About the property

Cottage in Lanteglos, Nr. Fowey, Cornwall, England - Colquite Cottage Is In A Peaceful, Unspoilt Area But Only 10 Mins Away From The Coast

The centrally heated cottage has been furnished and equipped to provide a comfortable and relaxing holiday for up to 6 people and a baby. It is on the east side of the Fowey River Estuary. This is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of South Cornwall, with stunning views and lovely walks from the cottage. One of our favourites is along Penpol Creek where you can see several species of ducks and other water birds. Sometimes migrating geese can be seen and heard in their hundreds. It is an ideal location for walkers and their dogs. Wi-fi & Sky T.V. are provided.An oval pool approximately 6m by 3m with a solar cover is available in July and August. The patio has rattan patio furniture, sunloungers and a barbeque. It's an ideal place to relax and enjoy this peaceful location. Access is down a long private drive shared with Colquite Farm and Colquite Barn. The nearest coves and beaches are a few minutes by car. Lantic Bay, one of the largest, has a good safe beach sheltered by the cliffs behind. Access to Lantic Bay is a down well worn cliff path.At low tide other more secluded coves can be reached from here. Lantivet, just along from Lantic Bay is a quieter but interesting cove. At low tide there is lots of pristine sand and rock pools for children to explore. Lansallos is another beautiflul cove. You arrive here following the old smugglers track that winds through a wooded valley from Lansallos Church. Between Lantivet and Lansallos is the tiny Palace Cove that enjoys the last of the evening sun. The miles of coastal path have stunning vistas and are edged with wild flowers through the Spring and Summer months. There are several circular walks that include the coastal path and quiet inland lanes. One of the more famous local walks is Hall Walk which takes you into Pont Pill and through the woods along the Fowey Estuary to Polruan, a trip from Polruan to Fowey on the passenger ferry, a walk through the town and returning on the car ferry. The car ferry, one and a half miles away, gives easy access to Fowey. In the summer Fowey is a bustling coastal town with a magnificent natural harbour visited by many yachts. It has lots of interesting restaurants and shops. The Fowey Regatta in August is a popular event as is the literature and music festival in May. You can go on a Day Trip to Mevagissey on the ferry from Fowey. The fishing villages of Looe and Polperro are also close by. Looe, has the usual tourist shops and restaurants including some good fish and chip shops. It has a sandy beach, reached by a walk through the town. You can also walk along the harbour side and watch the fishing boats.Children enjoy crabbing here. Polperro is a picturesque fishing village with lots of character cottages on narrow streets leading to the pretty harbour full of fishing boats. Lerryn, famous for its stepping stones and pretty riverside walks is only a few miles away. There are several pubs in the area serving good food. The nearest is The Old Ferry in at Bodinnick which is located just by the ferry to Fowey. It has a high level restaurant overlooking Fowey harbour.

Jesteśmy bardzo zadowoleni, właściciele super, zawsze gotowi do pomocy. Czuliśmy się bardzo swobodnie. Największa atrakcja dla dzieci to basen - super pomysł. Polecamy innym.

Quiet and relaxing break!

  • 2 of 5

Had a lovely peaceful week in Colquite cottage just after Easter with my family and two dogs. The weather was kind which meant we were able to do some good walks in the area! There is easy access to the south west coast path and lots of footpaths near to the cottage. The owners have put together an information guide with maps/walks and lists of dog friendly beaches!

The cottage is well equipped and comfortable and the secure spacious garden was great for our mutts!

Thanks for a lovely stay!

Peaceful rural retreat

  • 4 of 5

A well equipped cottage in a peaceful setting. Enjoyed the pool very much (albeit small it was refreshing and fun on a hot day) and the gardens are beautifully kept. Well positioned for exploring the south coast of Cornwall and it's picturesque villages. The cottage is a good size for a family with kids or for two couples sharing, as we were. Each couple had its own bathroom so we were able to have privacy when necessary. Thoroughly enjoyed Colquite Cottage and would definitely return if Cornwall calls.

Beautiful well equipped cottage

  • 4 of 5

Most enjoyable peaceful, relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting. Owners could not be any more helpful, they even provided a paddling pool for our small granddaughter to use on a hot afternoon. We recommend this cottage.

About Sylvia Smith

Mike and Sylvia are both retired and enjoy living in Cornwall. We enjoy walking and are very happy to give advise to our guests concerning local walks and other attractions. There are maps and Walking Books available.

We try to be helpful, welcoming but unintrusive.

Sylvia Smith purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Sylvia Smith chose Fowey

We loved the area on our first visit and the cottage sold itself with its views.

We particularly like this area as it is easily accessible from the A38 (only 35 minutes from the Tamar Bridge) yet its very secluded. There is little traffic on the local roads even in the height of summer.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is in a beautiful quiet location where it is easy to relax and recharge.It is convenient for the Cornish coast, the moors, National Trust Properties and Cornish Gardens. Its very safe for children and pets.
