The Location
Nansloe Manor occupies a tucked away and discrete location on the edge of Helston and is within a few miles of some of southwest Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches and coastal destinations including Porthleven, Praa Sands, Poldhu, Gunwalloe, Kynance Cove, Mount’s Bay, The Helford and Carbis Bay / St. Ives. Its close proximity to RNAS Culdrose allows for easy access for private jets and helicopters.

This area of Cornwall is steeped in history and natural beauty. To the south, The Lizard Peninsula is defined by its small fishing villages, open countryside and the timeless Helford, one of Cornwall’s best sailing rivers. To the west, Mount’s Bay is dominated by St Michael’s Mount before leading around Penzance to the fishing port of Newlyn and pretty Mousehole. Beyond, the far west juts defiantly into the Atlantic and this area of Cornwall has for generations attracted and inspired many celebrated artists and writers.

Penzance, 13 miles away, provides a mainline railway line to London Paddington and a ferry service to the stunningly beautiful Isles of Scilly. Cornwall Airport (near Mawgan Porth) is about 37 miles away and provides regular flights to London and many other UK and European destinations.
