    Local information

    • On a hill at the head of Gillan Creek, Manaccan is a pretty village with a pleasant thatched pub, the New Inn. It is said that its remote location allowed smugglers to continue to function here long after their ‘business' had been successfully eradicated elsewhere.
    • The Lizard is renowned for its beauty and spectacular landscapes, with much of the area, including Manaccan, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The countryside and coastline are famed for their varied animal and plant-life, geology and history, while the climate on the Lizard is often milder than the rest of the country. The property is just a short distance from the secluded and tranquil beaches of St Anthony and Gillan Creek and the South West Coastal Path. It is in an area which is designated an SSSI, (Site of Special Scientific Interest). Located off the beaten track and away from the usual holiday haunts, it is a thought by many to be a very special place. Gillan Creek is an idyllic and sheltered tidal inlet to the south of the Helford River. Sailing and mooring facilities are available on the Helford river and there is a challenging links golf course at Mullion.
    • Locally, the village of St Keverne provides a post office, two pubs, butchers, local shop, church and a nationally recognised ice-cream parlour at Roskilly's, where there is also a craft centre, restaurant, gallery and animal area. The market town of Helston has a wide range of shopping and schooling facilities, whilst the cathedral city of Truro, approximately 25 miles away, is the municipal centre of the county. Travel links to the area are good with the A30 providing dual carriageway access through Cornwall from the M5 at Exeter. There are mainline railway stations at Redruth and Truro and Cornwall Airport (Newquay), is an hour away.
