Banneth is a grand family home built in the traditional style located in a peaceful spot in the small hamlet of Garras, close to pretty river creeks, sandy beaches and rocky coves. Garras is a small hamlet just 5 miles from Helford village and close to other key villages such as Coverack, St. Keverne, Gunwalloe and The Lizard. This charming property makes a superb holiday base for exploring all the magnificent secrets of the rivers and coastline of the area. Banneth offers classic and luxurious accommodation with two double rooms and two single rooms all of which have very pretty outlooks onto the gardens around the house where children can play safely. The living room has an open fire and the dining room a traditional wood burner, perfect for snuggling up when taking an out of season break. With a picturesque and secluded garden the atmosphere is enchanting, and the accommodation is beautifully presented to make any family feel immediately relaxed. Banneth is within walking distance of Mawgan and the local village shop for all essentials, as well as The Ship Inn for great food and real ale. Guests will be able to take advantage of the leisure facilities available at Trelowarren Country Estate which has a Gym, Pool and Tennis courts (charges will apply), all this within a mile walk or drive of the house. There is also the Cornwall Crafts Association at Trelowarren with a variety of events and exhibitions. Local beaches include the sandy Church Cove at Gunwalloe next to the Mullion Golf Course, National Trust's Kynance Cove, Kennack sands and Coverack, all of which are very popular beaches and coves with some spectacular cliff walks and views. The Helford River attracts fascinating wildlife, and at Gweek The National Seal Sanctuary is a must for children and adults alike! For more serious fun, the Flambards Experience at Helston is only minutes away. Banneth is an excellent choice for a break at anytime of year.

Cornwall is a region full of history, culture and unique identity. So unique in fact that Cornwall has its very own language (Kernowek), flag (St Piran's Banner) and national anthem (Trelawney). In 2014 the UK government officially recognised the fine people of Cornwall as a national minority group, meaning that Cornish heritage and traditions now join the Irish, Scottish and Welsh as a protected Celtic group.
Cornwall is proudly known as the stunning setting of the popular BBC television series 'Poldark', starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. Cornwall is also proud of its famous Cornish Pasty, but has another pastry dish to offer you, the Stargazy Pie! If you don't mind a few pilchards looking at you whilst you eat, then the Stargazy Pie is the pie for you. After a pasty or a pie, or both, you might fancy a pint and Cornwall has a great choice of locally produced beers to satisfy your thirst. Try an ale from the St Austell Brewery, Skinner's Brewery or the Rebel Brewing Company to name but a few of the fine ale producers in the region. Please remember to always drink responsibly.

We hope you enjoy your break in Cornwall!
