WELCOME TO BISHOPS QUAY
Bishops Quay, on the Helford River, in Cornwall, is a flexible holiday house that can comfortably sleep six adults and two children, or, just as happily, a couple, as are many of our guests. Bishops Quay is fully dog friendly, they can have a great time walking in the river meadows, along the private lane.
With waterfront balconies, a pretty, private, creek side garden, wonderful panoramic river views from every room, this historic, quirky quayside cottage/house is unique, individual and idyllic. A motor bass boat, a rowing boat and a sailing dinghy are provided for your use, also kayaks and canoes, buoyancy aids too. Watching the river birds is always fascinating, as is the coming and going of the tide.
Right on the riverfront, with up to three loos, two bathrooms and a cloakroom, a dining table that seats a houseful, a Smart TV, Superfast Broadband and many other little things that make a house a home, this has been a much loved, enjoyed and returned to retreat for over a quarter of a century. Prices will reflect numbers in your party; so do contact us with your plans. We are open to discussion over rental rates when the dates are very near.
Bishops Quay, has been most favourably featured in Coast, Country Living and Cornwall Life magazines. This unique and characterful property has been visited and approved by Sawday’s and Holiday Lettings.
Bishops Quay is spacious, private, and quiet. Logs, dry, from our land, are provided for the open fire, as many as you need, all year around. Balconies and a pretty waterside garden are for warm days and the long, sunny, late evenings. All set 1/4 mile away from the road, down a private track, with only river traffic and wildlife to catch your eye.

We were lucky to have our daughter and family with us on an exceptionally sunny April week. Week 2 reverted to norm. Trebah’s rhododendrons were a blaze of colour. Several local pub restaurants are on top form (Black Swan Gweek/Trengilly Wartha/Halzephron) Thank you Kate and Ben for all your kindnesses
