About Beach Cottage

A traditional stone cottage just a few metres from the shores of the Helford Estuary.

It’s hard to imagine a position more perfect for a holiday home than Beach Cottage. The pretty stone building with dormer windows in its slate roof sits right above the beach, only a few metres from the water’s edge. Inside, sounds of the sea echo through its bright and airy rooms. 

Enjoy a morning stroll along the beach before wandering a further mile and half to Glenduragn Garden. Discover the large unusual garden, with plenty of activities and trails to explore.

Head 20 miles away from the cottage and you’ll reach the Godolphin estate. This grand, sweeping estate is home to acres of parkland and a stunning manor house.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
