In the Owner's Words
"Our ten years living at Linden Lea have been very happy ones. This has been a very sociable house, hosting gatherings in the garden under canvas, barbecue get togethers on summer evenings around the pool or winter dinner parties indoors. It has been a wonderful place for our sons to return home to from university, often with friends in tow, to enjoy the country side and beaches or just chilling in the garden.
Being above the village means we enjoy peaceful open countryside views from the garden, balcony or conservatory, and the pub, shops and village life of St Mawgan are an easy walk away.
We found from the start that St Mawgan has much to offer and we have both enjoyed being actively involved in annual activities such as the Flower Festival, Cabaret Club, the Steam Rally, pub Beer Festival, village outdoor Carols and the charity Pram Push. "
