The historic market town of Helston stands at the gateway of the Lizard Peninsula which is Britain's most southerly point, which gives access to some of the most dramatic coastal scenery and beaches the UK has to offer. The coastal and inland villages are most picturesque which add to the overall charm of this delightful and highly regarded peninsula. Porthleven is approximately 2 miles away which offers fabulous restaurants, pubs and an historic harbourside. Helston has an eclectic array of individual shops, well regarded schools (both junior and senior) sports centre, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies and a cinema. The area boasts some outstanding walks and scenery nearby, eg Helston's boating lake through the National Trust land towards the outstanding Loe Pool and Loe Bar with the sea nearby.


From Meneage Road, enter the round about, and travel straight across, passing the Spar shop on the left, and into Meneage Street, where the cottage can be found on the right hand side next to the Dry Cleaners.
