About Cris

Semi-retired interior designer with love of the river and Cornwall. I love kayaking, gardening, reading and shopping.

Cris purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Cris chose Golant

The village of Golant is unique. We fell in love with the river and pub, the cottage has a beautiful feel to it and we found it while holidaying in nearby Lanlivery.

What makes this cottage unique

Located in the heart of this very friendly village you will be part of a lovely community. There is plenty to do, you will be welcomed to do the pub quiz on alternate Tuesdays. The Cornish card game of Euchre is played on the other Tuesdays. Village Hall film shows on the last Friday of the month. Pretty church with a very happy and welcoming congregation, services at 9.15am and third Sunday Evensong instead. Easter Egg Rolling, August Carnival and Madness in the Pill water games. Perfect location for Daphne du Maurier Fowey Festival and Regatta Week. you can even walk into Fowey to avoid the traffic jams.

Sweet little cottage. Extremely comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. Loved eating in the garden.

Golant is a beautiful place, well placed for Fowey and other places to visit, as well as the coastal path. Really quiet and peaceful. Cottage is just right for a couple, with everything you need for a short break. Delightful!
