We visited Godolphin on a grey day in November. It's a way off the beaten track near Helston, but it's well worth the visit. The house wasn't open on the day of our visit, but there are still plenty of interesting buildings to wander through,...More

I stayed here with my family over Christmas, and it was fantastic! Lovely and stunning grounds. The only down fall was that we had to drive to do any fun and enjoyable walks... Other than that, we very much enjoyed our stay here.

A beautiful old house has been destroyed by modernisation. The house is used as a holiday let and subsequently has been updated with modern bathrooms and kitchen. Not at all what I expected. The best part about the place is the extensive grounds.

Only popped in for a cuppa but found a little gem. Very interesting history also used in Poldark. Very informative and actively being restored.
