The Farmhouse CottageHelford River
Location and Surrounding Area
Step out with the dog at dawn and watch the golden light turn the morning mist into magic. Pause on the bench out front beside the wooden porch to wiggle on wellies. Enjoy the hush of the countryside broken only by birdsong and mosey along country lanes with the little ones in tow. Roam permissive paths and rights of way to your hearts content through farms and woodland in search of trickling streams and ancient trees.
The Farmhouse Cottage is set amidst pasture in the hamlet of Treviades, just under a mile from Port Navas creek and the village of Constantine.
The clear waters and pristine banks of the Helford River are just a short drive away. Here you’ll find year-round dog-friendly beaches of Grebe and Porthallack along with the perenially popular village of Helford Passage with a beach, launching facilities and waterside Ferryboat Inn. A short drive away is The Lizard, where golden sands await at Porthleven Beach, or the renowned Kynance Cove.
Placed close to the best lunch place for miles, you’ll be able to amble down the lane to Potager Garden and Greenhouse Cafe, where organic food from the surrounding fields is crafted into exciting breakfasts and brunches. The Boatyard Cafe in Gweek or the New Yard Restaurant at Trelowarren are a surefire treat, a short hop in the car away.
Constantine Stores, your local village shop, sells fresh local produce and behind its modest facade lies the largest range of wines and spirits in the South West. Perfect for shaking up a cocktail at The Farmhouse Cottage after a day out. For drinks out and about, the Trengilly Wartha is accessible with a walk along the lanes and serves great pub food in a family-friendly atmosphere.
Don’t forget to book ahead at Port Navas Yacht Club, a lovely little waterside gem nearby where you will be well-looked after with delicious food and drink.
