  • "A lovely few days stay at Helford despite very wet weather."

    Helford is a very attractive, clean, warm and comfortable cottage and our family of 5 (4 adults) had plenty of space. Very comfortable beds and plenty of towels. Owner apologised on our arrival that the dishwasher had broken the previous week. A surprising lack of glasses - just 3 tumblers which meant we had to use the wine glasses for water / soft drinks! An easy fix that would make a difference. Would recommend Helford for families and adult groups and we would definitely consider returning in the future.

  • "What a lovely find for a large family."

    There were 8 of us stopping and there was plenty of room for us all. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The location was beautiful and the younger people in our family really enjoyed the added bonus of the pub. It was such a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the views which im sure would of been even nicer had it not of rained so much. There was a lovely walk across the owners field to the lake which even on a cold miserable day was still beautiful The only small thing we would of liked a few more glasses in the property, I'm presuming that over time other guests have broken them and they have not been replaced and we only had one key which wasn't a massive issue because we just left the key in the bar, but had there been other quests staying I'm not sure I would of wanted to do that.

  • "The owner, Ian, welcomed us as we arrived."

    He was so lovely, really nice and very helpful to say the least! As you walk in the property, it was stunning. You can really tell a lot of hard work and dedication has been put on there! We thought that was it but the views, the animals, the bar were all unexpected and it was such a massive added bonus! Including the pool table! We sadly didn’t get to use the hot tub as we didn’t have the time to but the views were amazing from where the hot tub was situated. A nice, calming and peaceful area. You also get your own private parking that’s labelled which I thought was really nice. A lake was also nearby for a nice walk. The property was spotless and everything we needed was available. The beds were comfortable and so were the pillows. The property was also infant friendly with a high chair and a cot available for use. The living and kitchen area was spacious. The only downside was that the exhaust was not working in the kitchen but that’s a very minor issue! It did not ruin our stay at all one bit. The place was very easy to find in addition was relatively close to a lot of places. I have already recommended this place to many of my friends and will definitely come back in the near foreseeable future! Highly highly recommend!

    Does need some maintenance,just little things, maybe a few more items in the kitchen. Owners were welcoming and friendly. Would definitely stay again. Only advice house gets very hot in warmer months so take a fans/ fans. But overall stay was lovely, we didn't want to leave.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Helford cottage however there were several issue that seriously let the property down."

    When we first arrive and were greeted by Ian he started by listing issue with the cottage/premises that hadn’t been fixed (all of which he blames a various pre opus guests) however the more we looked round the property we came to realise that this list was a complete list as not only were there broken toilet seats (that cause injury to my niece) but there were missing plugs, loose kitchen fitting, missing handles of both furniture and patio doors, one of the en-suite showers it’s sellotaped to the wall beneath a ceiling that is black with mould. There are a lot of additional extra at the property such as the bar, though stated in the listing it is stocked with soft drinks this is not the case, it also doesn’t look to of been cleaned since the property opened in 2017! The hot tub comes with a changing area that no one in our group used as it also doesn’t look to of been cleaned. The hot tub is a nice additional with a stunning view, Ian does seem to maintain it through the week but potentially needs to do this more frequently as often it was dose so highly that it bleached several people swim wear. The closer we looked at the Helford cottage itself we realised this was a continuous theme and all the beams and ceilings are covered in cobwebs and thick dust. Ian was helpful during our stay offering to supply us with disposable bbqs when we found out the ones listed (and the ones we enquired about) weren’t in working order. We had a lovely stay at the Helford cottage but felt that the upkeep and maintenance of the whole sight really let it down.

    We loved the goats and pony and was able to feed them carrots,they were very friendly.We would recommend a visit to the Ferryboat Inn serving a great menu with stunning views across the harbour. We were a group of five and had plenty of room with our own bathrooms and privacy,maybe an extra wardrobe would have been useful.

    Friendly owners very accommodating, and kids loves the fact there were animals. Only down side was the additional cost for use of the hot tub. It’s charged on a weekly basis, as we were only there for a weekend it proved quite costly for our party of 8. Also lovely little bar area , great idea and we loved using it but it was cold as radiator didn’t seem to work… tricky as we stayed in November..!!! We would def stay again.

I am disabled but managed to get about there and the clean air made breathing much easier. I managed a slow walk for almost a mile, when in London I cant manage more than 50yds.

  • "Myself and 7 others stayed in the Helford cottage for 3 nights."

    Lovely location, with a short walk down to the river where there is a small cafe called Wild Vibes where we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. The cottage was close to both Truro and Falmouth, and was big enough for all 8 of us comfortably. Upon arrival, we had a hamper of bread, eggs and butter, plus there was ice in the freezer which was excellent. The bed was extremely comfortable, the kitchen was lovely and modern and there was an excellent view from the first floor. The only negative comment I would make is that the kitchen sides had crumbs on them from the previous tennants when we arrived, and the bathrooms could have had a slightly deeper clean, but other than that the cottage was lovely and clean and homely. The hosts left us to it for the stay, and kindly heated up some hot water for drinks on the last morning as there was a power cut in the area. We were incredibly happy with the stay and would definitely come back! Thank you

Famous for its mild climate, this quieter part of Cornwall has the outstanding gardens of Trebah, Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Carwinion all within 4 miles. For nature lovers and those who enjoy boats, the misty reaches of the Helford River meander upstream to Gweek, where the world-renowned Seal Sanctuary looks after the region’s many abandoned and injured seals. Falmouth, with its narrow streets, natural harbour and National Maritime Museum is just a short journey by car, while Flambards theme park (8 miles) and Argal Lake with its water sports attractions make great days out. The nearby beautiful Lizard Peninsula, with its outstanding beaches and quaint fishing villages dotting the rocky coastline, has the benefit of outstanding scenery, tranquillity, and some great walks.
