    “Beautiful, clean, well equipped cottage.”

    Ideally situated to explore the lovely coastline and countryside around. As a mixed age group we all found things to interest us within a short drive and had a lovely week.

Set back from a main thoroughfare on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Helston, the accommodation is comfortable and well presented with an enclosed garden with lawn, patio, BBQ and garden furniture for dining under the sun.

Kilden Cottage will appeal to ramblers, surfers, garden enthusiasts, golf fans and cuisine lovers, who can enjoy the attractions close by.

About the location


Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

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. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.
