About the property

River View at Helford Passage. Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. Shared outdoor pool.

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. Please note: we are now providing one bath and one hand towel per guest, free of charge.

Outside, you'll find a sizable patio area with outdoor furniture. Perfect for snoozing in the sunshine, or enjoying lazy, early evening suppers with the family.

For bookings of one week or over, we'll have a welcome hamper of Taylors filter coffee, Smugglers tea, milk, a bottle of wine and a selection of Cornish Cornish Fairings ready for your arrival.

You'll have use of the heated, outdoor swimming pool during the season. There is a returnable £200 deposit against damages on this property.

Gorgeous cottage - magical view

  • 5 of 5

Just up the hill from the Ferry Boat Inn, River View has it all: comfort, facilities - and probably the best view in Helford Passage.

Comfy beds, two showers, well-equipped kitchen - even a log fire for when it gets chilly.

Simply fabulous...

Great stay at River View

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good short holiday in River View at the end of May. We are a family of four who have often holidayed in Helford Passage and we love staying there. This cottage is well-equipped and comfortable. The sitting room is small but nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen is compact but well-equipped. Upstairs the bedrooms are quite sparsely furnished - you are just given hangers and hooks for your clothes and for some reason there is no dressing table in the main bedroom so I did my hair and make up sitting on the floor in front of the mirror. Not quite sure why this is and a chest of drawers and a dressing table would be much appreciated. There really wasn't anywhere to put your stuff! Having said that the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms are both modern and fresh and the showers were pretty good for showering off sand and sun block after a day out. The best thing though is the location of this place as the views of the river and beach are just so gorgeous. We had quite good weather so we did two evening barbecues in the little front garden. A very nice Weber barbecue was supplied which was great. We had a minor issue with some kitchen equipment not working but Holiday Cornwall were fantastic at sorting this out and it was fixed within two hours. We were very impressed with Holiday Cornwall overall as they were friendly and efficient. This cottage is on the pricier side but you are paying for such a gorgeous location. When you stay here you will feel that other holiday makers who are visiting Helford Passage will be looking at the cottage with a certain amount of envy! I do really recommend it and we hope to come back in the future.

Other Activities:

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.

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 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 home-made 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 season so there's no rush back - take your time, relax and enjoy.
