Local Area

Helford is an idyllic little village set on the Helford River, just south of Falmouth. The area is blessed with stunning scenery – beautiful countryside, glorious walks following the meandering river and a plethora of quiet little coves and bays along the coast.

The whole region is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a number of picturesque villages and hamlets dotted throughout the landscape. Whether you stay in Helford village, Maenporth, Gweek, Coverack, Manaccan, Flushing or Porthallow, each has its own charm and character, with thatched and white-washed cottages a real feature. Why not explore all of them, sampling the quintessentially English village pubs along the way!

Helford is situated on the east coast of the Lizard Peninsula, with Lizard Point a must-see attraction. Other great days out in the area include the Seal Sanctuary, the sub-tropical paradise of Trebah Gardens and firm family favourite, Flambards. The nearby towns of Porthleven and Helston offer restaurants, supermarkets and pubs and, of course, the harbour town of Falmouth is just up the coast, providing for all your shopping needs, excursions and more.


Lovely lovely cottage equipped with everything you could possibly need. Excellent views. Very clean beach and beautiful clear sea. The balcony is brilliant, for breakfast, sunbathing, relaxing, reading, lunch, dinner or just a quick cuppa with a fantastic view of the beach. will definitely go again.Mrs Dawn Kingshott - 9th September 2018

What better place to spend your 65th birthday. Glorious few days, exceptionally hot for September and the sea lovely and warm. The roof terrace is a fantastic addition. Great good value lunch at the Ferry Boat, then followed by yummy ice cream at Roskilly's on the way back.John and Fiona
We had a great time here and love the cottage, the beach, the village etc. We really liked The Shipwright's Arms at Helford, and Coverack was excellent for swimming and water sports. We parked within 20m of Lizard Point, how is that possible? Thanks.Frank, Emma, Jacob and Florence
