Local Area

Mixtow is a tiny hamlet overlooking the river and the town of Fowey.  It is a peaceful rural retreat tucked away in the countryside - a true Cornish getaway!  Its tranquil setting offers beautiful countryside views, and means you can switch off your phone and put away your laptop, and just unwind in a quiet little hamlet by the sea.

Close by is The Old Ferry Inn, a pub dating back to the 17th century, with good food and a hearty welcome - just the thing after a bracing walk. 

There are some lovely walks to discover, through fields and lanes, and along the riverside and down to quiet little coves with boats drawn up on the shoreline.

If you do fancy something a little more active, Polruan is nearby, and Fowey is just across the river - there is a car ferry from Bodinnick, and a passenger ferry from Polruan.


The property generally was superb!G Bradshaw - 8th October 2018
Picturesque area, off the beaten track and very relaxing. Food at the nearest pub restaurant (Bodinnick) was exceptional. Holiday property was acceptable for the price paid, the garden was charming and we enjoyed the variety of visitors to the bird table.Mrs Janet Hall - 17th September 2018
If you value peace and privacy in a beautiful location this is wonderful place to stay, and you could not wish to meet nicer and more helpful people than the owners. Mr Kevin Newbery - 6th August 2018
Very pleasant property, in a very tidal location so launching and retrieving a boat is challenging. TV reception not brilliant but am unsure whether this is the equipment or the location.Mr J Welch - 21st August 2017
Little Merrifield was perfect for the escape from the rat-race we wanted! Luckily it was combined with some excellent weather so apart from breakfast we were in fact not in our accommodation much during the day. However, it was lovely to enjoy their beautiful garden, immediate surroundings and the owners were approachable & chatty. The accommodation had everything anyone should require & plenty of space despite being only 'sleeps two'. Mr SIMON MASKELL - 26th June 2017
Our first booking through Cornish Horizons. The website was easy to navigate, the property well described and the booking process simple. Paperwork was emailed quickly and the whole process was efficient.Jackie Dixon - 24th May 2017
Very friendly owners. Good sized rooms. Lovely terraced garden. Mr S Lee - 8th March 2017
