The cottage is close to amenities in town centre. Lovely cosy cottage.

The cottage was so comfortable & lovely to stay in - lots of room & beautifully decorated. The location was great too, a couple of miles walk/cycle to Loe Pool, easy to get to local beaches or onto the main road to get further afield like Marazion or Penzance - it was a great week!

This is a true find in the heart of Cornwall! Absolutely stunning minimalist yet tastefully done interiors; a perfect central location close to nearby shops; and incredibly friendly hosts. The property is also much bigger than it looks! We would recommend to anyone seeking a short break or extended stay to live and work in Cornwall.

A beautiful cottage, perfectly designed and decorated!

Comfortable beds, stylish interior, location, access to shops- very nice phone call from Sue prior to arrival and helpful advice during the trip also.The only minor things I’d recommend are a better tin opener and maybe providing some kitchen roll for guests to use. But other than that the place is great, really comfortable and a fantastic base for our Cornwall trip. We’d definitely consider coming back to the property again for future holidays.

The Trusty Servant is a smart and stylish cottage, located very nicely in Helston. It has been thoughtfully decorated and appointed, with pretty much everything you need provided! The owner was friendly and more than supportive in answering the queries we had.

We would certainly consider returning to the cottage and to Helston as it is so convenient for exploring Cornwall, and particularly the Coast Path.

The Trusty Servant was an absolute dream, I cannot recommend it enough. It was beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean and the welcome gifts were very kind. Also the local recommendations in the welcome book were great- especially New Yard Restaurant. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much.

Trusty Servant certainly measured up to expectations. Great location as a base to explore the remoter parts of Cornwall and at the same time have access to amenities in Helston.

The property is in excellent condition very spacious and the welcome pack of goodies was much appreciated.

A beautifully decorated and well kitted out cottage. Situated in the gorgeous town of Helston with all the delights of Cornwall on the doorstep.

Absolutely beautiful cottage with “scandi” feel, minimalist decor. Owners have thought of everything! Lovely location in the town with a little courtyard patio which really is a lovely little sun trap.

Only downside is the parking, which we found a little tricky finding in the busier summer months. Also tricky loading and unloading the little kids outside the property. Situated down the rd from the pub, which meant we woke up a few times by a few rowdy clientele.

These are all small downsides though. I’d highly recommend this property!!
