Simon, staying at Calamansac East and West Wings
Teaching my grandson to fish.
Calamansac is a private 50 acre estate of meadow garden and woodland which forms the western headland of Port Navas Creek and overlooks the Helford River. There are 3 self-catering holiday homes to rent on the estate – East Wing (sleeps 11), West Wing (sleeps 9) and Sail Loft (sleeps 7) – accommodating up to 27 people in total and providing a unique holiday setting for large groups or as individual holiday homes.
All 3 properties are dog friendly and the location is absolute heaven for four-legged friends! The properties have been incredibly well planned and include wheelchair access, ground floor bedrooms and showers. Although linked to East Wing via the games room, West Wing has entirely private access and parking. Huge savings are available on under-occupancy bookings for smaller groups looking for plenty of space.
Direct access to both the Helford River and Port Navas Creek provides a unique opportunity for sailing, etc. with the launching of dinghies at most states of the tide and weather (apart from low spring tides). A private road through the woods leads to the slipway, safe anchorage and a boathouse. Falmouth is around 7 miles.

Calamansac is secluded, seven miles from Falmouth and close to the village of Port Navas. Access is by a steep private road, about half a mile long, leading from the centre of the village.
Trengilly Wartha Inn is within 2.5 miles and serves very good food. Or if you are bringing a boat why not pop round to The Ferry Boat Inn by water.
Port Navas Yacht Club – your local, quirky gem on the edge of Port Navas creek. For opening times and menu please visit www.pnyc.co.uk. Please book ahead with your hosts Nigel/Mike 01326 340065 as the venue is somewhat bijou! Dogs and children welcome. For boat moorings/berths – Tom 01326 340525
Whilst those visiting Calamansac are sure to want to spend most of their time exploring the idyllic Helford River and sheltered boating waters, it should be noted that the contrasting rugged cliffs of the Lizard Peninsula are only a twenty-five minute drive away.
