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.


The team at Porthleven is exceptionally friendly, efficient and helpful. We felt welcome as soon as we entered their office. We're very grateful to them for making our stay in Helford so memorable. Mr Claude Douguet - 18th September 2018
It's been a few years since we stayed in Helford, and there were great improvements: the Shipwright's Arms, the Village Store, Holy Mackerel Café. The cottage was lovely and worked well for three adults. Ms Eileen Gardiner - 25th June 2018
Lovely property, very cosy and comfortable and well equipped. A great base for walking. Great to have central heating and a log burner as it snowed on our first day! Would highly recommend the property. Helford is a lovely village. Pub is very close to property and village shop sticks most things, but if not they are happy to order for you. The sailing club does excellent food.Mrs Debbie Leafe - 26th March 2018
