About the home
Avalon is located in the village of Mylor Bridge at the end of a tidal creek. Within two miles of the house are three places of interest: Mylor Harbour has a marina, moorings, boat hire and sailing school, Flushing is a picturesque village offering a small beach and wonderful views of Falmouth as well as the open sea, and the Pandora Inn, the famous 14th Century creekside pub. Just 5 miles away is the busy port of Falmouth with its beaches, boat trips, shops and restaurants.
The proximity of sea and beaches, coupled with amenities of village-life, make Mylor Bridge a perfect location for a family holiday.
The house itself, a dormer bungalow, is on a hill at the edge of the village. It is a roomy house with a large entrance hall leading to all ground floor rooms: living room, dining room kitchen, single bedroom, bathroom and toilet. Upstairs there are three more bedrooms and a shower room. Off the dining room are French windows giving on to an attractive decked area and garden. The garden is enclosed and safe for children.
Avalon itself offers a spaciousness where your family and friends can relax without being 'on top of each other'.

The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall is a perfect holiday destination offering a variety of holiday experiences for all ages. The beauty of its coastline and wonderful beaches are usually the main attractions, but for many it is the countryside, gardens or historical sites that make for an outstanding holiday.
The north and south coast are very different in character. The north coast, with its wild and dramatic Atlantic coastline, is favourable to those seeking expansive sandy beaches and the excitement of surfing. The south coast has a much gentler and romantic atmosphere, with its meandering coastline, picturesque harbours and sub-tropical gardens. It draws those who wish to sail or fish as well as those who want to explore hidden coves or exotic gardens.
Cornwall's wonder is its timelessness and its isolation.. Much of its past is still present and Cornwall's history is one of its key attractions. From the pre-history of standing stones in the far west to the iconic tin-mines abandoned in the 19th century, there is much of historic interest. Cornwall also has an artistic heritage that enthralls visitors. The beautiful landscapes and ever-changing light has attracted artists through the centuries to live in places such as St Ives, Newlyn or Falmouth.
The Falmouth / Mylor Bridge area
There are many beaches in the Falmouth area and it therefore makes for an ideal family holiday. The waters are generally safe and, with its countless sheltered coves, the Fal and Helford area is a superb location for fishing, boating and sailing enthusiasts.
Falmouth is a bustling port where there are many shops and restaurants. A visit to the Maritime Museum is an excellent introduction for the whole family to the sea-faring history of the area.
A mile away from Mylor Bridge is the famous Pandora Inn and in the opposite direction, the village of Flushing where you will find two more pubs and a small restaurant. A ferry runs half-hourly from Flushing over to the main quay in Falmouth. Mylor Harbour, sometimes referred to as Churchtown because of the ancient parish church that nestles in the valley, is situated on the Fal Estuary and is a pleasant half hour walk from the village along Mylor Creek. It is now a busy marina offering boat hire, chandlery, cafe and restaurants.
Mylor Bridge itself is a friendly village where people live and work, - it is not dominated by holiday homes.
It is a good sized village with several shops and a popular local pub, the Lemon Arms. It is situated at the end of the tidal creek and by the bridge itself you will find a well-equipped playing field, - this, as well as a set of stepping stones leading to Mill Quay where they can crab and fish, is very popular with visiting children!

I was delighted with the property - it was much better than expected.
It was pleasant and charming. While being on the out skirts of a small village, there was a shop within walking distance that sold very good croissants and pastries - at breakfast time.
If I did not live in Australia, I would be booking for my next holiday there.

We fell in love with Avalon, the village of Mylor Bridge and the immediate area. The house is spacious and really peaceful and had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the sunny deck for our post slumber breakfasts. We loved the fact that a walk down the hill brought us to a friendly village where we could buy newspapers, still warm bread, freshly caught scallops and lobster and great meat and pasties. It was so lovely to have a supermarket free week and very little driving! We even joined the locals midweek for a film in the village hall and a pint in the Lemon Arms afterwards. Oh and a great fish and chip waggon visits the village on Saturday nights! There is a lovely walk along the creek to Mylor Harbour with a super cafe for coffee and cakes. A gorgous walk around the headland brings you to the creekside Pandora Inn which has great atmosphere, is buzzy and serves great food with lots of daily specials. It's so easy to get into Falmouth, recommend the nearby Park and Ride, and you can creek hop on the various little ferries - St Mawes and Place are great day trips . Do the same for Helford for wonderful walks around those creeks. Cycling from Devoran is great fun and hop on the nearby train ( we caught it at Penryn) to travel nostalgically down the branch line to Truro. If you want to escape the day to day grind - sleep, eat and drink well and enjoy the great outdoors, this is one of the best places I've ever found to do just that!
