Mellingey, Constantine

Delightful, privately situated country property far from the madding crowd…

A unique opportunity to acquire a 4 bedroom detached country cottage, with a useful studio with potential, situated at the end of a tree lined lane, in a tranquil valley setting with no near neighbours.

The property enjoys complete privacy and is set within delightful wooded and landscaped gardens and grounds with stream together with a pasture field, in all approx. 6 acres.



Mellingey is situated in a wonderfully private position, at the end of a third of a mile long hard surfaced entrance lane which meanders through a stunning wooded valley to an opening where the property is nestled within its gardens with ample parking, on the slopes of the valley enjoying a sunny southerly aspect and attracting a wide variety of flora and fauna.

The property lies approx. 1½ miles from the creekside village of Gweek at the head of the picturesque Helford River offering good local services and facilities. The larger village of Constantine is less than 2 miles distant and has a popular well stocked village shop and off licence, primary school, doctor’s surgery and pub etc.

The former market town of Helston is less than 5 miles distant and has an extensive range of services and amenities, supermarkets, health, leisure and education facilities, is home to RNAS Culdrose Naval Base and is the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula boasting spectacular stretches of coastal and clifftop scenery and walks. The harbour town of Falmouth is less than 10 miles away and again offers a superb range of services and facilities including access to the excellent sailing waters of the River Fal and Carrick Roads. The Combined Universities of Cornwall Campus at Tremough, Penryn, is also within easy reach.


Mellingey has been in our client’s family ownership for approximately 24 years and was extended by the previous owners to provide additional accommodation. The property maintains a wealth of period features within the original cottage and some architectural features within the additions adding to the country charm and uniqueness of this property.

The property is complemented with useful outbuildings including a garage, garden shed, garden machinery store and a studio/home office, which subject to planning could be converted to provide additional accommodation or indeed a holiday let, with wonderful views over the garden.

The valley woodland gardens have been landscaped and nurtured over the years to provide a lovely tranquil and secluded setting, with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs and flowering plants with lawned areas with an idyllic stream running through.
