Blackthorn Cottage is a delightful, spacious, cosy and comfortable, single-storey barn conversion with high ceilings, sky lights and solid wood floors, and is perfect for a relaxing holiday.
This is a peaceful location with easy access to miles of coastal paths and some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches including Swan Pool Beach, the beautiful sheltered beach at Maenporth cove and Gyllingvase white sandy beach with crystal clear waters. There are beach cafes, restaurants and fish restaurants, and water sports are available on many of the beaches.
The main bustling town and harbours of Falmouth is just minutes away, with its prestigious marinas attracting some of the world’s leading racing yachts and ocean going vessels. The port of Falmouth is the third deepest natural harbour in the world. The town has an excellent choice of restaurants, bistros, tea rooms, cafés and pubs. Events Square is home to the National Maritime Museum with various events throughout the year, including the lively Sea Shanty week, Oyster Festival and food and music festivals.
Falmouth has a multi screen cinema, theatre, bowling, golf course and cycle hire with a number of old tram line cycle trails running from the south coast across to the north coast.
Take the train from Falmouth to the cathedral city of Truro to experience great shops, markets, cinema and theatre with a great selection of restaurants and pubs serving great food.
Water taxis will take you across the estuary to St Mawes and the riverside village of Flushing, or take one of the local boats to explore the beautiful River Helford and creeks. Enjoy a thrilling Sea Safari to watch dolphins, basking sharks, seals and much more.
Visit the beautiful sub tropical gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick, or discover many National Trust and English Heritage properties including Pendennis Castle with its twin St Mawes Castle across the estuary.
The area is perfect for exploring south Cornwall, the stunning coves and pretty villages on the Lizard Peninsula, and the rugged north coast, popular with surfers. Shops and pub 2 miles, restaurant 1 mile.
Enjoyed the week in the cottage - clean on arrival - welcome pack on arrival. Would recommend this cottage and would go back when next in Falmouth. Very comfortable
Nice cottage, comfortable bedrooms and great location for exploring Cornwall. Could do with a new sofa in the lounge as not very comfy, and was sometimes quite a strong smell of dogs in the lounge which was a little off putting. Overall great cottage, could just do with a new sofa and a deep clean!
Good location for sightseeing in this part of Cornwall
A few things weren't working. Plus grass in the garden needed cutting. These little things make a huge difference.
Great location, nice cottage with great facilities. The only issue was the cleanliness. Cobwebs everywhere! In the shower, in the bedrooms, kitchen...not the owners fault but needs a deep clean before we go back. Could also invest in some comfortable pillows!
Lovely cottage/Barn very clean would definitely recommend and go back, had a lovely time.
The cottage was everything we could have wished for - very well presented and well equipped. Feels very spacious, although the lounge area is a little small, for just two of us it was great. The garden is perfect, our dog definitely enjoyed being outside in the sunshine when it finally arrived. The location is ideal for exploring this area of Cornwall. We love Falmouth so it's perfect for visiting there and also close enough to relatives on The Lizard for plenty of catch-up time. All in all excellent. Already checking for next year.
Our stay September, 2019
