Nestled between the maritime town of Falmouth and the unspoilt natural ravines of the Helford, Maenporth is a true hidden gem that stands proudly in an area of outstanding natural beauty. With a large expanse of established grounds, our 29-acre site overlooks the sheltered beach of Maenporth. There is no better place to slow down whist being treated with the wonderful seaside and woodland sights surrounding our 90 properties. Our self-catering cottages in Falmouth are a great base for your holiday adventures. Make Maenporth the heart of your Cornish experience today.

With the beach in walking distance from all properties, you’re never too far from the crash of a wave or glisten of Summer sunshine on the sand. Head on over to the beach café for a treat, or if you are more adventurous, take the paddle boards out to sea and paddle between the coves of Swanpool and Gyllyngvase or Bream Cove and Durgan towards the Helford around Rosemullion Head. Coastline to the East and West offer protection from the wind and waves making Maenporth a great place to paddle, swim and enjoy the water safely.

Whether you are a keen morning swimmer, or just want a bit of holiday fun, our heated indoor pool will bring that holiday luxury you want. Being one of the largest private pools in Cornwall at 15m, you will feel spoilt with your exclusive access. Or if you want a full relaxing experience, the spa pool is brilliant to spend some time away from the family along with our wooden sauna.

Our Leisure Centre has free guest Wi-Fi too, so if you fancy sitting in our upstairs seating area, you can keep yourself entertained or overlook the pool to watch your relatives having some holiday fun. Hot drinks are served all year round, simply enquire at reception about this. Or if you would rather sit in the pool hall, enjoy our comfortable seating, and relax with a book.

Follow the short path behind our Leisure Centre to our 2 all-weather tennis courts, open 7 days a week all year round.
