Christmas Cottage is located beautifully within the heart of the exclusive village of Helford, regarded by many as one of the most idyllic locations in Cornwall. Offering character two bedroomed accommodation, this former fisherman’s cottage has been comprehensively renovated and benefits from both front and rear gardens as well as the very rare feature of private parking for two vehicles directly in front of the house.  

Retaining many of its original features, which include characterful beams, a walk-in Inglenook fireplace in the dining room, an open fire in the lounge and a traditional carved Cornish porch, Christmas Cottage is a delight.

This is perfect walking territory, so picturesque and tranquil in a very well-preserved corner of Cornwall. There’s a fantastic local village pub which is a must and the magical Lizard Peninsula is easily explorable from here. Be sure to bring your camera as you’ll have plenty of opportunity for photography here.

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.
