... a mile from Port Navas is Calamansack, a hamlet of cottages down a
private lane beside the broad Helford River, looking over it and
Frenchmanâs Creek to wooded hillsides and fields. Lots of birds (swans,
curlews, buzzards, herons and egrets), animals (foxes, badgers).
Constantine, 3Â½ miles. We let two cottages here, sharing two inshore
moorings and one offshore mooring. An infinitely peaceful scene,
excellent for birdwatchers.
... Creek Cottage is semi-detached, in a wonderful position with
uninterrupted views. Paved courtyard (picnic table, barbecue, flowers,
herbs); steep steps up to tiny 'hideaway' garden with seat
(river/boating views). In front, a lane leads to the shore with quiet,
sheltered picnic spots beneath trees, and a slipway where small boats
can be launched. The cottage has been enlarged and updated. Living room
with inglenook (woodburner), beams, TV/DVD, light with two windows
(wonderful river views to Frenchman's Creek). Kitchen/dining room
