About the property

Menifters Holiday Cottages

Situated just 1 mile from the coast the cottages look out over unspoilt farmland with beautiful views towards the sea where boats can be seen in Falmouth Bay. The cottages, which have been converted from a 200 year old Cornish barn are set in gardens and paddock of 5 acres.

Each cottage is fully equipped for all your self catering needs.and there is a laundry room. There are no additional charges for heating or electricity. We do ask that you bring your personal towels.

There are 2 one bedroom cottages that have a double bedroom and en-suite bathroom for 2 people. The 2 bedroom cottages will sleep 4 people.

We regret no pets allowed

Porthallow Cove is just over a mile away and a footpath takes you down to this small seaside village. Porthallow has a pub which provides lunchtime and evening meals. 2 miles away is St Keverne which has a post office, shops, 2 pubs and a restaurant. Menifters is also situated just 4 miles from Helford river.

Menifters are no smoking cottages

A rural location: This part of Cornwall offers the opportunity to get away from the crowds and traffic. It is a rural community and you are as likely to meet a tractor on the lanes as another car. There are no high rise flats and hotels in this area and the many footpaths offer the chance to truly find peace and tranquility. From Menifters you can walk to Porthallow Cove in 25 minutes from where you can join the coastal path, Porthallow is the mid point of the South West Coastal path.

Please see our web site for more information and special offers

Helford: We are 4 miles from Helford village, a small and beautiful Hamlet situated on the Helford River. The navigable river goes inland as far as Gweek and his stretch is characterised with steeply wooded hills and Creeks, most of which can be explored on foot and many by car.

From Helford you can take the Passenger Ferry Boat across the river to Helford Passage. A two mile walk from here will take you to the delightful and exotic gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan.

Porthallow Cove

In our lovely new village hall on the beach, there is a film night (all welcome) every second Monday of the month:

Charming, peaceful & great value for money.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful break last week - we all had a fabulous time and managed to enjoy so much of lovely Cornwall from your handy yet tucked away location.

The Hayloft was so nicely presented and maintained, it felt like we were the first people to stay. The children had plenty of space to explore your garden, and it was great to sit out and enjoy the peace and quiet after a busy day sightseeing!

Tolle Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten erstmals unsere Ferien in Cornwall und waren total begeistert.

Die Unterkunft ist sehr zu empfehlen. Es ist alles da was man benötigt und die totale Ruhe zum Entspannen. Die nähere und weitere Umgebung ist sehenswert, ob zu Fuß oder mit dem Auto.

Vielen lieben Dank an Wendy und ihrem Mann für die schöne Zeit!

Good price for Cornwall.

  • 3 of 5

Not a bad location for LIzard, very relaxing and overall we had a good time.

If its no mod -cons you are looking for, this is the place and it reflects it in the price.

Housekeeping wasn't up to much....

Would we go back....Yes I think we would

Nice and pleasant stay at the Hayloft on Mennifters

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice and pleasant stay at the Hayloft on Mennifters. The directions were good to prevent us from driving too much on the small roads into the Lizard peninsula. Mennifters is an ideal place when you want to walk on the east side of the peninsula. The coast path is easy to reach. The Hayloft cottage has a good view on Falmouth bay.

Herrliche Ruhe...

  • 4 of 5

Unsere Wohnung (Cartlodge) im vorderen Teil war komfortabel eingerichtet, sauber und es fehlte an nichts. Die Küche war etwas klein, aber es war alles vorhanden was wir benötigten. Eine sehr ruhige Umgebung, daher ist ein Auto von Vorteil, will man bspw. die herrlichen Strände der Umgebung erkunden. Auch zum Einkaufen oder zum hiesigen Pub benötigt man ein Auto. Zum Meer führt ein sehr schöner Spaziergang durch die Natur, am dortigen Strand herrschen allerdings nicht die besten Badebedingungen (sehr steinig). Alles in allem können wir die Unterkunft weiterempfehlen. Nette Vermieter.
