  • “This was quite possibly the best holiday let we have stayed in.”

    The situation was perfect, - views, peace and comfort. There was everything we needed and the hosts were friendly and approachable but never intrusive. That the weather was glorious was a bonus, but we would have enjoyed staying here had it been raining!

The property

For those seeking a peaceful haven this must be the perfect retreat.

Amongst the beautiful landscape of the South Cornwall coast, the history of Castle Dore stretches over thousands of years.

Now fields and woodland stretch endlessly, populated with local wildlife such as deer, foxes, rabbits and badgers.

Nearby is the idyllic village of Golant, where trips take you along the river or you can relax in the riverside pub.

A mile further the sailing town of Fowey with its historic port offers self hire boats, excellent restaurants, unique shops, galleries and beaches.

Castle Dore is perfectly located for beautiful walks, cycle trails and exploring Cornwall's attractions including the Eden Project.

This superb barn conversion, situated near a small quiet farm, has been transformed into light, airy reverse style accommodation with captivating views over the glorious surrounding countryside.

Solid wood floors and vaulted ceilings create a spacious atmosphere with an open plan living area.

The comfortable lounge benefits from light flooding through doors that lead onto the private balcony where you can enjoy the tranquillity of the valley and river below.

Bedrooms are spacious and elegantly styled.

The large patio and private enclosed garden is perfect for alfresco dining and barbecues.

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
