    Local information

    • Alta is situated in an elevated position between Constantine and Port Navas on the north side of the Helford River. Constantine is a busy village with a well-regarded primary school, a popular store/delicatessen with a nationally renowned range of fine wines and spirits, doctors' surgery, a local shop and Post Office, pub, performing arts venue and a beautiful church which dates back to 1420. Port Navas is centred around a handful of stone cottages at the head of the creek, with the Yacht Club with bar and excellent restaurant being the focal point and, together with the oyster house quay, the hub of the annual Port Navas Regatta. Less than a mile away is the Potager Garden and Café which has an excellent reputation and strong local following. Alta is also just a 10 minute drive to the beaches of Maenporth, Swanpool and Gyllyngvase which are dog-friendly part of the year.
    • The Helford River is one of the most beautiful, historic and unspoilt rivers in Cornwall, with its deep valleys, ancient oak forests and hidden creeks that cut inland along this sheltered part of the south Cornwall coast. It was renowned as a haven for pirates and inspired many writers, famously Daphne du Maurier with her Frenchman's Creek novel. There are many small quays and secluded coves on the river to visit by boat, while a pedestrian ferry links the north and south banks. The area offers safe swimming and sailing facilities and a wonderful natural harbour from which to explore the south Cornish coast, much of which is owned and protected by the National Trust. As well as having fine coastal walks and creek paths, the area also has a mild climate suited to many sub-tropical plants, as the famous gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah illustrate so well. For the golfer the clubs at Budock Vean, Falmouth and Mullion are less than half an hour's drive away.
    • The vibrant university town of Falmouth, with its beaches, yacht marinas, National Maritime Museum, varied restaurants and The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is just eight miles away and has a variety of primary and secondary schools. The cathedral city of Truro is approximately 12.5 miles away and provides an excellent range of shopping and schooling facilities together with a mainline rail link to London Paddington. Cornwall Airport (Newquay) provides daily return flights to London along with other domestic and international destinations.
