LOCATION
The waterside village of Golant is situated on the west bank of the Fowey River and is a popular place to live. It has a 13th century Parish Church dedicated to St Sampson, The Fisherman’s Arms Pub, the Cormorant Hotel, and a retail art gallery. The village has an inner harbour with boat moorings which gives access to the estuary. In the summer the river is a hive of boating activity.

The ancient Stannary town of Lostwithiel is about 5 miles to the north west. Fowey Harbour offers excellent facilities for the keen yachtsman, and for the walker there are many miles of nearby footpaths often in the ownership of the National Trust. There are several excellent golf courses within easy reach, many world class gardens are to be found in the immediate area and the fascinating Eden Project with its futuristic biomes is just a few miles away. There are good road links to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway links to London, Paddington, can be made locally at Par and St. Austell and there are flights to London from Newquay.

The historic naval post of Plymouth is 36 miles away and offers extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities including three theatres, Drakes Circus shopping centre, many sporting facilities and a fine university. The Barbican area has retail art galleries, numerous bars and eating places including the Barbican Kitchen, River Cottage Canteen at Royal William Yard and Gary Rhodes at the Plymouth Dome. The port has regular cross-Channel ferry services to Brittany and northern Spain. There is also a mainline railway service from Plymouth to London Paddington.

THE PROPERTY
An extended five bedroom house set in a magnificent position on the edge of Golant, a few miles from Fowey. The house overlooks its one acre gardens, described as a mini Heligan, that lead down to the water and has spectacular views of the Fowey estuary.

Orginally a small cottage, the property maximises its location with balconies and a huge terrace that have stunning estuary views. There are three floors with comfortable and adaptable accommodation.

OUTSIDE
The gardens surrounding Rose Cottage Tanhay are a plant lover’s paradise. Set in just over one acre of grounds, the terraced gardens step down to the edge of the River Fowey. Large lawn areas are surrounded by planting and established trees, including a hundred year old Mulberry. A magnificent collection of exotic sub-tropical plants, including palms and bananas, have created a tropical corner which is complimented by two lily ponds. Other rare specimens include the New Zealand collection with tree ferns, NZ evergreen beech and Totura, a rare species of conifer. There is a large plantation of rhododendron, camellias and azaleas which provides a spectacular display in the spring time.

OUTBUILDINGS
Next to the house is a single storey outbuilding which is split into an office, den and wine store. A modern detached triple garage is located at the end of the drive with a large log store and a first floor one bedroom apartment. This has a large balcony and wide estuary views. Also located in the garden is a large workshop/store (9m x 5m) with its own terrace.
