Polwheveral is a beautiful quiet wooded creek on the north side of the Helford. It’s home year-round to herons and scores of little egrets as well as migrating curlews and oystercatchers. Scott’s Quay, where Polwheveral and Polpenwith creeks divide, was built in the early 1800s to load granite from the quarries above Constantine.
The original much larger quay deteriorated and was replaced by the present quay in 1932 mainly to encourage public access to river. A footpath leads down the hill from Doctor’s Lane in Constantine via Goongillings and has been extended with a permissive walk along the creekside and back through Scott’s Wood.
Trengilly Wartha is a traditional Inn, run by Will and Lisa Lee, situated in a sheltered valley close to the Helford River.
Trengilly offers excellent food (produced using local ingredients) and a friendly bar with a comfortable accommodation.
You can stay at Goongillings Farm up above Scott's Quay. The five cottages are available year round, dogs are welcome and there's an award winning pub within walking distance.
