About Gill Fine
My family are Cornish and I moved to Cornwall 5 years ago .Its a fantastic place to live -beautiful scenery,great food and a lovely community .
Why Gill Fine chose Mawnan
I spent many days at Maenporth as a child and love the coastal path walk from Falmouth to Maenporth . The walk is an easy coastal path with stunning scenery and The Cove Restaurant is one of my favourite outside eating places .Maenporth is a lovely sandy cove popular with families as it is ideal for sunbathing and rock pooling .
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is bright and airy but always feels cosy even on a winter's day due to the underfloor heating -even in the bathrooms ! I like the open plan living with its wooden floors and the modern kitchen with granite worktops . Most of all I enjoy the views of Falmouth Bay from the field just across the road and the superb coastal and rural paths right on the doorstep .

A great apartment. Super
One of the best places we had. Comfortable and clean.
This property had everything you could need for an enjoyable stay. It was a short walk to Maenporth beach and the wonderful Cove Restaurant.
Gill the owner was friendly and welcoming and gave us good tips on walks, beaches and restaurants.
Great location if you’re fit.
Lovely flat in beautiful location. Fortunately there was a blue badge bay next to the building as I, a person with mobility issues, would have found the extremely steep car park quite problematic. The approach to the car park should be treated with great caution, as should the local roads.
I was delighted to hear that June enjoyed staying in my apartment but concerned about her comments about the parking. I explained to her before her stay that there was a communal Badge Space available on a 'first come -first served basis ' so was glad she was able to use it throughout her holiday .There is certainly a slope in the carpark but it is not 'extremely steep' and none of my previous guests with mobility issues have mentioned any problems. However to help any future guests , I have added a photo to show the layout of the car parking and communal spaces . I fully agree that care should be taken when driving along all the local roads in Cornwall.
Super apartment and Gill the owner was very helpful.
So glad you enjoyed your stay -I look forward to seeing you again
Clean, well equipped apartment in a great location
We had a short break at Easter here with our two children aged 3 and 6, and the flat was ideal. Super clean and very well equipped - everything thought of which made holidaying with young children very easy! Things like buckets and spades, the utility room, a washer-dryer all so useful. And lovely touch to have tea and hot cross buns left. The beach at Maenporth is so easy to get to, and we really enjoyed the coastal walk to Swanpool - and the fab cafe with quirky ice creams and a bouncy castle! The leisure centre in falmouth provided entertainment on a very stormy day, and there was plenty left to explore.
Many thanks for your lovely feedback -good to hear the whole family enjoyed their stay
Modern and spacious apartment in a nice spot
We went to Cornwall to attend a wedding so had very little time to explore the area. The apartment itself is indeed very well located to the beach, very spacious and very well equipped. We had a very pleasant stay over there and could really feel that we were looked after by Gill. Thanks
So glad you had a lovely time ...many thanks for your lovely feedback . Hope to see you all again. Regards Gill
