3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
St Keverne, Helston, Cornwall, England
Palm Cottage has always been a second home for the owners, so although the house is ready for your arrival and immaculately clean it has a warmth to it, from the carefully chosen interiors to the garage packed with beach toys for the children.

There is a tastefully furnished open-plan living room with an ample-sized dining table at one end and a cosy seating area with an open log fire at the other.

The kitchen is clean and modern with every piece of equipment, whether you're enjoying a diet of pasties or lobster during your stay.

The bathroom is downstairs, with a bath and shower over.

Upstairs are three good sized bedrooms; a double and two twins.

What we are told repeatedly about the cottage is that it is a perfect base for exploring the Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall's secret treasure. The coastal footpath, an , beaches and...

My cousin rented this place for a week and I must say we had a wonderful time. It is well-equipped and very neat, the little touches add a special feel to it like you're at home. From the decors, the pictures on the wall even the duvet covers! It is near the Lizard peninsula, but we also managed to visit...

Had another fantastic stay at Palm Cottage this August. My husband, not normally someone who favours returning to places, described walking back into Palm Cottage, as like coming back home. I cannot say enough about how well equipped, how beautifully decorated (with so much local art work and pottery) or how well situated this place is. The Prince of Wales...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is situated in a charming village with a pub over the road, serving local ales and excellent food at a reasonable price.

A popular three miles circular walk is from Kestle Barton, brown signposted from the village, down Frenchman's Creek to Helford and return through the wood.

A foot-ferry from Helford runs across the river to Helford Passage.

GUNWALLOE CHURCH COVE and KYNANCE COVE are the nearest beaches.

HELSTON is a quaint old town famous for its annual Floral Dance and The Blue Anchor, one of the oldest pubs in England.

POTHLEVEN has many shops and restaurants, an attractive Victorian terrace of houses and a working harbour.

The Seal Sanctuary at GWEEK is one of only two in the UK and is certainly worth a visit.
