Newly renovated stylish family home in Mawnan Smith, Anvower is the perfect base for any young family.

The soft play area with sensory garden is perfect for little ones, and even has a covered area for all weather. A large open plan living/dining/kitchen area with large windows gives great views of the garden. The master bedroom opens out onto the front patio and ‘adult garden’ with fire pit and plenty of seating. There are three single bedrooms each with large windows looking over the gardens.

Located on the edge of the popular Mawnan Smith village, which has a thatched pub, shop, cafe and tapas restaurant.

Just a 20 minute walk through Carwinion woods takes you to Porth Sawsen beach on the Helford River. A lovely beach for sitting and watching the sunset.

Location and Surrounding Area


Situated on the edge of Mawnan Smith next to Carwinion Gardens, the house is just next to a public footpath down to the Helford River and Porth Sawsen beach (20 minute walk).

The village has a lovely local cafe, serving cake, lunch and breakfast. There is also a Post Office/general store, thatched pub, tapas restaurant and charity shop.

Just two minutes in the car and you are at either Glendurgan Garden or Trebah Gardens , both of which have plenty to keep little ones busy.

Falmouth is just a 10 minute drive past the beaches, with an award winning high street and a variety of interesting shops and restaurants.
