We had a lively relaxing break based at the cottage and enjoyed some beautiful sightseeing and coastal walks.
Ruby Farm Cottage is a good base - lovely and quiet but easy access to many places of interest.
A snug property and the well equipped kitchen made it easy to stay in.
Excellent location, very clean property, perfect having a play area for the children on site. We will be back . Thank you.
Family break in Cornwall
We really enjoyed our stay at Ruby cottage, it was larger than we’d imagined from the pictures and we’ll furnished and looked after. Cornwall was great fun and our host was very friendly. Would recommend

Made very welcome. Cottage ideal for a family. Grandchildren loved the play area and all the animals. Good location for different places.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Lovely to hear that you all enjoyed your stay in Ruby and that the Grandchildren enjoyed saying hello to our animals. Hope you had a safe journey home.
Good location for visiting southern Cornwall. The property is comfortable and homely. The kitchen is well appointed but the white goods are somewhat dated but work .
Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Glad to hear you were comfortable in Ruby. Funny you should mention the dated white goods! But they work better than new white goods and have lasted a lot longer. Every other cottage has had some new ones put in and they are the white goods that last 3 years, give up the ghost and have to be replaced again, not brill for the environment! I actually wish I had Rubys' dryer in our house as it takes a fraction of the time to dry things, unlike our new one, 4 plus hours to dry towels! Yawn. Hope you had a safe journey home.
Family week in cornwall
Great location! Very convenient for visiting Cornwallprofessor north south and east costs.
Great house, nice hosts.
With easy access to Falmouth, attractions such as The National Maritime Museum Falmouth, Rick Steins Fish and Chips on Discovery Quay, Pendennis Castle and even St Mawes Castle via a 20 minute foot ferry, are all within reach. Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors' lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events. The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.
Helston was originally a thriving port, however as the river silted up over the years, this ceased to be. Where the river joins the sea, is now Cornwall's largest freshwater lake. The market town has a mixture of Georgian & Victorian architecture. On Coinagehall Street is the Blue Anchor, originally a rest house for monks, which became a tavern in the 15th century. This is possibly the oldest brewery in the country selling the strong local brew, Spingo. Helston is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula and to the Helford River, which has some beautiful villages, namely St Anthony in Meneage & Helford Village.
Porthleven is approximate 3.5 miles southwest of Helston. This charming fishing harbour also has world class surf break.
A little further along the coast, towards Penzance is Praa Sands, which has a mile of sandy beach.
North Helford covers the area from Maenporth to Helston and includes places such as Mawnan Smith, Helford Passage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn.
Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. Glendurgan Gardens run by the National Trust hold a 176 year old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing most popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay boast spectacular views, well worth a visit.
