This lovely waterside house is in a south-facing position in Mixtow Pill which is about half a mile upstream from Bodinnick village, on the east bank of the River Fowey. Ideal for boating enthusiasts, the house has its own pontoon and many guests bring or hire a small boat at Fowey River Boat Hire during their holiday. The nearest place to eat is The Old Ferry Inn at Bodinnick, where you can also catch the ferry across to Fowey with its many independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The beautiful coves of Lantic and Lansallos Bays are around 2 miles away where there are some fabulous walks along the coast path with absolutely stunning scenery.

The living room has sliding doors out onto a wide, wrap-around balcony with extensive views down the river to Fowey. Several outdoor terraced areas give you options for al fresco dining and safe play areas for the children.

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.


beautiful setting.Ms Alice Fuller - 12th June 2018
A fabulous house in an amazing location. It was absolutely perfect for our celebration weekend. It was very well equipped and had a really homely feeling.We were reluctant to leave but will definitely return. I would recommend Cornish Horizons. Jess gave great advice on caterers and Charlotte from Fowey was most friendly and helpful in the run up to our stay. Mrs Janet Harrison - 16th May 2018
