Things to do in Helston

Helston was once a thriving port town way back when in 1201 it received its official charter. Sadly the river eventually silted up and the port of Helston became no more. The Loe Bar, a sweeping sand bar, now separates the sea from the freshwater lake in Helston. Today, Helston holiday cottages are the perfect base to explore this most gorgeous part of England.

-Godolphin House is the privately owned Tudor Mansion that has roots dating back to the 14th Century, when building of the Grade I mansion was started. It was the private home of the Godolphin family, a seriously wealthy family who made their millions from Cornish tin. With more than 100 rooms, expansive ceiling beams carved in the 16th century, the finest furniture and a sweeping equestrian section, this is a magnificent historic site not to be missed.

-The Folk Museum was built in the late 1800s and used to be known as the Butter Market. It opened its doors as a museum in 1849, and is home to a fascinating showcase of everything from the pioneer of the sea rescue rocket line – Henry Trengrouse, cider making apparatus and shop items from the original town blacksmith. There is a stunning gallery of clothing through the ages and a quaint little gift shop too.

-The Poldark Mine and Heritage Complex used to be the very beating heart of Cornish industry in its heyday in the 18th century and this old tin mine is considered to be one of the most important historic sites in Cornwall. Local craftsman and workshops with wood workers, pottery artists and candle making have made the mine their arty hotspot and visitors can even go on a night time ghost tour of the old mine workings by candlelight.

-The Cornish Seal Sanctuary is the only animal sanctuary and rehabilitation centre of its kind in Cornwall and is hugely popular with all age of visitor in Helston holiday cottages. With plenty of playful residents like otters and penguins, rock pools and other animals the kids will love, there are many exciting tales of brave rescue that some of the permanent residents like the sea lion have been through. Chill out at the café or shop at the guest shop at the impressive 40 acre conservation centre.

-The Carminowe Valley Gardens is a vast natural woodland of holly, ash and oak trees, overlooking a sparkling pond that opens out into many hidden sanctuaries within the garden. For any visitor that appreciates the beauty of a stunning garden, then this is a must see for you. Enjoy homemade teas under the leafy peace of the trees and you can even take your dog as long as it is on a lead.

The only very small downside was a lack of hot water in the shower - no doubt down to user error. The best bit? The wood burner in the bedroom. Lovely.
