About the Owner

My husband (John) and I have lived and farmed here all our lives. We, of course, have help from our wonderful and beautiful springer spaniel called Tom. He loves people and is very good with children.

We are very fortunate to live in such a wonderful location overlooking the Fowey River and in a peaceful riverside village with a local pub within walking distance. We do try and sample the ale at least once a week! We are also very fortunate to live beside a beautiful 13th Century Church (some visitors think we actually own the Church) but of course we don't !

We love our way of life and our idyllic location and we'd love your Company - so come and join us for a wonderful week away from it all and relax and enjoy a home-made Cornish Cream tea on your arrival.

We have many visitors who return year after year and have now become good friends, they love the accommodation, the location and the friendly greeting we provide for them. Freshly made Cornish jam and cream scones, and a local complimentary breakfast pack along with our own free range eggs. A vase of Fresh flowers are also provided.

Absolutely fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Amazing property with everything you could possibly want for home comfort. Fantastic views, Quiet area, beautiful location, not too far from supermarkets, fuel stations etc. etc. Property was spacious, extremely clean and well laid out. My mother in law has mobility problems and the accommodation was perfect for her. Ruth the owner was extremely helpful and Tom the dog was lovely. Will for sure come back here again one day.

  • Notes on accommodation: We are always on hand to help with anything that might be needed, you might like some local information or even just a friendly chat. Outside: All the accommodation have large fenced gardens to play, gas barbecues and garden furniture on the patio area. There is a games room with table tennis, pool and a football game. There is also a trampoline and swing/slide frame outside. The main attraction is, of course, the animals at feeding time. The animals are fed everyday at 9am in the morning and it is certainly a very popular time with children who love to feed, stroke and pet the animals. The eggs are collected which can then be taken in for breakfast - Can't get any fresher than that !!
