Location

Located midway between Mylor Harbour and Mylor Bridge, Creekside Cottage enjoys a very special location with the breathtaking expanse of Mylor Creek lapping against its front garden, and a slipway and private foreshore to launch your paddleboards, kayaks, or a small boat. Guests will enjoy a simply stunning holiday setting with plenty of opportunity for everyone to explore this beautiful area from the water, or simply take in the constantly changing views and sounds of the Creek from your private front garden.

 

By prior arrangement, it may be possible to accommodate a small boat trailer to be stored throughout your stay. For those who would like to learn or brush up their paddleboarding, sailing or powerboat skills, we are only a 15 minute walk (or paddle) from Mylor Sailing School in Mylor Yacht Harbour together with Restronguet Sailing Club, Cafe Mylor and Castaways Restaurant. Guests can enjoy circular walks directly from the Cottage, including around Mylor Great Wood to the historic Pandora Inn in Restronguet Creek, (equally accessible from the water in the right conditions) to the north, and Flushing to the south.

There are local shops and amenities nearby in Mylor Bridge only a 10 minute walk away. and extensive coastal walking to take in the spectacular views and range of wildlife around the River Fal estuary and Roseland Peninsula. Falmouth's beaches, events and attractions, the historic city of Truro, the surfing beaches of the north coast and countryside of the Roseland via the nearby King Harry Ferry are all within easy reach, guaranteeing a varied and memorable holiday for everyone in this beautiful part of the world whatever the time of year.

A large, sunny, open front garden enjoys a 40 ft frontage directly onto the stunning Mylor Creek and the Carrick Roads beyond, and is of the very few locations in Cornwall where traditional working boats still 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, including curlews and other wading birds foraging at the waterline.

 

Inside, the cottage has a contemporary feel, and is constantly updated and meticulously maintained by the owners to offer clean, beautifully presented and well appointed accommodation for up to 6 guests. The cottage comfortably accommodates a family or up to 5 adults, and yet is cosy enough for couples.

 

The interconnected ground floor reception rooms provide a sociable and welcoming living and dining space for a family or friends to enjoy during their holiday. The sitting area enjoys views of the passing boats and paddleboards in the Creek as well as a relaxed atmosphere to chat or watch TV, stream your favourite channels, or pick a DVD from the owners' collection.

 

A large archway opens out into a dining area awash with natural light and enhanced by a country-style kitchen diner. A solid pine table comfortably sits up to 6 for intimate dinner parties.

 

Leading on from the dining area, the bright and contemporary spot-lit kitchen features an oak vaulted ceiling and is fully equipped with a broad range of high quality appliances to make self-catering as convenient as possible, including a dishwasher, large fridge freezer incorporating an icemaker and filtered iced water dispenser, microwave and air frier, ceramic hob, oven and grill.

About Us

We are a Chartered Surveyor and professional Artist couple with a grown up family and 2 dogs who love sailing, paddleboarding and in particular exploring Cornwall "off the beaten track". We fell under the spell of beautiful Mylor Creek many years ago and still look forward to returning for our own holidays as often as we can.

 

We hosted our first guests 10 years ago and it's always a pleasure to welcome so many previous guests who want to stay with us again and again in this beautiful corner of Cornwall.

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 spend much of the closed season planning improvements and upgrades which are carried out in spring each year.
