Merlin Cottage

Merlin Cottage is a recent barn conversion, situated near Gweek, just two miles from Helston. It is ideally located for exploring the Lizard Peninsula while still giving easy access to the rest of West Cornwall including Falmouth, Penzance, St Ives and Land's End.

Gweek itself has a tidal creek that leads to the Helford River and as well as a post office and general store there is a well renowned restaurant pub, The Black Swan.  Just two miles away is the famous market town of Helston which still has a weekly farmers market as well as its many shops, pubs, restaurants and even a cinema. On the outskirts of town there is a Tesco and a Sainsbury's.

There is plenty of walking available right from the cottage front door with footpaths and bridleways leading cross country, or a short car journey will take you to the coast at Gunwalloe where you can walk for miles in either direction with breathtaking cliff top views.

Entering through the front door, you will note the cottage is furnished to a high standard. There's a large open plan lounge, kitchen dining area with feature vaulted ceiling. The kitchen area includes an electric oven and ceramic hob, fridge with ice box, slim line dishwasher and microwave. The lounge has 2 sofas, LCD TV with built-in freeview and a DVD player and freeview. Double doors open up to your private patio and garden area with a gate to the field beyond, which you're welcome to explore.

Twin room with two x 3' single beds, bedside table and lamp and wardrobe. Bathroom with bath, matching toilet and handbasin, shaver point, separate shower cubicle with mixer shower and a heated towel rail.

The large cupboard in the hall, houses the washing machine.

There's a double en suite room with 4'6'' double bed, bedside tables and lamps, dressing table and wardrobe. En suite shower room with toilet, matching handbasin with mirror over, shaver point, heated towel rail and large shower cubicle with powerful mixer shower. 

Merlin Cottage is centrally heated and has its own parking space. Garden furniture is provided and electricity, heating and Wifi are all included in the price.

Being close to the public viewing enclosure at RNAS Culdrose you may well see and hear the helicopters and training jets as they land and take off. However they generally exercise over the coast and rarely fly at night. Also on site and attached to this property is 'Hawk Cottage' (See property 540). The owners live in a detached house across the courtyard and are available if needed.
