About the property

Riverside, a two bed apartment at Helford Passage, right on river front.

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. Back inside to the open-plan living area, with its new kitchen equipped with combination microwave oven, dishwasher, washing machine dryer and fridge freezer. From the living area, even it's a chilly day, with the patio doors you can still enjoy the wonderful view of the Helford river. Both are decorated in fresh white which makes the space feel light and airy.

The master bedroom has a double-size bed with hand basin, the second bedroom has twin beds. There is a family shower room with a toilet. As an added extra, we are now supplying each guest with one bath and one hand towel, both free of charge.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.

For bookings of one week or more, we'll have a welcome pack ready for your arrival - a bottle of locally made Helford Creek fruit juice, Cornish filter coffee, Smugglers tea, Cornish biscuits, a few sugar sachets and a pint of milk. We require a refundable £100 deposit against damages

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.

Riverside is currently on the market as a holiday buy-to-let. We will do our very best to ensure that viewings occur on changeover days, thus causing minimum disruption to our guests. However, it may be necessary, on occasion, to arrange an escorted viewing at a reasonable time during the week of your stay.

The property has recently been renovated and all the fittings etc are good quality. However there is a certain starkness which would be improved by the provision of some soft furnishings such as side tables, lamps, cushions and curtains. Even with dimmer switches the lighting is very harsh. The cabinet in the shower room is badly sited directly above the handbasin and there is no shaver/toothbrush socket ( nor in the bedroom ).

Owner's Response: Hello Mike and Pat, As always, we enjoyed seeing you again this year, now with two extra little grand-daughters to add to the fun! As you said, the property was recently refurbished and maybe needs a few finishing touches. I know the owners were after a sleek, contemporary design which they have certainly achieved! We look forward to seeing you all again next year, Best wishes, Sara

A great place to stay near the mouth of the Helford River through Holiday Cornwall.

L2 has remarkable views over the River and a few metres from the sandy cove. Comfortable, clean and convenient. Thank you Holiday Cornwall.

Great but tired.

  • 4 of 5

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.
