A nicely proportioned and well appointed kitchen benefits from a separate utility room, with pathway leading to a side access to the spacious and well sized garage.

'Long Meadow is situated on the eastern side of village outskirts, with nearby walks and footpaths leading to the South West Coast Path and the shoreline of the Helford River. Consequently, there are beautiful walks 'on the doorstep' to Grebe Beach, Durgan, Helford Passage and Ferry Boat Inn in one direction, and Mawnan Church, Rosemullion Head and Maenporth Beach in the other. The village itself has for many decades been recognised as one of the most sought-after destinations in south Cornwall, with picturesque Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens nearby, and excellent day-to-day amenities including a thatched public house, The Red Lion Inn, doctors surgery, convenience stores, restaurant, cafe, hairdressers, craft stores and bus service to Falmouth, approximately four miles distant.
