Apartment in Gweek, Helston, Cornwall, England Riverside Cornish Village Yet Close To Many Sandy Beaches And Historical Towns
Gweek is a typical Cornish village with a great pub the "Black Swan" that does great food at reasonable prices. For the summer Kyacks will be available to rent from various locations including Helford by the Ferry Boat, Maenporth,Swan pool and Porthleven. The Cornish Gallery is the owners way of showing off their talents as photographers and have many large photographs from around the world. The large lounge with marble floor, flat screen TV is approx 30 feet long and boasts two 5-seater leather reclining sofas, a dining table and feature wall heater as well as central heating. From late July a new hot tub will be available on request for a small fee. Gweek is well known for the Gweek Seal Sanctuary where injured seals are nursed back to health before being released back into the sea. The other famous landmark is Gweek Quay boatyard where traditional Pilot Cutters can be seen being built along with many other types of boats in for repair. The Helford River made famous by the novelist "Daphne Du Maurier" with her famous book "Frenchmans Creek" being just down the river. For pub lovers we have several great hostelries around us including the "Black Swan" (opposite), Trengilly Wartha winner of many awards,The Ferry Boat Inn,The Ship Wrights and the Half Way House all serving excellent meals as well as real ale. The towns of Helston, Falmouth, Truro, Penzance, St Ives, Newquay and St Austell are are all within easy reach. The Eden Project is well worth visiting along with the Tate Gallery, Flambards and several museums. We are on the Lizard Peninsular which is the most southerly part of Great Britain and therefore boasts a great climate.

About the Owner
About Steve Clarke
I am a lover of all that Cornwall has to offer, great beaches, great people, fantastic scenery and typical country pubs.
We also like to travel and the Canary Islands, Caribbean and Australia are my passion. Water draws me like a magnet. Either in it or on it I just have to be near it.
Steve Clarke purchased this apartment in 2015
Why Steve Clarke chose Lizard Peninsula
.Luxury without the cost. The Gallery is about space in a nice setting close to the river, local pub and shop. There are nice walks close by and for beach lovers a massive choice in all directions.The Gallery offers an unique holiday property unlike an apartment in a big noisy block with lots of noise and kids running around.
What makes this apartment unique
.Set in a peaceful location where village life can be enjoyed but close enough to all that holidaymakers expect from the best location in the British Isles.
To meet the locals visit the Black Swan pub or on a Wednesday evening the village green comes alive with the arrival of Sid's fish and chip van where we all meet for supper and pint brought over the the pub to wash it down.

Gweek's a winner
We have just completed a one week's stay in this exceptional property in Gweek, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. From the friendly personal welcome and the welcome hamper onwards everything was just as we wished and as for Gweek itself it's a wonderful serene place to stay.

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Cornwall is well known for its diverse range of activities, Try hiking the coastal footpath, golfing, surfing, windsurfing, biking, For beach lovers we are spoiled by the many lovely beaches on both coasts, some are used Au Natural others with swim suits.Divers are spoiled by the many areas to explore and for anyone wanting to rent a small or large boat or yacht the choice is immense.
We have river beaches on the Helford or ocean beaches all within a short drive. For quiet secluded beaches we recommend Kynance cove,Gunwallow, Church cove, Dollar cove all on the Lizard. For other beaches we have Portleven, St Ives, Newquay, Falmouth and Marazion with the iconic St Michels Mount.
For surfers great waves can be found at Porthleven, Godrevy, Porttowan, St Ives and Newquay.
Most people coming to Cornwall drive down the A30 but if you want to fly try Newquay airport and arrange a car hire to waiting for yo and save the drive down. The main line railway stops at Truro and Redruth again car hire can be arranged. There several coach companies that will drop off in the main towns.
The Black Swan public house is only a few steps away but is very quiet and not noisey. The village shop is a two minute walk. Our next village is Constantine with a few more shops and pubs. A favoutite of ours is the Trengilly Wartha pub which is about 10 minutes drive or the Ship Wrights at Helford overlooking the River.
In Helston we have Tescos and Sainsbury supermarkets as well as the high street shops.In Penryn we have a large Asda store and a little further on is Falmouth with its High street, Harbour, Maritime Museum, docks and beaches.
