    “Our hosts were welcoming and informative but also respected our privacy.”

    The cottage was well equipped and the little extras provided were above and beyond expectations. Spotlessly clean and very cosy. We are very particular and cannot fault it! Lovely location and would highly recommend this cottage to everyone.

The property

Nestled within the hamlet of Trenear near Helston, next to the owner's home, lies this contemporary barn conversion, The Dairy.

Originally used as a dairy to the owner’s farm, the building has been beautifully renovated to welcome family, friends and couples seeking a relaxing break to Cornwall.

With slate flooring, exposed granite and a state-of-the-art infrared eco heating system, the quality of this accommodation hasn’t been spared.

Step inside and discover the open-plan living space, offering a refreshing place to unwind, cook and socialise with the group.

Allow the chef of the company to get acquainted in the kitchen, boasting a sleek presentation with grey units and integrated appliances, sure to inspire some home-cooking.

Prepare the dining table for a filling feast before lounging on the sofa, getting comfortable as the woodburning stove provides a gentle warmth to the room.

Move into the bedrooms to catch some sleep, offering king-size and super-king-size options, with the latter housing zip/link beds for extra flexibility.

Enjoy a soothing soak in the bathroom or begin your day with a refreshing shower.

The excellence of The Dairy continues outside, where a set of patio furniture and barbecue create the perfect alfresco setting, whilst the backdrop of the rural countryside instantly puts you at ease.

Helston is a thriving market town, packed with quirky shops and cafés where you can pick up a morning coffee, but for waterside eateries we suggest you head to Porthleven, a picturesque fishing port of the south coast.

There are plenty of excellent options here including the superb fushion restaurant Kota.

The surrounding area is filled with delightful fishing villages, pretty coves, sandy beaches and beautiful walking paths – Kynance Cove, Mullion and Coverack are all great options for picture-postcard prettiness.

Head to Flambards Family Theme Park for thrilling rides, or for something a little more leisurely, visit the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River or immerse yourself in the area’s past by visiting the nearby Poldark Mine.

Those looking to spend some time on sand will find a plethora of beautiful beaches along the coastline, or join the scenic South West Coast Path and explore the region on foot.

With all this, plus plenty more to see and do, a stay at The Dairy provides both an action-packed and relaxing retreat, all-year-round.

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.
