Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Helford River is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt rivers in Cornwall and has inspired many writers and artists, with its deep sheltered valleys, ancient oak forests and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the South Cornwall coast.

Peacefully set, down a long private drive, away from roads, right on the riverbank and with only two near neighbours, here at Bishops Quay you can measure time by the tides. Stately herons patrol the channel, kingfishers dart from the jetty to the riverbank. The constant, haunting cry of the curlew is the backing track to the day. The startlingly white egrets form groups of tree decorations, distributing themselves tidily on the branches of the oaks that fringe the sides of Mawgan Creek and the Helford River. Whereas many views are breathtakingly beautiful to look at, this is the kind you actually inhabit. The water is your garden, a few steps to board your boats, nothing to interrupt your being at one with the estuary.

The centuries old quay, lime kiln and barn from which the dwellings have gradually evolved give Bishops Quay a captivating romantic history that slowly and generously gives up its secrets. The buildings are currently arranged as two dwellings, Bishops Quay having four bedrooms and the Kiln itself currently the owners accommodation with three bedrooms. There is an internal staircase linking the two houses, so they could be used as one large (some 4,000 sq. ft) home if required or preferred.
