Helen House is one of the best rental properties I have stayed in anywhere. Add to this its superb location overlooking the town of Fowey and with 180 degree views of the river and nearby Polruan you could not ask for anything finer.Helen House is absolutely ideal for a family.We were four adults and two grandchildren and with five floors we all had our own space and never felt crowded with each other. Add to this large balconies to three of the floors with river views and patio furniture,outdoor living was possible too. Cars are well catered for with a large accessible garage integral to the property and a driveway that will take a large car too.On arrival the house was spotlessly clean,even to the standards of my wife who used to operate her own domestic cleaning company. The equipment in the house was superb,there was nothing that could possibly have been needed.From toys to Tv's and games consoles,it was all there,impressing my grand daughters no end. Helen House is situated under 10 minutes walk into town (although coming back is a steep climb) and there are many fine pubs,cafes and restaurants in Fowey. In addition there is plenty to do,including fine walks,boat trips and good class shopping. Leave the car behind and enjoy on foot.The owners of Helen House have put a lot of effort and thought into making the property a perfect holiday home and are very amenable to any questions you have of them. I cannot recommended this property highly enough and a testament is that my grand daughters were in tears having to leave.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 18 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Stayed at Helen House for a week, everything about the house was excellent, and the views from the balconies were amazing, it was clean and very well presented, our weather was not the best, but it didn't matter at all to us as we enjoyed the house so much. Would not hesitate in staying there again, and look forward to the next time, If anyone is thinking about visiting Fowey, Helen House is a must. !!

“Wonderful place to stay - highly recommended”

We were really impressed with Helen House, which is particularly spacious, well appointed and clean throughout. One of the best houses we've stayed in and we've stayed in many.

Set on six half floors, including the garage, each flight of stairs is only really a half flight so not too much. The bathrooms are modern and clean with plenty of hot water. The kitchen/diner at the top of the house is huge, good for both cooking or enjoying a takeaway. eg the local pub - the Safe Harbour near the top of the hill - does fish and chips to takeaway and also has a good menu and a quiz night. There are lots more eating/drinking places of course down the hill in the centre of Fowey.

The front of the house has tremendous views, with balconies to both bedrooms and the spacious sitting room. These front bedrooms are almost equally sized, the main difference being that one has the wardrobe and bathroom inside its door and the other has these on its landing. The back bedroom is a little smaller but still comfortable.
The garage and parking place are very useful (we took two SUVs).

One point to note is that the hill down to Fowey is very steep so this house would not suit those of limited mobility. The shortest route also has a long flight of steps but these can be easily bypassed by sticking to the road.

Helen House is a very spacious property with the most wonderful views. It is in a great location near lovely pubs and fantastic restaurants. My husband and two young daughters all enjoyed ourselves so much and were sad to leave.

“Excellent holiday home I would recommend Helen House”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A town house with amazing views. Helen House is a very comfortable, home from home. There is parking which is a plus in Fowey and a great base to explore the area. There are plenty of good restaurants to visit but the kitchen is really well equipped should you want to stay in. Excellent customer service from George who kept me fully informed, responding to any enquiry within a few hours. As the path down to Fowey harbor is quite steep it may not be suitable for those with poor mobility although there is a little bus that runs until 6 o'clock every 15 minutes or so . I would highly recommend
