Three golf courses are situated a short drive away as are numerous National Trust Houses & Gardens. The Eden project is also only 15km away which is always worth a visit. Also close by are the popular coastal ports of Charlestown, Mevagissey, Polperro and Goran Haven making the house the perfect holiday home to explore Cornwall.

The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall is surrounded by the sea, has beautiful sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, rolling hills & unspoilt countryside.
With its mild climate Cornwall has numerous magical gardens to visit including Trelissik, Trebah, The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Llanhydrock (NT), the grandest house in Cornwall with an exquisite long gallery ceiling & lovely gardens. There are also lots of family attractions to visit including the Eden Project, Fistral beach in Newquay for surfing, and for nature lovers the Cornish Bird of Prey centre, & the Seal sanctury at Gweek.
We also as a family love to visit Paradise Park, a zoo & amusement park, St. Michael's Mount, & Minack Theatre & beach.
All of the above attractions are within an hour's drive of Helen House apart from Minack Theatre - but the views & beach on a sunny day are well worth the effort!
The Fowey area
The property is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in an elevated position enjoying outstanding estuary views of the beautiful River Fowey.
The town of Fowey (as featured on "Three men in another boat" & Channel 4's "Relocation Relocation") has a unique unspoilt and ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages. The medieval and tudor cottages, narrow winding streets with glimpses of the river below, busy with yachts and boats, cobbled walkways perfumed with flowers from hanging baskets and window boxes and the quay bustling with life all help to create a unique atmosphere.
Privately owned "Place" a part 15th century fortified manor house, viewed from the balcony of Helen House, dominates the town. Still owned by the Treffrys, one of Cornwall's most ancient families, its fortifications and high boundary wall give the town a historical atmosphere.
There is a good selection of quality restaurants, cafes, pubs & shops to be found The town has strong connections with the world famous authoress Daphne Du Maurier who spent most of her life living in the area.
Fowey is excellent for learning to sail (there are two yacht clubs offering tuition for beginners & the more advanced sailors - we can provide contacts & details of costs), canoeing, rock-pooling, snorkeling as well as golfing, boat hire, horse riding, walking, crab catching off the harbour pontoons or for beach relaxation.
Nearby is "Polkeris beach watersports" centre where sailing boats, kayaks and windsurf boards can be hired (together with wetsuits and buoyancy aids) at a very reasonable cost. The centre uses new equipment and offers excellent tuition by the hour or there are daily rates. A safety boat is in the water whenever the equipment is hired.
Much of the land around Fowey is owned by the National Trust with many delightful walks both in the countryside and along the coast. A haven for flora and fauna, this area has long been popular with naturalists, bird watchers (with sightings of ospreys & little egrets) painters and walkers, particularly during the gentle spring and autumn weather so common here.
Close by are delightful fishing villages to explore such as Polperro, Golant, Gorran Haven, Charlestown & Mevagissey. A short drive to the North is the moated 13th -century Restormel Castle, a steam train which runs from Bodmin, on the edge of Bodmin Moor, & Lostwithiel home to several good restaurants & the centre of Cornwall's antique trade.
