is a great holiday venue for families. A small cafe would be a great idea! I'll pass that on to the estate. I can only apologies for the cleaning issues you experienced, and hope our Sunday re-clean went some way to making things better :-) We have out-sourced our cleaning to Holiday Home Managements in Exeter. I'm sure they would also appreciate your feedback if you wanted to leave them a review. We look forward to welcoming you back to Cornwall in the near future, With all good wishes, Sara

Our holiday

  • 3 of 5

We had a very happy holiday in 67 Lower Maen. The bedrooms were comfortable and light but the sitting room looked very old fashioned and would be hugely improved with two modern sofas and new curtains.

A very comfortable homely property

  • 4 of 5

The welcome pack was a very pleasant surprise containing quality products,not the usual bog standard items ,and was much appreciated.It was a shame there wasn't even the smallest amount of cleaning agent in the bathroom to start off with and it was a it of a shock when the slip mat for the bath disintegrated.However as I always carry one with me on holiday I was able to replace it immediately.I would stay again.

Owner's Response: Hello Valeria, I'm so sorry you had a problem with the bathmat. We'll replace that immediately. We're trying to keep all cleaning materials away from places where children might find them. Were there no cleaning products in high cupboard, or one with a child-proof lock? We're so pleased that you had an otherwise enjoyable stay. With warm wishes, Sara
