Share our cornish idyll- a self catering home from home for seadogs and explorers, swallows and amazons, ramblers and naturalists, artists and dreamers......
Our waterside holiday cottage is ideal for families, friends and couples and we accept up to 3 dogs. With the breathtaking expanse of Mylor Creek next to their front garden, and a slipway and private foreshore to moor a small boat or dinghy, standup paddleboard or kayak, guests will enjoy a stunning holiday setting with plenty of opportunity to get afloat.
Creekside Cottage is a renovated 4 bedroom 3 bathroom village house on the banks of Mylor Creek with far reaching views across the water and rolling Cornish countryside beyond. It provides a perfect all year round base for water sports enthusiasts, walkers, wildlife lovers, or simply relaxing in a peaceful environment
Guests love the large and sunny front garden which 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. The private foreshore and 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.
Inside the cottage has been comprehensively modernised to offer beautifully presented and well appointed accommodation ideal for groups of up to 6 guests. It is great for large families and suitable for up to 5 adults, but cosy enough for couples.
The interconnected ground floor reception rooms provide ideal living space for family and friends to enjoy during your holiday. The sitting area enjoy views of the passing boats and a warm and cosy atmosphere to relax on leather sofas to enjoy a movie on the internet TV or a DVD from the family library. The warmth of a roaring fire adds to the scene in the winter months.
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 indoor dinner parties, whilst a large wood burning stove radiates plenty of warmth in the wintertime.
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 the best of your self-catering stay.
The adjoining utility room is equipped with a washing machine, tumble dryer and hanging space for wetsuits / walking / sailing gear. Leading off is a power shower which is useful after a day on the water. From the utility room a stable door opens out and up the stone steps into a large and sunny back garden which is ideal enjoying relaxed alfresco meals in the sunshine. The garden is enclosed making it the ideal spot for children and dogs to play
The contemporary style accommodation of the cottage continues up (the stairs have a built in stair gate) to the first floor with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Tastefully furnished in a fresh nautical theme, each bedroom is comfortable and bright with direct views over the creek from 3 of the 4 bedrooms.
Couples can easily relax in the master bedroom with its King size bed and TV. This room offers tranquil garden views to enjoy from the back of the cottage and is perfectly complemented by a modern en-suite with power shower.
A further bedroom ideal for couples can also be found overlooking Mylor Creek, with a double bed and flat screen TV. A bright and welcoming single bedroom leads off from the double bedroom with both enjoying shared access to a modern fitted family bathroom with power shower. An fourth bedroom with single bed also overlooks the beautiful waterside, to complete the stylish and immaculately presented sleeping accommodation.
For those who love being out on the water Creekside ideal for paddlers and sailors and we do allow a small boat trailer to be parked on the front garden next to the allocated parking space. Our private foreshore and the adjacent public slipway is perfect for launching dinghies, paddleboards kayaks or tenders, and for those who are learning to sail we are only a short walk (or paddle) from Mylor Sailing School and Mylor Yacht Harbour in Mylor Churchtown, Restronguet Sailing Club, Cafe Mylor and Castaways Restaurant. Guests can also enjoy a beautiful walk around Mylor Great Wood to the historic Pandora Inn in Restronguet Creek, which is equally accessible from the water.
There are convenient local amenities nearby in Mylor Bridge and extensive coastal walking to take in the spectacular views and range of wildlife in the area. Falmouth's beaches, events and attractions, the historic city of Truro, and the beautiful beaches and countryside of the Roseland Peninsula via the nearby King Harry Ferry are all within close proximity, guaranteeing an enjoyable stay in this beautiful part of the world.

We are a Chartered Surveyor husband and Artist wife team with 4 children and 3 dogs who love sailing, paddling and the great outdoors, and we fell in love with Mylor Creek in 2007.
Completely renovated in 2012, and with dog friendly family holidays uppermost in our minds, we were persuaded to open our doors to our first holiday guests in 2013 and have been delighted with how many return to us year on year.
We have a fantastic local housekeeping, maintenance and gardening team who keep the cottage beautifully presented for our guests to enjoy, and we are in residence for 10-15 weeks a year constantly upgrading and improving in between our own family holidays.
Such a beautiful setting for a fabulous family holiday. The dogs loved the woodland walks around the Creek, the children had an amazing time crabbing from the garden.Will count the days until we come back!

We have been renting cottages throughout the UK for many years and although we select carefully there is usually some disappointment with the properties we stay in. However on this occasion the cottage matched the description in every respect, the quality and cleanliness was superb, the position perfect and as a consequence we were able to enjoy a thoroughly restful break.
Thank you for providing such an excellent retreat, I can assure you it is a rarity to be so completely satisfied. Thank you too for the very kind and thoughtful gift package of Scones, cream, jam and your cards each so very much appreciated

We loved the area, fabulous location. Due to an injured ankle I wasn’t able to walk as much as planned so we have to return!! We (me and my husband) especially loved the cottage and what it offered and would rent it out again just for us!
We stay in Cornwall three times a year, Creekside Cottage has the best equipped kitchen we have experienced and a wonderfully cosy atmosphere. We were sad to leave
