The location
The Helford River is one of the most picturesque and unspoilt areas in Cornwall, sitting within an AONB with its deep sheltered valleys, wooded and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the south Cornish coast.

The area offers safe swimming, sailing and watersports within a timeless natural harbour in which to explore, relax and recharge, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust. As well as having fine coastal walks and creek paths, the area also enjoys a climate suited to many sub-tropical varieties as the nearby gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens display so beautifully.

The village of Mawnan Smith provides village shops, doctors’ surgery, restaurant, hairdressers, the Red Lion Inn (serving good food), and two churches. There is a wide and eclectic range of shopping, bars and restaurants at nearby Falmouth, one of the UK’s most popular, thriving and creative seaside towns.

For the sports enthusiast there are local football and cricket teams in the surrounding villages, and five golf courses within 20 miles, the nearest being within a short walk of the property, accessed from the Budock Vean Hotel. Watersports such as wind surfing, water skiing and kayaking are available on the waterfront at Helford Passage where the Ferryboat Inn is positioned above the beach. There is also a seasonal passenger ferry across the river to The Shipwrights, a wonderfully positioned pub on the south bank of the Helford.
