About Bob Weatherall
We are Bob & Sandra, owners of Cascade Cottage, and we live in Somerset. We have three grown up children. Bob works for a housing association and Sandra is a teacher.
Bob Weatherall purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Bob Weatherall chose Saint Sampson
Cascade Cottage has been in Bob's family for a very long time and was originally an open field used by his grandfather to park a caravan for his holidays. Over many years the caravan became a house, was extended on both sides, passed down through the generations, and in 2012 was split into two properties of which Cascade is now our family holiday cottage. We let the property out for holidays to cover running costs and give others an opportunity to enjoy this magical setting.
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a very special property in an absolutely stunning spot, with panoramic and uninterrupted views across the River Fowey Estuary. It is a wonderful and beautiful place to have a truly relaxing holiday. We would be most pleased to answer any questions on anything.

Comfortable, relaxing with great views.
Comfortable, relaxing with great views.
An unrivalled position on the estuary. A lovely comfortable, light bright property - so relaxing. It is a very interesting area with so much to do and see. We have had a busy week and the house was a delight to return to each evening.
Idyllic setting, clean, comfortable and with all the equipment needed
Pretty, perfect setting, views and easy access from the station by a short taxi journey.( parking space if required too). Lovely base for walking.
Wonderful welcoming community and excellent owner who was extremely helpful and prompt with his communications.
Great views up and down the valley from all parts of the house and great little pub at the bottom of the hill (plus kids loved the play park near the pub too!!)
Comfortable some minor TLC required
Comfortable clean property the glass front would be great in the light summer evenings but in the dark winter evenings with no curtains or blinds did not make the lounge feel very cosy. Kitchen was a bit dark and could do with better lighting again im sure its fine in the summer.
Sharp knives need sharpening, frying pans are no longer non stick. all minor points, overall a pleasant and comfortable stay.
Cascade is a beautiful house in a stunning location
We were lucky with the weather which enabled us to make full use of the outdoor terraces and lose ourselves in the view. We did tear ourselves away to visit Landhydrock, the Eden Project, Fowey and Charlestown all an easy drive from Cascade. The house contained everything we needed and it was such a privilege to stay there. Thank you Bob.
Special interest holidays:
The Fowey Estuary provides many activities including beaches, walks, fishing and boating. Encounter Cornwall is based just below our cottage and provides kayak hire or beginner kayak lessons along the river and the numerous waterside creeks.
River walks are available immediately beside the cottage.
The surrounding beaches are 3 miles travel.
Car travel is recommended. The alternative would be a 3 mile taxi journey from Par railway station. The lane access to our private parking is narrow and so please check with the owners beforehand if planning to bring a particularly large car (as a guide anything larger than a standard people carrier could be challenging). There is alternative pay and display parking easily accessible below the cottage with private access through our garden.
Cormorant hotel (restaurant) and the Fishermans Arms (real ale village pub) are both within a two minute walk.
Fowey is 3 miles by road or just over an hour's walk using the Saints Way footpath over the Golant Downs.
