Halliards, Helford Passage on the river. Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. Outdoor pool.
Halliards is a beautiful ground-floor apartment at Helford Passage and just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn. The property has stunning views and is as close as you can to the beach. It's recently been renovated to create a third bedroom, and refurbished which has given the space a beautiful and contemporary feel. Decorated throughout in warm cream, and accentuated with rich, modern fabrics and bright ornaments, the owners have created a relaxing haven away from the stresses of everyday life.
Step through the front door and you'll find yourself in a huge open-plan living and dining area. There's a large wooden dining suite which comfortably seats six for lazy lunches, or for playing one of the family games you'll find in the wicker baskets behind you. The kitchen itself is full of brand-new appliances, all within easy reach, and there's plenty of available workspace for preparing picnics or finalising fishy feasts. The living area has two stylish, comfortable sofas with throws and scatter cushions for ultimate comfort. Or settle down in the window seat with a cushion and a glass of cold cider, and watch the boats on the river. These French doors open onto the private terrace where you'll find a outdoor furniture and a barbecue. There's even a Trachycarpus Fortunei on the patio which will fool your colleagues into thinking you've gone Mediterranean!
Back inside, you'll find the master bedroom has a king-size bed and a large built-in wardrobe with ample drawer space. There's a set of singles in the second bedroom, and adult size bunk beds in the third. No wardrobe in this room.There is a walk-in shower cubicle, as well as a separate restroom with a loo and hand basin. You'll find the tumble dryer in here, as well as a drying rack and a heated towel rail, so your towels should never be damp.
On another note, Halliards is relatively disabled friendly. There is a ramp access leading to the French doors with a slightly raised sill and the whole flat is on one level apart from one step into the shower cubicle.
New storage heaters make this apartment a great choice for an an autumn or winter break. Enjoy a brisk walk around the headland, and head home to a snug apartment for a hot coffee on the window seat, watching the waves on the river as the light settles around you. Close the curtains against the twilight and settle down for a restful, cosy evening, chatting with the family, and planning the next day's adventure.
We'll have a welcome hamper of Smugglers tea, Taylors filter coffee, milk, Cornish biscuits and a bottle of wine ready for your arrival. You'll have use of the heated, outdoor swimming pool during the season. There is a returnable £100 deposit against damages on this property, plus one designated space in the residents' car park.

You couldnt have wished for a more idylic place to stay, with the most comfortable, clean and spacious cottage for an amazing price! The location of the cottage is second to none, the views are breath taking and surrounding area of the helford passage simply stunning! Every morning we had a coffee outside watching the mist rise from the river...then the sun rise...we could have stayed all day just in thr cottage watching the water! Booking and service was easy and extra help with us arriving on boxing day was all sorted...even having a hamper with tea and wine waitint for us! We love hilliards and will definatly look to book again!
It has an excellent view over the Helford River and even on a windy day you can sit as feel you are by the sea. All the facilities are great and the porch allows you to put the boots and maybe wet clothes safe to dry.An ideal holiday property and so glad it is being let . My parents enjoyed many happy days there.
Activity and Interests
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 from the kiosk. 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, so it's safe for the little ones.
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 home-made 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.
