In the heart of the Cornish countryside, this property has been lovingly fitted and furnished in a contemporary style and is perfectly placed for touring.

Nestled amongst the Cornish countryside on the banks of the River Fowey, this wonderful detached property is the ideal rural retreat for friends/families. It’s perfectly positioned for guests wishing to explore both coastlines as well as offering woodland walks on your doorstep and rugged Bodmin Moor (7 miles) to the north. Other activities are also on offer locally, such as surfing and cycling. Despite its tranquil and secluded position, guests will be pleased to know there’s a pub within a few hundred metres.

This property has been immaculately decorated in a fresh, contemporary style; cool tones blend beautifully with oak furniture and the occasional pop of colour to create a bright and airy space for guests to relax in. From the terrace, you enter the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which feels light and spacious. Although modest, the kitchen is well-equipped with everything you’ll need. Leading off the living area are two beautifully presented bedrooms: one double and one twin. The double has an en-suite shower room and there is also a bathroom with a shower over the bath. Outside, the enclosed garden has a lawn and terrace, which is great for al fresco dining with a view.

On the south coast, the South West Coast Path connects the picturesque fishing towns/villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey (all within 14.5 miles), which all boast a range of independent shops, eateries and galleries. The north coast has yet more stunning places to visit such as Port Isaac (19 miles), Padstow and Tintagel (within 30 miles) or popular surfers’ resort, Newquay (25 miles). Both coasts are also home to gorgeous sandy beaches and hidden coves. For something different, head to the Eden Project (12 miles).

  • 2 bedrooms - 1 double and 1 twin bedroom

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.
