About the property

The Courtyard Apartment is a bright spacious apartment with views over the garden and for miles over fields and wooded country. It is close to the sea; the sound of horns of ship leaving Falmouth Harbour can be heard, and it is walking distance to the Creek's edge at Restronguet. The large garden attracts numerous birds and there are chickens, pigs and horses in the vicinity. There is a grass tennis court, which you are welcome to use and ample parking for cars and boats. Mylor Village offers a well stocked village general store, a butcher, fish shop, post office, newsagent, doctor, dentist, beauty salon and hairdresser as well as a popular village pub, the Lemon Arms. Mylor Yacht Harbour is 10 minutes drive away, for sailing and restaurants and cafes and the Pandora Pub is a 15 minute walk from the apartment. The north coast surfing beaches are approximately 25-30 minutes drive, however Falmouth's beaches are 15 minutes away.

About Mr Patrick Polglase

Pen and Patrick Polglase moved back from Australia to Cornwall 15 years ago, to Albion House, where they live with their four children, on a small holding, which is adjacent to the Courtyard Aparment and Little Albion Cottage. Patrick grew up in Mylor, Pen in Sydney.

Mr Patrick Polglase purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Mr Patrick Polglase chose Mylor

We moved back to Cornwall in 2000 from Sydney Australia because we love Mylor and Cornwall. Both places are very special, but with a good wetsuit the beaches and waves 25 minutes north are like Australia! (a little bit cooler)

Add the the range of walks, heritage sites, and activities including beautiful gardens, castles, villages, food and drink as well as the sailing, ferry trips and all that can be done down here in Cornwall, too numerous to mention. We love the whole Eden project philosophy thing too.

What makes this apartment unique

Mylor won a community village of the year accolade a few years ago for its pubs, shops, post office, sailing facilities and school and is a lovely base for exploring Cornwall by car or boat.

The Cottage has a private courtyard with a barbeque and table & chairs and ample parking. It has use of a larger shared garden with children's play equipment and a grass tennis court.

Your welcome to Little Albion Cottage includes a Cornish Cream tea and freshly picked flowers from our garden. We can also provide freshly laid eggs from our chickens on request.
