Off theBeaten track
Loved my stay here. Is miles away from anything so if you are looking at getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this place is perfect.
The house is huge so plenty of room if you are in a group, beds and showers great. Thought it might be cold as it is so big but it was always warm.
The only downside for some may be no wifi but was not an issue for me for a week.
Fantastic break away
We had a lovely time away. Such a peaceful location and a stunning grand property to stay in.
We’d love to return I the future.
Fantastic Holiday Helsett
An excellent farmhouse for large families to explore North Cornwall. The house was well equipped, spacious kitchen with Aga, 5 large bedrooms - and very clean. The owners were friendly and helpful.
Lovely house, more space than you could ever need. All rooms large and the kitchen/breakfast room was wonderful. Always warm with the range on and a great focal point. Huge garden which the kids and dogs loved. Don't take a low sports car though as the access is a farm track, fine for all other vehicles though.
A wonderful sunny week at Helsett
Sarah and Robin are old family friends and I've been coming to Helsett all my life so I am slightly biased but for me it's the perfect place to be. Splendidly isolated in a beautiful setting. The garden is stunning, filled with foxgloves and ferns, and the house is huge, quirky and full of charm and everyone enjoyed learning to cook on the Aga. Highly recommended.
Great property for family get together
Loved this place huge kitchen with Aga which we used all the time. Rooms all comfortable and quirky. Big fridge ideal for stocking up for the family. Walking in woods and valley. Good seating outside. It is a car trip to the beach but the parking is only a fiver for the day and Black Rock is dog friendly to. I would say if you want "brand new" then this is not the place for you but we absolutely loved it. The owners were very friendly and farm great. Oh and don't take your Ferrari you will ground it up the lane.
The name Lesnewth is of Cornish origin and means 'New Court' that is 'a chieftan's estate'. Some of the oldest buildings of Lesnewth include the Church, the Rectory & the Mill. The village is situated approximately 2 miles east of Boscastle and 6 miles east of Tintagel. Boscastle is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. There is a pottery in the village and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline. Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.
