About Fiona Hill

My husband and I bought this property just before our first child was born and we have had so many happy family holidays with all three of our children who still love to come down now they are all teenagers - Maenporth really does have something for every age! I now own the property jointly with my three sisters as we wanted our own children to be able to enjoy bringing their families to our lovely holiday home which holds so many happy memories.

Fiona Hill purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Fiona Hill chose Lizard Peninsula

Maenporth is perfectly situated for exploring both the Helford River and the Lizard Peninsula. We always have a day or two over at the stunning beaches of Kynance Cove or Polurrian Bay where the surf is great for body boarding. The Roseland Peninsula is another favourite with children loving the unique King Harry Ferry journey across the river. Falmouth itself is a picturesque and perfectly sized seaside town with a wide variety of shops, galleries and award winning restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

One of Maenporth's best features is the Leisure centre which means that there is always plenty to do even if the weather is not as good as you would hope! Our property is situated in a prime position on the estate offering fantastic sea views from the sofa. We are never short of things to do, whether it be a round of golf, a visit to nearby National Trust properties or just a day at Maenporth beach. Dining at The Cove restaurant is always a highlight of the week and having such a great beach cafe makes all the difference.

Relaxing home from home

We had a fantastic stay in Maenporth. The apartment was perfect and Fiona was great to deal with (even arranging to post our son's cuddly toys that were left behind!). The apartment was spotless and extremely well equipped with everything we needed.

Superb holiday home with something for the whole family.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday. Whilst travelling from London to this region is always challenging, locating the place was quite straightforward. There are lots of supermarkets and shops along the way to purchase everything we required for our stay.

The flat was very clean and had everything we were expecting including toys and board games for the kids to play. The Wi fi also came in handy. The best thing in the flat was the stunning views and there was enough garden space as well.

The leisure centre which was a very short walk from flat had friendly and helpful staff. All facilities were well maintained. There were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained even when the weather was bad

The area itself had of attractions with Maenporth beach being the highlight. We had lots of fun on sunny days and my daughter enjoyed Kayaking. We hired these from the beach. We also manged to visit the lost gardens of Heligan which was about a 40mins drive. Pendennis Castle was a hit with the whole family were there were lots of medieval activities on display the day we visited it. There were also many excellent restaurants and we enjoyed lots of local dishes and the seafood was delicious.

Finally, I would like to thank Fiona who was very patience and helpful with all queries we had before and after making the booking. It made the whole experience a pleasant one. Overall it was one of the best Holidays we had in the UK.

You Will Not Be Disappointed, Cosey,Homely & Views

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a holiday in the middle of September and apprehensive about the weather, 95% of the week polo shirt and 15 - 17 degrees.

The description of the property was very accurate, very clean with every thing you could need for a stay away from home. Fiona the owner could not be more helpful, available at all times with information if required and local help just minutes away.

Form the apartment to the swimming pool, sauna etc took all of 30 seconds, amenities here were 1st class.

Down the hill towards the small beach is the Cove restaurant with excellent food, wine and setting. If going for dinner best to book a table.

While I understand holidays are vary for everyone we wanted a base to drive from to visit different places. The apartment for us felt very cosy and homely with the added bonus of having access to our own patio with a place to barbecue, great garden with stunning views. There is so much to see and do reaching most of the lower end of Cornwall in under an hour driving. If you are a golfer then Falmouth Golf Club is just 5 minutes away.

Negatives. Mobile phone coverage is poor especially with O2 and Vodafone, Who cares!!! Orange/EE okay Who cares!! wer'e on holiday.

Great place to stay, give it a go you will not be disappointed.
