This beautiful area of the Helford River has so much to offer on your doorstep including the fabulous gardens at Trebah and Glendurgan and you can find kayaking, fishing and boat trips all from the hotel's private foreshore. Take the ferry to a waterside pub, take a long or short walk to explore close by or further afield to Falmouth, Port Navas and Constantine or why not take the ferry across to Helford Village and explore the area across the river. With 24 hours' notice the hotel can arrange a picnic basket full of tasty treats for you to take with you. The pretty village of Mawnan Smith includes a traditional public house, a local shop with Post Office and the Cornish Maid cafe.
