Helston Cottages

This historic town is known as the ‘Gateway to the Lizard' and is perfectly located for touring the far west of Cornwall from our Helston cottages. The town centre has an eclectic mix of small shops, cafes, historic cottages and fascinating buildings. As a result it has been the used as the backdrop for many a film and costume drama. Read more

There is a strong arts scene developing in Helston in conjunction with the town museum. The museum is a hidden gem, much bigger than you'd expect and housing many an interesting artefact and tale to be told. Here you can pick up the Town Trail, and follow the history of Helston around the ancient cottage lined streets, spotting Celtic crosses, medieval bridges and wells.

At the bottom of the town is the boating lake, with eco café and swan inhabited island. A skate park and children's play-area make this the ideal place to visit on holiday with the family for a bite to eat and a cup of tea. From here, you can carry on down the Cober Valley and explore the Penrose Estate with its well-trodden paths, all the way along the coastal path to Porthleven.

Outside the top end of town, many families who holiday in Helston visit the renowned Flambard theme park. With lots of rides, attractions and entertainment, there is also the strong historical context with a Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz exhibition, and a large indoor soft play centre for under elevens.

Helston is possibly best known for Flora Day, when the brass band belt out the floral dance tune made famous by Terry Wogan. The tradition of the furry dance, where locals dance through the streets in procession and dressed in all their finery, brings people from far and wide for a May holiday in Helston.
