About the Owner
About Liz Pearce
We live in Devon on a small farm. We have three children and four grandchildren and all of us love Helford Passage. Seashells was purchased in 2015 - and 2016 will be the first year of holiday letting. My husband and I love taking long walks along the coast path - the children enjoy boating, rock pooling on the beach and swimming in the outdoor pool in the summer. In the evening we enjoy a glass of wine at the Ferryboat Inn overlooking the water and a lovely meal there if we want to eat out. Only a few metres to walk back afterwards!
Liz Pearce purchased this cottage in 2015
Why Liz Pearce chose Truro & Falmouth area
We are delighted to have purchased Seashells Cottage which will be available from April 2016. We love Helford Passage and come here as often as we can. As soon as we arrive the first thing is to walk to the beach and enjoy a glass of wine at the Ferryboat. Next day it's on with the walking boots and set out on the coastal path which is on the doorstep - maybe take the ferry across to Helford village for more walking - or take out a boat and explore the creeks of Helford River.
What makes this cottage unique
Apart from being so close to the water there are so many things to do without getting in the car! The Helford River www.helford-river-boats.co.uk - the gardens, Glendurgan, (National Trust) and Trebah; the Ferryboat Inn; the golf course at Budock Vean; the South West coastal path on the doorstep. You can even have your groceries delivered!
A short car journey to the beautiful Kynance Cove where the National Trust cafe serves delicious food - and a visit to the Minack Theatre for a memorable performance in the summer is a must.

A perfect and comfortable base for exploring the Helford River
An idyllic location just a short stroll from the river bank, SW coast path and the ferry crossing to Helford. Seashells is equipped with everything we needed, is just a few steps to the pub, has easy parking and we were blessed with perfect weather for October to get out and about and take in the scenery. We would definitely return.
A little 'gem'.
Seashells is the perfect accommodation for a couple or a singleton - Liz has obviously put a great deal of effort in designing and creating
such a lovely property in which to spend a holiday . It is well designed and very well equipped and I loved everything about the property it was
definitely my sort of place and I have already booked again for 2017, so thank you Liz . Pat Long
Seashells is a beautiful cottage located at Helford Passage.
We have just had yet another wonderful weeks stay at Seashells. It was our fourth year staying at the cottage although we have been coming down to Helford Passage for nearly twenty years now with a large group of friends and family. Seashells is a delightful cottage which was completely refurbished a few years ago to provide exceptional accommodation in a very modern style and with a definite 'wow factor'. It is open plan living with with space over the sitting area and kitchen area reaching right to the apex of the roof giving it a really spacious and light feel. The kitchen is modern and well equipped with washer/dryer, fridge, freezer etc and the bedroom has a wonderful super king size bed. There is a parking space adjacent to the property so very easy parking and the fenced terrace outside provides sun all day. It is the perfect place for the two of us as we can enjoy a bit of peace away from the rest of the group but still be just a stones throw from them, the beach and the wonderful beach front pub - The Ferry Boat Inn. Roll on next year as we are about to book again.
A great stay in a beautiful little cottage
We've just returned from a superb week staying in Seashells. The cottage is ideal for 2 people - small but surprisingly light and airy with everything you could possibly need, from dishwasher and washing machine to beach chairs etc and all high quality. We arrived to find milk teabags and wine, a very nice touch.
We were lucky to have a hot sunny week, but the proximity to Helford River, beach, coastal path and pub means that you're sure to enjoy it whatever the weather.
We would certainly return!
Holiday at Seashells
This is a lovely property in a beautiful location. The cottage is beautifully presented and clean with all you need and a lovely welcome pack from the owner. It is positioned just a short walk from the unspoilt beach which is ideal for sailing and other water sports. There are lovely walks and gardens to visit nearby and you can cross the river on the Ferry to visit Helford.
We had had a rather hectic few months, so to arrive at Seashells on the hottest day of the year
was amazing .We had the laziest holiday we have ever had.....the property is perfect...it has a small terrace which catches the sun all day.
We ate at the Ferryboat a few times...ate in at other times.
Another lovely holiday in Helford Passage.
