  • “Island house was just like it was in the photos.”


    We stayed here 6th September for a week and it was just perfect, we explored many of the surrounding areas from Golant and were lucky with the weather. We ate in the pub which was a stone throw away and dog friendly. We only saw 1 freight train in a week, it was very peaceful by the river. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with everything that you could possibly need, the welcome pack was useful but would have been better with a cream tea. We loved our time in Island House and if we came back to Golant would definitely book again.

The property

In Golant, on the edge of the harbour and surrounded on three sides by water at high tide, a fabulous cottage, aptly named Island House.

The location is superb, with water views from every window and from the first floor the river’s moorings can be seen beyond the Victorian railway embankment along which an occasional freight train trundles with china clay bound for Fowey.

Enclosed, mainly cobbled pretty garden around two sides of the house with sun terrace (table/chairs, barbecue) for alfresco dining at any time of day.

Dinghy mooring available nearby (16' open boat can be hired and delivered from Fowey).

Step from front door into bright spacious kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with views.

Step down to large beamed living room with limestone-flagged floor (rugs), woodburner, TV/DVD/Blu-ray/PVR.

Charming study with desk.

Washer-drier in cupboard.

Twisting stairs (stairgate) from the living room up to two bedrooms (TVs) - a pretty double (5' bed), and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

From the kitchen, second flight of stairs (stairgate) up to a smart double bedroom (5' bed) with TV, French windows to balcony and the best views across the estuary, plus en suite shower-room (suite).

An exceptional waterside property in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Golant: small waterside village (good pub, fine church, boat/kayak hire) on the western bank of the beautiful River Fowey.

Fowey and Polkerris (pretty fishing hamlet with small harbour, beach), both 4 miles.

Fine cliff walks to Gribbin Head.

Nearby is Daphne du Maurier's former home, Menabilly, which inspired Manderley in ‘Rebecca’.

About the location


Fowey 4 miles; Charlestown 6.9 miles; St. Austell 7.7 miles

Perched on the river Fowey, Golant is a quaint Cornish waterside village offering a Fisherman’s arms Pub, the Comorant Hotel and Restaurant and a retail art gallery. This charming village, due to the stretch of the River Fowey Golant sits on, has inspired many writers including the author of “The Wind in the Willows”. Why not enjoy this picturesque river first hand and book a kayaking trip? Four miles away is the famous yachting village of Fowey which is bursting with character. Walk down the enchanting cobbled streets accompanied by Georgian historic buildings. This unique village is home to an array of shops, pubs and restaurants, with plenty to offer for everyone all year round. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
