National Trust Holiday Cottage

For guests looking for a tranquil unspoiled setting, Carne Cottage is a delightful, detached, traditional cob cottage with a stable door and the local speciality Manaccan plum growing up its front wall. The cottage sits in a beautiful location near the head of the lovely Gillan Creek, just to the south of Helford. Gillan Creek is approximately a mile long, and you can walk its entire length along the lane to St Anthony, then out to Dennis Head at the creek’s mouth - it is a walk of pure joy. The area is a walkers and wildlife haven with a pretty garden adjacent to the cottage, with a stream running through it.
The delightful village of Manaccan, with its pub, shop and restaurant is half a mile away. Hire a motor or sailing boat during the summer season from nearby St Anthony, or explore the Lizard Peninsula, the most southerly point of the UK, with small quiet coves, beaches, tiny villages and quaint harbours. The area is one of Cornwall’s secret gems.
Visit Kynance Cove, Coverack and Mullion, or head south to Porthleven, Marazion and Penzance. Falmouth is 40 minutes away with its busy port and prestigious marinas. The town also offers shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and art galleries, and is also home to the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle. Garden lovers will be spoilt for choice as the area has a number of sub-tropical gardens including Glendurgan and Trelissick. The historic town of Helston is famous for its Flora Day and Floral Dance in May each year. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
