  • Mr Clare

    “We love staying here and have done a couple of times now but think the hike in prices for the same week next year is ludicrous.”

    Its gone from £900 to over £2000 for the same week in July and its not even school holidays. Unfortunately a lost customer now

About the property

In Golant, on the edge of the harbour and surrounded on three sides by water at high tide, a fabulous cottage on two levels, aptly named Island House.

The location is superb with water views from every window and from the first floor the river’s moorings can be seen beyond the Victorian railway embankment, along which an occasional freight train trundles with china clay bound for Fowey.

Step from front door into a bright spacious kitchen-dining room with lovely views and then into a large beamed living room with limestone-flagged floor and rugs, and a wood burning stove.

For those quiet moments, there is a charming little study with a desk.

From the living room head up the twisting stairs to two bedrooms both with TVs – a pretty king-size double, and a twin together with a family bathroom.

Back in the kitchen, there is a second flight of stairs up to a smart king-size double with TV, en suite shower-room and French windows to a balcony with the best views across the estuary.

There is an enclosed, mainly cobbled pretty garden around two sides of the house with a sun terrace, garden furniture and BBQ for alfresco dining at any time of day.

Dinghy mooring is available nearby (16' open boat can be hired and delivered from Fowey).

An exceptional waterside property in a beautiful part of Cornwall.

About the location


Fowey 4 miles; Charlestown 6.9 miles; St. Austell 7.7 miles

Perched on the river Fowey, Golant is a quaint Cornish waterside village offering a Fisherman’s arms Pub, the Comorant Hotel and Restaurant and a retail art gallery. This charming village, due to the stretch of the River Fowey Golant sits on, has inspired many writers including the author of “The Wind in the Willows”. Why not enjoy this picturesque river first hand and book a kayaking trip? Four miles away is the famous yachting village of Fowey which is bursting with character. Walk down the enchanting cobbled streets accompanied by Georgian historic buildings. This unique village is home to an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, with plenty to offer for everyone all year round. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
