The Location
The Helford River is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt rivers in Cornwall, sitting within an area of outstanding natural beauty with its deep sheltered valleys, wooded and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the south Cornwall coast.

The Helford was renowned as a haven for pirates and has inspired many writers, specifically Daphne du Maurier and her Frenchman’s Creek novel.

Today, the Helford River continues to offer safe swimming, sailing and watersports facilities and a second natural harbour from which to explore the coast, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust. As well as having fine coastal walks and creek paths, the area also has a climate suitable to many sub-tropical plants as the nearby gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah Gardens show.

The village of Mawnan Smith enjoys village shops, doctors’ surgery, restaurant, hairdressers, the Red Lion Inn and 2 Churches. There is a more extensive range of shopping and commercial facilities at Falmouth and Truro with a direct rail link to London Paddington from Truro.

For the sports enthusiast there are numerous local football and cricket teams in the surrounding villages, five golf courses within 20 miles, the nearest being Budock Vean. Water sports such as kayaking and paddleboarding are available on the waterfront at Helford Passage. The sailing facilities of the area are second to none: the Helford River, Falmouth Bay and the River Fal (Carrick Roads) offer some of the finest day sailing waters in the UK with excellent yachting facilities including the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club and three marinas.
