Hazel Cottage will appeal to ramblers, surfers, garden enthusiasts, golf fans and cuisine lovers, who can enjoy the attractions close by. National Trust's Penrose Estate, and Loe Pool, Cornwall's largest fresh water lake is a go-to location. The charming fishing village of Porthleven has eateries galore for all tastes, galleries for browsing and traditional quayside inns with fresh local fayre on the menu. Sandy Praa Sands beach is reached within a 15 minute drive with surf school and oceanside café for refreshment.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences.
