Kiplings Quay really is a 'property to die for'. It is in such a glorious position, enjoying south facing 180 degree river views with it's own low tide beach & river can even feed the swans from your own private quay! You could not wish for more, a lovely house, great views, south facing garden, local boat hire, infact everything that you need for a truly Swallows & Amazons experience in a safe environment.

The house provides you with everything needed for a relaxing break, whatever time of the year you visit. Whether it be sailing, rock pooling, swimming, taking the coastal footpath or the ferry across the river it is all possible within a 5 min walk. If the weather turns against you, there is Wifi access, a choice of novels to read & 3 TVs with Sky or Blue Ray, DVD or Video. Alternatively, why not visit one of the nearby National Trust Houses, the Eden Project or the Lost Gardens of Heligan which are all nearby, or just walk to the village tearoom for a Cornish Cream Tea.

A House Book will provide you with full instructions on how to operate the euqipment in the house, such as TV, washing machine, dishwasher, car turntable, heating instructions etc. We also leave guide books for your perusal & suggestions for things to do with maps of the area.

Further details outdoors

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.

For ease of access we have provided a Hydraulic car turntable to turn your car around & there is off street parking for 3 cars, which is a rarity in this village!

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.
