It is hard to imagine a position more perfect for a holiday cottage: this delightful stone building with dormer windows in its slate roof is right above the beach, only a few metres from the water's edge. With Quay Cottage occupying one half of the building and Beach Cottage the other, both cottages share a small garden, and the same uninterrupted views over the Helford, with the shingle beach just outside their doors. Next door is the slightly larger property in this cluster,The Old School House
