About Helston Lodge

Perching above the Loe, this former gate lodge is the perfect lakeside retreat.

Helston Lodge is located right on the water’s edge at the head of Loe Pool, Cornwall’s largest natural lake. The former gate lodge commands outstanding view over the Loe and its wooded banks. With its tastefully furnished interior, the Lodge makes a perfect lakeside retreat for up to four people.

If you’re a keen birdwatcher, you’re in for a treat, with lots of rare species in the area. Otherwise, discover the stunning scenery on foot along one of the many footpaths and bridleways nearby.

Further afield, explore the estate at Godolphin, with its historic house and garden. The money raised from your stay at Helston Lodge helps us to maintain this beautiful estate for years to come.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
