The property

'Time and Tides' is a beautifully presented elegant, elevated property with captivating estuary views overlooking the River Fowey.

This stylish wow-factor holiday home sits in an enviable waterside setting in Golant, a sleepy Cornish fishing village with narrow lanes and higgledy piggledy cottages.

Soak up the Cornish sunshine and the enchanting river views from the gorgeous sun deck at the front of the property.

Inside, the accommodation seamlessly blends old with new to create a super comfy shabby chic style home from home with an interior designed for maximum relaxation.

The generous open plan living room has a superb picture window framing the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beyond and a wood burner for fireside cosiness - what better place for a hot chocolate and to settle down with a good book during the cooler months.

The ultra modern kitchen at one end makes a fantastic social space to cook and eat, or relax in sitting room after strolling back from the Fisherman's Arms Inn which overlooks The Pill, a tidal lagoon which was created when the Fowey to Lostwithiel railway was built.

All bedrooms have been thoughtfully designed and all have stylish en-suite shower rooms, the master having the added benefit of a bath with shower over.

Wake up to wonderful river and countryside views from both the master and second double bedroom.

The third bedroom has zip and link beds which can be made to a superking on request. 'Time and Tides' is perfectly placed to explore; hire a canoe or kayak from the estuary beach below and discover tranquil creeks and smugglers caves - you may even be lucky enough to spot seals, herons or kingfishers on the way. Fowey can be reached in just ten minutes by car and is one of Cornwall's most popular yachting destinations and home of the celebrated author Daphne du Maurier.

Evocatively picturesque and rich in history, the towns narrow streets brim with appealing shops, historic pubs, restaurants and cafes.

Enjoy a water based activity, pleasure boat trip or visit the world famous biomes at the Eden Project.

Golf enthusiasts can tee off at one of the five golf clubs nearby - the courses at Carlyon Bay and Porthpean both have the most amazing sea views.

With Par Sands, Polruan and Readymoney Cove all within easy reach, this is one holiday home guests will want to return to again and again.

About the location

FOWEY

Polkerris 2.7 miles; Polperro 8 miles; Eden Project 2 miles.

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
