Come by boat! The cottage has its own private steps down to the water and a running line for boats up to 6 metres in length. Speak to the owners about hiring a kayak, paddle board or boat during your stay – if you bring your own SUP there’s plenty of open storage down here too. Meander down many steps (and under another house) to get to the wooden gate and the front door. The living and dining room is open plan, with two sets of french doors onto the front terrace; views are gorgeous from every room but this one takes the biscuit.
The galley kitchen is small but perfectly formed and Jo leaves you a bottle of wine. Bedrooms are upstairs and have the view plus extremely comfortable beds.
If you are stuck indoors then there’s a log-burner for chilly days (first logs on the house) and the mesmerising views across the water to Fowey. You can catch the passenger or car ferry and be there in 10 minutes for supper, or barbecue on your terrace at the front or back.
