Shearwater

Shearwater holds a special place in the hearts of us all here at Cornish Holiday Cottages as it was the holiday home of choice, of our founder Mrs Ruth Austen. And what good taste she had.

Situated just a few feet from Port Navas creek and with its own mooring, Shearwater offers the perfect opportunity for exploring the Helford River by boat. Rowing boats, small sailing dinghies, kayaks and motor cruisers can be hired locally. There is nothing quite like seeing the area from the water, enjoying a picnic on Tremayne Quay at sundown or dropping into a waterside pub for a pint of ale and some fresh seafood.

For the less adventurous, you are sure to enjoy whiling away some happy moments relaxing on the bench outside the cottage, soaking up the views and the peace and tranquility of the area.

Internally Shearwater is your typical cute Cornish cottage, with all the mod-cons to make your stay comfortable and just the retreat that it should be.


In winter, the instant electric wall heaters in the sitting room, night store heaters elsewhere plus heated towel rail in the bathroom will keep you warm and toasty. Bring your walking boots and enjoy the beautiful meandering creeks by day.

We had a wonderful stay at Shearwater, and we were both sorry to leave. I have to admit that I greatly miss the glorious views from the front windows, and feeding the swans when the tide comes in.
