Helford Passage and the Helford River are wonderful places to stay for a holiday in the Falmouth area of Cornwall. See the Cornish Holiday Cottages website for accommodation options here and nearby. This ferry has been operating since the Middle Ages, so it definitely is not one for you to miss! It goes back and forth between Helford Village and Helford Passage and is actually a smaller ferry compared to others. The ferry itself brings visitors to National Trust gardens that are among the best in the world and allow them to enjoy the tranquil waters of the Frenchman’s Creek, which Daphne du Maurier immortalized.
