  • “Rose cottage was perfect set in a quiet village away from the hustle and bustle of tourist filled towns.”

    However, you are within 15-30 mins of everything you need in a beautiful part of the country. From secluded coves to beautiful harbours.

The property

Situated at the North end of the endearing Lizard Peninsula, on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Helston, is this detached dwelling, Rose Cottage.

This superb countryside retreat is perfect for two couples or a small family seeking to explore an area steeped with glorious beaches, quaint fishing ports and to dine within award-winning restaurants specialising in freshly caught seafood.

The interior boasts a wonderful blend of character and contemporary, with the carefully selected furnishings and quality features complementing the beams and the stone-flagged floors.

Be welcomed into the sitting room, where the woodburning stove takes centre stage before the two plush leather sofas that await you after an action-packed day, which you can sink into and tune into the TV.

If you seek a moment or two away from the rest of the group, head into the small snug room, where you can cosy up with a good book in hand to truly unwind before heading to bed.

Beyond here is the contemporary kitchen, where you can whip up delicious evening meals before gathering your loved ones at the dining table to enjoy a sociable evening.

As the evening draws to a close, venture up the staircase to find two well-presented bedrooms, each boasting a refreshing ambiance and ample storage to house all of your personal belongings.

To the outside, you can spend a moment or two within the superb garden, where your canine companions are free to roam the lawn whilst you dine alfresco on the patio area.

Venture to the town of Helston, where you will be delighted to find a superb selection of pubs, restaurants and takeaways, as well as a number of shops for picking up the essentials.

Look forward to soaking up the sun at the nearby beach of Rinsey Cove, where you will be delighted to find the historical landmarks of Rinsey Head and the Wheal Prosper Tin Mine.

Alternatively, venture further afield to the breath-taking Kynance Cove where you will be mesmerised by the white sands and the turquoise waters, or head to the picturesque fishing harbour of St Ives where you will be delighted by the superb amenities that await you.

Rose Cottage is an outstanding base for exploring with loved ones.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

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. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
