Set in 17 acres of idyllic grounds with a half mile of private River Fowey frontage offering top class private salmon and trout fishing, Rivermead has some of the most spectacular scenery and whether fishing, bird watching, sightseeing, walking, golfing, cycling or just relaxing.
Otter Lodge is a completely new property for 2017, positioned right on the bank of the River Fowey. Nestled among the trees, this is quite an exceptional location with steps down on to the patio from the living room where you could literally through a stone into the water. During your stay at Rivermead it is possible to see kingfisher, otters, badgers, foxes, owls, wild deer, heron, mallards, moorhen and Canadian geese, not to mention bluetits, finches, nuthatches, robins, woodpeckers, thrushes and hovering birds of prey.
This brand new lodge is equipped with all the features you'd expect from a luxury lodge: gas central heating, sumptuous leather settees and chairs, solid oak dining furniture, Bosch appliances and a myriad of kitchen equipment, to name but a few.
The lake provides an idyllic setting for sitting out on a summer's evening, watching the setting sun, with a glass of wine perhaps. There are benches and picnic tables both outside the properties and by the river and lake and portable barbeques are available. River fishing, in season. Fishing is free on the River Fowey (please enquire as to availability). Whether an experienced fisherman or a novice, why not relax down by the water and pit your wits against nature. Who knows, perhaps you'll catch your evening meal or snap a photo to show your friends! A Ghillie can be hired by separate negotiation and booked in advance.
