The location is really handy for Helston, the Helford River, lovely beaches, great walks, and there's great coffee in Porthleven. The house was ample for us, and we thought the garden was beautiful and the horses made it magical for the kids. The house had great instructions for what to see and where to eat. The owners were incredibly friendly and welcoming - they could not have been nicer.

Our highlights and favourite places were the Seal Sanctuary (kids) and amazing coffee in Porthleven (grownups) and Kynance cove and Poldhu cove.
