A warm welcome to Demelza 1, one of three properties situated in a private area of Helford Passage, all with stunning views of the river. Inside, you'll find a cosy hideaway with open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, two bright and airy bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, you'll have a patio area, plus shared use of the large, grassed garden. The beach, the Ferryboat Inn and outdoor heated swimming pool are all accessed through separate gates in the garden. Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Demelza, so your four-legged friend can come on holiday too!

Helford Passage nestles on the banks of the beautiful river Helford, with a sandy beach and direct access to the South West Coastal Path.  There’s plenty to do on site including hire of kayaks or paddle boards to get you out on the water, or there’s the heated outdoor swimming pool (open from May 1st until the end of September).  The Ferryboat Inn specialises in seafood dishes and holds regular music and quiz nights. The local ferry can take you across to pretty Helford village where you can meander along the shore to explore Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek.  Alternatively relax and enjoy good food at the welcoming Shipwrights Arms in Helford or venture further afield to the Historic Falmouth, rugged Land’s End or the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. All the traditional attractions of a Cornish Holiday such as nearby fishing trips, golf, cycling, horse-riding, seaside fish and chips, coastal walks, art galleries and stunning beaches make this a perfect base for couples or families all year round.

Open-plan living area with two two-seater sofas, flat-screen TV and large picture windows with stunning views of the river. Patio doors to the terrace. Dining area with table and seating for 6.
