Wonderfully quirky and comfy
Spent Christmas here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Can imagine that would be great in the summer and would be able to make better use of the private garden. Small oven made Xmas dinner a little challenging but was practical enough.
Overall a great stay... thanks Mike...
This boathouse is absolutely beautiful and so quirky,it’s home from home,it literally has everything you need.if it’s needed it’s there!

Sad to be leaving as it was just perfect ❤️
Look forward to visiting again😊
The boathouse sits up in the trees overlooking the garden. The owners thought of everything such as cooking utensils, comfy bed and plenty of little touches such as books and tourist guides to make it a great place to just chill out. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and it is close to many other towns and seaside areas. I left the boathouse feeling thoroughly revived and hope to come back again in the future. Lovely owners who sent plenty of instructions to help me find the place and make sure that I was settled in.
Hi Angela, thanks for your lovely review :) We'd love to welcome you back again soon!
Loved it. Very Quirky and Cool.
We had a great 3 nights stay in the Boathouse. It was just the right size for the family of 4 considering we were mostly only there in the evening. Mike was a great host and showed us round the property. Kids slept up in the loft for the first 2 nights then my wife and I gave it a go on the final night.
Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and was a good base for touring round cornwall. Would recommend thoroughly.
A lovely quiet space perfect for escaping the burdens of modern life
The Boathouse is a lovely space: clean, warm, well lit and very comfortable, Mike and His Wife were very welcoming.
The Boathouse provided us with a great base from which to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside. The local pub/library/shop (all three services in one building with tasty beer) is but a stones throw away and serves great food and beer should cooking seem like too much of a bother.
We will be back again.
Outstanding Accommodation in the heart of Cornwall.
We looked for a nice peaceful location in the heart of Cornwall and found Porkellis to be ideal.
Enys Boathouse, situated in the heart of the village, was perfect for our family of four for the weeks get away. Immaculatly clean, it had everything we needed for a home from home. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you'd need, corkscrew included! The living area provided space for two adults and two teenagers to have space from each other when needed and was cosy when we were together when eating or playing games. The facilities included a washer & dryer which came in very useful after all the trips to the beaches. With a secluded garden, ideal if you've got little ones who like to run and play, Enys Boathouse is tucked away off the beaten track and a stones throw from the village pub where we were made to feel most welcome. Our gracious hosts for the week were just next door and nothing was too much trouble, not that they hadn't thought of everything already.
We have no hesitation in recommending Enys Boathouse to families, young and old, singles or couples looking for a relaxing break from the pressures of modern life and we look forward to returning again in the future.
Only a five minute drive from Poldark Mine and 30 metres from the village pub which serves great food, local ales and also has a small shop.
