House In Devoran, Nr. Truro, Cornwall, England

Overview

Property

Updated: 26-Nov-2016
House in Devoran, Nr. Truro, Cornwall, England - A Very Light, Spacious And Sunny Modern Home With Stunning Views Of The Creek

Our house is light, spacious and comfortable and is perfect for relaxing or using as a base for all the water sport activities on offer near to the village. When the tide is up you can canoe, kayak or sail from the house, and there are many fabulous beaches within 10 miles of our house, either on the North coast of the South coast. We are also right on the Bissoe Cycle trail which means you can cycle from the house all the way to the North Coast. If you are looking for a quieter time, then you can sit on the deck and watch the wildlife.

About the Owner

We run the small boatyard here in Devoran. We bought the boatyard in 1999 and used to sit for hours on the piece of adjoining land with our tea dreaming of living on the creek. This was realised in 2006 and haven't looked back. The children couldn't think of anywhere else to live. The house is always light and airy and the views are ever changing. Many a day gets lost just watching the birdlife and the children playing in the water or even the mud! When the tide is right up we have taken canoes and a rib up the estuary to Falmouth or to the Pandora Inn for a quick drink. This summer we have decided to go to the South of France and sit by a pool and trek in the Pyrenees,(the boatyard will not be operating whilst we are away).

The Boat House is an amazing property !!

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is excellent and central to lots of places. The house itself is not like a holiday home, it feels more like you are staying in someone's actual home as there is everything there that you could ever need. The view from the house changes on a daily basis as the tide comes in and out and it is so peaceful and relaxing. The trampoline outside was a big hit with the kids who bounced all week long. We will definitely be looking to stay here again next year !!!!

The Boathouse in Devoran - A fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

The Boathouse is a great family retreat in a peaceful location overlooking the creek. We felt totally at home and relaxed during our stay here. The house is very spacious, light and airy with beautiful views from all the windows. The kitchen/diner is extremely well-equipped and separate laundry and store rooms are a great addition. The large lounge and snug room means that there is plenty of room for a large family to spread out! The whole house is clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The location is a perfect base for exploring Cornwall (being close to the A39) or just relaxing on the decking in the sunshine. The lovely local pub is a short walk away and serves good food. We had a wonderful holiday in Devoran and would highly recommend this property.

Lovely relaxing time. Fantastic views and great swims in the river in front of the house. Great kick around of football on the samphire pitch across the river. House very well catered didn't need anything that wasn't there. Nice local pub to walk to if you don't fancy cooking. Proper coffee machine much appreciated. would happily return.

Fantastic Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A great house in a gorgeous location. Stayed for a week and couldn't have been happier. The house has everything you need and is so bright and spacious. The kids loved the location and spend hours on the trampoline and around the waters edge. Owners were very helpful and communication was great.

Couldn't have been better, highly recommended.

A Great Wedding Week at The Boathouse

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Boathouse, its homey feel and fabulous views and it was so conveniently located for our sons wedding at the Devoran Quay. The house is spacious and bright with constantly changing views along the creek. It was very comfortable for our family of 8 plus baby, and we had a very relaxing time out and about taking in the local beaches and lovely coastal villages of .southern Cornwall.
