The property

If you are looking for a truly special house for an amazing holiday then look no further.

Located in a stunning setting, proudly sat above the Helford Estuary, is the award-winning Penarvon House which was featured on TV’s Fantasy Homes by the Sea, and the minute you arrive you will understand why.

Driving down a private lane you reach the house entrance, passing through the electric gates and there, in front of you is a house that dreams are made of.

Completely private and enclosed you will notice terraces on both sides from where you get the most breathtaking views of the estuary.

Entering into the house is where you will sense the real WOW factor.

Passing the cloakroom and utility room, you enter into the massive light and airy kitchen and dining area with French doors leading out onto the patio terrace.

The superbly-equipped, fully-fitted kitchen features Neff appliances including a double oven.

Passing the large handmade dining table, four steps will take you into the wonderful 15 metre sitting room.

This spectacular relaxing room has amazing views every which way you look.

For cooler evenings, and for wonderful winter breaks, the large open fire will ensure cosy evenings sat in front of the fully-integrated 50” TV with family or friends in the comfy sofas and armchairs.

The bedrooms, again, are truly luxurious with three double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities, and a twin bedroom with a large bathroom opposite; three of the rooms are on the lower ground floor as you enter the house but look out over to the rear gardens, whilst the master room is on the upper floor and commands superb views.

If you have children with you, they will no doubt be spending a great deal of time in the superb games room where they can even have the adventure of sleeping there as well as there are comfortable pull-out beds.

Just a few minutes’ walk down from the house, along a pretty private lane, you’ll find the picture postcard village of Helford with its excellent village store and the famous Shipwrights Arms thatched pub, which is situated right on the river.

The Helford Sailing Club offers temporary membership and a mooring is available with the house.

With so much going on based on the river, you could be tempted not to venture too far away but this is an area with beautiful walks, delightful beaches and creeks, famous gardens to visit and the whole of the amazing Lizard Peninsula to explore.

Penarvon House is THE perfect location for that special holiday or break whatever time of year, whether it’s in winter with the open fire, the underfloor heating system and the individual thermostatic controls for each room to give you all the warmth and comfort you need, or during the summer with the fantastic water-based activities on offer.

About the location


Helston 10 miles; Lizard 11 miles; Redruth 17 miles; Falmouth 18 miles.

Helford is a picturesque village on the south side of the Helford River. Helford is very popular with its thatched cottages, excellent village stores and especially The Shipwrights Arms, right on the edge of the creek with its waterside terrace. Just a short walk away is Frenchman’s Creek, immortalised by Daphne du Maurier. The Helford River Sailing Club is very popular and a regatta is held every August. In the summer a passenger ferry runs to Helford passage, the home of the Ferryboat Inn, and nearby to the gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. The wildlife on the Helford River is diverse and a birdwatcher’s paradise.
