It is the little things that make a house a home. Attention to detail, care for your holiday plans and dreams, an easy, friendly warmth. Bishops Quay, on the Helford River, here in Cornwall, has been most favourably featured in Coast, Country Living and Cornwall Life magazines. This lovely old property, inspected by Sawday’s, also Holiday Lettings, has twelve 5* reviews on TripAdvisor. A much loved holiday home for a quarter of a century.
The usefully flexible accommodation can suit differently sized groups – from a quiet couple to a party of up to six adults and two small children. Dogs are welcome at Bishops Quay; they are able to exercise along the lane and often enjoy outings in the boats. Prices shown are for the three bedroomed house, with a chance to book the large extra bedroom suite if required, which increases the rental by one third. There can be up to two bathrooms and three loos. The house now has Lightspeed fibre broadband, and a new Samsung Smart TV with iplayer etc built in.
A small fleet of boats are offered, a motor bass boat, a sailing dinghy, a wooden rowing boat and several sit on kayaks, canoes. Buoyancy aids are provided for use when exploring the river.
The atmosphere is characterful, spacious, private, 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 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.
