  • "Beautiful, clean, well equipped cottage."

    Ideally situated to explore the lovely coastline and countryside around. As a mixed age group we all found things to interest us within a short drive and had a lovely week. We would recommend staying at Kilden Cottage.

    Thank you so much for the great feedback and so pleased that you had a lovely break! Best wishes, Denise and Roy Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable and beautifully decorated with great attention to detail."

    Loved the seaside themed pictures and ornaments but not overdone. Liked the neutral colour palette used. Everything we needed including a bottle of wine and ice left in the freezer! The garden was delightful with the summer house and seating area but unfortunately it wasn’t warm enough to sit out! We’ll be back I’m sure!

    Thank you for the lovely feedback! And hope that when you next visit, it will be warm enough to sit out and enjoy the garden. Our best wishes Property Owner

  • "Kilden Cottage is a wonderful place to stay and Denise and Roy are great hosts!"

    The cottage is very clean, cosy and comfortable and with two wood burners, as well as efficient heating, you are always warm! Our stay over Christmas was further enhanced by a Christmas tree in the dining area, more Christmas lights and decorations in the lounge and some Christmas treats! What a lovely surprise! The garden is ideal for dogs, being fully enclosed and secure with a high back gate which can be bolted. The location of Helston is perfect for visiting anywhere in West Cornwall. So many places are within an easy drive. Would definitely stay again!

    Thank you Sarah, we are delighted with your feedback and it has to be said that you were perfect guests! Property Owner

The property

This very well presented detached granite cottage sits back from a main thoroughfare on the outskirts of Helston market town, famed for its annual Flora Dance.

The town's facilities are a short walk away, with inns and shops for provisions.

Ideal for discovering the beautiful beaches and resorts of Porthleven, Praa Sands and Marazion, Kilden Cottage makes the perfect holiday homestay for couples, friends and families seeking a cottage within easy reach of the coast.

The interior boasts a rustic-meets-contemporary vibe with exposed stone walls in a natural finish, wood and flagstone floors and two wood burners for extra cosiness.

Socialise in a smart kitchen dining area with space for you and your dog. The sitting room has leather sofas and restful contemporary features.

The three bedrooms are well equipped for storage and complimented by themed interior colours reflecting the coast to support a restful sleep. The bathroom has a claw-foot roll top bath for extra luxury and separate shower cubicle.

Outside, the front and rear garden is enclosed with patio and lawn - perfect for pets and children to play, with BBQ and furniture for alfresco nibbles.

Ramblers, surfers, cyclists, garden enthusiasts, golf fans and cuisine lovers will enjoy the attractions close by.

National Trust's Penrose Estate, and Loe Pool, Cornwall's largest fresh water lake is a must visit spot.

Porthleven has a pretty harbour, eateries, galleries and inns with fresh local fayre.

Visit Poldark Mine, Flambards and the Seal Sanctuary.

Praa Sands is reached within a 15 minute drive and much loved resort of Marazion and stunning St Michael's Mount is a great place to spend the day.

The Lizard Peninsula and postcard perfect St Ives are all within a half hour drive.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
