"We absolutely love Helensdale, it cannot be faulted!"

Helensdale is one of the best self catering properties we have found (and we've stayed in quite a few!). As a family we have been 6 times now and our 7th is booked for this summer! Our children (aged 12 and 16) absolutely love it and would now choose it over other holidays. The property itself is faultless. It is spotlessly clean and has everything you would need in the kitchen. The space in the building means that you are not on top of each other, and the views are spectacular.
It is off the beaten track, and you do need a car to get to the nearest shop, but that is part of the attraction for us. There are beautiful beaches a short drive away, and great walks on the doorstep. The wildlife is in abundance and the scenery is stunning. You might have gathered that we love this place!
