Why book a cottage in Mawnan Smith?
The pretty village of Mawnan Smith lies between Falmouth and the Helford River. Traditional thatched cottages line the lanes and a 15th century church overlooks the river. The village has all of the amenities you need with a couple of shops, restaurants and a pub.
Mawnan Smith is close to two of the most well-known and beautiful gardens in Cornwall. Glendurgan Gardens is owned by the National Trust and has three levels of valleys to explore. The sub-tropical gardens lead down to the hamlet of Durgan on the Helford River. Tebah Garden is a 26 acre, sub-tropical garden bursting with exotic plants and trees.
Towards the coast, on the South West Coast Path, is the spectacular cove and beach of Maenporth.
