Harbour House is a beautifully presented, newly renovated property with captivating estuary views overlooking the River Fowey. This enchanting holiday home sits in an enviable waterside setting in Golant, a sleepy Cornish fishing village with narrow lanes and old Cornish cottages.
There are two terraces at the front of the property overlooking the water. You can watch the canoeists and the rowers come in and out of the Pill, a tidal lagoon which was created when the Fowey to Lostwithiel railway was built or just enjoy the comings and goings on the water.
Inside, the accommodation has been sympathetically renovated so as to keep many of the original features whilst, at the same time, providing modern comforts designed for maximum relaxation.
The open plan living room has a superb picture window framing the ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ beyond and a wood burner for fireside cosiness – perfect for when you return from your winter walks. The modern kitchen at one end makes a fantastic social space to cook and eat. Of course you may decide to stroll down to The Fishermans Arms for supper, 3 minutes away, also overlooking the water with a large garden. There is also a good size WC downstairs too.
Both bedrooms are spacious and have stylish en-suite shower rooms. The front bedroom can either be a king sized bed or 2 single beds and there are bunk beds in this room for further bed space if required.
There is a conservatory at the rear of the house and a cloakroom.
Harbour House is perfectly placed to explore; hire a canoe or kayak from the estuary beach below and discover tranquil creeks and smugglers caves with plenty of wild life to spot on the way.
