About the Property

One 7 bedroomed house and one 2 bedroomed wooden lodge

Set in its very own tidal creek on the banks of the River Fowey, The Old Sawmills is a haven of tranquility.
A converted water mill dating back to the 17th century
Nestled in acres of woodland, the location alone is stunningly beautiful.
Whilst staying at the Old Sawmills you have the feeling of being on your own island, as access to the Sawmills is by boat... yet you can walk out any time, along the scenic footpath of the Saints way.
The site has seen a wealth of history from medieval merchants to Wind in the Willows, wartime employment to world famous recording studio. Located between the charming village of Golant and the picturesque town of Fowey, it’s both an ideal base for visiting many of the sights of Cornwall and a perfect setting for simply relaxing and watching the tide lap in. Good fishing can be had from the outer quay and there are many walks that can be joined from the grounds
The Old Sawmills is a dog’s paradise too, and well behaved animals are welcome. Please do call directly if you are interested in booking as emails not always received through this site.
