Little Roskymer

A spacious attached cottage for two, equipped with quality and comfort in mind. Found in the countryside just two miles from the Helford creek-side village of Gweek and four miles from Helston. The creeks, coves, fishing villages and pretty harbours are what the Lizard Peninsula is well-known for, and Little Roskymer is perfectly placed to enjoy them all.

Nearby Helston has a range of shops and takeaways, a few minutes further is Porthleven with a fine choice of well-known restaurants, including Rick Stein’s, all set around the picturesque harbour. Falmouth with its famous docks, marina and cobbled shopping streets is about half an hour’s drive away, and the cathedral city of Truro just a little further.

This delightful all on one level cottage is set well back from the road, up a private driveway and is separated from the adjoining house by a large link hall, providing visitors with a completely private, well-furnished and welcoming "home away from home".

Enter from the hallway, with hooks and shoe rack, into the beech-fitted kitchen. There's an electric oven with 4-ring hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, microwave, slow cooker, kettle and toaster as well as storage space.

Through to the spacious oak-floored living/dining room, with a leather sofa and reclining armchair, TV/DVD, stereo radio/CD player and a dining table and chairs. The French Doors open onto the one-acre garden.

The bedroom has versatile zip & link beds, providing either a super king-size, or two full size singles by prior request. There's also plenty of storage in the wardrobe, chest of drawers and bedside tables. The bathroom has a double size shower, handbasin, loo and a heated towel rail. (A perching stool for the shower and loo rails are available on request).

The terraced garden has outdoor furniture to take advantage of this sunny plot, and a charcoal Weber barbecue. The cottage has easy level access, suitable for wheelchairs too, with secure off-road parking immediately outside and ramp access at both external doors (also outside power points, ideal for mobility scooters).

Rental includes: Oil-fired central heating, electricity, bedlinen, towels and WiFi. A welcome package of groceries is provided on arrival. Short breaks (min 4 nights) in Spring, Autumn and Winter. Regret No Smoking and no children under 16. House-trained dogs are very welcome, and the owners friendly dogs will be happy to share their garden with them!

Ideally located with easy access to The Lizard, Falmouth, Truro, The Roseland, St Ives, Penzance and the far west. Little Roskymer has been operating as a holiday let for a number of years and visitors have often commented on how much there is to easily explore from the cottage.
