Penvounder, Manaccan, Helford, Cornwall, England



Updated: 10-Sep-2016
Bungalow in Manaccan, 15 min walk to Helford includes FREE Easter boat ride on the Helford

Penvounder is ideally situated in close proximity to the beautiful Helford and has outstanding walks though wooded creeks and coastal footpaths. The property sleeps 8 and has 4 bedrooms, one with en-suite. It is nestled in the heart of Manaccan, tucked away down a short lane off the road. It has enclosed gardens and is set in this peaceful, beautiful, yet relatively undiscovered part of Cornwall and just a short walk to the Helford. A large patio ideal for barbecuing and sunbathing beside a very shallow fish pond spanned by a bridge. Penvounder has a lovely relaxing family atmosphere.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family loved this property - The location is great, really picturesque and peaceful, in good distance of some great beaches and places to visit. The house itself is fantastically decorated and furnished, and has everything we needed. Garden is fantastic - Kids loved the trampolene. Great owner, very helpful & friendly. Any party size of up to 8 will love this property, perfect spot for a family holiday. Would gladly book again next time we're in Cornwall!

Excellent place to relax .

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable week at Penvounder cottage.The cottage is in a perfect spot for walks without a car, and also well situated for day trips out. A very cosy & warm cottage with all you need. The cottage is well equipped, clean and the garden is very peaceful to be around at any time of the day.

The owners were very friendly and helpful.

The small and picturesque village of Manaccan nestles in one of Cornwall's quietest and most unspoilt corners. A cluster of houses surround an ancient church with a bistro-café enhancing the little community. Old thatched village pub serving good pub food and real ales. The village occupies a sunny and elevated position between the south side of the Helford River and the little creek that runs from the sea up to Carne. Tennis courts can be rented at a very reasonable rate at the top of the village and boats are available for hire at St. Anthony (2 miles).
