MORE LIKE HEAVENSTON!
Helston isn’t hell. It’s heavenly. As a town, it doesn’t boast the views of, say, St Ives so it’s not heavenly in that way. It’s heavenly because if you’re visiting the lower reaches of Cornwall, it’s perfectly positioned as a base to explore this gorgeous region, with fine beaches just three miles away and fine countryside all around. But that doesn’t mean you have to stay in Helston and then get out each day. This historic market town has plenty to see, eat, do and enjoy all by itself. A theme park on its doorstep, a farmers’ market on the first Saturday of every month, historic gardens, great restaurants, animals to meet, bijou shops and a warm community await. And then, once you’re done with the local amenities, head out to the nearby towns, beaches, attractions and countryside. Now that’s heavenly.
