About Jo Lay
This house has been owned by our family since the early 1970s. It was my husband's former home before our growing family meant we needed somewhere larger. We now live a few miles away in the next but one village. John and I both grew up in Cornwall, we know and love the county and all that it has to offer. Our children attend school locally and we take an active part in our community so are well placed to discuss areas of interest and things to do nearby. John has had a property business in Falmouth for over 25 years and I work as a designer/artist/mum and look after our holiday homes.
Jo Lay purchased this Cottage in 1972
Why Jo Lay chose Breage
The house is in such a lovely setting we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Cottage unique
The delightful garden with stream and visiting wildlife make this a wonderful, tranquil spot and really quite a special place to stay. It is in a brilliant location as so easy to reach the coast on all three sides of West Cornwall yet not too far from bigger places such as Truro and Falmouth.

Little bolt hole
Delightful little cottage but in a difficult position for parking and entry and exit to parking area. Well equipped but could benefit from a tablecloth and or a better dining table. Curtains need attention between lounge and conservatory. Overall very comfortable with the fire being of benefit this time of year.
Perfect Little Hideaway
Very quiet and peaceful in a busy part of Cornwall. Had all that we needed to a few days away, and would definitely go back.
All you need
Lovely, cosy, very user friendly cottage in a very peaceful tranquil location. Well situated for the Lizard, Penzance and Land's end areas. Great garden. Would highly recommend
Property was central to all location but a lot of one track lanes. The property is in need of a spruce up but well equipped
This was a very pretty cottage, ideally situated for exploring Cornwall. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is the place to go. It has a beautiful garden with a stream running through the bottom of it. We were lucky to have fantastic weather so could enjoy sitting in the garden. The cottage is equipped with everything to make your stay feel like home from home. Most places we visited were within a half an hour drive. Would highly recommend a 15 minute drive to Porthleven which has lovely gift shops, eating places and the Ship Inn pub with beautiful harbour views to enjoy a drink or two. Our only grumble would be the fact that check in is 4pm which delays the first day of your holiday. We had driven several hours from the midlands and arrived at 3.55pm. We were told we were too early and had to sit in the car and wait. It was 4.10pm when we could finally go in. The information provided for the cottage said there is always fresh milk waiting in the fridge. After the long journey we were looking forward to a cuppa but when we opened the fridge there was no milk there which was very disappointing. We did receive a message later apologising for the fact no milk had been left. After this we settled in and enjoyed our stay. The surrounding area is very pretty and plenty of villages to enjoy.
The house and garden are large for a 1 bedroom property and are accurately depicted in the photos. The location is also very good - only a short drive from the many towns, beaches and other attractions in West Cornwall.
Jo was very easy to communicate with and even the neighbours were very nice!
Ruth Dower lies in a beautiful valley and is less than a mile from the ancient and historic National Trust owned Godolphin House. Set within tranquil woodland its wonderful grounds are rich in archaeology, mining heritage and wildlife. The medieval garden, one of the most important in Europe, is currently undergoing a gradual program of restoration work.
To the south-west of the property, is Godolphin Hill, from where you can see some of the best views in Cornwall, with St Ives Bay to the north and St Michael’s Mount and Marazion to the south.
Its location, makes Ruth Dower an excellent base from which to explore the south west of Cornwall. The cottage is situated only a 10 mins drive from the ancient market town of Helston and about 25 mins from Falmouth and Penzance with their busy ports and bustling streets both provide plenty of interest to visitors. There are beaches, coves, fishing villages and walks to be explored and enjoyed on both the Penwith and Lizard Peninsulas which are only a short drive away and Hayle with its RNIB centre and the rugged seascape of Godrevy lie 15 mins drive to the north.
Truro is approx. 45mins drive and provides excellent shopping with a wide range of both national and independent retailers and a good range of facilities, restaurants, bars etc.
