Holiday Cottages in Helston & Porthleven
On May 8th each year the streets of Helston echo to the melodious strains of the "Flora Dance" as locals dance through the streets to celebrate the arrival of Spring. An ancient pageant dating back to medieval times it is an event not to be missed. A lovely walk extends from the bottom of the town through the peaceful estate of Penrose past Loe Pool, the largest natural freshwater lake in the county created by the formation of a large shingle bank between Porthleven and Gunwalloe.
A cobbled quayside with boats at anchor within a granite walled harbour is quintessential to Porthleven. Here time can be idled away leisurely watching the ebb and flow of the tide from one of the restaurants or Inns that cluster around it.
