At the northern end of The Lizard peninsula in West Cornwall, our holiday cottages in Helston are in a town famed for its annual medieval Furry Dance (Flora Dance to the locals), well positioned just 12 miles from Penzance and 9 miles from Falmouth and in a wonderful position for enjoying the stunning Lizard Peninsula.

Head out from your self-catering holiday cottage in Helston for the day to enjoy the second oldest town in Cornwall where tales of Saxons go back to the 6th century and a charter was granted to the town in 1201. History since then has seen the town prosper as a tin mine and relics of Helston’s dramatic past can be found all around town – as can they be found throughout the Lizard Peninsula.

From your cottage in Helston you may well want to visit the Helston Museum full of historic memories, follow the Helston Town Trail from the Guildhall to learn even more, explore the National Trust Penrose Estate on foot or bicycle, or take a ride on the Helston Railway – an ongoing steamy restoration project. The town also has all the conveniences you need on holiday including two grocery stores and a petrol station.

We’ve found a marvelous selection of cottages for you in Helston and our holiday lettings here make an ideal base for exploring the rich local culture and history, or heading out to other nearby attractions and beaches, including the famous Cornwall surf break at Porthleven, and the beaches at Gunwalloe, Poldhu Cove and Mullion Cove – to name but a few! From here, you’re also only an easy 40 minute drive from Land’s End and all that lies in between.

Absolutely beautiful cottage in an idyllic location. The cleanliness of the cottage was first class with added covid measures in place such as the QR code for the app and a hand sanitiser dispenser on entry to the property.
The owners left a welcome hamper made up of all local produce, scones, milk, clotted cream , teabags, biscuits etc. Which I have to say tasted so much better than supermarket brought items.
If you’re looking for peace and quiet away from all the hustle and bustle, enjoy nature and love home comforts this place is definitely the place to go.
I would certainly go back and would recommend it to family and friends.

If foggy at night, be prepared for the 30 second snooze alarm, the fog horn at Lizard point. Apart from that we found the Bass Point Cottage ticked all the boxes for us, isolated, virtually on the coastal path.
