River View is a beautiful, mid-terrace, former Coastguard's cottage at Helford Passage, just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn and the beach. It's decorated throughout in neutral shades, with splashes of colour in the artwork and soft furnishings.Step through the front door and you'll find yourself in a large open-plan living/kitchen area, linked by a breakfast bar. The kitchen is well-equipped and stylish, with bold blue splash back tiles and chrome accessories. The work tops are made from natural wood, and the flooring throughout is polished oak. You'll find a large, comfy corner suite covered in throws and bright scatter cushion for optimum comfort. There's a log-burning stove in here for the colder months or even chilly evenings. We'll even pop in some logs to get you started. You'll find books, a Sky box and a DVD player tucked away in the cupboard. The view from the lounge is outstanding as you really are only a few steps away from the river.
And if that wasn't enough, there's also a shower room downstairs, fully tiled in warming shades of brown and with a drench shower head for an efficient morning wake-up blast! Across the hallway, you'll see the third bedroom. It has twin beds with attractive throws and matching cushions, plus both beds have reading lamps.
Upstairs for the master bedroom which has a king-size bed directly opposite the window and fantastic views of the river. Imagine laying in bed at night and hearing the gentle lap of the water on the shore... The second bedroom has a double bed. Both rooms have drawer space and wall-hangers for your clothes, giving the cottage a minimalist feel. There's also a refurbished family bathroom up here that has both a bath and an overhead shower. Both bathrooms have heated towel rails to ensure your swimming towels are kept warm and dry. We are now providing one bath and one hand towel per guest, free of charge.
Outside, you'll find a sizeable patio area with outdoor furniture and views of the river. Perfect for snoozing in the sunshine, or enjoying lazy, early evening suppers with the family.
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.
You'll have use of the heated, outdoor swimming pool during the season. Unfortunately, there isn't a designated car parking space for River View, but you will be able to pull up outside the property for unloading suitcases and shopping. You can leave your car in the public car park, just up the hill, and if you need to pay, we'll honour the fees. There is a returnable £200 deposit against damages on this property.
