Cottage
Tremorna has a truly special location, with superb views and a calm and peaceful atmosphere, and a large private water frontage with steps down to a private quay and direct access to the shore - making it virtually unique even in such a specially beautiful place as Helford. The cottage is family owned and has been used by current owners, children and grandchildren as a holiday home for nearly 50 years, and is much loved by all of us. The Helford River is a magical area for sailing, boating, walking, swimming and general outdoor relaxation. The famous gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan are a short ferry ride away, and sand and shingle beaches, woods and cliffs are minutes away by footpath or boat. The whole of the glorious Lizard peninsula lies within about 20 minutes' car journey.

The most beautiful cottage , every window has a picture postcard view , the garden has the sweep of the river and Helford to watch . Even in the mist you can hide out on the garden sofa . It may be a bit more than the other rentals but totally worth the prime spot of river and garden . Owner is very helpful too…

Excellent, well equipped cottage. Ideal for our 3 night spring break in Helford. Good walks from the doorstep, lovely views of the river. The summerhouse next to the creek is an ideal location for enjoying a relaxing cup of tea after a long day’s walk. We will visit again.

Good little cottage, homely rather than modern, a good place to getaway for a break. Real fire, everything you need in the kitchen. Lovely little garden access overlooking the river and a summerhouse. All quite simple but good. Yes it is chilly but there are electric heaters to warm the place in winter. The bedrooms will be better when they are double-glazed as there is quite a cold draught. The electrics are a tad iffy, some plug sockets work, some don't. The owner is superb for communication and sorting out any problems, there is also a housekeeper more local who is helpful and friendly. Good place to rest and to come and go and return to and light a fire and relax.

This cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our few days stay. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the garden in the evenings watching the boats. The cottage is a few strides from an excellent local and a few more to the local pub serving great seafood and other dishes. The area is great for walking and the ferry across to Helford Passage is less than 10 minutes walk away taking you to even more walking options and another great pub.

Four friends, myself and a pup, thoroughly enjoyed staying here over new year. The Village its self was quite and felt like the middle of nowhere which was exactly what we wanted! The cottage was beautiful and is the only place I've stayed and felt at home straight away, the bed and covers were warm and comfortable. The bathroom was well maintained and a powerful shower! The walks around this village are simply stunning and you could carry on walking for miles taking in the view. Everyone is friendly and we made a trip to the local shop and pup. Lastly the owner left the radiators on and a bottle of milk in the fridge. You could not ask for better hospitality. The only word I can use to describe our trip was perfect.

Tremorna is a very comfortable house in the middle of the delightful village of Helford. It is well equipped and extremely 'homely.' I must say that when self catering the quality of the bed is often poor but not so with Tremorna, as comfortable as our own bed at home. The garden and the summer house are lovely and we were able to sit out on one day enjoying the view and the sun. The cottage has everything that you need to self cater but the Shipwrights Arms is just a short stroll down the road. One big advantage of Tremorna is that it has its own parking space, parking is limited in the village itself. Piers, the owner, was very helpful in answering lots of 'silly' questions before our visit and when the boiler gave up the ghost he very quickly arranged for a plumber to sort it. There is no mobile signal but wifi works well. A thoroughly enjoyable stay, thank you Piers and Liz (the 'keeper') and the daffs were lovely!!!

Tremorna makes a comfortable base for exploring the Lizard Peninsular. The garden on the bank of the creek gives wonderful views of the estuary. The keeper of the cottage is most helpful and friendly. The bedrooms all have river views, and the beds are very comfortable - essential after a day of walking in this very steep area.

We spent a very enjoyable autumnal retreat at Tremorna. We particularly appreciated the creek-side garden and summerhouse where you can sit and watch the tides and birds, rain or shine.

Emerging from the leafy lanes leading to Helford our first view of this little cornish gem was the river lazily meandering through the village and beautiful thatched cottages dotted randomly along the edges. Tremorna was easy to find and, the parking spaces at the side of the house were a luxury as without them cars have to be parked in the official carpark at the edge of the village. The view from every window of the cottage was breathtaking, a river view with colourful boats bobbing around in the breeze. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean with a welcome card and a vase of flowers on the table. The furniture was traditional and comfortable in the lounge and had a well loved feel about it that made us feel instantly at home. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was ample extra bedding for colder nights, which only my 84 year old mum took advantage off. The jewel in the crown though was the beautiful secluded garden which overlooks the river, the summer house was comfortable and we enjoyed having lunch in there as it was sheltered from the wind. We had a lovely week discovering all the little villages and hidden coves, many of them great for families. There is a village shop which has a good range of daily necessities and there is a llidl at Helston for if you want more choice. . We didnt get round to trying out the village pub as by the evening we were pretty exhausted so we just watched tv . all in all we had a wonderfully relaxing week and really felt like we were in our own little piece of heaven. I cant think of anything negative to say about either Tremorna or Helford so thankyou Piers and family for allowing us to share your beautiful home if only for a short while, it was magical,
