Hove-To is a ground-floor apartment at Helford Passage, just moments away from the Ferryboat Inn and beach. It's decorated throughout in warm cream which brings out the richness of the parquet flooring and natural wood furniture. Some of the artwork has a nautical theme, and others depict the history of the area. There’s a sunny patio with river views, a large comfortable living area with wood burner, a well-equipped kitchen and three good size bedrooms.

Helford Passage nestles on the banks of the beautiful river Helford, with a sandy beach and direct access to the South West Coastal Path.  There’s plenty to do on site including hire of kayaks or paddle boards to get you out on the water, or if you prefer, try the heated outdoor swimming pool.  The Ferryboat Inn specialises in seafood dishes and holds regular music and quiz nights. The local ferry can take you across to pretty Helford village where you can meander along the shore to explore Daphne Du Maurier’s Frenchman’s Creek.  Alternatively relax and enjoy good food at the welcoming Shipwrights Arms in Helford or venture further afield to historic and bustling Falmouth, experience rugged Land’s End or the gentle gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan. All the traditional attractions of a Cornish Holiday such as nearby fishing trips, golf, cycling, horse-riding, seaside fish and chips, coastal walks, art galleries and stunning beaches make this a perfect base for couples or family’s all year round.

Door to living room with wooden parquet flooring and granite fireplace. There's a Smart TV, so bring along your Netflix details and log on. Seating area with two sofas and armchair, Smart TV, and wood burner fire. Dining area with seating for 6.

3rd November 2017 - This is our favorite place for a holiday. Hove too is perfectly positioned to enjoy the stunning views across the Helford River. It was clean, well equipped, spacious and comfortable. Another lovely holiday.

February 2019

13th October 2017 - We have just enjoyed our 13th stay in this wonderful apartment. An idyllic location near to the water front and just round the corner from the famous Ferry Boat Inn (which does amazing food). The apartment is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and is fitted out to a very high standard. Our family love joining us for the first weekend and the grandchildren can't wait to go rock pooling. We look forward to returning again soon.
