To give our cleaners enough time to complete the additional cleaning and sanitising that is currently needed to keep our guests safe, check-in and check-out times at the majority of our properties have been temporarily revised. The revised times for this property are reflected above.
Mimosa is a picture-postcard thatched cottage, with views of the river and lots of charm and quirky features, a new bespoke kitchen and lovely large enclosed garden.
The front path through the wildflower garden leads up to a glazed front door, opening into the atmospheric, low beamed living room with a woodburner, comfortable modern sofas and a TV with DVD player. At the far end of the living room, grouped around the old second fireplace alcove, is a pine dining table and shaker style chairs. From here, steps lead down into the well-equipped fitted kitchen, including dishwasher and microwave, and a stable door leading out to the front garden with a wooden picnic bench for eating al fresco.
The newly-fitted bathroom, with bath and overhead shower, is behind the living room, and upstairs are two lovely bedrooms both enjoying a fab outlook on to the Helford River. There is a single bedroom at the top of the cottage which also benefits from stunning river views and this is accessed by separate, open tread stairs from the kitchen.
Outside, steps from the front garden lead around the side of the cottage and on to beautiful tiered gardens with patio furniture where those fabulous river views can be enjoyed.

Really good holiday. Housekeeper was excellent - left bunch of flowers which was nice touch. Deposit came back quickly and house was great. Going to book again next year.
Mimosa is full of character (and a few low beams) in a fantastic location - across the road from a riverside pub, a minute from the local shop and close to several footpaths and the Helford ferry. Our favourite memory was eating meals on the terrace overlooking the village and Helford river.
Helford is an idyllic little village set on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.
The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!
Helford is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm family favourite, Flambards. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.
