Pretty cottages line the quayside. Rowing boats potter along the water. A family of swans gently patrol the water’s edge. Holidays in Port Navas are nothing short of magic.
Nestled in a creek up the Helford River, Port Navas village is a relaxing destination for those wanting a peaceful break in Cornwall.
The turning of the tide and the sounds of nature are the only things breaking the quiet in Port Navas. But it wasn’t always this way. Once a busy river port of vast importance, cut granite from local quarries was hauled into ships at Port Navas, destined to end up at the base of Nelson’s Column and London Embankment.
All that hustle and bustle is well and truly a thing of the past. Port Navas today offers a retreat amongst woodland and water. Opportunities to explore the creeksides of the Helford River are abundant, from the famous Frenchmans Creek just across the river, to the quieter inlets of Polwheveral and Polpenwith.
Excitement is never too far away from Port Navas, and your holiday cottage here will be in driving distance of the rugged clifftops of the Lizard peninsular, wonderful nearby beaches, and Falmouth’s great restaurants. So you can enjoy the best of both worlds on your holiday in Cornwall.
With a friendly yacht club and easy access to the water, this is the place to be for a quiet country escape in Cornwall. See our collection of Port Navas cottages and self-catering holiday homes, and enjoy a peaceful stay in this beautiful corner of Cornwall.
