Enys Boathouse offers self catering accommodation in rural Cornwall. Situated in the heart of a Cornish village, our holiday let is deceptively spacious and comfortably furnished, sleeping up to four people.
Enys Boathouse is a unique wooden structure based on the Bolney Ferry Boathouse on the River Thames. This charming property benefits from its own private terrace with panoramic westerly views out over the countryside, although not near water.
The village of Porkellis is ideal for those seeking a quiet, rural holiday let in Cornwall and a quiet, friendly local pub (with shop) is just 100 yards away
The boathouse is a studio-style space and offers versatile self catering accommodation suitable for families, couples or groups of friends. The main living area converts into a double bedroom; a comfy double sofa bed provides the main sleeping facilities. There is also an additional day bed which can become a single or double bed if required.
For smaller children there is the added excitement of sleeping in the Crow’s Nest - only accessible via a loft ladder - a cosy sleeping space that is ideal for younger children (those aged over 5) but is spacious enough for two adults (headroom is limited), should you prefer. All bedding and towels are provided.
When the beds are not in use, the open plan living space is great for entertaining. A TV, with Freeview, DVD player (with selection of DVDs), are included. Free WiFi is also available.
NEW FOR 2018!
We've been busy making a few improvements to Enys Boathouse including:
- New high speed internet (50mb+, completely free of charge and no usage restrictions)
- New sofa/day bed in the main living space. This can be used as a comfy sofa in the day but easily converts into a single or double bed at night (handy if your little ones would rather sleep downstairs than up in the Crow's Nest at night)
- New sprung mattresses in the Crow's Nest, so it's now even comfier!
- New digital TV and digital radio in the living area (the radio also streams music from mobile devices via bluetooth - handy if you want to boom out your Spotify playlist!)
A sailor's kitchen awaits for those who enjoy cooking and guests also have use of a BBQ. However, for those who prefer to eat out, the local pub - offering good value food and drink - is just a minute’s walk away.
Other facilities include:
- Portable Oven and hob
- Small fridge and freezer
- Fold-away surface space
- On-demand hot water
- Iron and ironing board
Elsewhere, there is also a small dining table and, for when the sun is shining, an outdoor table, chairs and parasol are also at hand.
Enys Boathouse boasts a small shower room, toilet and wash basin - towels will be provided.
Should you need to wash or dry your clothes, there is also a small room located on the ground floor (where parking is also available). Here you will find a washing machine and tumble drier as well as clothes line, BBQ and deck chairs.
For those looking short breaks in Cornwall, we are happy to offer rates for minimum stays of three nights. For those looking for a weekly holiday let in Cornwall we are happy to negotiate on the change-over day, if Saturday is not convenient.
Porkellis is perfectly situated; it is a quiet country village, surrounded by green fields, yet ideally located for access to both north and south coasts, the busy towns of Helston, Falmouth and Truro and many visitor attractions.
