The property

Tywardreath 2.6 miles.

This stunning, detached property sits in the idyllic riverside village of Golant near Fowey, Cornwall.

Affording beautiful views down the river, The Watchers provides a magnificent base for a family looking to spend quality time together.

Stepping inside, the ground-floor offers a bright and airy open-plan living space, with an amply appointed kitchen housing all the essentials for home-cooking, whilst the centre dining table is ideal for mealtimes.

Move over to the sitting area and you’ll be drawn to the stunning river views, with a corner sofa and two chairs for you to relax on.

Sort out your laundry in the utility room, complete with washing machine and tumble dryer, before locating a twin bedroom and adjacent contemporary shower room.

Move upstairs and discover further class, with three tasteful bedrooms to choose from; the master occupies a generous super-king-size with freestanding bath and en-suite shower, whilst there is also another super-king-size and twin with beautiful presentation.

Completing the interior is a gleaming family bathroom, providing a choice of roll-top bath with hand-held shower, or a separate walk-in shower, so you can best decide how to prepare for your day.

At the rear of The Watchers lies a decked area with furniture, so you can enjoy alfresco dining with a view, whilst there is off-road parking at the front for one car, with extra parking available in the village at an additional cost.

Just around the corner is a traditional pub, the Fishermans Arms, offering a hearty menu and selection of ales, whilst a little further up the road lies a popular bar, the Bar Silo Cornwall, perfect for a greater variety of beverages.

In Golant you will find Encounter Cornwall who run water activities such as Kayak trips as well as stand-up paddleboarding lessons and tours.

Take off further afield and explore pretty coves with sandy beaches nearby such as Lantic Bay and Ready Money Cove with the town of St Austell within easy driving distance.

Head to the historic port town of Fowey, where you can visit Fowey Museum, explore the Aquarium, take the ferry across the harbour to Polruan or join the scenic South West Coast Path for breath-taking walks.

Escape to The Watchers for a holiday you won’t forget.

Please note: This property does not accept stag or hen do bookings.

About the location


Fowey 3.3 miles; St Austell 6.3 miles.

The pretty, historic Cornish village of Tywardreath, meaning ‘The House on the Strand’, lies in the heart of Daphne du Maurier country and features in her book of the same name. St Andrew’s, the village church, is said to have the best peal of bells in the area, while the village has a lively community, centred round its excellent pubs and range of shops. There are several safe, sandy beaches close to the village, with a variety of watersports and leisure activities available. Par, a small, china clay port with a dog friendly sandy beach is a fifteen minute walk from the village or 5 minutes in the car, home to a main line railway station. Polkerris Beach, a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute drive away, has a beachside restaurant, pub and watersports centre. The attractive waterside village of Fowey is just three miles away, from where there are some dramatic cliff walks to Gribbin Head, passing through much of du Maurier’s familiar landscape. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Tywardreath is a village that will appeal to families and those keen to explore the rich heritage and gorgeous coastline of South Cornwall.
