Experience - The Area...
Just a 10 minute drive from the stunning South West Coast Path and the secluded beaches at Lantivet Bay and Lansallos Cove, this picturesque, very traditional, detached house is set in an unspoilt little creekside hamlet on a tributary of the Fowey river.
The original Mill House for the unrestored mill on the edge of the stream it is set into sloping ground and entered from the parking area by an uneven granite and cobbled path that crosses the unused mill leat at one point. There is a little bridge crossing over Penpoll Creek where it is possible to launch canoes and small dinghies at high tide, 25 yards away.
Bodinnick, 2 miles, has a quaint old pub and a car ferry operating to the bustling town of Fowey. There are circular country walks from the doorstep and excellent walks upriver to Lerryn and St Winnow as well as the spectacular coastal Fowey Hall Walk.
The picturesque harbour at Polperro is 6 miles by road where there are a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants, and the larger resort of Looe, 10 miles away, has a wider choice of amenities and a sandy beach. The Eden Project and Lanhydrock House are within a 30 minute drive.
Stay - The Accommodation...
The stable door set beneath a slate roof opens into a hallway with cloaks area to one side. This delightful house has low beamed ceilings, latch doors and interesting alternatives to vertical walls. The sitting room set to one side of the hall is comfortably furnished with the original fireplace and views from the window and window seat down over the front lawn to the stream.
On the other side of the hall a beamed kitchen / dining room has similar views, country pine furniture and pine units. There is one small bedroom on this level with a 2ft 6inch single bed.
Rather steep stairs lead up to a landing with two further bedrooms, both very spacious, beamed and with views across the valley and down the creek, one with a double bed and hand basin, the other with two 3ft beds and one 2ft 6inch bed and a hand basin. A bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath completes the accommodation.
A grassy garden, with useful outside W.C., surrounds the house, edged by the river along one side and not a place for unsupervised toddlers or young children but a delight for older ones. There is off road parking for 2 vehicles with further parking on the private grass verge adjacent to the property.
