October 2020

The accommodation is small but well equipped, ideal for two. The upstairs twin bedroom is up a very steep spiral staircase so not suitable for anyone with mobility issues, ideal for children. The view is wonderful and we loved being able to order takeaway food from the Ferry Boat Inn and collect it within minutes. This is a great centre for visiting local gardens. We had an initial issue which Aspects dealt with extremely well.

Small apartment ideal for a couple. Beware of spiral staircase if using upper floor as it is very steep. Location lovely very quiet. Not so good if you have any walking difficulties as everywhere is very steep.

This is a lovely apartment, very clean and comfortable. Good location and the views of the river are great.

Had a wonderful relaxing stay at 3 The Boat House. Apartment was comfortable and light with a lovely view of the river. Food at the pub was excellent. Accessible for a number of interesting places - we walked the South West Coast Path to Falmouth and caught the bus back ! Highly recommended.

Aug 2020

We enjoyed our stay at 3 the boat house. The view from the living room window of the Helford river was lovely. The property is quite small but functional.

Aug 2020

Gorgeous location, stunning views, very small but well equipped flat with the fantastic bonus of a swimming pool, and only a stones throw away from the harbours edge with a fantastic pub to hand.
