Falmouth the premier resort of West. Cornwall has four main beaches and is brimming with boats, watersports, high street shops. Together the futuristic Ships and Castles swimming pool and Pendennis Castle command breathtaking views over this large and busy commercial port.

Famous for its springtime Flora Dance, Helston nestles in a wooded valley north of the Lizard Peninsula. Shops, pubs, cobbled alley-ways and the beautiful Coronation Boating Lake help you relax into your holiday.



On the outskirts of Helston is the famous theme park of FLAMBARDS boasting 'Best day of the week' with spectacular award winning indoor Victorian village and 'Britain in the Blitz' exhibitions. There is also the POLDARK MINE at Wendron an all weather attraction tin mine with guided tours, museum, craft shop, restaurant etc.

At Helston GOLF & LEISURE spend an afternoon sharpening your handicap. Within 3-4 miles is the NATIONAL SEAL SANCTUARY at Gweek which is situated on the famous Helford River which was immortalised by Daphne du Maurier's FRENCHMAN'S CREEK.

Porthkerris Divers are a Professional PADI 5* Dive Centre located on the beautiful Lizard Peninsula. They offer the whole range of PADI Scuba Diving Courses, from beginner to Instructor. You can also have a go at diving with a "Try Dive" under the expert guidance of an Instructor.

A few minutes drive from Helston is the well known fishing village of Porthleven with quayside pubs and cafes, shops and restaurants. First week in May is the Flora Day celebration in Helston with the well known 'Floral Dances' where the whole town is dressed up for processions of dancers through the town alleyways and even shops!

Enthusiasts for water skiing, wind sailing can 'wet' their appetite at Stithians Lake very close to Tanglewood Cottage. Another lake that offers lovely walks is Loe Bar which is just to the south of Helston and the largest freshwater lake in Cornwall separated from the sea only by a long sand bar.

The Lizard Peninsula is just through Helston and designated as an area of outstanding beauty. There is also Goonhilly Earth Station (B.T. communications complex), National Trust walks, Mullion and Coverack harbours plus many secret sandy coves for swimming.

"Excellent, beautiful Cottage, wish we had stayed longer!!"

We stayed at Tanglewood with my elderly parents in May. However, this excellent 4 bedroom cottage is suitable for families of all ages. Spotlessly clean with everything you need for a relaxing self-catering holiday. Peaceful location yet in easy reach of many attractions and wonderful Cornwall beaches.. Private car parking space with private safe garden perfect for young families and relaxing with a beer or two. We had planned to dine out in the evenings as there are pubs/restaurants within easy reach by car, however, the kitchen at Tanglewood is fantastic and it was a joy to cook and relax during the evenings. Personal touches, fluffy towels, lovely bed linen all made this holiday perfect. The owners are so helpful, there if you require anything and provide information on local area if needed. We shall definitely be returning to Tanglewood in the very near future

Thank you for your comments, we are really happy to help & delighted you enjoyed your stay at Tanglewood Cottage.
