Smugglers Loft is at the top of a lovely old waterside house set right beside 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 during their holiday. Built around 1805, the lofts were used for storing apples and drying tobacco until they were converted into living accommodation and they have lovely sloping ceilings and dormer windows with beautiful high views down the river. Providing cosy and comfortable accommodation, Smugglers Loft is reached by outside stairs up from the river and the parking area. There is a lounge with pretty views, a good-sized kitchen, and a double and single bedroom. Although the Loft is at the top of the house, it opens out onto a small sloping garden with a seating area for enjoying meals al fresco when the weather allows.

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.


Office staff very helpful with booking an extra night.Mr R Remiszewski - 25th September 2015
