Overview

About the property

Boat House 5 is a recently renovated ground-floor apartment at Helford Passage

Boat House 5 is a recently renovated ground-floor apartment at Helford Passage, just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn and the beach. A neutral colour scheme creates a space that feels relaxed and informal. Tasteful artwork, decorative ornaments and soft fabrics complete the the decor. Ceiling lights and table lamps offer plenty of light and makes the apartment cosy after the colonial blinds have been pulled for the evening.

Step through the door into a large, open-plan living area with a fully equipped kitchen at one end, and a spacious lounge at the other. You'll find comfy chairs, and sofas that can be arranged to form an L shape - ideal for stretching out and relaxing after a busy day on the water. Bring your own book or choose from the ones provided - anything from colourful cookery to local places of interest.

The fully equipped kitchen is beautifully presented with sage green units and chrome appliances. The dining area comes with chairs or a bench seat if you prefer to stretch out over breakfast with hot coffee and the morning newspapers.

You'll find the bedroom simple but luxurious, with a king-size bed and plenty of concealed storage space. The en-suite is tiled in warm, earthy tones, and has both an overhead shower and a bath - dim the lights, add some bubbles and really relax. There's a heated towel rail to keep your towels warm and dry.

Boat House 5 is perfect for a romantic retreat.

The apartment has under-floor heating, should you need it. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages on this property.

Perfect place for an escape to the beautiful Helford Passage

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week in this idyllic hideaway in South Cornwall. We didn't want to leave this small slice of heaven.

Boathouse 5 is a luxuriously appointed, well thought out retreat just minutes from the beach and the Iconic Ferry Boat Inn. Little touches make all the difference when you're away from home; comfy super-king bed, excellent shower, great bookshelf. Even the knives were sharp (be careful!).

There is plenty to do locally, from the South West Coastal Path, Kayaking & Paddle boarding, Swimming Pool, Exploring the river and local villages to the extraordinary gardens and beaches. If you're a National Trust Member make sure you take your cards.

The welcome pack on arrival was brilliant with local produce as well as wine and coffee.

We wouldn't hesitate to go back and just wish we could've stayed longer.

Down by the river

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property, fully equipped and just right for two people. It looks as if it has been done up only yesterday. There is a parking space directly outside the front door and only 25 yard walk to the pool. There is a short walk down to the riverfront where the ferry, pub and shop can be found. The views are lovely. You can walk along the coast in either direction. Falmouth is only 15/20 minutes away and it is only 10 minutes from the main east/west road. Therefore easy access to other places such as Truro, Penzance, St. Ives etc. There are two gardens very close and another two within 30 minutes drive.

Other Activities:

Trebah and Glendurgan gardens are just a few minutes away, and stunning at any time of the year. Falmouth is our nearest town, where you'll find the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle, pubs and restaurants.

We've got fishing trips nearby, golf, cycling, horse-riding, seaside fish and chips, coastal walks, art galleries and stunning beaches. A perfect base for breaks.

Helford Passage is about a mile from the village of Mawnan Smith. It's on the river - the Helford, of course, with a lovely sandy beach, and direct access onto the coastal path. We've got the Ferryboat Inn on site, which specialises in local seafood dishes and exquisite hot chocolates with Baileys Cream. It hosts regular music nights, quizzes and other events during the year, including the Helford Passage Regatta in early August.

You could hire a rowing boat or kayak for the day at the Helford Passage kiosk, or book some paddle boarding lessons. If, like me, you’re a lazy sun-worshipper, then stretch out on the beach with the latest blockbuster and a locally made Roskilly’s Chocolate Brownie and Marshmallow ice cream, or a bag of warm, buttery popcorn. Browse through Sarah’s Shop @ the Beach, for locally made jewellery, quirky gifts, and the children’s all-essential, beach-side bucket and spades.

We’ve got an outdoor, heated swimming pool on site too, with poolside loungers, chairs and parasols. It’s in a secure area behind a coded gate.

From the kiosk, you can catch the foot ferry across to Helford Village, meander up the leafy path to the Shipwrights Arms and enjoy a homemade pasty and a glass of cold, Cornish cider. If you fancy something a little more energetic, you could wander along the river shore and explore Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek. The ferry runs into the evening during the season so there’s no rush back – take your time, relax and enjoy.
