A highly desirable riverside family holiday cottage in Cornwall near Fowey




The first thing you notice about Penpoll is the peace! It is located in the tiny and quiet rural hamlet of Lower Penpoll, tucked into the countryside and hidden away from the hustle and bustle of life. It feels like you have unearthed a long kept secret when you finally arrive, having navigated the precariously narrow and steep lanes to get there! But Penpoll has the great advantage of offering you the best of both worlds: Hidden seclusion is to be found in the pretty garden, where you are at one with the birds on the river and grazing farm animals in the fields.

Yet you are within easy access to Daphne du Maurier’s beloved Fowey – buzzing with harbour life, and its many art galleries, restaurants and shops - via the Boddinick Ferry, just 2 miles away from Penpoll.

For families with boats, Penpoll’s proximity to Penmarlam Boatyard & Moorings is a huge bonus. Or, a few miles inland, you are immersed in the village atmosphere of beautiful Lerryn – the inspiration behind Mole and Ratty’s home in Wind in the Willows.

Further inland is the medieval town of Lostwithiel, once the seat of the Duchy of Cornwall. A walk up to the imposing Restormel Castle ruins will certainly blow the cobwebs away. The nearby Duchy of Cornwall Nursery offers plant hunting gems and delicious food in the newly re-vamped cafe.

  There are some interesting antique and interiors shops to lure the more retail-minded! The Eden Project is easily accessed from Penpoll, being less than 20 minutes' drive away.

Slightly further afield, it is easy to explore the harbour towns of Mevagissey, Charlestown and Polperro. All of which are well within half an hour’s drive from Penpoll and are packed with charm and history.
