THINGS TO DO ON YOUR HELFORD HOLIDAY
Our favourite two walks from Helford are down to the atmospheric Frenchman’s Creek made famous by the Daphne Du Maurier novel, and the other way along to the river mouth and Dennis head, and around the headland to the riverside hamlet of St Anthony with its Norman church.
Cornwall’s gardens are a blaze of colour from March-June, and a couple of the best are just across the river - Trebah and Glendurgan – catch the ferry and stroll along the coast path.
Helford is all about getting out on the water, and you can either bring your own boat (arrange temporary membership at the sailing club – 01326231006) or hire one from Sailaway (01326231357) or Helford River Boats (01326250770), or just catch the ferry! Shallow draught moorings can be arranged off Helford Point; contact us for details. Lots of our guests have fun deep sea fishing with Dan (www.bluepointercharter.co.uk)- see if you can catch your dinner! There is a golf club nearby in Mullion (01326240685) and horse-riding at Newton farm (www.newton-equestrian.co.uk).
There are small beaches all along the river, fringed by woodland ,that you can walk to, and larger coves with dramatic cliffs, such as the famous Kynance Cove, are just the other side of the Lizard, about 20 minutes drive.

Food and pubs.
Don’t miss the delicious Roskilly’s ice cream and famous Vicky’s bread (available at the village shop), locally caught crab sandwiches at the Helford tea rooms, and organic Gear farm pasties (3 miles away in St. Martin). There are lots of country pubs to enjoy, including the Shipwrights Armson our doorstep in Helford, the swanky re-vamped Ferryboat Inn on the other side of the river, and the forever wonderful, family friendly Trengilly Wartha at Constantine.The Ship Inn at Mawgan Great food by Greg and Ally.
St. Ives has lots of galleries, including the Tate and the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture garden, and we now have our own Art gallery just outside Helford at Kestle Barton (on the way to Frenchman’s Creek)
