Interior sitting room of Wood Cottage
Just above the hamlet of Durgan, Wood Cottage is like something out of a fairy story. Standing on the edge of a small wood, with views through the trees of the shimmering water below, the cottage is a tiny, timber-built, thatched cabin that used to be an apple store. This is a completely secluded, romantic and magical place to stay.
There is easy access to the south west coast path which can take you to Mawnan in the east, here starts a circular walk of about 4 miles which provides spectacular views of Rosemullion Head, secluded coves and the beautiful Helford Estuary.
