|Minimum Stay||1 - 7 nights|
Tremayne is a first-floor apartment at Helford Passage, just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn and the beach. It's decorated throughout in warm magnolia with nautical-themed artwork and fabrics rich in texture.
Open the front door into a foyer, and you'll find the apartment upstairs. The sizable, open-plan living area is cleverly organised, allowing each area plenty of space. The kitchen is beautifully equipped, and all the utensils and appliances are all within easy reach. Decorated in rich, earthy tones and with plenty of workspace, this really feels like being in your kitchen at home. Over to the dining area and you'll see the extendable wooden table, large enough for indulgent family suppers or noisy games of Scrabble. Back into the living area and stretch out on the comfy, cream leather curved sofa with a book, or watch a DVD on the television. Step out onto the balcony with incredible views of the river and all the boating activity. There's a small wooden patio set out here, perfect for early morning buttery toast and hot coffee.
The master bedroom in Tremayne has a king-size bed and plenty of storage space. You'll find twin beds in the second room. Both of these bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. There is a set of 2' 6" bunk beds in the third bedroom. No wardrobe, put ample drawer and shelf space. The family bathroom has a large walk-in shower cubicle with a hand basin and a heated towel rail. There's a separate loo, so fewer queues in the morning!
We'll have a welcome hamper of Smugglers tea, Taylors filter coffee, milk, Cornish biscuits and a bottle of wine ready for your arrival.You'll have shared use of the heated, outdoor swimming pool, and there is one designated space in the residents' car park. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages on this property.
Lovely apartment. Fab views. Decor a tad old fashioned and furnishings becoming a bit tired, but I understand it is going to have a make over over during winter 2017.
Tremayne almost become a second home to us, we have stayed here so often.
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 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 season so there's no rush back - take your time, relax and enjoy.
