Relax and enjoy the spectacular views of woodland and rural views from this holiday property.

The Old Smithy is a deceptively spacious and very comfortable detached holiday property, sitting in the gorgeous hamlet of Penelewey on the outskirts of Feock, in a prestigious creek side location. The area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with woodland and rural views. The cathedral city of Truro with theatre, cinema, great shopping, and an abundance of restaurants, cafés and bars is a 5-minute drive.

The cottage is on the road to the King Harry ferry, linking Feock to the Roseland Peninsula. Visit St Mawes with Henry VII Castle overlooking Carrick Roads, the famous Fal River and Estuary, and Pendennis Castle which is on the Falmouth Peninsula. Falmouth, The National Maritime Museum, is just a short 15-minute drive with its busy port and harbour, bustling marinas, and is host to numerous prestigious sailing and yachting events. Foodies love Falmouth, as it is home to many famous fish restaurants, great bars and cafés dotted along the marina. Events Square has many alfresco dining areas and stages high profile events throughout the year.

Take one of the ferries or water taxis to visit St Mawes, Flushing or the picturesque Helford River. Go on a wildlife safari to watch dolphins, basking sharks, seals and an abundance of marine wildlife. The area is great for golfers, walkers, sailors, water sports enthusiasts, or those seeking a relaxing holiday, soaking up some of Cornwall’s best beaches, including the award-winning Gyllyngvase Beach at Falmouth.

The Old Smithy is perfectly located for exploring many hidden delights, including Loe Beach, ideal for kayaking, canoeing and sailing. The area boasts some of the UK’s best sub-tropical gardens, including Trelissick Gardens, which is just a mile down the road, or Trebah and Durgan, which are located close to the Helford River. The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also within easy driving distance.

There is a quintessential English pub just a short stroll away, which serves excellent local food and ale. The nearby creek side village of Devoran also offers great pubs and restaurants. The famous cycle trail runs from Devoran on the south coast to Portreath on the north coast. Bike hire is available locally. Shop ½ mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    We had a fabulous holiday at The Old Smithy. The property is even better than the photos! We spent New Years week here and loved it. Our son and his partner came for a few days and there was plenty of room for the 4 of us. The master bedroom is great, but be wary of the sloping ceilings....we banged our heads a few hubby especially😳🤭. We loved the location, we could walk down 4 doors to go to the pub when we didn’t feel like cooking or pop into the supermarket on our way back from our outings and cook an easy dinner. We walked many different routes from the cottage for our exercise and saw lots of lovely enclaves, villages and scenery. Took the car ferry and visited St Mawes which was gorgeous, also Mevagissey was lovely too. Did another day trip to the southern most part of Cornwall albeit Land’s End was a disappointment but St Ives was lovely. Overall great place to base yourself to explore all of Cornwall. Only negative was everything was turned off and unplugged when we arrived.

    Beautiful house extremely well equipped, sun trap garden, good position for enjoying local beaches and towns. second double bedroom not as luxurious as the upstairs so you may have to toss a coin!! Had wonderful two weeks and for once the sun shone nearly every day
