Boutique Cottages in Helford

The beautiful area of Helford is like stepping back in time; an unspoilt, idyllic corner of the country where sleepy hamlets and villages nestle, the river snakes slowly out to the sea and ancient oak woodland hangs low over the water and narrow roads, creating emerald tunnels. Historically, this area was once an important port where trading ships brought rum, tobacco and lace, whilst pirates and traders populated the banks of the river. Daphne du Maurier honeymooned here and her novel Frenchman’s Creek was much influenced by her stay in this gorgeous tucked-away haven.

These days, Helford provides an enchanted retreat both in the glimmering heat of summer and atmospheric depths of winter. Browse through our luxury selection of cottages in Helford and find the perfect place to hide away from the world for a while in a sublime Cornish bubble. Whether you are looking forward to a well-deserved solo escape with the dog, a loved-up couple’s retreat or are whisking the whole family away for Arthur Ransome-esque adventures, you are sure to have an unforgettable experience.
