About this property

Complimentary Welcome Hamper
A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

Snaptrip is delighted to offer you S41784, one of three holiday cottages on the magnificent Bonython Estate, under five miles south of Helston on the northern part of the Lizard Peninsula. The accommodation has been renovated to a 5-star standard, and beautifully furnished. The layout of the property has been designed with great thought and style.
Bonython Estate Gardens, which guests are welcome to explore, comprises some 20 acres with a recently renovated walled garden and potager and a hidden valley with three small lakes. The gardens are rated as one of 'The Great Gardens of Cornwall' and given a star in the 'Good Garden Guide'. Bonython Estate is a traditional, mixed agricultural Cornish estate with ancient manor, farm and woodland stretching almost from one side of the Peninsula (the Helford River) to the other (the beach at Poldhu Cove) with both shores just over a mile away. The Estate is close to the amenities of the small towns and villages nearby.
On the Estate you will find Mews Cottage (CW047), sleeping six guests; and St Corantyn Cottage (CW048) sleeping four guests.

    "Not apparent from details that it is in a complex of three rental properties. The property is tired and needs upgrading. It smelled disused so we needed many perfumed candles to help with this. The window blinds etc. are awful and need replacing. The dishwasher didn't work. There were no thoughtful touches at all. The bed and pillows are not comfortable. The door to the property did not lock properly. We had booked 5 nights but we left after 3 nights. The wood burner and the logs were much appreciated. We booked based on good reviews from previous guests, but perhaps it now needs a bit of TLC to make the property welcoming to future guests."

Many thanks for the sheets and blankets - guaranteed a good nights sleep. We enjoyed the gardens - plenty of bird song as well as interesting plants."

    "What a lovely and cosy cottage - especially through the winter! A much appreciated ahmper included along with a toasty open fire. A great way to spend our 1 year anniversary! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!!"
    Mike & Janet, Somerset
    "In from the cold and wet conditions to be greeted by warm and cosy accomodation - the Christmas tree and seasonal decorations, a nice touch. And the cake!! Also the wine went down well. The weather could have been better but a delightful way to see the New Year in and Janet's birthday on 2nd January. Once mastered, the wood burning stove was a treat to behold. Most enjoyable - thank you."

    "We really enjoyed our stay on the Lizard - no need to go as far as Padstow or St Ives. Loads to see and do on the Lizard itself. Especially appreciated the good food available. Had an excellent meal cooked in a wood fired oven at Roskilly's on the Friday evening and a very good price. This is really a good place for families, but for adults too as good walks around the farm, meadows and ponds are free! Pasties excellent from Gear Farm - also nice brea, pastries and home made pizzas. Many thanks LH, Leicester"
    Confirmed Guest
    "A lovely, cosy cottage for two. Perfect location for enjoying all that the Lizard has to offer. Made a good start on walking the complete Cornish coastal path. Over the week we have walked and thoroughly enjoyed from Nare Point to Gunwalloe Fishing Cove (twice because of getting back to the car). A great welcome hamper and meals at the Ferryboat Inn, Helford Passage and Kota Kai, Porthleven. Fab pasties from Gear Farm and a yummy cream team and pastries from Roskilly's. Thanks very much. PS, Kent"

    "We had a lovely week, only one day of rain. Seen all coves around Lizard. Kynance is stunning. Coverack is worth a visit, nice walk to harbour and bough home made pasties from Smugglers Cottage. A nice day at Falmouth with the ferry over to St Mawes for fish and chips at Rick Stein's on the quay. S41784 ticks every box, very comfortable, beautiful gardens. Loved home-made goodies, thank you.
