  • "The Lodge is in a beautifully quiet, farm location away from other houses & free from passing traffic."

    It has been built to a very high standard of finish with minute attention to detail. All fixtures, fittings, furniture, linen etc are top notch quality and the log burner keeps the lodge toastie. The weather was pouring and blowing a gale during my stay, just as I like it, the lodge was the cosiest place, and for me, preferable even to a well equipped cottage. Only regret.....should have booked that second week. Doh. Thanks Meg

  • "We were honoured to be the first Guests at Sycamore Lodge and were met by Meg the owner."

    There was also a lovely surprise waiting for us, a bottle of wine, scones, jam and cream. The lodge was beautifully decorated with high quality furnishings and also a log burner. It is an ideal romantic lodge for two, although it is on a working farm, so there was some noise from the cows. We have been staying at various locations for over 20 years and this one we did enjoy for our short break. Falmouth and Penzance are also within easy reach of the Lodge.

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.
