Property With Jetty

I am trying to track down a property to rent for a week, with facilities for 2 adults and 4 teenagers, with its own jetty, or pontoon or similiar.

I would like to be able to moor my 6m RIB alongside, without the hassle of launching every day. My wife likes ribbing, but she doesn't like tenders!

I have in mind somewhere near to an sizeable area of water that we can explore over a week, like the Helford river etc.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Why not just find accommodation anywhere near mylor or falmouth - plenty of visitors berths in the marinas on carrick roads - and I'm sure you will be able to find a place to rent within a very short cars journey from one of them.

Helford river is not all that sizable in my opinion. Ive been over there from falmouth a few times and unless its absolute high tide you cant get very far in land anyway (about 2.5 miles) . Much better off in the Fal estuary which is loads bigger.

Small Slip right outside,owner maybe able to organise a berth on a pontoon ,but it does dry so access only at high water,also parking will cost extra,once again contact owner for more info,I have stayed there in the past and the road down to it is pretty narrow.

Salcombe's an excellent spot to holiday with a boat but the estuary drys considerably and as far as I know there is no accomodation with all tides access.

You can rent a mooring and use the water taxi (make sure you ask for a deep water mooring (more expensive), the rest are semi drying). We stayed in a riverside cottage up the estuary - my intention was to putt down in my tender - but even that was too difficult with the tides so landed up parking in the town. You can pick up passengers from the main pontoon of course.

Well worth the experience IMO.

Holiday cottages

Depends how far you want to go but we saw a couple of cottages on the Isle of Cumbrae last August when we were at the Topper Nats. They were fronting directly onto the Largs channel with jetties and opposite Largs Marina (also a nice deep mooring) The scenery is spectacular with many islands and the Firth of Clyde to explore. Some of the organisers also came over in their own ribs from Cumbrae where they lived in the little Town (which name I forget) In the nice weather we had it was fabulous. Shame the wind was so light we had trouble with the sailing bit!
Also there are a number of rental cottages on Poole Harbour and several on the islands in the Harbour but you'll need to trawl the Poole letting agents to find them.

** Kids in Toppers? ... Like herding Cats!.. But HARDER!!** :-))

There is always near Oban. First rate accomodation and a small private harbour and slip. Great cruising on you doorstep.
