Pointside is an elegant semi-detached period holiday home that enjoys a fantastic position next to the river in Helford.

The porch leads from the front garden to a comfortable living room with linen sofas and natural wood floor. There is a woodburner and a TV with DVD. The large kitchen/diner is well-equipped and benefits from two separate ovens and a long pine table with views of the river to enjoy as you dine.

A walk-through study area leads to a children’s room/conservatory with a large comfy seating area with a TV and a utility room with a washer/dryer and freezer. French doors open onto a small courtyard with a barbecue, and steps lead to the upper deck with garden furniture and views down the river.

Along the landing there is a family bedroom with 2’6” bunks and a 2’6” single bed, a bathroom with bath and overhead shower, and a sweet and sunny twin room.

The rowing boat can also be left on the owner’s pontoon at the Point which gives you access to the water at all times.

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.


Most beautiful area of Cornwall, we visit every year and always have the best time. Everyone is so friendly and the scenery stunning.Mrs Lauren Seddon - 14th October 2018
