The first thing you notice about Penpoll is the peace! Here you truly escape from the hustle and bustle of life - whatever the season - as Kingfishers dart in and out of the creek. It is a very special and much loved spot, where the choice is to enjoy the peace of the garden, and surrounding countryside, or to get involved in all the varied activities this beautiful part of the South Cornwall coast has to offer. There are stunning views of bird-life on the river and the surrounding countryside from the house and garden.<BR><BR>Recently refurbished, Penpoll is extremely comfortable, with an Aga and wood burner for cosy evenings. The four comfortable bedrooms - all with a view of the river - can accommodate two families of budding swallows and amazons. With dams in the creek to build, the large garden to explore, sailing l...

We spent a wonderful Easter break at Penpoll. It is just how described - a perfect country cottage in an idyllic setting, with everything you need for a self-catering stay. The cottage is cosy and welcoming, lovely comfy beds, a very well equipped kitchen and plenty of space for everyone. We were two families of four and we made ourselves...

I had high expectations for my stay in Penpoll and it really did exceed these. Penpoll is situated in a tiny hamlet. We loved the tranquility, the sounds of birdsong and nature. We chose it partly for its riverside setting, and it's in a very beautiful spot, a very magical setting. Staying in Penpoll is truly a place to escape...

There's everything you need in this house and it's in an idyllic setting. It's perfect for 2 families with up to 6 children or 3 families with 4 children. We stayed for a long weekend - 7 adults and 3 children. The house is well equipped and the owners have thought of everything. We'll not forget sitting on the upper...

About the neighbourhood
The working Harbour town of Fowey and the surrounding area is steeped in history, and made famous by the writings of Daphne du Maurier (see Rebecca's beach, Polridmouth 15mins from Penpoll), Sir Arthur Quiller Couch (sailing in Fowey Harbour). and Kenneth Williams, (Imagine Ratty and Mole from Wind in the Willows, as you canoe upriver for a picnic). <BR><BR>Favourite nearby beaches (within 15mins drive) include:<BR>Lantic Bay. A bit of a walk, and a steep climb up but so worth it!<BR>Talland Bay. Cafe & shop, rock pools and sandy beach<BR>Polridmouth. Daphne du Maurier's beach at Menabiliy. A 10 minute walk, but again, worth it!<BR>Polkerris. A true smuggler's cove beach, with pub and great restaurant right on the beach.<BR><B... more
