The property

Enjoying a private location with views over Helford River is this substantial property, Penmorva.

Set in the peaceful village of Helford Passage, less than half a mile from a sand and shingle beach, this spacious property welcomes family and friends who are eager to explore the hidden gems of South Cornwall.

Internally, the property is divided into the main house and annexe-style wing, providing flexible sleeping options for a variety of party types.

Step inside and take comfort in the living/dining room, with plenty of seating arranged around the Smart TV as well as overlooking the garden, providing a peaceful spot to unwind after a day of exploring.

The kitchen comes well-equipped with a range of appliances, allowing the chef of the group to rustle up sumptuous meals whilst the dining area is stocked with crockery and utensils.

All can gather together and toast to a special Cornish escape over a lovingly prepared feast and glass of wine.

Take your pick from the six bedrooms, with the main house offering four bedrooms and the annex complete with two.

Upstairs you will find a family suite with a king-size bed and a children’s bed served by an en-suite shower room, along with two double-size rooms and a bathroom, whilst downstairs there is a lovely single room and a shower room.

Move into the annexe to find one further king-size bedroom and one double-size bedroom, accompanied by a bathroom and a practical sitting area with a kitchenette.

Take advantage of the mature garden in the warmer months, with a full length terrace providing the perfect place for alfresco meals whilst you sit back and soak up the riverside views.

Locally, the village of Mawnan Smith offers useful amenities including a convenience store and a pub, whilst a little further on at Falmouth you can enjoy the deep water harbour, National Maritime Museum, Pendennis Castle and quirky gift shops, art galleries and eateries.

With country and creekside walks, golf, water adventures in hired kayaks and boat trips all close by, you could be tempted not to hop in the car and discover the stunning beaches and famous gardens within easy reach.

Escape along the dramatic coastline and discover the bustling village of Porthleven, a secret surfing haven for experienced wave riders, or head further south to the Lizard Peninsula, where you can enjoy the white sands and turquoise waters of Kynance Cove.

Penmorva has all you need for a memorable stay with your loved ones in Cornwall.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
