Located in the pretty village of Helford in South Cornwall, Dowr Penty is a beautiful stone cottage with an abundance of character. From its whitewashed exterior the property presents itself as picture perfect cottage, and the inside continues to live up to this façade with the exposed beams, stone walls and wood burning stove. The bubbling creek at the bottom of the garden completes the charm of this cottage, and guests continue to return to the property year on year to seek this idyllic Cornish retreat. Situated on the coastal path, this pet friendly property is ideal for walking enthusiasts, with stunning views of the Helford River just moments away.
The village of Helford, situated on the south bank of the Helford River, is a quiet Cornish village with an ancient thatched pub called The Shipwrights Arms and a well-equipped village store providing you with everything that you need during your stay. The Helford River is popular for many water sports, including kayaking, SUPing, snorkelling, as well as providing plenty of boat tours for those looking for a more relaxing day on the water.

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.
