Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Golant - The Boat House

2 bedroomed converted boathouse and lime kiln with magnificent views

The Boathouse is an idyllic cottage on the spectacular Fowey River Estuary, just two miles from Fowey and a step away from the water’s edge. A converted boathouse and lime kiln, the cottage is one of the oldest buildings in the picturesque village of Golant.

Comfortable and welcoming with magnificent views across the river, there is a log fire for cosy winter holidays and a private terrace ideal for spring and summer barbecues.

The accommodation is reversed so that the living area has the benefit of the wonderful views over the river. In this light and airy room, white walls and prints complement a mixture of antiques and quality furnishings, with the dining area looking out over the inner harbour.

Driving instructions: Driving along the A380 towards St Austell, take the B3269 left, which is signposted to Fowey (it also has a signpost to the Hidden Valley Gardens).

Continue along the B3269, after about 3 miles you'll come to some pale-green/white farm buildings followed shortly by a staggered crossroad, take the left turning signposted to Golant.

Keep following this road towards the river, at the waterfront it turns to the right, continue past the no through-fare sign, The Boathouse is less than a hundred yards on the right.

For exceptional holidays in an authentic village

  • 5 out of 5
Cornwall has changed but at Golant and in this old restored Boat House we enjoyed a really nice week far from crowded beaches. Judith had prepared a nice tea with pastries for our arrival from France. The rooms are decorated with taste and are very comfortable. Every day the river Fowey just across the narrow road and the activities of the rowing club offer pleasant interludes following the movements of the tides. When we wished to rest after our trips to the north or south coasts, the small flowery terrace in the shade beside the house was ideal particularly because we had such a sunny weather throughout. We above all enjoyed driving on the narrow winding roads of Cornwall and trekking above the sea up and down the never-ending footpaths. From Golant, the pictureque ports are all within short distances and worth visiting. In Fowey 7 miles away, we could do our shopping.To put it in a nutshell, we loved such exceptional surroundings.
Just a warning advice though: the Boat House is not to be recommended for people with reduced mobility and young chidren must be kept under constant supervision particularly when the tide is high and when the water floods the road up to the house. .

Owner's Response: Dear Pierre,

Many thanks for your review and also for pointing out the flooding across the road on the very high tide that we had during your visit.

I think it would be useful for potential guests that have booked or considering a holiday in the Boathouse to note that during your stay we had our annual high spring tide this happens twice a year in March & September and does not occur at other times of the year.

It was delightful to me you all and I very much hope to see you again soon.

With best wishes,

Judith

A fabulous stay.

  • 5 out of 5
Although small we had a lovely stay at the Boathouse. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We had a wonderfully warm welcome with a home made cream tea, wine and local fudge. The owner, Judith, was brilliant at keeping in touch and really helpful with organising a travel cot and high chair for us. The views of the river, from the lounge window and garden, are stunning. We loved the Toll Bar and Prince of Prussia in Fowey for food. Nothing flash but good food at reasonable prices. Gutted we didn't get to try out Sam's, or Sam's on the beech! I would recommend this property to friends, but would also point out that it is a very small and quite village, and the bedrooms are quite snug. We loved it!

Beautiful quiet retreat

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I spent a very pleasant 5 days in the Boathouse. Our host, Judith, met us with freshly baked scones, homemade jam & clotted cream and a friendly, helpful outline of some of the area's charms. We throughly enjoyed the accommodation, including a well-equipped kitchen and a great view over the tidal estuary. The 5 meter tides were amazing to watch, leaving the locals' boats high and dry for half the day. The rowing club across the road was active, and their training fun to watch. The region has many charms, making possible easy day trips -- to Fowey on foot and further to St. Ives and the Lost Gardens of Heligan nearby. The bedrooms in the Boathouse are smaller but certainly adequate. Everything was clean and well cared for. I can't recommend it more highly.

Idyllic cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We had a really wonderful holiday here with our 8 year old daughter. The cottage has a lovely outlook over the water and our daughter loved exploring the mud flats when the tide was out and crabbing when the tide was in. There is also a very good playground just up the road.
Judith has thought of everything and we loved the welcome scones waiting on our arrival. Golant is very near Fowey so is a great location with lots to do and see. Would definately recommend.

Sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide

  • 5 out of 5
You can watch the tide all the time from this wonderful property right on a side arm of the River Fowey. The website promises a lot - and you won't be disappointed. The well-equipped Boathouse provides comfort and some luxury. It is very clean, very tastefully furnished and to wake up to the sun in the double bedroom is pure bliss. Weather allowing, the terrace offers a grand view over Golant and the River Fowey. On cooler days, the stove in the living room makes for cozy evenings. The kitchen is spacious and has all the trappings you need for cooking and baking.
The icing on the cake is the way Judy (the owner) treats her guests. We were bowled over by the reception with cream tea, freshly cut flowers and fresh herbs. We're normally not too keen on owners living nearby from our holiday home, but we're glad we met Judy. She is a fabulous host and doesn't ever give the impression of intruding. Quite the contrary - we enjoyed our chats and hope to see her again.
Golant is a little village with mainly water sports activities (a lively rowing club starts its practice runs right in front of the Boathouse). We used it as a base for a lot of walking and some sightseeing (Landhydrock Estate impressed us). Be aware of narrow and steep roads on the way down to the village.
The weather wasn't always what we had hoped for during our stay, but the Boathouse was a place you enjoy staying at, when you don't want to go out.

Our super Golant holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The Boathouse is an absolutely super cottage for a first class relaxing holiday. Everything about the cottage shouts 'quality' and the welcome afternoon tea of clotted cream, jam and scones set the standard for our week. No expense has been spared to make the cottage very homely with every amenity you could possibly need while on holiday and from the moment you walk in you feel 'at home' and relaxed.
It's spotlessly clean and obviously a labour of love, top marks to Judith! Quiz night with the locals at The Fishermans Arms was great fun, really nice to socialise with the village residents who made us very welcome. We will return.... Trevor & Sharon, Godalming, Surrey

Restaurants, pubs and stunning scenery are within walking distance, while sandy beaches, historical sites such as Restormel Castle and Lanhydrock House, and the famous Eden Project are a short drive away.

In Summertime there’s a range of activities, and even in high summer the village of Golant remains one of Cornwall’s best-kept secrets as a peaceful waterside retreat. Autumn & Winter holidays are popular too, with the nearby oyster festival and Christmas & New Year celebrations.Golant is an ancient fishing village on the Fowey River Estuary, just two miles from Fowey. The area is steeped in fascinating history, with the last battle between Cromwell's army and the Royalists having taken place nearby in 1644, and many of Daphne du Maurier's novels set in the vicinity.

This stretch of the Fowey River is equally famous as the inspiration for Kenneth Graham's The Wind In The Willows.
