Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Lizard Peninsula - Tremorna

Ancient fisherman's cottage with secluded creekside garden

Tremorna is a beautiful, ancient fisherman's cottage perched above Helford Creek, with its own secluded garden and private water frontage. It is superbly positioned with wonderful views from almost every room down the Helford estuary.

It sits in the centre of the village, yards from shop and pub, yet has a hidden terraced garden with a large private water frontage with steps down to a private quay, accessible by boat at high tide, and with direct access to the shore. The garden is a lovely secret spot to watch the ever-changing panorama of the river estuary, with a summer house an easy-facing terrace overlooking the creek – perfect for sunny breakfasts.

The cottage has three double bedrooms, one of which has a double bed, the other two singles each. Downstairs there is a kitchen and a spacious sitting room with a glorious open fire and thick cob walls.

Tremorna has a great air of peace and calm about it. It has been a holiday home for our family for five decades. We welcome guests who appreciate a cottage of great character in a stunning and totally unspoilt location, with access to one of Europe's most ecologically rich and beautiful estuaries.

We invite you to explore the Helford River, all its remote creeks, coves, woods and cliffs.

- Sleeps 6 in one double and two twin bedrooms (one of which has beds which can be linked into a double).

- Beds are made up with 100% cotton bed linen for guests' arrival.

- Large drum washing machine/dryer, TV, DVD, wifi and microwave.

- Off-lane parking for two cars.

- Large garden with beach access, summer house and terrace overlooking creek.

- Garden offers bench, table and chairs plus trees and lawn with steps to quay and beach.

- Sizable kitchen with dining area, plus spacious sitting room with open fire.

- Used by current owners, children and grandchildren as holiday home for 50 years.

- Mooring available subject to agreement.

Tremorna is superbly placed for walking and boating around the Helford River. With its water frontage and views, it is in one of the most desirable locations in the whole of the village of Helford.

The Helford River itself is a magical and totally unspoiled location for sailing, boating, walking, swimming and general outdoor relaxation.

The famous gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are a short ferry ride away, and sand and shingle beaches, woods and cliffs are minutes away by footpath or boat. The whole of the glorious Lizard peninsula lies within about 20 minutes' car journey.

Homely cottage in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

A cosy riverside cottage in Helford village, we experienced some wild weather during our stay but the cottage provided a welcome retreat after exploring the local area. A lovely homely feel and a creekside location means there's always something to catch your attention. The local pub has a splendid ambience and the food is fabulous!

A charming, relaxing and cosy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this holiday so much we didn't want to leave. Helford will always hold happy memories for us. There were 7 of us altogether staying at the cottage and there was plenty of room. The beds were extremely comfortable ensuring a good nights sleep, but then the fresh air and the cosiness of an open fire helped with that.

The separate garden was an added luxury. We did manage to sit in it on our last evening with a glass of wine soaking up the magnificent views.

The local pub is charming and very friendly. They had a Caribbean night the night we arrived but we decided to stay in by the fire. We wish we had of gone after we heard what a brilliant night everyone had.

We highly recommended this cottage for a quiet chill out holiday. It's definitely a magical cottage to come and recharge your batteries.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay...the cottage was so nice ... clean and pretty... and fitted my husband and I, my sister and four kids perfectly...

we even brought the dog which was a bonus...

The garden was so so beautiful...we could sit and watch the birds and swans..have our coffee or wine...delightful.

There was a shop a minute away and a lovely welcoming pub a few mins away that cooked great food and welcomed the kids.

We had a great short break.. relaxing and peaceful...and safe for the children too... as they explored...We all wished we had booked to stay longer!!!

Thank you so much
