We say

Nicely situated midway between Penzance and the Lizard, just outside Helston, Nantrisack Farmhouse is a beautiful 18th-century stone cottage. Run by the affable owner Tom Martin, as part of his Granary Barn campsite and backpackers next door, the B&B has just three rooms – two doubles, one twin – and offers very comfortable accommodation for just £25–£30 per person per night if you stay more than 1 night, including breakfast, and sharing the one bathroom. The rooms are simply but very nicely furnished and like the adjacent campsite there's a great feel about the place, encouraging shared breakfasts and the sharing of adventures with other guests, not to mention Tom and his faithful border collie. Tom is always on hand to advise on things to do nearby, and it's a great spot to end up in for sure. Helston is Cornwall in microcosm,  a picture-postcard patchwork of pasty shops, ancient pubs (like the 15th century Blue Anchor Inn), and charming old miners' cottages that once housed some 1000 workers from the local tin mine. You could could spend hours ambling its steep serpentine streets or just head down to the harbour at nearby Porthleven. And then it's back to the B&B, which is as welcoming a bolthole as you could find.
