The Old Tea Room Cottage
- Pet Friendly
Weeks commencing 6th and 13th October reduced
Sweet and discreet, The Old Tea Room’s stone exterior and sash windows create a cosy cottage facade, while inside, modern interiors invite guests to rest and relax.
Open-plan living and simple design create a calm ambience as touches of velvet in bold terracotta and forest green, pale wooden accents and slate flooring exude an eclectic vibe.
The property’s magnum opus is its long bi-fold doors which invite the idyllic sounds of Port Navas inside.
Cornish light shimmers through the sympathetic sash windows and ripple on white-painted stone walls. Snuggle up on the love-seat sofa and gather around the focal fire during colder months, and open up the folding doors to dine al fresco when summer calls.
Upstairs in the bedrooms, white walls and pale pallets continue the serene ambience while nautical features and Cornish art nod to its coastal setting.
Positioned just down the road is Port Navas Yacht Club Bar and Restaurant. Hire kayaks or paddleboards to spend the day exploring the calm creeks of Helford River, from the famous Frenchman’s Creek to the quieter inlet of Polwheveral, and come back to a waterside supper. This is the place to be for a quiet country escape in Cornwall.

Location and Surrounding Area
A walker’s paradise, Port Navas sits in the heart of rural bliss. With access to footpaths that lead you to ancient woodland, subtropical gardens, garden cafes and historic pubs, adventure awaits at The Old Tea Room.
If you’re seeking a water excursion and a more unique way to explore the area, boats and moorings are available for hire locally at Port Navas Yacht Club. For boat moorings/berths in Port Navas contact Tom on 01326 340525. The creek itself dries for about two hours either side of low tide.
Port Navas is also within easy reach of either Constantine or Mawnan Smith village both with convenient local shops for days when dining in is preferred.
Located a driving distance from the rugged and wild clifftops of the Lizard peninsular, excitement is never too far away from the serenity of Port Navas. Passenger ferries are available from Helford Passage to Helford and from Falmouth Prince of Wales Pier to the upper River Fal, St. Mawes, Truro and Helford River.
A short 20-minute drive takes you to the creative and vibrant town of Falmouth which is rich in fabulous eateries, beautiful beaches and family-friendly attractions such as the National Maritime Museum and Pendennis Castle. Falmouth is never short of festivities. This vibrant university and working town has a booming art and independent business scene and a rich cultural calendar, with leading events like the International Sea Shanty Festival and the Fal Oyster Festival.
