Hidden valleys, secret spots and dramatic history
Helford River and Frenchman's Creek
With wooded valleys aplenty the east coast of The Lizard is home to the Helford River and Frenchman's Creek, made famous by author Daphne Du Maurier. Frenchman's Creek isn't that easily found but once you've discovered it you'll want to come back again and again. In the sunshine the views over the river across to Port Navas and up towards Tremayne Quay have kept everyone from queens of England to queens of pop coming back for centuries.
