One of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in!

Mr Kevin M,

Lovely property with countryside views close to a great pub

Mr Ian G,

Chy Kala was everything we wanted from a Cornish holiday cottage. Well-equipped, lovely location and peaceful at night and just a short walk to the Prince of Wales pub which was very good for food. A big thank you for the lovely cream tea on arrival, delicious!

Ian and J,

Lovely cottage, very comfortable. Glendurgan Gardens lovely to see, take the ferry from Helford and it's a short walk up the road. Helford is very pretty but the shop closes at 3pm, so buy ice creams early! Lovely coastal walk from the Lizard to Kynance Cove and beyond. Even the gloomy weather did not spoil the fun!

Previous Customer,

Thank you for such a fantastic stay at Chy Kala. The cottage is gorgeous as well as the surrounding areas. We love how eco-friendly the house is, and you are fantastic hosts.

So Family,

Had a great time here during our 2nd visit. Enjoyed Frenchmans Creek walk and the Flora Day celebrations in Helston.

Shenton Family,

Lovely cottage, beautiful daffodil field and lovely stars at night.

Previous Customer,

Lovely, clean property, well-equipped kitchen and spotless pots and pans, comfy beds and cosy wood burner. Very much enjoyed the welcome pack provided. Cornish Horizons staff were friendly and efficient. Communication was good. Would recommend.

Miss C K,

Lovely warm, homely house. Felt like home from home. Great weather for October. Fab to sit in the garden and look at the stars. Enjoyed trips to Falmouth, St Ives, Poldhu Cove and Church Cove where a photo shoot took place for Poldark! Enjoyed the burger night at the Prince of Wales pub over the road. Thanks for a great holiday x

The Hayes family,

Had a great two week holiday, the boys loved staying here. Many thanks.

The Bedford family,

Great stay at Chy Kala. Lovely comfortable stay and great base to explore the area. We had a couple of great meals at The Prince of Wales pub over the road. Thank you Mark for your hospitality, we'll be back! :-)

Previous Customer,


Helford is an idyllic little village set on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.

The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!

Helford is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm family favourite, Flambards. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.
