Minster Field self catering house

The majority of properties in Manaccan may well be of a period nature, but Minster Field is one of a small number of modern homes located on a small residential development on the edge of the village.

Offering three bedrooms on the first floor and two more on the second, the house is certainly suitable for larger families or groups. It also features its own enclosed lawned garden, garage and parking.

Manaccan itself is a classic little Cornish village, brimming with history – indeed, it contains a disproportionately large number of listed buildings for a place of its size. Its church is particularly noteworthy and is famous for a fig tree which has been growing out of one of its walls for centuries. Interestingly, it was in the village that Captain William Bligh of HMS Bounty notoriety was temporarily kept under house arrest after being wrongly apprehended for spying (he was conducting an Admiralty survey of the Helford River at the time).

Helford village is around a mile and a half away, and from here it is possible to take the foot ferry (an ancient institution in its own right) to Helford Passage on the north bank of the river.

Also close by are Frenchman’s Creek, and the villages of St. Anthony and Gillan.
