Smuggler's Cottage is a beautiful thatched cottage and small tea rooms dating from the 15th century. Set in beautiful surroundings on the river's tranquil eastern bank, visitors to the area should search it out and spend some time there. Take time out to relax while soaking in the atmosphere and learning a little about the history of the area. There is also an excellent 3 hour scenic walk along the Oyster Way from Tolverne to St. Mawes worth trying out. The shingle beaches at Tolverne and Turnaware Point were used, along with the beach at Trebah Gardens, overlooking the Helford, as embarkation points for Allied troops taking part in the D-Day Landings in 1944.
