Lovely cottage with all the facilities that you could possibly need

Mrs B,

This is one of the best appointed cottages we have stayed in for years. Just about everything has been thought of by the owners to make a holiday stay perfect and it is a property of which they should be proud. The kitchen and bathrooms are state of the art and spotless and the beds and bedding really comfortable and of high quality. The house is tastefully decorated and the information packs detailed, labelled and up to date. Add to this the location, which is idyllic, this cottage is a great place to stay.

Mr C,

We have visited this property previously and never been disappointed.

Miss T,

Fantastic stay: perfect location, comfy bed and good communication from the hosts/Cornish Horizons. 100% would book again.

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.
