Imagine yourself relaxing on the beautiful veranda of Fern View enjoying a cool drink after a day of exploring the fascinating villages and coves of The Lizard Peninsula. This charming, private annexe of the owner's home overlooks a splendid fern garden with its abundant planting and pretty borders. Inside it is beautifully furnished and the delightful accommodation, coupled with the convenient location, is likely to ensure a fabulous visit to this part of Cornwall.

The town of Helston, which is positioned at the gateway to The Lizard Peninsula, has a strong historical feel and is best known for the annual Furry Dance (known locally as the Flora Dance) which is believed to date back to medieval times. Locally you can enjoy a country walk through the wooded Penrose Estate to Loe Bar, discover more about the history with a visit to the Museum or enjoy a pint of local Spingo Ale in the 600 year old Blue Anchor pub. A 10 minute drive will take you to the harbour town of Porthleven with its choice of fresh seafood restaurants and a little further to the pretty beaches of Poldhu and Gunwalloe. Be sure to check out the spectacular Kynance Cove, one of the most photgraphed locations in Cornwall.

Local Area

The town of Helston is lively and friendly with a busy main street, full of charming independent shops and plenty of historical attractions, giving the town a lovely traditional feel. The boating lake, park and café are great for families and the well-known visitor attractions of Flambards and The Cornish Seal Sanctuary are also both nearby and make excellent days out for all age groups.

Positioned at the gateway to The Lizard Peninsula, you will find numerous picturesque coves and sandy beaches for you to enjoy within easy driving distance including Porthleven, Poldhu, Mullion and many more. Nestled between the rocks and cliffs of this coastline, are many quaint fishing villages including Coverack, Cadgwith, Portholland and St Keverne which have hardly altered over the years. The Lizard Peninsula is an area which remains unspoilt by industry, and is definitely a real Cornish gem!


The owners were lovely and went way above what they needed to do to make us feel welcome.Mr David Ferns - 3rd September 2018
The owner went to a lot of time and effort to offer many little luxuries to make our stay very comfortable. Over and above what had been expected.Mrs Jennifer Durkin - 4th August 2018
This is a very nice, high class property. The hosts are extremely thoughtful and make their holiday makers feel at home. The local area has every convenience with two supermarkets and a garage near by. The high street has lots of interesting shops and coffee shops. There are very nice beaches nearby. Mr Robert Dudman - 24th July 2018
Perfect property for getting away from it all.Melissa Joy - 28th May 2018
We returned to Fern View nearly 2 years after our first visit (delighted to actually get booked this year!) to find the same warm welcome and the very high standards we enjoyed on our first visit. It is a peaceful well appointed retreat within easy walking distance of the town and an ideal base for exploring West Cornwall. Highly recommended!Mrs Moira McDonald - 28th April 2018
Personal contact with the owner and the extras they provided are the best we've ever had.Ms Barbara Hughes - 19th March 2018
Great welcome from Odette & Bill. We loved the Cornish tea! Comfortable and very high spec accommodation: obviously a lot of thought has gone into design, fixtures & fittings - and into the whole experience really. Thanks for a wonderful stay.The Spades - 13th October 2017
Very high standard. Delightful.Mr Robert Dudman - 17th July 2017
Beautiful gardensMrs Ann Evans - 17th July 2017
If you are reading this you have hit the jackpot!! there can be no nicer place to stay in Cornwall. The goodies were not good for our waistline - but we are on holiday so who cares. Thank you for everything.Angie & Bill - 7th July 2017
Excellent accommodation, I would strongly recommend it to couples.Mrs Chris Robey - 20th June 2017
The hospitality from Odette and Bill was second to none - the cottage was exceptional in all ways.Mrs Pauline Burton - 20th February 2017
We have really enjoyed our stay in this lovely accommodation, beautifully appointed and great location for our tour of the South of the country. We particularly liked the home touches with the welcoming scones and cream, plus the basic provisions to get our holiday off to a great start. Will be highly recommended by us!Dr Pickup - 13th August 2016
A lovely stay in this well equipped cottage- it's very clean with some very nice personal touches such as scones, eggs and lights on the decking. Also a very friendly welcome- thank you!Sammy and Arabella - 28th July 2016
We cannot fault the lovely Cornish welcome we have received. We would like to have stayed on longer in this idyllic haven but life goes on!Mr Mayfield - 7th July 2016
