  • "Lovely stay and caring owners."

    The apartment is very clean and tidy, also a superbly equipped kitchen!! Plus it is very, very spacious and comfortable ( the photos do not do it justice ). Lovely views across the fields and to the sea. It’s so easy to get into Helston and Penzance. Plus easy enough to drive to St Michaels Mount or Lands End to see the sun set. From the great welcome and bonus of a cream tea to leaving we had such a wonderful time thank you !!

  • "Lovely accommodation with marvellous views."

    It was very quiet. Well equipped for self catering. Within 30 to 40 mins of lots of places of interest. Plenty of parking space. Sadly on site cafe closed but Queens Arms at Breage served excellent food as did the mussel shoal at Porthleven Harbour. Yummy cream tea and fruit meringues welcomed us on arrival

  • "Fabulous accommodation, spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds, lots of storage for clothes in the bedrooms & cupboards in the kitchen."

    Stunning views from the balcony. Loved the balcony from the main bedroom, very private & a fabulous sunbathing spot. Occasional jets flying over from Culdrose (which we loved) 3 large supermarkets a couple of miles drive Local pub in Breage serves lovely, reasonable meals. A few places we visited Lands end, Lizard point, Penzance, Falmouth, Carbis Bay, Sennen Cove, Porthcurno, Marazion, St Michael's Mount There are so many stunning beaches with turquoise water & places of interest to visit all within easy reach (with a car) Home from home with added extras, you will not be disappointed Fabulous holiday with superb hosts.

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.
