  • "Great location however the Beehive club next door is awful if you are thinking about booking this be mindful that you will not get any sleep Thursday to Sunday morning."

    Everyone comes out of the club at 3am and stay one the street outside until silly o’clock. We left today at 4am and police were just outside because of fighting. No ideal at all Bathroom needs resealing as looks really scruffy and the nets at the window are awful. Our friends were next door and the noise for them was awful

  • "The property was lovely and clean and modern, very well presented and cared for."

    Loved the little touch with the welcome tray thank you, the beer and biscuits went down well on the first night. Personally the mattress and pillows were too soft, but that's just me. It would have been nice to be able to open the windows in the bedroom as it was very warm. A very enjoyable stay at The Dynar.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, we are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Dynar. Property Owner

  • "The apartment was excellent, so clean, good location, well equipped."

    My only comment would be a couple of coat hooks for outdoor coats would be useful! Otherwise excellent, would definitely recommend.

    Hi Jackie, Thank you so much for your kind feedback. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I will look into installing some coat hooks onto the door. We hope to welcome you back soon :) Property Owner

The property

Sitting in an elevated position just above the high street in Helston, Cornwall, yet away from the hustle and bustle is this beautifully presented, first-floor apartment, The Dynar.

With a name paying homage to its heritage (Dynar being Cornish for coin), this former bank is the perfect base for couples, a small family or even a or solo traveller and their furry friends to explore this scenic county, complete with Smart TVs and finishing touches such as complimentary slippers and toiletries.

Take the stairs up to the apartment, where an inviting kitchen/living room offers all you need for a relaxed, self-catering stay, including a handy washer/dryer; rustle up dinner for your other half before enjoying a film on the Smart TV as you cuddle up.

Get some rest in one of two bedrooms, also fitted with Smart TV and a plush double bed, perfect for lazy mornings.

Wake up with a shower in the shower room and get ready for the day while wrapped in a toasty towel, courtesy of the heated towel rail.

Step out onto the local high street, where you will find a fabulous selection of shops, pubs and restaurants to choose from when you don't fancy cooking; the town of Helston has everything you need for staying in or going out!

Within the town, you can explore the local history with a visit to the Museum of Cornish Life.

Just a few miles away you can find a wealth of beaches and coves to discover, including Porthleven Beach, Low Bar and Nichols Cove.

In Porthleven, you can find Porthleven Harbour, a historical harbour known for its picturesque views, as well as a handful of charming eateries.

Further afield, the beautiful town of Falmouth offers a culture-filled day out; make your way around Penryn Museum or perhaps venture down to the Castle View Beach for views over Pendennis Castle, which you can later head down to for some of the best estuary views in the area.

The Dynar is a fabulous base and romantic retreat for a Cornish break, any time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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 it's 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.
