The Hen House

Helston, Cornwall
Bed & Breakfast

A colourful haven with a beautiful wildflower meadow and twinkling fairy lights. A treat for dog walkers and peace seekers


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


A generous, peaceful oasis. Sandy and Gary have oodles of local information on places to visit, eat and walk – with OS maps on loan. Your big ground floor room, in its own barn, has bright fabrics, a king-size bed and stable doors to the courtyard; there are self-catering guests on-site too. Relax in the hot tub in the wildflower meadow, bask on sun loungers, wander by the ponds and watch the ducks’ antics; the central courtyard is fairy-lit at night. Scrumptious locally sourced breakfasts are served in the dining chalet surrounded by birdsong. Tai-chi in the meadow, reiki and reflexology in the Serpentine Sanctuary… bliss.

Sandy and Gary could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was well decorated and comfortable. There was an excellent choice for breakfast. I would highly recommend this venue.
