Perfectly positioned between the vibrant bustle of Falmouth and the tranquil beauty of the Helford, Mawnan Smith is a pretty village with shops and a popular thatched pub.
Glebe Cottage is situated along a quiet sequestered lane that leads to Mawnan Church, which stands guard over the entrance to the Helford. Once a rectory barn, this romantic old building has masses of character, including a galleried landing that looks down into a beamed open-plan living area.
The Trust's garden at Glendurgan is within walking distance, and there are lovely coastal walks around the entrance to the Helford River and out to Rosemullion Head.
