    "We wanted a complete 'away from it all' type of accommodation and Poldark fulfilled this. It was perfect for ourselves and our dog. The owners were the perfect hosts, there if we needed them but unobtrusive. Thank you to your staff who were so helpful when we were booking with just 24 hours notice.

The property

Helston 4 miles.

A charming holiday cottage, converted from a 200-year old traditional Cornish granite barn, set in the peaceful and beautiful hamlet of Bodilly.

Less than five miles from the historic market town of Helston, this cottage has an upside down layout to take advantage of the attractive view of the garden, and the tranquil, rural farmland beyond.

With two bedrooms and a family bathroom, this is ideal for a small family, and with a very spacious open plan living area boasting a woodburning stove, all of the family can gather together in the evening to discuss the day's activities.

The interesting features include exposed beams, thick granite stone walls and a sunny balcony.

Set up a family tournament on the table tennis table in the stable yard, where there is also ample space in an adjacent barn to store bikes and outdoor equipment.

Within just twenty miles of your holiday home, you can find the wonderful St Michael’s Mount at Marazion, the Falmouth Maritime Museum and a range of quaint Cornish villages including St Ives and Porthleven.

With all the attractions of Helston, the Lizard Peninsula and the dramatic Cornish coastal walks, this cottage makes for a unique holiday destination.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area.
