Palm Cottage has always been a second home for the owners, so although the house is ready for your arrival and immaculately clean it has a warmth to it, from the carefully chosen interiors to the garage with surplus chairs for sitting in the garden. There is a tastefully furnished open-plan living room with an ample-sized dining table at one end and a cosy seating area with an open log fire at the other. The kitchen is light, airy and well equipped with a table for six. The bathroom is downstairs, with a bath and shower over. Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms; a double and two twins.

About the neighbourhood
Palm Cottage is in the centre of the unspoilt village of Newtown-St Martin, more or less in the centre of the Lizard Peninsula. A popular three miles circular walk is from Kestle Barton, brown signposted, down Frenchman's Creek to Helford and return through the wood. A foot-ferry from Helford runs across the river to Helford Passage. GUNWALLOE CHURCH COVE and KYNANCE COVE are the nearest beaches. HELSTON is a quaint old town famous for its annual Floral Dance and The Blue Anchor, one of the oldest pubs in England. POTHLEVEN has many shops and restaurants, an attractive Victorian terrace of houses and a working harbour. The Seal Sanctuary at GWEEK is one of only two in the UK and is certainly worth a visit.
