This large spacious house undoubtedly occupies one of the finest south-facing sites on the Helford River and is set in a beautifully landscaped, terraced garden of some three acres in total, right on the waters edge. Breath-taking views, sumptuously furnished, very well equipped and extremely well maintained inside and out; as self-catering holiday homes go, Ridifarne has to be one of Cornwalls finest! A wide terrace and water garden running the whole width of the house forms a sun trap with the most amazing views and steps from the lower terrace offer direct access to Bar Beach and the river. The property is unsuitable for those with children under 5 years.
