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...

I'm afraid to say I will second what other reviews have said and state that this cottage is so much better than the pictures convey- its characterful, quaint and had everything we needed as a family of four. The garden is a bonus as is the country pub across the road - what a pleasure to return to this place...

Management response:

Thank you for your most kind and helpful comments about your recent holiday at Palm Cottage. I agree with you and other visitors that the images of the interior of the cottage are far less impressive than the reality but indeed I consider one could say the same about St Michael's Mount, which must be one of the most photographed...

This is such a lovely homely cottage. The photos do not do it justice. The cottage was extremely clean with fresh bed linen on. On arrival, there was welcome tea and coffee with biscuits with kettle full and boiled. Heaters on and wood and coal for the fire. From the first day, it really felt like we had walked into...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind comments about your recent week at Palm Cottage. Like all our guests during the chillier months of the year, I'm pleased that you found yourselves cosy and comfortable largely due to the open fire, a most popular feature even during cool summer evenings!

We spent a week at Palm Cottage over New Year with our three young children: 7,5 and 4 year olds. Being familiar with the area we knew what to expect. The cottage however was beautiful and became a wonderful base and "home" for our stay. The children loved the Beatrix Potter bedroom and we were able to explore the wonderful...

We can't guarantee the weather in Cornwall, but we do promise a happy holiday in our most comfortable home with a welcome tray on your arrival.

From the imposing solid front door to the tiled floor vestibule you enter the beamed, open-plan, carpeted living area with its original cob walls. This room invites relaxation with its leather sofa, cosy chairs,open fireplace, window seats, several table lamps, board games, and flat screen TV.

About the neighborhood
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.
