Location: Helford The Lizard

SAILING Gillan Creek is situated right next to the Helford River which is famous for its unspoilt and protected sailing waters. It is possible to bring your own sailing dinghies to the Boathouse and to launch and store them on the beach or in the garden. Alternatively you may hire a wide range of boats from Sailaway at St Anthony which is situated minutes away. Moorings for larger boats are also available in the Cove right outside the house from Sailaway. Please note that the Boathouse beach always has water and is not muddy! It does not dry out as we are not far enough up the creek for this to happen.

WALKING The Cornish Coastal path passes right by the Boathouse and there are stunning Cliffside and riverside walks directly from the house. At low tide one may cross Gillan Creek and walk to Helford. A short drive from the house takes you to Daphne du Maurier's famous "Frenchman's Creek" which is another lovely walk as is the walk to Tremayne Quay which is in the same vicinity. There are also woodland walks on the nearby 1000 acre Trelowarren Estate.

GARDENS The Lizard is well known for its many and beautiful gardens and within easy reach of the Boathouse are the following gardens; Trebah, Glendurgan, Trelissick, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project (just over an hour by car).

SIGHTSEEING There are many and varied things to see and do around the Boathouse from art in the Tate at St Ives to walking with camels at Goonhilly! There is Land's End to see as well as the new Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the Goonhilly Satellite tracking station, going down an old tin mine or a trip to the Duchy Oyster Farm in Porth Navas Creek, visiting the Seal sanctuary or having a day out at Flambards! There are also fabulous surfing beaches in St Ives Bay (40 mins drive). There are plenty of lovely pubs and restaurants too!
