About Quay CottagePerfect 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.
