We have stayed in other Cornish Holiday Cottages before, this one proved as excellent. Perfectly placed within a short walk of Swanpool beach, where we hired kayaks, and ate yummy lunches. From the beach, we could hop on the local bus into Falmouth which took ten minutes, or a ten-minute walk along the cliff. Truly a special family holiday thank you.

Just recently stayed in Durgan (Durgan Burgan according to my 3 year old) and it remains the most wonderful place in the world, 20 years on from when I was last there. Thank you!


Emma, Staying at Coastguards

It's just a short walk to visit the castle, a sandy beach, rock pools, maritime museum, shops & restaurants.

Jane, Staying at Victoria Quay 6

Everywhere you go in the area gives you stunning scenery to take you away from your everyday lives.


Jane, Staying at Victoria Quay 6

Everybody looks for something different from a holiday. For me, it's peace and relaxation , which definitely comes from this view over the Fal from Victoria Quay 6.

Our favourite memory, our view from the verandah (and lounge and bedroom) of Gwel-an Heylyn, where we have had our second most amazing holiday and are already booked for next Summer. Such a wonderful ‘escape’ in the most beautiful holiday home.

Mark and Deb Sanderson

Rachel, Staying at Coastguards

Some photos of the wonderful views at different times of the day across the bay from our stay at Coastguards near Pendennis Point, July 2021. From the vibrant colours to the tropical plants, we truly felt as though we were abroad! Inspiring! Thanks, Rachel.


Sue, Staying at Upper Deck

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Upper Deck, the ability to launch a kayak from the jetty below the apartment and paddle up the Helford River was just amazing. I took this photo one calm evening on the opposite side of the creek, looking towards Quay House. We hope to return to this beautiful, peaceful spot. You can sit all day just watching the changing scene of the tidal creek, it is so relaxing. Thank you Cornish Holidays. Sue, John, Francesca and Kate.

Natalie & Family, staying at Victoria Quay 2

We love this property for its proximity to the sea. This ground floor apartment has its very own small balcony with steps directly onto the beach or into the sea - depending on the tide. We have enjoyed the quietness and the views for several years and will continue to do so. The ever-moving scenery is lovely. And all so close to the town. This year we all had a go at paddleboarding with varying success!!! The ease of getting on and off the board at high or low tide is the best. Then up the steps to the cosy indoors and a yummy Cornish pasty. What more could you want from a holiday. We will be back!

Darcy, Staying at Le Coin Perdu
