About Mr John Munk

We live and work in Bristol and have busy city lives. We have a teenage daughter and two sons whom no longer live at home. We sold a bolt hole in France to invest in our 'little bit of heaven', in Cornwall, April Cottage!!

When we saw the cottage we knew it would suit everyone for what they wanted from a break from work or home, different from the cottage in France! We spend as much time as possible at April Cottage and find we relax as soon as we arrive and book our favourite fish restaurant, where you choose from the catch of that day with hunks of fresh soft bread to soak up the juices!

We spend hours sitting on the terrace soaking up the views and the activity around the harbour. We also have a house in Slovenia, that is absolutely brilliant for Family summer and winter holidays; if you are interested, do call me or visit "think Slovenia" click onto Mountains and Lakes, then" Gorska Hisa. You will find all you need to know about the property and location.

Mr John Munk purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Mr John Munk chose Truro & Falmouth area

We had been searching for a property but none had the magic of April Cottage. We were transfixed by the views of boats bobbing in the water, the harbour and the little ferries as they hurried in all directions to a vast array of destinations. The steps down to the property afforded privacy and peace to enjoy the views without interruption. We loved the cottage and knew we could make improvements to make it a perfect relaxing, get away destination.

We thought the cottage offered tranquillity away from the road and yet it is a stones throw from the cobbled High Street of Falmouth with its' limited traffic and numerous little shops, bars, restaurants, art galleries, and festival events in Millennium square, especially, for my teenage daughter who enjoys her independence around the town.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy sitting with a glass of wine and having a barbecue on the front terrace soaking up the views until it is dark and the lights twinkle on the water from the harbour and village of Flushing across the estuary. And none of those muddy estuaries to look out on when the tide is out!! During the summer, at least twice a week, you can watch sailing races right in front of the cottage; very colourful.

We like being able to park our car and then take little ferries/boats/buses/trains to a vast array of different destinations including, St Mawes on the Roseland Penninsular, known for its' beauty, Truro, the beautiful Georgian city, Smugglers Cove, picturesque pubs up the Helford River, local sandy beaches, safer and smaller with the beach cafés serving delicious food or, across to the larger rugged and dramatic north coast surfing beaches.

It's the cosiness of the fires during those winter months after an invigorating beach walk & picnics till late in summer at the beach.

April Cottage home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at this beautiful cottage. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped. We were very lucky with the weather and ate our breakfast on the terrace taking in the stunning view. The cottage is very cosy and furnished to a high standard. We hardly used our car because little ferries are available to Flushing and St Mawes to name but a few. We did a lovely walk around the peninsula from Flushing, stopping at Pandora's Inn for lunch on the jetty. We will definitely be back! Many thanks.

Lovely property beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Great week spent at April Cottage, extremely comfortable and well equipped, with such stunning views.

Everything close at hand with boat trips to most areas within the vicinity, therefore, no need to use the car unless going further afield.

Dinner at the Star & Garter a must.

Looking forward to a return trip.

We had a fabulous holiday at your cottage.

It was spotlessly clean and well decorated.

The position was great for the town centre

and the views from the terrace were great.

All in all , a most enjoyable holiday that will

be remembered for a long time.

We will definitely return.
