This delightful property forms part of a spectacular Georgian residence, boasts beautiful water views, and has been purpose fitted and furnished to provide a comfortable Cornish retreat.

Perfectly situated on the banks of the River Fowey, the property is close to the ancient port of Fowey. The coastal village of Polruan is a short drive away, with a passenger ferry linking the two. Only slightly further afield, days out can include trips to Looe and Polperro to the east, and Mevagissey to the west. Pretty Lostwithiel is also well worth a visit and here you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to boutique interior shops and antiques emporiums. Walkers will be in their element due to direct access onto a public footpath, and the South West Coast Path nearby. Other attractions accessible from here include the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Charlestown and numerous National Trust properties.

Stepping inside this pretty property via the French doors from the veranda, you will immediately find yourself in the beautifully light and airy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. This great multifunctional room boasts a TV, DVD and wood burner, and offers cosy sofa seating, alongside a dining and kitchen area. The kitchen itself is also perfectly appointed and offers an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Completing the offering on the ground floor, there is a useful separate WC located to the rear of the property. Heading up the stairs you will discover the stunning bedrooms, the first of which is a spacious king-size with lovely water views. The other bedroom is a pretty single bedroom with an additional single pull out bed (which can be used to accommodate an additional guest), located at the rear of the property and finally there is a beautifully appointed bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC.

Located outside and to the side of the property there is a delightful riverside terrace with garden furniture (this is designated for the use of Captains Cottage guests but occupants of the other properties have access over the side of this), providing the perfect place to dine outside in warm weather.

Fantastic location with beautiful views from the terrace that gets the sun most of the day. We hired a boat for the week from Maurice and enjoyed exploring the area. The cottage works well for a family of 4 with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, additional toilet, kitchen, living room and laundry room. We would highly recommend!

The position of the property is amazing, very peaceful, could have spent all day just boat and bird watching. Quiet public footpath in front of cottage was a lovely short walk along one side of the creek, crossing over to fields on the other side. Good coast path walking (some very steep!). Interesting boat trip to Mevagissy from Fowey approx. 35 mRead moreinutes, small but well stocked museum there which is free. Very relaxing week. Hide

Its an absolute idol. A great break away from our very busy lifes. We loved cooking in at night and the kitchen was well equipped for this. But the best bit was the terrace and the views. Ever changing and the bird like was amazing.

Fantastic river views from comfortable property. Bathroom has opaque glass door ..& overlooked clear glass window. Only access is by single track overgrown hazardous lane for +1 mile. No privacy from other guests- house divided into 4. 5 each way on Fowey car ferry.
