Apart from being so close to the water there are so many things to do without getting in the car! Begin with a swim in the heated outdoor pool (May to September) Helford River Boats (check their website) have all the local information about the ferry across the river. Within walking distance are two famous gardens, Glendurgan, (National Trust) and Trebah. The Ferryboat Inn; the golf course at Budock Vean; the South West coastal path are all on the doorstep. You can even have your groceries delivered! A short car journey to the beautiful Kynance Cove where the National Trust cafe serves delicious food - and a visit to the Minack Theatre for a memorable performance in the summer is a must. We have recently purchased Seashells Cottage and this will be our first year of holiday letting.

My wife and I took our 18month old daughter to Liz's cottage for a week and we had a lovely stay. We had visited Helford Passage before and fell in love with the place....with Liz's cottage the perfect place to stay when exploring the village and surrounding area. The cottage was spotless and the facilities very modern and comfortable. We would recommend to any friends and family and would like to say big thank you to Liz for making our stay so memorable. Thank you!

Helford Passage is a great location from which to explore the beautiful Helford River, either by boat or walking the extensive footpaths and formal gardens. Seashells forms part of a group of flats and cottages overlooking the small beach and its popular pub, with a ferry across to the lovely village of Helford. The cottage is modern, well furnished and fully equipped for two people and I have always found it clean and well prepared every time we have returned for our summer break.

From start to finish communication with Liz was excellent and Seashells more than lived up to our expectations. A lovely cottage which has been refurbished to a very high standard, Seashells has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. This was our first visit to Helford Passage and won't be the last; Seashells is close to the river and provides an ideal base to explore the area by foot or car - my favourite walk being the short one down to The Ferry Boat Inn! Highly recommended, we didn't want to leave Seashells and look forward to returning at some point in the future.

Our stay at seashells was fantastic. Seashells is such a beautiful cottage. It’s very clean and tidy, and everything in seashells is easy to use, making our stay so relaxing. There’s plenty to do in the area and an amazing local pub, with brilliant food and friendly staff. Lovely holiday overall.

We had an excellent stay at Seashells Cottage at the start of April. The cottage is perfectly equipped with everything we needed for our stay there: washing machine & tumble drier; hairdryer; dishwasher; plenty of crockery and glasses. It was lovely to use the log burner in the evenings and eat breakfast outside on the patio with the friendly little robin visiting us. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The cottage is fantastically located for walking on the Southwest Coast Path as well as lots of other walks in the local area. We also took our SUPs and were able to walk them down to the river for a paddle (30 second walk). Thanks to Liz for the wonderful cottage.

Wonderfull location just yards from the beach. Very well presented light and airy 1 bedroom modern cottage with everything you need for a perfect holiday. Only a 2 min walk to the pub on the beach and a swimming pool on site too. Have stayed at Seashells for the last few years and have already re booked for next year.
