Perfectly situated on the banks of the River Fowey, this charming property is surrounded by some of Cornwall’s most picturesque fishing villages and walking trails. Perfect for families or groups of friends seeking a Cornish getaway, discover the region on foot or by boat, before returning for an evening tipple on the scenic, waterside terrace that awaits. The coastal village of Polruan is a short drive away, with a passenger ferry linking the two. Slightly further afield, days out include trips to Looe (11 miles) and Polperro (7 miles) to the east, and Mevagissey (22 miles) to the west. Pretty Lostwithiel (9 miles) is also well worth a visit, where you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to boutique shops and antiques emporiums. Walkers will be in their element due to direct access onto a public footpath and the South West Coast Path nearby. Other attractions accessible from here include the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown, and numerous National Trust properties, all within 22 miles.

 Stepping inside this stunning property, you will find yourself in a spacious entrance hall with reception rooms on either side. Firstly, and to the right, the accommodation opens into an impressive period sitting room boasting comfortable sofas, a TV, wood burner and French doors to the terrace. On the other side of the hall is the beautifully presented kitchen/diner, a sociable space that also boasts French doors to let that fresh Cornish air in, providing the perfect venue for a relaxed family meal. The kitchen itself is also perfectly appointed for cooking a wonderful meal or packed lunch for the day ahead. Venturing up the stairs to the first floor, find the beautiful bedrooms, the first of which is a spacious king-size bedroom with lovely views across the water and an en-suite bathroom featuring a roll-top bath. A further king-size bedroom, also boasting beautiful water views, has an en-suite shower room. Finally, two delightful twin bedrooms complete the sleeping arrangements, served by the well-appointed family bathroom.

Outside, immerse yourselves in total tranquillity as you sit out on the private terrace using the outdoor furniture provided. Here, you can marvel at the views of the river, waving to passing boats, while soaking in the sun – it’s also the perfect spot for a morning coffee or evening tipple.
