About Fiona Hill

My husband and I bought this property just before our first child was born and we have had so many happy family holidays with all three of our children who still love to come down now they are all teenagers - Maenporth really does have something for every age! I now own the property jointly with my three sisters as we wanted our own children to be able to enjoy bringing their families to our lovely holiday home which holds so many happy memories.

Fiona Hill purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Fiona Hill chose Lizard Peninsula

Maenporth is perfectly situated for exploring both the Helford River and the Lizard Peninsula. We always have a day or two over at the stunning beaches of Kynance Cove or Polurrian Bay where the surf is great for body boarding. The Roseland Peninsula is another favourite with children loving the unique King Harry Ferry journey across the river. Falmouth itself is a picturesque and perfectly sized seaside town with a wide variety of shops, galleries and award winning restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

One of Maenporth's best features is the Leisure centre which means that there is always plenty to do even if the weather is not as good as you would hope! Our property is situated in a prime position on the estate offering fantastic sea views from the sofa. We are never short of things to do, whether it be a round of golf, a visit to nearby National Trust properties or just a day at Maenporth beach. Dining at The Cove restaurant is always a highlight of the week and having such a great beach cafe makes all the difference.

You Will Not Be Disappointed, Cosey,Homely & Views

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a holiday in the middle of September and apprehensive about the weather, 95% of the week polo shirt and 15 - 17 degrees.

The description of the property was very accurate, very clean with every thing you could need for a stay away from home. Fiona the owner could not be more helpful, available at all times with information if required and local help just minutes away.

Form the apartment to the swimming pool, sauna etc took all of 30 seconds, amenities here were 1st class.

Down the hill towards the small beach is the Cove restaurant with excellent food, wine and setting. If going for dinner best to book a table.

While I understand holidays are vary for everyone we wanted a base to drive from to visit different places. The apartment for us felt very cosy and homely with the added bonus of having access to our own patio with a place to barbecue, great garden with stunning views. There is so much to see and do reaching most of the lower end of Cornwall in under an hour driving. If you are a golfer then Falmouth Golf Club is just 5 minutes away.

Negatives. Mobile phone coverage is poor especially with O2 and Vodafone, Who cares!!! Orange/EE okay Who cares!! wer'e on holiday.

Great place to stay, give it a go you will not be disappointed.

This Apartment is five star quality.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is excellent from the start of the holiday. Nice touch of a welcome bottle of Champagne .Beautiful views from the 2 bedrooms and the lounge. The furnishings are of very good quality Master bedroom/shower room very comfortable- in fact I wanted to take the bed home with me !Kitchen nicely furnished with all mod cons .The property was very clean and well maintained. Exactly as described.

The owner provided very good customer service.

I would like to recommend this property BUT as we have stayed in this property 4 times already I don`t want it to be booked so much that I can`t book another years holiday!

Excellent appartment in prime location.

  • 5 of 5

An excellent and well equipped appartment, with stunning views across Falmouth bay. The appartment is furnished to a high standard, and is well maintained. It is located within the Maenporth development which is also maintained to a very high standard, and has lots of facilities, including an indoor pool. There are many attractions within 15 minutes or so of the appartment, and the beach itself is just a few minutes walk. The Cove Restaurant, adjacent to Maenporth beach, is outstanding.

Summer Holiday with Family

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment, loved the views. The facilities were as listed and of a high standard. The apartment was clean and very comfortable.

Our children are aged between 6 and 16 years and they all enjoyed the pool, table tennis and beach. We had a relaxing, stress-free break as everything we needed was close by.

We would recommend the apartment to other families.
