Tucked away at the top of Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula and just a short hop from some of the UK’s best beaches is where you’ll find the charming town of Helston. History and tradition are woven into every inch of its stunning streets. Stroll slowly past rows of quaint miners’ cottages and get ready to tuck into plenty of hearty meals in Helston’s collection of centuries-old pubs.

Helston’s unique location in between two stretches of Cornish coastline makes it a brilliant place to stay for a beach break. Journey west to Porthleven to stroll along its picturesque harbourfront. You could also enjoy a refreshing swim at gorgeous Porthleven Beach or in the crystal-clear waters of Looe Pool — the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall. Why not venture south along the Lizard Heritage Coast to picture-perfect villages and fishing ports like Mullion and Gunwalloe?

Visiting Cornwall with kids in tow? Helston won’t disappoint with its range of family-friendly attractions. Enjoy an exhilarating day on the rides at Flamabrds Theme Park on the edge of the town or head east to Gweek at the mouth of the Helford River to meet the resident seals, otters and penguins at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. Finding the perfect base for your Cornwall escape is made easy with Cottage Holidays. We’ve got a huge range of accommodation options in Helston, no matter if you’re travelling solo, with your other half or in a big group. After something a little out of the ordinary? Treat yourself to a stay at a holiday cottage featuring a hot tub, fireplace and heaps of other luxe extras.
