The Boathouse must be one of the finest private houses available for self-catering holiday letting in Cornwall. It commands a truly stunning location right on the beach in a small quiet cove in Gillan with beautiful uninterrupted views over the Cove and beyond out to sea. The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and is perfect for launching dinghies/kayaks at all states of the tide. It provides safe sailing, swimming and rock pooling. Peacefully located at the end of a small no through lane, the house with its two sitting rooms complete with a cozy wood burner in each is ideal for family gatherings whether in summer or winter. There are two tennis courts nearby as well as good places to eat while the coast path for wonderful walks as well as the sea and beach are literally on your doorstep. Sailing dinghies, kayaks and motor launches may be hired and delivered to the beach complete with life jackets for you. Couples and smaller groups are welcome too.
The 2 master en suite bedrooms, kitchen, study and living room 1 are on the first floor together with a wonderful outside deck with outdoor seating overlooking the beach and sea. The other 4 bedrooms, 3 shower rooms, living room 2 and utility are on the ground floor.
Aside from boating and other water based activities or coastal walks which are right outside the house one can also play tennis at the two village tennis courts or go to the many surfing beaches, the nearest of which is approximately 40 minutes drive at Praa Sands. There is also lots to see and do within a short drive including wonderful gardens like Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissik, a visit to the naval air station; Culdrose, a visit to Goonhilly satellite earth station, the seal sanctuary, Flambards, a trip down a tin mine, a visit to the wonderful maritime museum in Falmouth, going to the Minnack theater which is outdoor and carved form rock. For those who book I provide a long list of places to go and things to see as well as a list of restaurants and pubs.
