Gulval Farm Cottages encompasses three stunning properties. Situated along Posses Lane in Churchtown, Gulval we have The Lily Pad and The Flower Box. Whereas Trehaven lies on School Lane in the heart of this pretty and quaint Cornish village. Not only are they superbly located for you to explore the West Penwith, but they are also within easy distance of many great attractions.
Our holiday cottages lie within walking distance 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 also 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 such as 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. Additionally, 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 such as the Lizard. These can be downloaded from the iWalk Cornwall app and give good clear instructions with terrain difficulty advice.
