Kiplings Quay has is a lovely riverside lawned garden from which you can watch the boats & swans gliding by. If you want to join in with the water fun, then there is a wide slipway into the water for river access, whether it be for a boat or a swim in the safe water. You have the possibility to hire dingy's, sailing & motor boats nearby & the house has mooring for these. The Helford Sailing Club provides short term membership for the use of the lovely clubhouse. It is just a short boat trip, at high tide, to Daphne du Maurier's famous 'Frenchmans Creek'. Or if you would rather watch the boats than sail them, you can walk along the fully signed footpath to the creek.
There is a table & seating for 6 guests for al fresco summer dining whilst watching the sun setting on the river. There is a BBQ during the summer months.

The West Country region
This is a wonderful area with fabulous sandy & safe beaches for swimming. It is the most southerly point in mainland England and has an abundance of wild wildflowers and wildlife, including the rare Cornish Chough. It has a remarkably beautiful coastline with many quaint old fishing harbours and tiny sheltered coves.
A visit anytime of the year is recommended as even in the winter months the climate is very mild, which encourages sub tropical plants to flurrish providing a backdrop of colour all year round.
This part of Cornwall is an absolute delight for those who enjoy the outdoors. It is possible to see seals, dolphins and basking sharks in the waters around the Lizard & at Falmouth sightseeing river boat trips are available which stop off for a famous Cornish Cream Tea.
There are many attractions all within a short drive of Helford -
The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth
The Penlee Gallery in Penzance
Tate Gallerry at St. Ives & the Barbara Hepworth Museum
Marazion and it's galleries is worth a visit
Mont St Michel
If visiting beautiful gardens is on your wish list then those at Trebah, Trevarno, Glendurgan. Trelissick, Carwinion & Trengwainton are all nearby & worth a visit.
There are some lovely beaches at Kynance Cove, Gunwalloe, Kennack & Mullion which are all a short drive away from Helford. Along with the many river beaches available to you along the footpaths heading out from Helford.
