The coastal and inland villages are most picturesque which add to the overall charm of this delightful and highly regarded peninsula. Helston has an eclectic array of individual shops, well regarded schools (both junior and senior) sports centre, doctor's surgeries, pharmacies and a cinema. The area boasts some outstanding walks and scenery nearby, eg Helston's boating lake through the National Trust land towards the outstanding Loe Pool and Loe Bar with the sea nearby.
