The property

Penarvon House is a spectacular holiday home, idyllically overlooking the Helford Estuary on the Lizard Peninsular. Set over three floors and with an exquisite interior, this superbly located, detached house is an incredible spot to bring friends and family together for a holiday to remember. The high ceiling inside the property gives it a spacious feel that will allow you to feel right at home. The living areas are tremendously finished; the sitting room is graced by snug sofas, a Smart TV and a wonderful fireplace housing a warming open fire to make those nights in extra special. The spacious kitchen/diner boasts spectacular countryside views, as well as all of the necessary appliances you could possibly need, packed away neatly inside the stylish blue units. There is also a fabulously appointed games room to make the most of on a rainy day, complete with a snooker table. Three of the four bedrooms rest on the lower ground floor, including a fabulous four poster double bedroom, uplifted by scenery-filled windows creating the perfect sight to wake up to each morning. This floor also occupies a stunning family bathroom. A roomy king-size bedroom enjoys an elevated position on the first floor, showcasing the best views of the house towards the River Helford. The gardens here at Penarvon House are extensive, formal and simply wonderful; a patio area provides a heavenly spot to enjoy a relaxing drink or an alfresco meal.

Helford is a picturesque village on the south side of the Helford River. Helford is very popular with its thatched cottages, excellent village stores and especially The Shipwrights Arms, right on the edge of the creek with its waterside terrace. Just a short walk away is Frenchman’s Creek, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier. The Helford River Sailing Club is very popular and a regatta is held every August. In the summer a passenger ferry runs to Helford passage, the home of the Ferryboat Inn, and nearby to the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. The wildlife on the Helford River is diverse and a birdwatcher’s paradise.
