3 bed apartment at Maenporth Beach. Use of indoor swimming pool
Number 59 Monterey Cottage is a spacious, end-of-terrace apartment on the Maenporth Estate. It's in an ideal location as it's close to the leisure centre, a few minutes' walk from the beach and a ten-minute drive to the bustling seaside town of Falmouth. The downstairs has recently been renovated and redecorated and now looks stunning.
Once inside, you'll see the massive living and dining area. It has a new oatmeal coloured carpet, fresh cream walls and a huge corner sofa, plus matching settee in a soft blue. It's the most perfect place for snuggling and relaxing after an exciting day sightseeing in Truro or down on the Lizard.There's a gorgeous, long farmhouse table and six chairs in the dining area, all in the modern style of stripped pine and chalk-painted legs. So much space to languish with a chilled bottle of Pinot Grigio after a delicious evening supper - and why not? You're on holiday. The kitchen has been refurbished and now sports beech-effect units and glossy marble work tops. I love the dove-grey tiles and accents of lime.
Upstairs and the master bedroom faces the sea. It has an en-suite shower room to keep the queues down in the morning, and is fully tiled in a contemporary, earthy style. The twin room and the single both have views of the garden. All are decorated in a simple cream colour with attractive Shabby Chic style furniture. The family bathroom is styled with elegant marble-effect tiles in rich tones. It has both a bath and an overhead electric shower which should suit everyone's needs, and a heated towel rail to keep your beach towels warm and dry. As an added bonus, we are now supplying one bath and one hand towel for each guest, free of charge.
Down the stairs again, through the patio doors and you'll find yourself on the paved terrace, perfect for enjoying a leisurely breakfast in the early morning sunshine. You can stretch out on the grass for some quiet sunbathing, or pull up a chair and watch the children play.
There are 29 acres of gardens to explore, plus you'll have full use of the leisure facilities, including the heated indoor swimming pool.
For bookings of one week or more, we'll have a welcome pack ready for your arrival - a bottle of locally made Helford River Creek fruit juice, Cornish filter coffee, Smugglers tea, Cornish biscuits, a few sugar sachets and a pint of milk..
There is a £100 deposit against damages on this property.

Lovely Easter break
We very much enjoyed our stay in this immaculate cottage. Thanks so much for the lovely Easter eggs for our three boys. We've been coming to Maenporth for 5 years, the sun always seems to shine, and we intend to return next year!
Hi Helen, If the sun always shines when you're in Cornwall, could you come more often, please?! I'm so glad you enjoyed your holiday in 59 Monterey - it really is a stunning apartment. As for the Easter eggs... what Easter eggs? I think that must have been the Easter Bunny... :-) You're very welcome, and we look forward to seeing you again next year. Hope you're enjoying the sunshine, Best wishes, Sara
Another wonderful week in no 59, a great place to come after Christmas and to celebrate the New Year
We have visited Maenporth at least once every year since it opened and our ‘youngest’ children (now 27 and 24!) have been every year of their lives. We still love it, and admire both how the facilities and houses are kept in first class condition, and especially how we can can go for long walks during the day and then relax in the pool, before returning to the comfort and warmth of our house and still be able to gaze out across the water. We will all be back next year.
Hi Colin Thank you so much for your lovely comments which are much appreciated and we are delighted that once again you have had a great holiday staying at 59 Monterey Cottage. It is so nice to hear that you come back year after year with your family. We very much look forward to welcoming you back soon Very Best Regards Jo
We ( a family of 5 with children who learned to swim in the pool and who are now in their 20s!) have been staying at Maenporth once or twice a year for around 25 years and have stayed at no 59 3 or 4 times before. We really liked the way it has been refurbished and refurnished. It was also good to see the make over of the Leisure Centre. We will definitely be back next (new) year.
Thank you Colin for taking the time to review your stay at 59 Monterery Cottages. We are pleased that you chose Holiday Cornwall for your stay at Maenporth. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future and hopefully with the next generation ;)
My family and I had a brilliant week at 59 Monteray Cottages. The location was very good, only a few miles from Falmouth although the country roads were sometimes challenging, especially when it was very dark. The cottage itself was very tastefully equipped, no shortage of anything, even a good selection of toys and games, much appreciated. A lovely setting, quiet and peaceful even at half term.
Hello Louise, wow, we're so pleased you had such a great half-term holiday with us, and found everything you needed. I've lived in Cornwall for nearly thirty years and I still find the lanes a bit of a driving challenge :-) Many thanks for providing a review. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon. With warm wishes, Sara
The Maenporth Estate is just two miles from Falmouth and overlooks the beautiful Maenporth Beach. It's a private complex with a coded entrance gate, making it safe and secure for all guests. Set in 29 acres of natural woodland, with stunning views of the cove, it's a perfect base for family holidays. You'll find two all-weather tennis courts, a children's play area, and, of course, the Leisure Centre where we have our indoor, heated pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. There are pool and table tennis tables - all free of charge. The famous award-winning Cove Restaurant is on site, or if you'd prefer something simple, try the Life's a Beach Cafe - you guessed it, on Maenporth beach, for fresh crab sandwiches or a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream. Two miles along the coast and you'll come across Helford Passage and the wonderful Ferryboat Inn which specialises in serving local seafood dishes. From here you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, or hire a rowing boat or paddle board for the afternoon. Maenporth's a sheltered cove with shallow waters, making it perfect for all kinds of family beach activities: the little ones will love paddling, splashing daddy, and clambering through rock pools. There's plenty of sand and piles of pebbles for sandcastle building, and beautiful clear water for swimming. Arvor Sea Kayaking offer guided kayaking trips throughout the year, and Cornwall Divers will take you on a scuba diving course from the beach! And, at low tide, you may spot the famous Scottish trawler, Ben Asdale, that was wrecked off the Maenporth coast on 30th December 1978. The nearest town is Falmouth - the third largest natural harbour in the world - take a boat trip along the Carrick Waters to a smuggler's cottage, or hop on the ferry to St Mawes. Visit the Maritime Museum, great for children with its hands-on approach. Catch some Grand Medieval Jousting at Pendennis Castle. Or simply sit with a cold glass of white wine and watch the boats glide by. Whatever you choose to do, you'll be sure to unwind from the stresses of life, and simply relax...
