About the property

Cottage in Stithians, near Falmouth, Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk Across The Fields To The Village

Self-contained stone cottage, tucked away down a country lane but with easy access to the village (pub, shop) and the bustling towns of Falmouth, Truro, and Helston. North and South coast beaches 20 minutes drive. There are lovely countryside walks from the front door and the owner's huge garden to explore. The open-plan kitchen and sitting room has exposed beams and a coal effect gas fire, and there is a beautiful view from the bedroom window.

The owners have a huge rambling garden, which you are welcome to explore. The more formal garden with flower beds and lawn leads on to a shady spinney and then on to an acre of woodland with glorious views over the rolling countryside.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Excellent cottage, very comfortable, but it is tucked away down very narrow roads and the walk to the pub is across 3 fields and tricky after dark! The owner is lovely and a cream tea was waiting for us on arrival. Picturesque location and we would certainly return,

Lovely cottage, well equipped and great location

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. Very comfortable, well equipped cottage and ideally situated to travel to all parts of Cornwall, which we did! Great place to relax and chill out after a busy day sightseeing. Lovely pub with great food just a short walk away. Would definitely stay again if we holiday again in Cornwall.

Would recommend

Excellent travel directions led us to a warm welcome at a peaceful and secluded little cottage perfect for two.Comfortable furniture and bed with plenty of storage available. Nice countryside views from the bedroom window. Would recommend Godrevy beach,Cape Cornwall,Falmouth boat trips and St Ives using the park and train from Lelant.

Special interest holidays:

Writing holidays; I am a writer and editor, and am able to offer an editing and critiquing service for anyone who has come to The Cottage in order to escape from the distractions of daily life and concentrate on their writing. I will encourage, suggest changes, provide inspiration and help you get that book/story/article written. I read very quickly, charge £8 an hour and am available to help and encourage you as much or as little as you like!


The Falmouth beaches (Gyllyngvase, Swanpool) on the South Coast are 20 minutes drive away. The more dramatic North Coast beaches, with their wonderful clifftop walks (Perranporth, Portreath, Chapelporth, Trevaunance) are 20 -30 minutres drive away. There are also miles and miles of sand to enjoy at Gwithian and Newquay (30 minutes). You really are spoilt for choice!


Newquay airport 40 minutes drive

Plymouth (ferry from France) 90 minutes drive

Railway (Redruth) 15 minutes drive

Use of car recommended


The village of Stithians is a 10 minute stroll across 3 fields (a 3 minute drive), and has a shop, post office and pub.

The delightful seaside town of Falmouth is 6 miles, and the cathedral city of Truro is 8 miles.

The famous Eden project is an hour's drive, as are Land's End and the Lizard

Further Details:

The village shop is open 7.30 - 9 Mon to Sat, 8.30 - 6 on Sundays. I leave details in the cottage of the many supermarkets nearby - Sainsburys and Tesco in Truro and Falmouth, Asda in Penryn, Tesco in Redruth, etc.

I also recommend my favourite restaurants, some of them very local, others a little further afield. If you like seafood, Falmouth is definitely the place to go!
