Overview

About the property

Cottage in Golant, on the Fowey estuary, Cornwall - Excellent location for a relaxing holiday or as a base to visit Cornwall's many attractions.

Cascade holiday cottage is set in a breathtaking location within the quaint and pretty village of Golant, an area of outstanding natural beauty, just two miles upriver from the historic coastal town of Fowey. The cottage has two large double bedrooms and is ideal for 2 to 4 persons. The cottage enjoys stunning uninterrupted views of the Fowey river and its surrounding ancient woodlands. This is a great base from which to explore the very best of Cornwall. Golant is known for its wonderful location and stunning views across the Fowey estuary. The tides are continually changing and provide an ever-changing backdrop and a fascination to watch. The Cottage is set in its own large and established gardens, with its own private steps up to Gumms Lane (provide access to the Golant Downs and the Saints Way) and also private steps down to Water Lane below (provide access to the quay, river and sandbars).

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 Newquay & St Austell area

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 hope that we can keep the cottage as a forever home, and to 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.

From April 2016, we have subscribed to Owners Direct's online booking and payment system; however if you prefer to book direct with us please send us an email which can be accessed through our website link.

We would be most pleased to answer any questions on anything.

Wonderfully peaceful with an ever changing view

  • 5 of 5

Great location allowing a great view over the Fowey river which being tidal provides an ever changing view, the river is busy with boats, kayaks, SUPPers and wildlife including a seal. The pub is 5 minutes away and has an open music session night, a euchre night and is the focal point of the village, a pint of Sea Fury is recommended and is a bar meal. Some good circular walks and try the kayak tour which is into Foyey and back.we would be happy to return any time of the year.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to explain the tranquility that this truly special location offers. The views from both lounge and main bedroom are breathtaking. The house is perfectly equipped with everything you would need (although I missed the part about bringing my own towels, but Bob was on hand to rectify this straight away) the house was spotlessly clean with pretty gardens to explore.

The drive to the property is properly Cornish, the lanes just keep on getting narrower, but follow Bob's instructions and with a medium sized car you will have no problem.

There is a friendly village pub serving up a good selection of food 2 minutes walk away and be sure to make use of the kayaking club (immediately below the property) to enjoy a guided tour of the estuary.

We took a lovely walk along the estuary following The Saints way to Fowey, this took about an hour.

All in all I would highly recommend this location as a great base for exploring the south coast of Cornwall.

Location

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.

Coast/Beach:

River walks are available immediately beside the cottage.

The surrounding beaches are 3 miles travel.

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 below the cottage.

Distances:

Cormorant hotel (restaurant) and the Fishermans Arms (real ale village pub) are both within a two minute walk.

Fowey is 3 miles by road.
