Hassle-free Walking Holidays in West Cornwall


We have some short break walking holidays available for May and June, including last minute holidays for May. Ask us about availability.


Personalised Walking Holidays in West Cornwall

Unpack and settle in for the duration of your holiday. Enjoy a welcome drink while we discuss with you, and then design, your ideal holiday. We cover the south west coast path, from Perranporth to Porthleven. Your walk is self-guided - we will get you to the path but the rest is up to you! 

Bed and Breakfast

Super rooms, private bathrooms and a good, healthy breakfast of cereals, eggs and toast served in our lovely Orangery. 

Ideal Location

We are located just a mile from the beach at Perranuthnoe and a couple of miles from the wonderful St Michael's Mount, in the historic mining village of Goldsithney - home of the famous Charter Fair. Our central location is within easy driving distance of the many attractions and coastal walks of West Cornwall and the Lizard.

About us

Helen and John

We are both experienced walkers and have enjoyed many walking holidays: hiking in the USA and Switzerland, tramping in New Zealand, trekking in Malaysia, Borneo and Sri Lanka and walking (a lot of) the South West Coast Path. We kept coming back to Cornwall, so eventually we decided to stay! And the walking here is second to none.

John is the South West Coast Path Association local representative for Pendeen Watch to Sennen Cove.

Love Cornwall, Love Food

No active holiday is complete for us without a hearty culinary reward at the end of the day. If you are like-minded then West Cornwall won't disappoint. Breweries, seafood, celebrity and celebrated chefs - you won't have to go far to find excellent food in award winning pubs and restaurants. 

and Oscar

 We live with Oscar, our miniature dachshund. He loves meeting new people, but unfortunately he is not used to sharing his house with other dogs or small children (under the age of 12).  

What our guests say

"What a delightful place to stay. On a side lane off the main road through the sleepy village of Goldsithney. Its a gorgeous old house, and the hosts are fabulous. Very quickly making you feel at home. I stayed in the en-suite room, and I'd highly recommend it with a beautiful view of their garden. Can't say enough about how happy I was to stay at this place." Siobhan, USA

"Great hosts, beautiful home, lovely room, brilliant bathroom and a wonderful breakfast couldn't ask for more!" Alan, Australia

"We stayed for 2 nights over the weekend and loved every minute of it. The place is beautiful and immaculate. The breakfast was fantastic. We felt so welcome, I would definitely stay again." Henry and Gabby, UK

"John's house is simply the best! My wife and I are walking the Coast Path from Falmouth to St. Ives and this was the best place we stayed over the 10+ days, by far. Homemade granola, yogurt and preserves; bathrobes; a bathtub big enough for two; and Cornwall's most magically soft mattress. It was so nice, we stayed there twice. Also, if you stop there on a Wednesday, get the pizza from a van." Nathan and Kristen, USA

"We had a really lovely stay at John and Helen's. They were very welcoming from the start and we were able to sit with them on arrival in their beautiful garden, enjoying the view and playing with Oscar the dog. The room and bathroom were immaculately clean and even included bathrobes and slippers which made it extra special! Breakfast was delicious with so much choice - we particularly loved the homemade granola! They were such hospitable hosts; we really felt at home from the moment we arrived and thoroughly enjoyed the entirety of our stay. Would definitely recommend staying at John and Helen's if you're ever down in this part of Cornwall!" Rachel and George, UK

"For our first time in Cornwall we stayed at the beautiful Lamorna House with John, Helen and Oscar. What a special treat! John and Helen are among the nicest people we have met! Their hospitality had us feel totally at home in no time! The room and bathroom are perfect and super clean. We could feel the love and care that was put in every detail in the house. Breakfast was great!!! Oscar is the cutest Dachshund we know! We could go on and on with praising our stay! But just go there and find out yourself! We'll be back!" Roy and Marion, Netherlands
