Stay & Supper

A careful mix of original fittings and fixtures with sleek modern style Avallen is light, spacious, open plan and open to the rafters. The living space – with central architectural ‘heart’ staircase -opens up to the garden for al fresco dining. Find woodburning stove next to contemporary art on the ground floor. The kitchen is super modern with clever features that hide virtually all the mod cons for uncluttered living, yet caters for those with a penchant for all that is culinary. Upstairs is further chill-out space with games and cosy sofas for proper lounging around.

Late nights & Lie ins

The master bedroom on the ground floor is a writer’s paradise with desk, sofa and super king bed, whilst the two further double/ twins on the ground floor are fabulously flexible sleeping with views of the meadow garden. Climb the architectural staircase to find an almost self-contained apartment bedroom with king size bed and log burner to boot.

Soak off the salt water

Find the large family bathroom downstairs along with a fabulous ensuite bathroom attached to the master with drenching power shower and a bath big enough for two.

Mod cons

Completely kitted out with everything you need to enjoy the sublime seclusion of the Helford find WiFi, TVs and DVD players, iPod doc and CD player as well as traditional board games to keep you entertained.


Pack simply to enjoy the Helford River, explore the infamous Frenchman’s Creek, art gallery and ancient farmstead that Avallen is situated in. Expect the urge to picnic, explore and sail gregariously along the water.
