Lerryn, Cornwall, England
The first thing you notice about Penpoll is the peace! Here you truly escape from the hustle and bustle of life - whatever the season - as Kingfishers dart in and out of the creek. It is a very special and much loved spot, where the choice is to enjoy the peace of the garden, and surrounding countryside, or to get involved in all the varied activities this beautiful part of the South Cornwall coast has to offer. There are stunning views of bird-life on the river and the surrounding countryside from the house and garden.

Recently refurbished, Penpoll is extremely comfortable, with an Aga and wood burner for cosy evenings. The four comfortable bedrooms - all with a view of the river - can accommodate two families of budding swallows and amazons. With dams in the creek to build, the large garden to explore, sailing lessons, boat hire...

About the neighbourhood
The working Harbour town of Fowey and the surrounding area is steeped in history, and made famous by the writings of Daphne du Maurier (see Rebecca's beach, Polridmouth 15mins from Penpoll), Sir Arthur Quiller Couch (sailing in Fowey Harbour). and Kenneth Williams, (Imagine Ratty and Mole from Wind in the Willows, as you canoe upriver for a picnic).

Favourite nearby beaches (within 15mins drive) include:
Lantic Bay. A bit of a walk, and a steep climb up but so worth it!
Talland Bay. Cafe & shop, rock pools and sandy beach
Polridmouth. Daphne du Maurier's beach at Menabiliy. A 10 minute walk, but again, worth it!
Polkerris. A true smuggler's cove beach, with pub and great restaurant right on the beach.

From Fowey, take a ferry across the bay to Megavissey where there...
