The nearby villages of Mawnan Smith and Constantine provide a wide range of local shopping facilities as well as primary schooling and Port Navas is located mid-way between Falmouth and Helston providing a much wider range of shopping business and leisure facilities.
Orchard Cottage is a delightful, extended end of terrace character property lying in the heart of the sought after creekside village of Port Navas.

The cottage has been extended over the current vendors 35 year ownership, and it retains many of the original character features including sash and casement windows, open beamed ceilings and internal cottage doors as well as a fabulous inglenook fireplace within the sitting room.

The property boasts much larger than anticipated accommodation comprising a good size sitting room to the front enjoying the views over the cottage garden, an open kitchen/dining room to the rear with window seat enjoying the views over the rear garden out to the surrounding woodland. There is a ground floor bathroom, first floor shower room and three first floor bedrooms the master of which is of a particularly generous proportion.

There is a huge and very unusual advantage of a good size integral garage as well as off-road parking for two to three vehicles. The driveway extends alongside the property to provide extra hardstanding for a small boat. The gardens extend to the side and rear of the cottage and are laid mainly of sloping lawns and elevated terraces providing seating areas enjoying the views across the surrounding trees and woodland. There is also a further lower garden known as The Orchard, the cottage's namesake which is currently in pretty wild state! This area could be cultivated and drained, to make an ideal spot for enjoying the views and tranquillity overlooking the stream which runs across the rear boundary to the woodlands beyond.
