About Carne Cottage

A fine example of a traditional cob cottage, set on a winding creek off the Helford River.

Stay on the banks of a winding Gillan Creek in this beautifully preserved cob cottage. Local speciality, the Manaccan Plum, climb its white-washed walls and a sturdy barn door leads you into its rustic interior. Low-beamed ceilings, a log-burner and slate floors are met by elegant furnishings and two spacious bedrooms upstairs. Its garden, just across the road from the cottage, has a gentle stream running through it. 

You’ll be just south of the Helford River and a mile out to the sea; just follow the creek, along the lane to St Anthony and then a footpath out to Dennis Head at the creek's mouth. The nearby village of Manaccan, is just a 20 minute walk from Carne Cottage. 

Be sure to visit nearby Helston. Famous for the Furry Dance, held at the beginning of May for their annual Flora day, a celebration of the start of spring. Throughout the year however, this lovely town has lots to offer.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
