Mawnan Smith is located just a few miles from Falmouth and is an ideal location for those who enjoy coastal and country walks.  The village offers a good range of local facilities, including a junior school, and is ideally placed for the beautiful Glendurgan and Trebah gardens.  Properties in Mawnan are a mix of traditional Cornish cottages and more modern development, with a picturesque thatched pub located in the heart of the village.


Helford Passage is situated very close to Mawnan Smith, Helford River being renowned for its stunning scenery and sailing waters.  A haven for holidaymakers, the hamlet comprises traditional cottages together with more modern holiday accommodation and is a perfect location for those seeking a second home or investment opportunity.  The 16th Century Ferryboat Inn fronts the river, serving the catch of the local fishermen.  Helford River is, of course, renowned for its association with Daphne Du Maurier and Frenchman’s Creek.
