Patricia Harman purchased this House in 2010
Why Patricia Harman chose Helston
We saw the house about 12 years ago while walking along the coastal path and because of its truly stunning location it took our breathes away. Like many people before and after us, we dreamt of owning a home like this.We came back every year for afternoon tea and became friendly with the owners who assured us that they would only ever leave the house in a box! We are happy to report that they are alive and well and living a few miles down the coast! We still pinch ourselves as we often cannot believe that this particular dream did indeed come true! The Lizard Peninsular is steeped in history and with beautiful gardens and walks, museums, theatres, galleries, theme parks, maritime centres and wildlife reserves, there is something for everyone.
What makes this House unique
Peace, quiet and total relaxation. We can be as active or lazy as the fancy takes us. With miles of wonderful walks, golf, beaches with swimming or surfing, award winning restaurants, museums and gardens on the doorstep or a short drive away we are spoilt for choice. On the other hand if you just want to sit and contemplate, there are few places that can compete with this truly unique setting.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
One of a kind property with amazing views
We had a wonderful 8 day stay in the house. It is a truly special property. You have miles of beach to walk along and admire the views and amazing sunsets right at your doorsteps. Great hiking trail runs right in front of the house. Most of Cornwall's landmarks and attractions are within an hour drive.
House has everything you might need during your stay. Kitchen is well and fully equipped.
There is a pub serving great food 5 minute walk away, Helston with several big stores is within 12-15 minute drive.
The owners have been very responsive and the booking process went really well.
Overall, we couldn't recommend this property more. Really hope to come back!
What a Find!!!
Brilliant holiday - inspite of some very misty / murky weather. We did get lovely sunny weather at the end of the week though! House location perfect (well almost) and the house is not a house, it's a home. the Aga was wonderful, to me it is such an added bonus, I loved using it. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home, it was a real pleasure. All the added extras really make the difference too, very much appreciated.
Can't wait to go again, and am sure that we will, so keep up / improve the maintenance and we'll be there again.
Beautiful clifftop house
We spent 5 nights here in this very beautiful house, with lovely spaces to sit and watch the sea outside and in - and good walks to nearby beaches and villages along the coast. The house is well-equipped and the kitchen has everything you need, and then some! A lovely place to stay!
Thank you for your kind words!
It was a pleasure having you to stay.
Perfect place to be
Ein wunderbares Haus, gemütlich und schön eingerichtet, perfekt gelegen, so nah wie eben möglich an Klippe und Wasser, mit einem unglaublichen Meerblick. Bei jedem Wetter ein Wohlfühlort mit sehr netten und aufmerksamen Gastgebern. Wir haben jeden Moment genossen.
We loved the home and location. If you like to walk the trails along the ocean, this location can't be beat. The home is lovely and has a very warm homey atmosphere. Arriving to the scones and cakes was such a lovely gesture. There is one restaurant within walking difference that we enjoyed. We are Poldark fans and could not believe how close the filming locations are. It was a magical vacation to get away from our busy lives.
Thank you, Deanne! Yes, much of Poldark is filmed within spitting distance of the house! We are very lucky to share the most wonderful sunsets day after day, and walk the beaches and headland so beloved of Demelza and Ross!
Amazing house with a great view
The house is amazing. Everything was so lovely prepared and the house and you have everything what you need. The beach is 2 min away and we had such a great view (we saw dolphins and seals) The food walking way is in front of the house, but there wasn't many people who walked there (easter break)
The well come with scones, cake, great bottle of wine was so lovely. We will come definitely back.
Thank you for your kind words! It was a great pleasure having you and thank you for taking such care of our home. We hope to welcome you again in the future.
