Mimosa is a well-appointed, comfortable whitewashed thatched cottage directly opposite the Shipwright's Arms in Helford. Although it is right next to the creek there are limited water views from the living rooms - the main ones being from the bathroom and the rear patio area. I would love to give the place 5 stars, however there are a few points to be aware of: 1. No central heating in the property. Perhaps not an issue in the summer months, but definitely a drawback in winter as the electric wall heaters are inadequate. Electric heaters are provided which do help to a degree. Once the log burner has been lit the living area does get very warm, however the kitchen is particularly chilly first thing in the morning. 2. Ceilings are low in the living room and on the stairs. This isn't uncommon in cottages of this type, but if you're over about 5' 9" you're likely to end up having to stoop a lot! Despite the helpful warning signs we have hit our heads repeatedly at various points around the property, so be warned! 3. The third bedroom is up some very steep steps (not a staircase) with rope for a handle accessed off the kitchen. There didn't appear to be any source of heating in this room. 3. The bathroom is on the ground floor, accessed from the living area and is audible from the living room. 4. There doesn't appear to be any parking outside the cottage. We are regular visitors to the Helford River, however unfortunately I doubt that this potentially lovely property would be our first choice next time.
