Helford Passage

Up the creek

From its wide mouth to the muddy creeks upstream, the Helford is loved by all who know it. Sailors take shelter in the entrance, moor up and have a run ashore to one of the waterside pubs.

On the northside of the estuary, close to Helford Passage, are the adjacent gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. Both offer valleys full of sub-tropical plants dipping down to the water’s edge.

The main areas of settlement alongside the river are Gweek, Port Navas, Helford village, Helford Passage and Durgan. Helford and Helford Passage are linked by a passenger ferry that has existed for over 300 years. Both villages have popular pubs with views of the water where you can wait for the ferry to arrive.

Most communities have a selection of self catering properties to rent.
