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. The two-bedroom stone cottage combines rustic original features such as the low beams, with contemporary décor. You’ll pore over 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 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

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
