    We had a wonderful week in the old farmhouse, upon arrival we had fresh flowers and cream teas which was a lovely welcoming touch. The house it’s self is spacious and well equipped for families.

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.
