A large, sunny, open front garden directly opposite the cottage enjoys a 40 ft frontage directly onto the stunning Mylor Creek, one of the very few places in Cornwall where traditional working boats still put out to the Carrick Roads to dredge for oysters under sail. Our private foreshore and the adjacent public slipway provides an ideal place to launch your own family adventures afloat or simply soak up the peaceful atmosphere and view the abundent wildlife on the Creek all around you, complimented by the sounds of curlews and other wading birds foraging at the waterline.

A Chartered Surveyor and professional Artist couple with a grown up family and 2 dogs who love sailing, paddling and the great outdoors, we fell under the spell of beautiful Mylor Creek over 20 years ago.
Completely renovated, meticulously maintained to a high quality throughout, and with family and dog friendly holidays always uppermost in our minds, we were persuaded to open our doors to holiday guests in 2013, so many of whom we enjoy welcoming back to Creekside each year.
We have a fantastic local housekeeping, maintenance and gardening team helping us to keep the cottage beautifully presented for our guests to enjoy, and we look forward to holidaying at Creekside between our guests, constantly upgrading and improving as well as enjoying our own adventures in this beautiful corner of Cornwall.
