Frenchman’s Creek is a peaceful and stunning inlet off the Helford River, which offers a rich array of sights from the kayak.

Your adventure starts from Budock Vean Hotel private beach, from where you Guide will lead you towards the Helford Passage, passing sailing boats and banks of ancient oak forest. Paddling across the The Helford you enter Frenchman’s Creek, the inspiration for Daphne du Marier’s novel ‘Frenchman’s Creek’. The serene surroundings on calm waters are amazing with shipwrecks and secluded beaches situated on the creek.
