Information on Cottage Holidays in Helston

Helston is a market town on the Lizard Peninsula in the West Country.  Everyone has heard the song ‘floral dance’ but do not necessarily associate it with Flora day in Helston which is celebrated on the nearest Saturday to the 8th of May each year. Visitors flock to the town to watch or participate in the mimes and medieval re-enactments, including the slaying of the dragon by St. George,  with much dancing in the streets  lead by the Helston Band.

The high street is dominated by large granite buildings which house shops, banks , pubs and hotels such as the Angel which is a gathering place for snooker players.  There are several restaurants, including a wine bar and Indian in the centre of town. There is some free parking plus a small ‘pay and display’ car park. For any holidaymakers wishing to stock up on groceries or sandwiches and snacks for their holiday, there is a 24 hour Sainsbury supermarket on the south side of Helston and 24 hour Tesco on the north side.

The Flambards Village theme park is on the southern side of Helston, on the A394. This is  a popular park for both its rides and Victorian village, offering something for all ages. 

A small but pleasant park with a boating lake and boats to hire is also on the south of Helston, on the road leading to the pretty coastal village of Porthleven and the Lizard.

Further south, just outside Helston is the enormous site of a Royal Naval station, Cudrose which hosts an Air Day when the general public are invited to come and see some of the work and activities of a Royal Naval air station.

Helston is a very good place to rent a holiday cottage or self-catering apartment because of the great number of places to visit within a ten mile radius. The Lizard, the most southerly point of the UK, is highly recommended for its flora and geology.  The beaches of southern Cornwall are within a short drive and the facilities of Helston, its swimming pool, museum,  shops and petrol stations are all conveniently on the doorstep.
