Gulval Farm Cottages are two stunning properties, The Lily Pad and The Flower Box which are situated on Posses Lane in Churchtown, Gulval, a pretty and quaint Cornish village. They are superbly located to explore the West Penwith of Cornwall. They are not far from the main town of Penzance in Mounts Bay and an easy walk to the historic St. Michael’s Mount, with the famous artist town of St. Ives only a short drive away.
Both holiday cottages are just 400 metres from a mile-long stretch of dog-friendly beach (all year round), ½ a mile from the town of Penzance and 2 miles from Marazion.
There are three major supermarkets within a 5-10 minute walking radius and many other essential amenities, including some great pubs and restaurants, which are all close-by. The holiday cottages are nestled in a rural location, but are close to the A30 and other main routes.
There are some magnificent walks from the doorstep of the cottages including the historic St. Michael’s Way and the South West Coastal Footpath.
It’s an easy 1 mile walk east to Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens and Restaurant, and Trengwainton Gardens and Tearoom is just over 2 miles to the west of Gulval.
We provide a superb list of walks in our information folder, that cover the many different areas of Cornwall. These can be downloaded and give good clear instructions with terrain difficulty advice.
