|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Down some steps, open the door and you'll see an amazing view of the Helford River. You're above the Ferryboat Inn, and once you're on the tiled balcony you can pull up a sun lounger or sit at the table with a glass of something cold, and begin to unwind. We pop up an awning for the summer months so if you like it warm but shady, this is the choice for you.Back inside to the open-plan living area and you'll find a green leather sofa with two matching, reclining chairs and footstools. Could you be more relaxed? The whole apartment is decorated in warm Magnolia which reflects the light and makes the space feel cosy. The kitchenette is compact but surprisingly well-equipped - there is even a secret cupboard which houses the washing machine and separate tumble drier!
The master bedroom has a double-size bed, and the second bedroom a set of bunk beds. Both rooms have built-in wardrobes and vanity units. The family bathroom has a large walk-in shower cubicle with an electric power shower - ideal for those early morning wake-up calls. There's also a heated towel rail for keeping your towels warm and dry.
We'll have a welcome hamper of Smugglers tea, Taylors coffee, milk, Cornish biscuits and a bottle of wine ready for your arrival. You'll have shared use of the heated, outdoor swimming pool with loungers, tables and parasols poolside, plus there is one designated space in the residents' car park.
We require a refundable £100 deposit against damages on Riverview.Please note: there is a small wall and then railings on the balcony edge, therefore we don't recommend this property for anyone with toddlers unless they are under strict adult supervision at all times.
L2 has remarkable views over the River and a few metres from the sandy cove. Comfortable, clean and convenient. Thank you Holiday Cornwall.
As the owners admitted, property very tired and overdue for makeover. We had big problem with flooding through the bedroom window which we did our very best through the night to control but have to say that the weather was extreme at the time. Nevertheless we love the place and hope prices won't make it unattainable post makeover
Helford Passage is about a mile from the village of Mawnan Smith. It's on the river - the Helford, of course, with a lovely sandy beach, and direct access onto the coastal path. We've got the Ferryboat Inn on site, which specialises in local seafood dishes and exquisite hot chocolates with Baileys Cream. It hosts regular music nights, quizzes and other events during the year, including the Helford Passage Regatta in early August.
You could hire a rowing boat or kayak for the day at the Helford Passage kiosk, or book some paddle boarding lessons. If, like me, you're a lazy sun-worshipper, then stretch out on the beach with the latest blockbuster and a locally made Roskilly's Chocolate Brownie and Marshmallow ice cream, or a bag of warm, buttery popcorn. Browse through Sarah's Shop @ the Beach, for locally made jewellery, quirky gifts, and the children's all-essential, beach-side bucket and spades.
We've got an outdoor, heated swimming pool on site too, with poolside loungers, chairs and parasols. It's in a secure area behind a coded gate, so it's safe for the little ones.
From the kiosk, you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, meander up the leafy path to the Shipwrights Arms and enjoy a homemade pasty and a glass of cold, Cornish cider. If you fancy something a little more energetic, you could wander along the river shore and explore Daphne Du Maurier's Frenchman's Creek. The ferry runs into the evening during the evening so there's no rush back – take your time, relax and enjoy.
Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are just a few minutes away, and stunning at any time of the year. Falmouth is our nearest town, where you'll find the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, pubs and restaurants.
We've got fishing trips nearby, golf, cycling, horse-riding, seaside fish and chips, coastal walks, art galleries and stunning beaches. A perfect base for family breaks.
