The Foreshore

Port Navas

Sleeps up to 8. No dogs.

The Foreshore, Port NavasDuring the 16th and 17th centuries, the Helford River had a rather insalubrious reputation when it came to law enforcement and the authorities. In fact, such was its association with pirates that it came to be known as “Stealford”. As Richard Carew wrote in his Survey of Cornwall during the Elizabethan period: “at unfortified Hailford [pirates] cannot be controlled”.

Take in the glorious views from this impressive self catering property and you will soon understand why - Port Navas is, after all, of its many hideaway creeks from which it was possible to operate unhindered until development during the latter half of the 19th century.

Of course, things are more serene these days, and The Foreshore is in about as serene a spot as you’ll find anywhere in Cornwall. Set amid a large landscaped garden with access to the foreshore, this is a place for relaxation and enjoying the finer things in life - sit outside on a warm summer evening when the tide is rising and you will be unlikely to want to be anywhere else.

The property itself is ideal for larger families and can accommodate up to 8 people through four bedrooms (2 doubles and 2 twins). Free temporary membership of Port Navas yacht club is available for guests, while there are other dining options at Mawnan Smith, Constantine and Helford Passage.
