Marconi's Reach

Originally built in 1920 to accommodate Guglielmo Marconi’s engineers working at the nearby Poldhu wireless station. Marconi’s Reach is a detached bungalow which has been refurbished to a very high standard, set 320 metres down a no-through way private lane. Follow the lane just a few hundred metres more and you’ll reach the cliff tops between the coves of Poldhu and Polurrian, with both sandy beaches being just a 10 minute walk and the South West Coast Path heading off in either direction.

The beach at Poldhu is great for surfing, has seasonal lifeguards, a popular café and a large pay & display car park if needed. Polurrian is a little more secluded but also has a fabulous beach which backs up against the cliff face. These beaches are only a 10 minute walk from the cottage but for guests who enjoy longer walks along the coastal path, Kynance Cove is approximately 3 hours to the south and Lizard Point about 4 hours, or to the north Porthleven is around 2 hours walk. There are truly stunning views and top destinations in all directions! Mullion village centre is only one mile away, with its pubs and shops, whilst the market town of Helston is just 10 minutes by car for a range of eateries and supermarkets.

A spacious hallway runs the length of the cottage with all rooms off, inside the front door are hooks for coats and a boot rack for wellies. At one end of the cottage is a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. The kitchen is fully furnished with all that guests will need, including a microwave, oven, hob, American style fridge/freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. A dining table with 6 chairs is set close to the sliding patio door, perfect for inviting in the fresh sea air or enjoying sunsets at dinnertime. The lounge area offers comfortable seating, Smart TV & DVD player and wireless internet is available throughout. From this room you can look out across the garden, over the field beyond and out to sea.

The main bedroom features sea views, a super king-size bed, en suite shower room and large patio doors which open onto the patio at the rear of the property.

The second bedroom also has a super king-size bed (can be separated to make twin beds) and a sliding patio door to the rear patio. Views over the back garden.

Bedroom three is for children only, it has bunk beds, storage drawers and clothes hooks.

The family bathroom is equipped with both a bath and a separate shower enclosure, matching toilet and handbasin, heated towel rail.

Outdoors, there’s a paved driveway at the front with ample space for two cars. The front lawn wraps around the side of the cottage and then spreads out across the back garden. A large patio extends all along the back of the cottage with outdoor seating where you can enjoy the privacy of the garden and the views of the sea around Mullion Island.

Rental includes bedlinen, towels and utilities. Centrally heated. Unlimited wireless internet is provided. No pets and no smoking please.

Short Breaks available, please select under 'Duration' on the search facility or call 01326 240 333. The owners of Marconi’s Reach also have another high quality holiday cottage about 200 metres down the lane, see ‘Woodley’s Cottage’, which sleeps up to 4.
