Germoe is a quiet village and parish situated between Penzance and Helston with a wealth of historical interest associated with the saint after whom it receives its name, St Germoe. The pretty church stands in the centre of the village, the current church site was recorded as early as the 12th century. There are some Norman remains with the church mostly dating from the 15th century.

In the church yard is St Germoe's Chair, which plays an important part in the Palm Sunday procession with the lesson being read and a hymn sung at the chair. There is some suggestion that St Germoe himself is buried here. The Holy Well of Saint Germoe stands a short distance south west of the church and was restored for the Silver Jubilee of H.M. The Queen in 1977. The Feast of St Germoe takes place annually during the first weekend in May.

Germoe is perfectly situated for access to the surrounding Coast and Countryside with a wealth of rural walks nearby including the well known Tregonning Hill. You are spoilt for choice with beaches with Prussia Cove, Rinsey, Praa Sands and Perranuthnoe as well as Marazion and St Michael's Mount all being within easy reach. The closest and perhaps most popular is Praa Sands with its stunning mile long stretch of sparkling white sandy beach backed by sheltering dunes. There are a range of eateries and small shops including the recently opened well stocked general store and deli.


The property is entered via a porch to the front giving access to the spacious sitting room with log burner and pretty window seat. From here a door leads to the light flooded kitchen breakfast room fitted in a shaker style with a useful adjoining utility room offering access to the rear garden. The first floor offers two double bedrooms, the master being particularly generous and a family bathroom featuring a luxury digital bath and shower over.


To the front of the property is a pretty cottage garden. The main gardens lie to the rear and are a particular feature being generous in size and mostly laid to lawn. There is a useful summerhouse/studio with adjoining WC. There is a pedestrian access gate to the rear of the garden. Immediately opposite the property is the single garage with driveway parking for one car, this is a huge asset in this location.
