Sawdays Clean and Safe CharterThe Boathouse must be one of the finest private houses available for self-catering holiday letting in Cornwall.

It commands a truly stunning location right on the beach in a small quiet cove in Gillan with beautiful uninterrupted views over the Cove and beyond out to sea.

The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and is perfect for launching dinghies/kayaks at all states of the tide. It also provides safe swimming and rock pooling.

The house is peacefully located at the end of a small no through lane. It is very well equipped and is regularly being updated with the latest improvement for summer 2023 being the spacious new glass and steel decking offering uninterrupted views of the bay.

Guest Comments

The Boathouse is a wonderful house in a stunning situation. It is beautifully furnished and exceptionally well-equipped. Excellent housekeeping. It was utter bliss sitting on the terrace, listening to the waves and watching the comings and goings in the creek and the sea beyond. Highly recommended.

The Boathouse is a beautiful house in a stunning location. Accommodation extremely comfortable and a great first floor terrace with extensive views of the creek and sea beyond and equipped to a high standard. Good access to several great dining locations and pubs. It would be a hard act to better.

The best ever holiday ever x
The house is so beautiful, being so close to the water is truly amazing.

Our third stay in this wonderful house. Great location and a very well appointed house. All elements of our stay have been a joy. We love the outdoors, so next to the sea, on the South West Coastal Path is ideal. Great pubs and restaurants nearby. We will be back.

Simply Heaven on Earth! The Boat House is wonderful. It’s position on the beach is unrivalled and we cannot wait to return. The house is beautifully kept and has everything you could need for an amazing holiday.

The boathouse is the most beautiful property nestled away with its own beach. Homely and comfortable with all the amenities you could possibly need. Our family stayed for a very important birthday and couldn't have had a better time. The only way I can describe this property is that it is incredibly special!! Will definitely return.

The Boathouse is an absolute delight and a joy to return to such a luxurious well appointed and cared for property after a day spent sightseeing at The Lizard or Falmouth maybe, both within easy reach - or visiting local villages and secluded coves. The location is on the coastal path and the scenery can soon become beautifully rugged, inland the villages, like Helford, are just a treat to the eye, nestled on the banks of the river ! With the sound of waves lapping on the shoreline and views to die for, this is truly a gem of a property in a location to die for !

Just to say thank you and let you know that we had the most wonderful weekend in your fabulous house! What an amazing place and so beautifully decorated and kitted out, you had thought of everything. The children especially loved being so close to the water and spent ages in their kayaks just messing about, it really was magical. In fact, we all loved our stay so much I wondered whether it might be possible to book for the same weekend next year?

I loved The Boathouse on Flushing Cove with its little beach and views out to sea providing the setting for a perfect holiday. The beautifully furnished and equipped family home can equally suit those wanting a cosy couples escape or a large group of 14 and anything in between.Walkers, sailors, wildlife watchers and escapists can just relax and while away the hours here... sublime

Just returned from a fabulous week in the Boathouse with family/ friends. What a great place to stay. Directly on the waters edge with great views out over the bay we had so much to see & do just outside the front door. We followed the coastal paths in both directions, walked out around the headlands at low tide & walked across to the other side of the creek without getting our feet wet. Lots of places within easy distance - Lands End, Lizard, Minack Theatre. Accommodation was great - very well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge with wood burner and very comfortable bedrooms. Highly recommended.

The Boathouse is an amazing place, with a wonderful view over the sea and the beach below. The house is very spacious and comfortable with exceptional attention to detail. Two dishwashers was quite a talking point and very useful. We stayed as a family party of adults and young children and all loved the place. There are plenty of places to visit not too far away, but we actually spent most of our the time relaxing, enjoying the view and rock pooling on the beach with the children. Now working out how soon we can get back there.
