Heron Cottage is our family's home from home. 4 generations have so far enjoyed holidays and extended stays in this delightful cottage overlooking Restronguet Creek. Whilst you will find all the necessary amenities, don't expect high tech, modernist luxury but rather a clean, practical, homely comfort in which to relax and enjoy all this very special location has to offer.To reach the cottage, cross Weir Beach and carry on 100 yards up the lane which runs along the west bank of Restronguet Creek. Heron is the second of a pair of white cottages on your left looking out across the water.The front door, set back slightly from the lane, opens onto a dining area with kitchen beyond. A cosy sitting room features an open fire and large bay window looking across the creek.

Whilst you will find all the necessary amenities, don't expect high tech, modernist luxury but rather a clean, practical, homely comfort in which to relax and enjoy all this very special location has to offer.To reach the cottage, cross Weir Beach and carry on 100 yards up the lane which runs along the west bank of Restronguet Creek. Heron is the second of a pair of white cottages on your left looking out across the water.The front door, set back slightly from the lane, opens onto a dining area with kitchen beyond. A cosy sitting room features an open fire and large bay window looking across the creek. The family bathroom is also on the ground floor and a back door provides access to the terraced garden and meadow beyond.Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms to sleep 6 comfortably. The main double bedroom features a large bay window with a beautiful view directly onto the creek. Wake up to a true Cornish creek vista and during the day sit and watch the comings and goings on the water and ever-changing scene up and down the creek and across the Carrick Roads to St Just and the Roseland Peninsula. A smaller twin room is also to the front. A large, bright, double aspect twin room to the rear provides views of the creek and the garden.There is private parking for two cars but be aware that access across the beach is limited either side of high tides. We keep a tide table beside the front door and a rough guide to when the beach is passable. When required there is parking in the lane the other side of the beach.In such a location there is no need to venture far away. Relax or potter on the shingle beach or explore the rock pools. Wind surf, kayak, sail, row, motor, paddle board or simply swim in Restronguet Creek, the Carrick Roads or further out to sea.A mere 7 minutes walk along the magic creekside path and you are at the world famous Pandora Inn. A 13th century thatched pub on the waterside serving excellent food. The village of Mylor Bridge has a local grocer's, newsagent and the Lemon Arms. A traditional village pub also serving excellent food. Mylor harbour is a busy marina. Charter a yacht, rent a motor boat by the hour or learn to sail. The bustling old town of Falmouth with its working port is only 15 minutes away by car. Or take the water taxi. Restaurants, shops and pubs abound and there is plenty to do whatever the weather. The National Maritime Museum, art galleries, parks and gardens, sandy beaches, Ships and Castles water centre and Henry VIII's castle on Pendennis Point.More
