  This one-time tin mining port is superbly situated on the Helford River and has its own ferry service.

Thanks to its small and intimate harbour, it is a popular place for yachters and has been described as the loveliest village on the Cornish coast.
A short walk takes the visitor to idyllic Frenchman’s Pill’, or cove, the setting of Daphne Du Maurier’s world-famous novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’.
