Hop on the water taxi at Helford Passage and sail across to Helford Village, visit the Shipwrights Arms for a hearty crab sandwich and walk past the many thatched cottages sitting along the riverbank.
The maritime town of Falmouth is bursting with a great selection of eclectic shops, cafes and restaurants, and with three stunning beaches to discover you can spend days exploring here. The passenger ferry from the harbourside can take you to the gorgeous village of St Mawes on the Roseland peninsula and you may even see a pod of dolphins on the way.
If there are horticulturists in the party, visit the very beautiful Trelissick with a wonderful woodland walk, excellent cafe and gardens, or Trebah Gardens with views down the verdant valley to the private beach.
