A truly special house, set above the Helford estuary, close to the village of Helford and can sleep twelve people in four bedrooms.

Penarvon House is a truly special house, set above the Helford estuary, close to the village of Helford and can sleep 12 people. There are three double bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms), a twin bedroom, a bathroom, an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with an open fire. There is also a utility room and a games room with additional pull-out beds and a snooker table. Outside there is off road parking for six cars and a gravelled garden and lawned areas with terraces, barbecue and furniture. Penarvon House is a wonderful holiday base.


The house was as described; luxurious and excellent in every respect. The availability of wood for the fire was appreciated as was the WiFi.
Mr Smith

The rooms were nice and big, very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Even with 8 of us there, we didn't feel crowded. The views and gardens were superb. A splendid property and we would love to return.
Mrs Smith

The house was full of beautiful and amazing spaces, perfect for our family gathering. The view over the estuary was so relaxing.
Mrs Morgan

What a treat to be able to spend a few days at this wonderful large house! The owners have taken so much trouble to make it comfortable and homely. It is the perfect spot for relaxing in front of the wood fire on a winter's evening, and I am sure that in the summertime, the garden provides a lovely place to sit out for a meal, while children can play on the large lawn. The directions given to us were easy to follow, and the location is fantastic, with far-reaching views and a large well-kept garden. There is so much to do in the area. Walks can start directly from the house, so you don't need to use the car. The village shop is a short walk down the hill, not 5 minutes away, where there is also a good pub. I would recommend this house as a holiday destination for any group - an extended family or a group of friends. Thank you so much for letting us share your secret!
