Local Area

The stretch of beautiful, unspoilt countryside between the bustling market town of Lostwithiel and the harbour town of Fowey is the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday.  It is bordered by the stunning river Fowey which provides opportunities for kayaking, sailing and messing around on the water, as well as miles of walking trails and beautiful views.  Only a 20 minute drive takes you to the port of Charlestown with tall ships lining the harbour.  You may recognise the little village from the many productions it has featured in including Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and, more recently, the BBC's Poldark series.  The world renowned Eden Project is just a 10 minute drive and the area is well served by some lovely sandy beaches.  The little cove at Fowey is popular with locals and visitors alike and the beach at Polkerris is a fantastic spot for families with a sheltered bay and ample opportunities for watersports with equipment hire and tuition available.


Excellent booking experience on the website and first class communication as the holiday time approached. The property was just as described and was beautifully appointed. The huge outside spaces were lovely and the place was so peaceful it was a delight to stay there. Highly recommend property and the service was great too.Mr William Morris - 3rd September 2018
