About the neighbourhood
The sleepy riverside village of Gweek is set among the extensive woods of the Helford, and is a good spot to start exploring the area whether by land or water. The National Seal Sanctuary, complete with nursery pools and hospital is in the heart of the village. With easy access to nearby attractions and beaches, Gweek is a popular destination for those visiting Cornwall. Deep sheltered valleys covered in ancient oak woodland, lead down to hidden creeks, centuries old villages, and Cornwall gardens, such as Trebah and Glendurgan both on the north shore of the Helford, in South West Cornwall full of sub-tropical plants, tree ferns originally from New Zealand, rhododendrons and azaleas. Beautiful villages like Durgan, preserved by the National Trust, or the more well known Helford Passa...
How to get there
If you are travelling by road from anywhere outside of Devon and heading to the west of Cornwall, the most direct route is likely to include the M5 and then the A30. The cottage is 5 minutes drive from Helston. Air travel to Newquay from Stansted, Gatwick, Leeds, Bradford, Bristol and Dublin (90 minutes drive). Travel by train to Redruth, then onwards by bus or taxi (45 minutes drive). Please contact the owner for further details.
