Stay & Supper

Gorgeously open-plan living on the river in Helford, in this contemporary meets historical upside-down barn conversion. The large kitchen opens delightfully up to the rafters whilst the living room houses deep and comfortable sofas atop wide planked oak flooring.

Late nights & Lie ins

Down the modern staircase find two generously double bedrooms and a cute twin. Both doubles are kitted out with king-sized beds in rooms choc-full of character and hints of secret passageways.

Soak off the salt water

The master bedroom’s ensuite is truly scrumptious with a  double ended bath (perfect for soaking with a copy of Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek) and a huge shower. The family bathroom is similarly stylish.

Mod cons

Fully kitted out with all the mod cons including TV, DVD, woodburner, WiFi and BBQ.


Pack walking shoes and explore the quirky footpaths at the bottom of the gorgeous garden, leading to Helford Village and the infamous Frenchman’s Creek. Paddle on the Helford and hire boats and finish off the day in the pub.
