Carry morning coffee out onto the wrought iron balcony and watch the boats come and go in the lively harbour below you. Your four-storey townhouse is much more than a retreat between excursions, with a blend of new and vintage style giving a fresh but homely feel.Ferry over to Polruan on the opposite headland, stroll to Readymoney Cove and St Catherine’s Castle on the edge of town. For fuller day trips you can hire a boat to whisk you down to the beach at Polridmouth or further along the coast, setting you up for a scenic hike back along the coastal path. There’s even the full 27 miles of the Saint’s Way, running across Cornwall from Fowey to Padstow, if you want a challenge.Afternoons of board games and reading in the long lounge blur into an early evening bottle of wine on the sun deck or lively preparations round the chunky kitchen range with something freshly-caught. This is a fun house for a group of friends or for a family reunion.
