"Helvellyn Establishment : About Us

Helvellyn – the highest mountain in the Lake District, England, with fantastic 360-degree views on a clear day.

Helvellyn House – an old traditional family home & gardens built in 1939, situated at the very Northern tip of Grenada with spectacular 360-degree views on any day!

Helvellyn, an established name in Grenada with Grenadian roots.

It all started with the amalgamation of the two families Ferguson (planters) and Gleans (engineers). In 1941 Alister Glean married Phyllis Ferguson and built a beautiful home for her in la Fortune, Levera, St. Patrick’s. The view reminded Phyllis of the mountain she climbed when she lived in England – Helvellyn. This is where they lived happily ever after.

Alister Glean created the company Gleans Garage of which the main branch was situated in Sauteurs, and a second branch in St. George's. He was one of the first persons to bring BMC trucks into the island.

Two generations later granddaughter, Karen Hooper, with Moroccan Husband, Badre Maaroufi, have added new flavour to Helvellyn.

We arrived in Grenada in 1998 with the idea to open Helvellyn House as a lunch stop for the public and to show off one of the prettiest settings on the island.
Here everything is freshly made. The menu depends on what is available from the market or garden. Everything is cooked with a local flavour.

Contracts have been established Tour operators, cruise ships, as well as catering for weddings and other ceremonies.

We are bilingual English/French.

In 2000, Helvellyn Tours was created to promote French tourism in Grenada and the Creole Bus (BMC trucks) tour was born!
We started with French cruise ship contracts and now work with a multitude of companies of all nationalities.

In 2002 we took over Carib Cats Catamaran Cruises which today is one of the major day chartering businesses on the island.

And our adventures continue…

We boast an efficient and professional team with a friendly down to earth attitude.
