About Quay Cottage

Perfect for kayakers, this river-side cottage has its own quay for your kayak or canoe.

Live life on the edge in this stunning quayside cottage. It rises from the densely wooded banks of the Fal Estuary and perches right on the water’s edge, with the Trelissick estate just behind. This two-bedroom stone cottage combines rustic original features such as the low beams, with contemporary décor. You’ll love the large bathroom upstairs, with its luxury roll top bath that overlooks the river below. 

Sit back in its enclosed garden and watch the boats sail by. You’ll have your own private quay so bring your own small boat or hire one locally. Trips upstream on the river Fal will take you through its winding creeks. Alternatively, catch the nearby King Harry Ferry for trips down to St Mawes, the Roseland Peninsula and Falmouth. 

If you find yourself on the Roseland Peninsula, be sure to loop onto the South West Coast Path for long hikes along the headlands. Walk to St Anthony Head for stunning seascapes or Portscatho for a glimpse of a small, traditional fishing village.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
