The Property

Thought to have been built circa 1700's, this beautiful little cottage and its garden, lies on the south facing side of the valley. The accommodation comprises of a lounge with exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace that houses a wood burner and features a cloam oven, a kitchen diner, two double bedrooms and an upstairs bathroom. Outside, there is an elevated rear garden where views out to the harbour entrance and sea can be enjoyed as well as a parking space which is a rarity in the village. The cottage is also just a very short stumble up from The Old Ferry Inn!

Bodinnick lies on the south Heritage Coast, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within the Bodinnick conservation area. For the rambler, the famous and very beautiful Hall Walk is only two minutes away and winds its way around the estuary from Bodinnick to Polruan and for the boat owner, nearby Penmarlam provides an excellent public access point to the sailing waters of the river and harbour. The ancient port of Fowey is one of Cornwall’s most attractive ports and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants and pubs. A regular passenger/car ferry just down the hill from the cottage crosses the harbour into the town and runs throughout the year. There are good road connections from Bodinnick to the A38 and A30 while railway stations can be found at Par, Lostwithiel, Liskeard and Bodmin Parkway.
