This delightful property forms part of a spectacular Georgian residence, boasts beautiful water views, and has been purpose fitted and furnished to provide a comfortable Cornish retreat.

Relax by the river and enjoy the ever-changing views from this self-contained wing of a delightful Georgian residence. With a terrace and French doors leading to the patio and garden furniture, this property makes the most of its riverside location allowing for al fresco dining morning, noon and night, watching the boats bob up and down. Sweeping views coupled with light and spacious interiors makes for a relaxing retreat from the bustle of everyday life.

Open the French doors and let the outside flood into the stylish open-plan living space. It's bright and airy during the day, but once the wood burner is lit it becomes cosy and welcoming – the perfect spot after an eventful day. Calming tones of the palest peach and blue compliment the stunning original features and allows the light to move through the property with ease. The purpose fitted furnishings create a friendly and homely atmosphere, designed for relaxation. Picture-postcard views from the bedroom window means waking up from a restful night's sleep is a pleasure, and an early morning coffee on the terrace makes for the perfect holiday morning.

With direct access onto a public footpath, and with the South West Coast Path and all its beaches, coves and mesmerising views nearby, walkers will be spoilt for choice. For a challenging stroll, visit St Catherine's Castle (3.5 miles) perched above the sea, then head to the lovely, secluded Readymoney Cove below. Further afield, enjoy trips to the seaside harbour towns of Charlestown (15 miles) and Mevagissey (22.5 miles), and the 18th-Century Antony House, set within a magnificent landscape garden (24.5 miles).

The position of the property is amazing, very peaceful, could have spent all day just boat and bird watching. Quiet public footpath in front of cottage was a lovely short walk along one side of the creek, crossing over to fields on the other side. Good coast path walking (some very steep!). Interesting boat trip to Mevagissy from Fowey approx. 35 mRead moreinutes, small but well stocked museum there which is free. Very relaxing week. Hide

Its an absolute idol. A great break away from our very busy lifes. We loved cooking in at night and the kitchen was well equipped for this. But the best bit was the terrace and the views. Ever changing and the bird like was amazing.

Fantastic river views from comfortable property. Bathroom has opaque glass door ..& overlooked clear glass window. Only access is by single track overgrown hazardous lane for +1 mile. No privacy from other guests- house divided into 4. 5 each way on Fowey car ferry.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
