Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Mawgan - Glebe Hall Cottages


Attached to a substantial Georgian Coach House, Glebe Hall Cottages is made up of four individual cottages, Clipper, Cutter, Sloop & Schooner and are situated in a terrace, each cottage is set over three levels and are on the edge of the lovely, peaceful village of Mawgan, not far from the Helford, near the market town of Helston, in the South West of Cornwall. Close to the picturesque tidal creeks of the Helford River, the properties are set in two acres of secluded south facing terraced gardens bordered by farmland and the thickly wooded grounds of the historic Trelowarren Estate. Whether you choose to laze beside the heated pool (open End of May to September) or visit over 20 beautiful gardens - Glendurgan, Lost Grdens of Heligan, Trebah, Trevarno, Trelissick etc., walk the wonderful coastal paths or enjoy water sports on the nearby beaches and coves - this area of Cornwall has everything. Each Cottage comes fully equipped and all linen and towels are provided. Just across the lane is the Ship Inn, where you can enjoy great locally produced food.

FRIDAY Change over during peak summer holiday weeks but can be more flexible outside of main summer holiday periods - please contact Ali & Julian to enquire!

FANTASTIC FOR FAMILY & FRIENDS GROUPS: Because the four cottages are arranged together in their own separate courtyard, they are ideal for groups - whether Family or Friends. Groups can have exclusive use of all the communal facilities - Swimming Pool, Children's Play Area and the Beautiful Gardens, while returning to their own cottage space to relax at the end of another exciting day in this fabulous part of part of Cornwall *.

Taking all four cottages together provides nine bedrooms, and four bathrooms and can therefore provide Group accommodation for up to eighteen Adults and/or Children.

Since opening in 2004, Julian and Ali have seen an increase in Group bookings for School Reunions, Wedding

Parties and just regular get togethers of Family Friends - not just for one year, but repeat bookings for two, three and four years.

* Glebe Hall Cottages are in set within an officially designated 'AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY'.

About Julian and Ali Rand

Hello, our names are Julian, Ali & Alex Rand and we live here and run Glebe Hall Cottages as a family business nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Lizard Peninsula. We used to live in the 'rat race' up in Berkshire and decided to make a break for the countryside and start a new life in Cornwall 14 years ago. Since buying Glebe Hall we have made it our job to continually improve facilities and work hard to make sure everything is here for our guests to enjoy. As well as working hard with the property, we also have time for our son, who always enjoys meeting new children each year and welcoming them to Glebe Hall. We like to think that we are friendly, but not invasive and respect our guests privacy. We are on hand if needed but generally leave everyone to come and go as they please. Julian's hat is 'Accounts and Maintenance' and Ali's is 'Front of House and House Keeping'. We have a great team helping us on the busy change over days and try our upmost to present the cottages in a clean and tidy manor. We always hope that if there were anything our guests need, they can approach us. Please read our guests comments to see for yourselves! We hope you enjoy looking at our website and hope that we can accommodate you at some point in the future.

We care about our community and the area in which we live. Julian is chair of governors at our local village school and is involved with many local community projects past and present. Recently, Julian was honoured with an MBE for services to the communities of Helston and Mawgan in the 2014 Queens Birthday Honours List

Julian and Ali Rand purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Julian and Ali Rand chose Lizard Peninsula

It is set in a lovely village within easy reach of local amenities within a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. We are only four miles from the market town of Helston and within a ten minute drive to local beaches and places of interest.

What makes this cottage unique

With four individual cottages set in a terrace with a shared walled secure courtyard, we can provide comfortable accommodation for groups of friends/family wishing to holiday together but being able to have their own privacy within their own cottage.

The heated outdoor swimming pool is a great hit with families or for people wanting to laze by the pool enjoying the peacefulness of the surrounding area.

Easy, relaxing place to stay - Glebe Hall Cottages

  • 4 of 5

Cosy cottage with lovely facilities for kids - pool, trampoline and swings - plus table tennis and DVDs. Ali and Julian were exemplary hosts and very accommodating - and we enjoyed meeting Flick the cat too! Cottage was clean, and beds very comfortable. The dining area is perhaps a little too cosy for 5-6, but everything was there that we needed.

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Have been visiting Glebehall Cottages for more than 10 years and cannot praise it highly enough. Lovely location with fantastic hosts who are so very helpful and friendly. Lots of beautiful places to visit in an unspoilt part of Cornwall - Kynance Cove, Roskilly's, lots of great walks and beaches. The cottages are cosy and well equipped with the benefit of a shared games room (table tennis, table football, etc.) , laundry facilities and a lovely garden with swimming pool. Highly reommended.

Beautiful Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Ali's and Julian's Place. And although the summer was so hot that we tried out all the extraordanary beaches nearby, the kids still used the big swimmingpool quite a lot of times, not to mention the games-room. Great Garden!

Good location for exploring

  • 4 of 5

The property is well situated for being able to explore the Lizard and the far west of Cornwall, was well appointed and comfortable for 4 of us. The village has a well stocked shop with local produce and is just down the road from a good pub with excellent food. We were made to feel very welcome and we all loved the games room and especially the swimming pool which being heated meant we could swim everyday (even the one evening it rained!).

Fantastic holiday

  • 4 of 5

The spacious games room and pool could not be beat and were fully utilised by our three boys. The location is superb with beautiful coastal walks, gardens, beaches and attractions close by. This was our first visit to Cornwall and we can see why it is so popular as a holiday destination.

We were a party of six and stayed in Clipper cottage. Although the property sleeps six, it cannot accomodate dining indoors for six people together at the table due to limited space. Fortunately, most of the weather was fine and we were able to eat outside at the picnic table where there was more room and the added bonus of a bbq which we used often.

The owners Julian and Ali are friendly and accomodating. All in all a great holiday and we would come back again !!

Perfect base for walks in Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

Recently renovated barn in a pastoral setting withing a short drive to spectacular walks on the north and south shores of Cornwall's Lizard and Landsend peninsulas. Well outfitted, comfortably equipped, though only one bathroom for three bedrooms. Delightful conservatory to eat meals when the air is cool, surrounded by well tended gardens, as well as foul from the neighboring farm. The hosts could not be more helpful and friendly.
