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.


I have awarded excellent throughout because we could not fault the holiday at all. The house was absolutely beautiful, everything was most enjoyable, peaceful and tranquil. Hospitable hosts together with stunning location made the perfect holiday.Ms Helen Gardiner - 26th September 2017
It is quite isolated and quiet which suited us as we like walking and had our boat moored at Penmarlam which was about 5 mins walk across the fields. There are also a lot of stairs so we came back a lot fitter in spite of all the lovely cream teas! The house is very spacious and has character. If you want to get away from it all then you would love it here, we would definitely recommend it for a family holiday. Mr J Russell - 24th July 2017
About the property - really nice, we had a great holiday; There was a great selection of books and visitors information too, much appreciated.Mrs Candi Roufosse - 23rd February 2017
Great to be on the water's edge and to be able to. Canoe from your door - lovely quiet location.Dr T Jones - 4th April 2016
The Milkman's list was helpful. We placed a large order ready for when we arrived.Mrs Victoria Hubbard - 1st September 2015
a first class friendly service.Mr R Jenkins - 22nd June 2015
