Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Fowey, Cornwall, England
The cottage
The Boathouse is an idyllic cottage on the spectacular Fowey River Estuary, just two miles from Fowey and a step away from the water’s edge. A converted boathouse and lime kiln, the cottage is one of the oldest buildings in the picturesque village of Golant.
Comfortable and welcoming with magnificent views across the river, there is a log fire for cosy winter holidays and a private terrace ideal for spring and summer barbecues.

The cottage accommodation
The accommodation is reversed so that the living area has the benefit of the wonderful views over the river. In the light and airy living room white walls and prints complement a mixture of antiques and comfortable furnishings, with the dining area looking out over the inner harbour.

Garden terrace
In an elevated position to the side of The Boathouse, is your private terrace...

About the neighbourhood
Lying about 3 miles upriver from Fowey, Golant is a pretty waterside village. Much loved as a stop off on a river trip or kayaking expedition, the village is in a stunning position hugging the banks of the river, the views here are tremendous.

During the summer months the river and village are busy with boating activity but in the quieter winter months a great variety of birdlife can be seen on the water – egrets, cormorants, herons, kingfishers as well as ducks and swans.

The village has a hotel and restaurant with 2 AA Rosettes for dining and a local pub serving real ales, the pub has regular entertainment including live music and a beer festival.
Getting around
There are many options for getting around, the most popular is by river. Kayak hire is available close to the Boathouse ( details you will find on arrival ). There are lovely walks in the area including the Saints Way which takes you along the river Fowey into the town of Fowey. Approx time 1.5 hours, if you drive it will take 15 minutes.
There are many more ideas / options all included in the information folder in the Boathouse.
