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.


Jacky was lovely to deal with, and was more than happy to help with any questions about the area. A really interesting old property, tastefully modernised to make comfortable.Tim Hale - 2nd November 2018
Amazing setting on a dairy farm with lovely green views from each window. Birdsong and mooing prevalent. Kids loved the playground and the friendly horse. Owners were very welcoming and baked a crumble with clotted cream which they supply. Overall a relaxing enjoyable stay. Helford village is highly recommended as they have a pub overlooking the river.Mr Kieran Jackson-Taylor - 7th June 2018
