Helford House

2774 is no longer with us

If you were looking for cottages like Helford House, how about trying these:

Located on one of Cornwall’s most desirable private roads but hidden from view on the banks of the tranquil Helford River, this pretty detached property is a real holiday hideaway.

"There are backwater places all hidden from view", a line from the famous song ‘Messing about on the river’ that could easily have been written about Helford House.

Approached by a very steep, sloping zigzag path through the trees, which is an adventure in itself, it is only as you descend and are nearly at the front door that you can really appreciate this very special house. The raised wooden deck accessed from the sitting-room is a great place to dine when the weather is good, and when you want to get closer to the water, the riverside patio with your own private jetty really is perfect for swimming and river access when the tide is in.

Designed to make the most of this amazing location across the river to Port Navas, Helford House is a very special holiday home (please supervise children by the river).
