S420 - Creek Cottage
from £58 /night help
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
A mile from Port Navas is Calamansack, a hamlet of cottages down a private lane beside the broad Helford River, looking over it and Frenchman�s Creek to wooded hillsides and fields. Lots of birds (swans, curlews, buzzards, herons and egrets), animals (foxes, badgers). Constantine, 3� miles. We let two cottages here. An infinitely peaceful scene, excellent for birdwatchers.
... Creek Cottage is semi-detached, in a wonderful position with uninterrupted views. Paved courtyard (picnic table, barbecue, flowers, herbs); steep steps up to tiny 'hideaway' garden with seat (river/boating views). In front, a lane leads to the shore with quiet, sheltered picnic spots beneath trees, and a slipway where small boats can be launched. Farmhouse and three other old cottages (see S412) nearby.
The cottage has been enlarged and updated to make a comfortable family home. Living room with old inglenook fireplace (woodburner), beams, paintings, TV/DVD, light with two windows (wonderful river views to Frenchman's Creek). Fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer). Utility area (washing machine, tumble drier) with side door. Shower-room (suite). Steep stairs (stairgate) up to three bedrooms � a double with dressing/cot room and en suite shower-room (suite), and two twin, one with 2'6" beds (zip-linkable to 5' double); bathroom (suite, shower over bath plus hand-shower).

The Cornwall region
Cornwall�s �Med�: here is Cornwall at its warmest, most sheltered; of creeks and tidal waters penetrating deep inland, deep in woods, silent except for birdsong; of wonderful gardens growing things that live nowhere else outdoors in England (marvellous in rhododendron, camellia, magnolia time, from March to end of May especially); of sailing boats everywhere decorating the sea; of harbour villages where the light is Mediterranean - dazzling in the sunshine. And really very little that is ugly has been allowed to be built.
Here is Truro, Cornwall�s (small) capital, with its 20th century cathedral; Falmouth, resort town and cargo/cruise ship/yacht port, superbly sited; and the glorious Helford River. Trewithen, Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah, Heligan (Lost Gardens of) and Caerhays are among the finest gardens. In the very middle of Cornwall, Lanhydrock house is very special, so is its garden. Not the greatest area for beaches, but good sandy ones near Veryan and Portscatho, in St Mawes, and around Falmouth and the Helford River�s mouth. Not to be missed is St Just-in-Roseland�s churchyard; nor - within easy reach - is The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
Port Navas: beautiful creek-side hamlet, completely unspoilt. Oyster farm. The tidal creek leads into the Helford River, and beside it a lane to Glendurgan and Trebah gardens and Helford Passage (sandy beach, good pub, boat hire) where pedestrian ferry to Helford village (nice pub). Many other beaches nearby. Constantine (nearest shops/good food pubs), 1� miles; Falmouth, 6.
