Gillan Creek is an idyllic and sheltered tidal inlet on the southern side of the Helford River, home to only a handful of exclusive properties that rarely hit the market, in an area renowned for its picturesque unspoilt scenery and quiet foreshore on the fine sailing waters at the mouth of the Helford River.
Gillan Cove and the small hamlet of St Anthony have facilities for both deep water and tidal moorings whilst nearby Flushing Cove is a tranquil shingle beach.
Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Helford River and surrounding countryside have been immortalised by Daphne du Maurier in her novel 'Frenchman's Creek'. The area remains a firm favourite for its marine activities with deep water moorings on the main river and a local sailing club at Helford Village. The surrounding tidal creeks including Gillan Creek are a particular joy for exploring or simply 'messing about in boats'.
Approximately two miles distant is the traditional village of Manaccan, which offers an infant/junior school, church and the 'New Inn' pub. Within approximately eleven miles is the town of Helston where there is a comprehensive range of amenities.THE PROPERTY
