Smart. The men used to be required to wear a tie, but that is no longer insisted upon, however a jacket is expected and the ladies are expected to match the gentlemen!!

Hi, Grebe Beach, also known as Durgan Beach, is about a mile from the hotel along the coast path. There is a sandy beach at low tide outside the Ferryboat Inn at Helford Passage plus there is lovely beach at the bottom of Trebah Garden which is perfect for adults and children alike. The hotel has private foreshore access to the Helford River but it's tidal and not sandy. Mark H's answer above is also correct that Maenporth Beach is 3 miles away and the beaches in Falmouth such as Swanpool, Gyllyngvase and Castle Beach are all about 20 minutes by car. We hope you are able to come and stay with us.

Hi. Depending on how fit and active you are - then it's a 5 minute walk to the foreshore, maybe 10 on the way back up the hill! Swimming and golf are free when staying in the hotel. Nicky, Marketing Manager.

Hi Louise, Thank you for your question. Room 61 is a beautiful Signature bedroom which was refurbished in July 2014. It is on the third floor and has stunning views across the middle of the golf course. If you would like to call our Reception on 01326 250288 then we can send you some photographs. Many thanks Melanie

"Don't know what you mean by this!"
"I wouldn't recommend room 49 or any on that floor as they are above the golf clubs bar"
"Rooms overlooking the valley down to the river or golf course are lovely!"
"Double check"
"Tell them what you need and they will advise - my father needs a walk in shower, which effectively decided his room."
