This "picture post card village" offers a shop with post office and the famous Shipwrights Arms public house.

There is a popular sailing club within the village, and deep water moorings can be obtained (subject to availability).
A passenger ferry links the north and south banks of the river, crossing over the Helford passage, from here the magnificent gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan can be explored as well as the pretty beaches of Durgan & Grebe.
