Stunning waterside property with uninterrupted river views and it's own private sauna, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this truly is the perfect holiday retreat whatever the time of year.

Moored on the bank of the River Tiddy, this picturesque cottage for two offers peace and tranquillity surrounded by spectacular views. Start the day admiring the mighty viaduct then set off to explore the remarkable Cornish countryside and coastline. Return to unwind in the sauna, pour a glass of wine and enjoy an al fresco meal, whiling away the hours spotting the wildlife pottering on the water. On cooler evenings, curl up on the sofa in front of the warming wood burner.

Wake up to the birds welcoming the morning as you sit at the breakfast bar, sipping a coffee and watching the ever-changing tidal river. You are never far from the water here, with front-facing views from the bedroom and living room overlooking the river. Enjoy walks from your doorstep and then return to the welcome reward of the sauna. Soothing tones of blue and cream create a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere, fresh on warm summer days yet cosy when the flickering wood burner is lit to warm your toes as you cuddle on the sofa, the perfect complement to a chilly autumn evening.

The historic village of St. Germans is steeped in history and has two traditional pubs, a community shop and train station. Venture further afield and explore the remarkable South Coast and Whitsand Bay (4.5 miles), offering 4 miles of golden sands accessed via a steep cliff path. Travel the South West Coast Path which runs along the cliffs to Port Wrinkle (4.5 miles), Downderry (5 miles), Looe (9 miles) and Polperro (13.5 miles). Visit the houses, gardens and woodlands at Antony House (8 miles), Cotehele (13.5 miles) and Saltram (16 miles).

The owners of the cottage have decorated to a very good standard and it is well equipped. It is in a stunning and tranquil location with the tidal river just outside your door.

We stayed at this small cottage at the end of April when self catering accomodation was allowed and shops were open but pubs/restaurants could only serve outside and museums (except gardens were shut). We had a fantastic time. The property was compact, had a v comfortable bed - very warm and cozy and although nights were chilly the central heating Read morewas more than adequate and there was no need for the additional log fire to keep warm.

Yes we would when the squirrel (?) problem is resolved and if the light bulbs were up graded. You would probably need a washing machine if you stayed longer than a week.

Cosy, warm and clean cottage, in a wonderful location, at the end of a private road/path. Welcome pack of scones, jam, cream and milk provided. Very quiet and peaceful, the only noise was from an occasional train travelling slowly over the nearby viaduct, which could be seen even when lying in bed!

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.
