    “Firstly, we had to share the courtyard seating area, this was monopolised by the people staying next door; I did enquire when booking the cottage if there was anyone close by but your adviser did not know, so we never had the chance to sit out over the weekend.”

    They also had THREE dogs one of which did not like mine so that made getting in and out of "our" bit awkward. Then there was the problem with the oven not working which to be fair I was advised about by the owner. The overall cleanliness was good but the cob webs hanging from the beams would have looked better in a Charles Dickens Drama. The actual location needs much TLC because upon arrival you could be mistaken for staying in a derelict farm yard, with a lot of over grown vegetation growing ...

    They also had THREE dogs one of which did not like mine so that made getting in and out of "our" bit awkward. Then there was the problem with the oven not working which to be fair I was advised about by the owner. The overall cleanliness was good but the cob webs hanging from the beams would have looked better in a Charles Dickens Drama. The actual location needs much TLC because upon arrival you could be mistaken for staying in a derelict farm yard, with a lot of over grown vegetation growing around the vicinity; not very welcoming after a 6 hour drive. We also had issues with the hot water and the water supply, both of which had no Instruction guidance in the information pack. However our "host" Sarah Hayes was helpful and did her best to resolve these two problems. I did have concerns when making my booking because of the picture of the courtyard, it looks ok on the web site but it looks more untidy now. There is also building work in progress to ADD to this now complex (which did not interfere with us) so although yes, this is a tranquil and rural location, we did have to share, which we did not expect to have to do.

The property

Helston 4 miles.

A charming semi-detached cottage, converted from a 200-year old traditional Cornish granite barn, set in the peaceful and beautiful hamlet of Bodilly.

Less than five miles from the historic market town of Helston, this cottage has an upside down layout; with two bedrooms and a family bathroom, this is ideal for a small family, and with a very spacious open plan living area boasting a woodburning stove, all of the family can gather together in the evening to discuss the day's activities.

The interesting features include exposed beams, thick granite stone walls and a sunny balcony.

Set up a family tournament on the table tennis table in the stable yard, where there is also ample space in an adjacent barn to store bikes and outdoor equipment.

Within just twenty miles of your holiday home, you can find the wonderful St Michael’s Mount at Marazion, the Falmouth Maritime Museum and a range of quaint Cornish villages including St Ives and Porthleven.

With all the attractions of Helston, the Lizard Peninsula and the dramatic Cornish coastal walks, this cottage makes for a unique holiday destination.

About the location

HELSTON

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.
