Glendurgan Reach in Falmouth, Cornwall - for a short midweek or long weekend break

Welcome to Glendurgan Reach and ideal choice for your next long weekend or midweek break.

Set in lovely gardens and just a short stroll to the Helford Passage and creeks, this single-storey, wing of the owner’s home, will appeal to garden lovers, walkers and guests looking for a peaceful, tranquil setting. It adjoins National Trust Glendurgan Gardens, and lies just a short stroll from Trebah sub-tropical gardens and the banks of the Helford River. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has much to offer whatever the season. The Helford River, famous for Daphne Du Maurier’s novel ’Frenchmans Creek’, is a quiet unspoilt haven. The small waterfront hamlet of Durgan, owned by the National Trust, is like stepping back in time, where woodland meets the waters edge with a quiet small beach. Enjoy a meal and watch the marine activity nearby at the famous Ferry Boat Inn, a popular waterfront pub serving great food and local ales. A small ferry service takes passengers over to the village of Helford, with thatch cottages and a stream, a true Cornish post card setting. The small village of Mawnan Smith is within walking distance and offers a small square with a pub, tea rooms, restaurant and village store.

The lovely sandy beach at Maenporth is a great place to enjoy a cuppa at the cafe, or spend time swimming, snorkelling or walking the coastal path. There is also a restaurant with a renowned chef and stunning coastal views. Nearby is the busy port of Falmouth, with its prestigious marinas, sailing events and calendar of activities in Events Square under the watchful eye of the National Maritime Museum. Sea Shanty Week, Falmouth Week, The Oyster Festival, markets, carnivals and much more to delight everyone. Take one of the local ferry services over to St Mawes, Flushing or an evening pleasure cruise down the Helford River. Take the popular sea safari to watch marine wildlife including dolphins, basking sharks, seals and much more. Philleigh Way Cookery School offers Cornish cookery classes.

Pendennis Castle sits proudly on the headland opposite its sister castle at St Mawes. Both castles were built by Henry VI to protect the important Fal Estuary and Carrick Roads. They are run by English Heritage and host a number of events throughout the year including battle re-enactments and jousting. The area is popular for sailing, watersports, walking, golf at Budock Vean, and cycling with many trails and bike hire available locally. Miles of stunning coastal paths will lead you to quiet coves and unspoilt beaches. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
