The property

Gwydhen is a super period apartment forming part of an Edwardian mansion in the picturesque little creekside village of Port Navas.

This is one of the most sought after areas of south Cornwall's waterfront, renowned both for its scenic beauty and the superb day sailing waters of the Helford and Fal Rivers as well as Falmouth Bay.

There are many safe beaches and coves in the area including Durgan on the banks of the Helford River as well as Maenporth, Swanpool and Gyllyngvase between the apartment and Falmouth.

The South West Coast Path connects these beaches over stunning headlands that look out over Falmouth Bay linking various attractions and places to eat including the Ferry Boat Inn at Helford Passage and the public gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah. Falmouth, just six miles away, is host to the National Maritime Museum and Events Square which is the location for the onshore activities during Falmouth Sailing Week and various festivals including an oyster festival and the Sea Shanty Festival.

A rail link from Falmouth leads to Truro, Cornwall's capital city, that has many national and independent retailers amongst its attractive Georgian and Victorian cobbled streets.

The villages of Mawnan Smith and Constantine, both with village shops, are within two miles, as is the Trengilly Wartha Inn, an excellent country pub that has won many awards for its beer and food.

Why not stroll down to the Quay at Port Navas Yacht Club which is open Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtime for freshly cooked local produce. Gwydhen (Cornish for 'Tree') is an upper floor apartment with original features and large windows taking in views across the 3 acres of mature, well stocked gardens which include a Japanese Garden with a zig-zag walkway across a 'dry ocean'.

There are plenty of places to sit and take in these truly inspiring gardens.

Equipped with a double and twin bedroom, the accommodation is spacious and comfortable and ideal for couples and families.

There is a large sitting room with an open fire and ample comfy seating with big windows to maximise the garden views.

The kitchen is well equipped for your self-catering holiday.

Take a soak in the bath after a hard days exploring.

Gwydhen is a real home from home in a great spot for exploring this very special part of Cornwall.

About the location


Falmouth 9 miles; Truro 14 miles.

A charmingly picturesque country village with a few shops, a pub and a lovely church, set among green rolling meadows and wooded valleys leading down to the beautiful Helford river, just 3 miles away. Famous for its mild climate, this quieter part of Cornwall has the outstanding gardens of Trebah, Penjerrick, Glendurgan and Carwinion all within 4 miles. For nature lovers and those who enjoy boats, the misty reaches of the Helford river meander upstream to Gweek, where the world renowned Seal Sanctuary looks after the region’s many abandoned and injured seals. Falmouth, with its narrow streets, natural harbour and National Maritime Museum is just 20 minutes by car, while Flambards theme park (8 miles) and Argal Lake with its water sports attractions make great days out. The nearby beautiful Lizard Peninsula, with its outstanding beaches and quaint fishing villages dotting the rocky coastline, has the benefit of outstanding scenery, tranquillity and some great walks.

Note: The Village of Port Navas is accessed via typical narrow country lanes.
