Pentye is a recently converted former boat store/ shed, with lots of luxury touches. It is tucked in beside the wall of an old lime Kiln, right on the banks of the river Lerryn. There is a little balcony with table and chairs for sitting out and watching the tides ebb and flow. You can kayak or even swim straight from the lawn at high tide. At lower tides you can park on the small lane right outside,which runs alongside the river's edge.There are fantastic walks straight from the door, a booklet in the house lists lots of riverside circular walks. The ancient woodland just along from the house was said to be the inspiration for Kenneth Grahame's book 'Wind in the Willows'. You can hire kayaks from Golant who will deliver them and kayak from the house to St Winnow, Fowey or Lostwithiel, or simply mess about on the river and take a picnic for the day. It is ideal for artists and bird watching Alternatively Fowey is about 15 mins by car via the Boddinick ferry.There is a good local shop within a few steps of the house, which sells wine, beer, local cider, take away pasties and a wide range of groceries, so no need to leave if you don't want to. There is also a pub in Lerryn which has great cornish beer on draught and they do a fab bowl of Fowey mussels and chips, they can also rustle up take away fish and chips. The ancient town of Lostwithiel is 3 miles away which has lots of wonderful antique shops, cafes, pubs and a small supermarket.The Duchy Nursery is just outside Lostwithiel with an excellent range of plants and a really well worth visiting cafe, with delicious food.The Eden Project is only 8 miles, The National Trust's Lanhydrock House and the fishing villages of Looe and Polperro a short drive.
There are many good food places to eat out in Cornwall from the nearby Sam's on the beach at Polkerris to a bit further afield for Rick Stein's and Paul Ainsworth's in Padstow. you wont be bored.....so much to do and see!
