An absolute gem of a classic, westerly facing, period mid terraced Victorian cottage, offering three bedrooms, two reception rooms, garden, private parking, creek views, and located in the delightful and picturesque village of Gweek. The property has a plethora of period features including a gorgeous mellow stone elevation, complemented by granite quoins, lintels, traditional wooden sash windows, together with a granite fireplace and period paneled doors.

This stunning and quirky period cottage offers surprisingly spacious accommodation, while retaining a wealth of inherent charm/character, and offers a delightful 'rustic feel' from a bygone era. Situated in an elevated setting, the residence offers a gently sloping westerly facing front garden, enjoying views towards the creek, and sylvan valley views beyond. This idyllic period home nestles close to the source of the tidal Helford River, and conveniently only a short walk to the highly regarded local Black Swan pub, and the excellent shop/post office.

Upon entering the generous hallway, a door opens into the dining room, and a staircase ascends to the first floor accommodation. The dining room offers a fabulous granite built fireplace incorporating a solid fuel Rayburn stove providing the central heating (Refer to Agents Note 3) and hot water. Doors lead off respectively from the dining room, to the kitchen and living room. The charming living room also has another fireplace, and great views are to be enjoyed towards the creek from the front aspect.

The kitchen is located at the rear of the property where a door leads out into the rear porch, and the external small yard. The useful rear store/WC is accessed from the back yard. A staircase ascends from the hallway to the first floor accommodation which offers three bedrooms, and a generous bathroom.

Without doubt this lovely period cottage will appeal to retirement, local family, second home and investment buyers alike wishing to own a property in this sought after location, where Helston is only a ten minute drive away offering many supermarkets, and an eclectic array of individual shops.


The quaint rural village of Gweek nestles within a sheltered sylvan valley setting at the tidal limits of the Helford River. The superb day sailing waters can be accessed via the nearby boatyard, where the river meanders along the scenic shoreline and eventually flows into Falmouth Bay. The area offers many splendid walks nearby, such as the famous Cornish footpath giving access to both north and south shorelines of the Helford River. The area is a natural haven for wildlife along the sheltered creeks, and the village hosts the National Seal Sanctuary which is an enormous attraction for summer visitors. The village offers a public house, local shop/post office, garage and a local bus service to Helston and Falmouth areas. The well respected market town of Helston is only approx six miles distant offering an eclectic array of shops, schools and national supermarkets.


From Helston, drive past the airfield, and turn left signed Gweek. Once arriving in Gweek, continue a small way crossing the bridge, and just past Meneth on the right hand side, there is a turning again on the right which leads to Rose Terrace. Rose Terrace is conveniently just before the post office and the pub.
