FLORA DAY HELSTON

8th May 2014 - book early for Flora Day 2014 - Week still available

_________________________________________________________________

The Studio is ideal for a couple or small family who wish for peace and quiet, off the beaten track and away from it all. There is plenty of outside space so in the summer months sharing is not usually any problem.

The studio sleeps a couple, 4 friends sharing or a family of 4. But can sleep an extra baby in a cot or an extra child on a futon and sleeping bag (supplied on request) if you do not mind being a bit cramped – this does not usually matter as most families find lots to do so are only back to sleep. Any number over 4 however will cost an extra £40 per week.

The accommodation consists of a large studio room, with a King size bed for couples of for the parents if you come with children. There is a double sofabed that folds out for two more to sleep– friends sharing can argue about who has the king size bed! The shower room has a toilet, wash-hand basin and shower cubicle. Therefore the open plan lounge/sleeping area is furnished with a double sofabed, colour television, video cassette recorder and DVD player, stereo cd player, and a range of videos and paperbacks. The Kitchenette has a fridge/freezer, small electric cooker, microwave, jug kettle, microwave and toaster.

The flat has its own front door, own full central heating and water heating. The windows overlook the magnificent view. It is equipped with crockery and cutlery for 5, duvet covers, bed linen and towels are all supplied.

For your convenience, there is an iron & ironing board, as well as a vacuum cleaner. There is no telephone in the studio, but most mobile phones get a good reception.

Please book well in advance , special rates apply.

We are 4 miles from Helston and usually everything for miles around is booked well in advance for this week.

Flora day is a unique Cornish festival/celebration said to have its roots in pagan festivals for welcoming in the spring and new life see: http://www.users.zetnet.co.uk/cornwall/flora.html; http://www.helstonfloraday.org.uk/

We would offer the share of my pony's field for anyone who wanted to bring their horse to ride around here. This would of course be extra, ask for details.

Further details outdoors

Porkellis while an un-spoilt farming village has much of interest within easy distance. It is situated in the world heritage area of mining, http://www.worldheritagecornwall.com/mines/porkellis-moor.htm, There is a local pub called the Star Inn which is children and people friendly and is a free house so serves good real ale, http://www.thingstodoincornwall.co.uk/far_west/pubs_2.html

Porkellis is not on the coast but is ideally situated for exploring the lovely Peninsular of the Lizard and all the West Cornwall beaches and visiting the many tourist attractions of Cornwall. Porthleven harbour is our nearest fishing port. It is a very big harbour as it was originally a harbour where local tin was shipped to all parts of the world. Now it is a lovely fishing harbour with lovely picturesque pubs such as the Ship Inn that also does wonderful family meals, many acclaimed restaurants and lovely views ( I can supply pictures of Porthleven via email if requested) Poldark Mine, http://www.poldark-mine.co.uk/ is just down the road within walking distance if you like walking. Flambards Theme Park http://www.flambards.co.uk/ is only a 10 minute car drive away.

Other attractions nearby include the National Maritime Museum – in Falmouth about 5 miles, National Seal Sanctuary and Goonhilly Earth Station – both on the Lizard see map. Further a field are the Eden Project, Lands End, Newquay Zoo, Tintagel Castle, Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre, Geevor Tin Mine, Blue Reef Aquarium and St. Michael's Mount to name but a few.

Further details

Travel and getting around.

To decrease your carbon footprint it is possible to holiday here without a car. You would get a train to Redruth and bus or taxi to Porkellis

You are welcome to stay around the smallholding and village and if you are fit it is possible to get around locally by bike, which can be rented locally.

This may be a welcome change for those who live in the town, but bear in mind while there is a pub within walking distance there is no where within 5 miles to buy food supplies or for other entertainment. Therefore if you wish to go further afield without difficulty, it is advisable for guests to have transport. There is a local bus service but it does not go to all routes and stops early evening there are many wonderful local places of interest to visit, by car, including the many local beaches. If you use a car the most carbon friendly option would be to come by train and hire one down here. At the very least, even bringing or hiring a car you have avoided flying and you will be in a wonderful rural UK location

New for 2009, eco holidays in a Mongolian Yurt. For information and pre bookings please contact us.

"Ideal retreat for city dwellers"

This is probably the most pleasant place we've ever rented. It's situated in a rural area with views across the hills to the sea. The night sky is amazing. The cottage itself is lovely and the owners have evidently put a great deal of thought into ensuring their guests enjoy their visit. Wonderful bed, masses of hot water, great shower, really effective heating (we went as the weather turned) and just great value for money. The photos don't do the place justice actually; it's recently been decorated and the front of the house has comfortable seating and lots of flowers. I would recommend the cottage highly and would also note that I wish the yurt with it's own field had been available when our children were small. This place is the best value for money I've come across and we plan to come back. I understand that most bookings are repeat visitors, which says it all really. If you don't like dogs, there are plenty of alternative cottages to choose from. Our dachshund had a marvellous time getting to know the owners' dogs and has returned to London far more sociable and less timid. Excellent all round!

"Lovely time in a picturesque and peaceful area."

We stayed at the Studio for the first time this year and it comes highly recommended. The room is compact and very comfortable with all amenities required. There were four of us - two adults and two younger children and the room was great. Inside the Studio is a great place to be if the weather is a bit wet or windy. Outside, the Studio has great views over the countryside and is in a quiet and peaceful area. Everything is easy to get to from Porkellis - all the major towns and attractions are within an hours drive. Veritee and Barry are great hosts - with good advice about the area and always available when you need anything. All in all it was a great week away and we will definitely be visiting again.

"A little piece of heaven!"

Stayed here for a week. Luckily we had the only nice week so far of the summer! It's so beautiful and peaceful - couldn't hear a thing other than the birds when we sat on the patio. It is quite isolated but that was just what we wanted. The Studio had every home comfort, couldn't thing of a single thing that was missing. It's in an ideal position for visiting both coasts - all within an hour's driving. Veritee and Barry are the ideal hosts - around if you need anything but discreet when you don't. Hope to visit this haven again soon. Lynn and Ron Gabriel, Birmingham

"Peaceful home from home"

We have just got home from another wonderful week staying in The Studio. This was our 4th year there (and we've booked again for next year already). On arrival we were delighted to find The Studio as clean and comfortable as ever but also having had a face lift since last year with new paintwork etc. It's a lovely place to stay with all the essentials you could need, including ready made bed, towels plus tea/coffee/milk and other cooking essentials all there for your arrival. On sunny days the outside area is wonderful with far reaching views and on colder/wet days The Studio quickly becomes warm and cosy. Veritee and Barry, the owners, are extremely friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend this gorgeous little place to anyone who just wants a "get away from it all" holiday in Cornwall.

"5 days total relaxation in a peaceful well equipped environment"

on arrival i found a lovely clean airy studio, a large pretty made up bed. everything you could want in the kitchen area, local information etc. outside the studio is a patio and parking area with wonderful views across the open countryside and farmland. there is even a fresh coffee maker provided. next time i go i would like to stay in the studio for one week, and maybe spend a second week in the mongolian yurt which is situated through a large gate in a very private field location, owned by the same people, with its own seperate shower and toilet facilities, well equipped kitchen. barbecue and outside fire place.

"Lovely little hideaway"

This is a lovely little studio apartment. Everything that I could possibly want was provided. No rushing down to the supermarket for essentials like cooking oil,salt and pepper,spices,cleaning products,tea,coffee,milk and sugar no all was provided. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and the view gorgeous. Tv,dvd and cd player all provided. Veritee left me eggs and local meats which were beautiful. I was looking for some solitude and I saw no one but I knew that Veritee and her husband were just around the corner if I needed them. The studio was clean and warm and everything I could have wanted . I had a lovely few days and would recommend it.
