This romantic little wooden cabin perches amongst trees on a low bluff above Penarvon Cove, on the outskirts of Helford village. Below you, the waters of the Helford lap at the shore and birds feed on the incoming tide, close by are the popular pub and post office in the village and the ferry to the northern bank. A circular walk behind the cabin leads through woodland and past the commemorative chapel of St Francis on the water's edge.
