Diddy PenpolHelford River
Location and Surrounding Area
The land along this part of the Helford River is managed by the National Trust, so dogs, children and grown-ups alike are free to roam in the meadows and woodlands, that lie just a fifteen-minute walk from Diddy Penpol.
The gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah are also easily reached by foot, where Jurassic ferns, water lilies, and forests of bamboo await. Trebah is a dog-friendly venue with a full calendar of events, including open air live performances in the amphitheatre.
The pretty village of Mawnan Smith has a café, a restaurant, and a 16th century thatched inn at its heart. You’ll find all the essentials in the village, and a fifteen-minute car ride into Falmouth places you within reach of everything you could possibly need – from supermarkets to independent coffee houses, to art galleries and passenger ferries.
For a delicious lunch experience like no other, walk to the Helford River, to dine on the creekside at Port Navas Yacht Club. Be sure to book ahead though, as it’s small and very popular.
