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.

It is dog friendly and our dogs certainly enjoyed the beaches and lovely National Trust estates such as Tresillick. The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

The kitchen was very well-equipped. Its such a change to stay somewhere with super comfortable king sized beds. Even the 14 year old in our party put away his iPad and went for long country and coastal path walks. The views are a combination of beach, the harbour and way out to the distant horizon. Can not wait to go back.
