The Boathouse

The Boathouse

The Boathouse is a delightful, detached, very romantic, stylishly furnished, waterside holiday Cornish cottage situated on its own quay with water on three sides and all rooms have river views. Sit, glass in hand, in the comfort of the stunning conservatory and watch boats, birds and the wide stretches of the river flow gently past. This heavenly spot is set on the Cornish side of the Tamar in the peaceful village of Cargreen with glorious views from every room across the water to the rolling fields of Devon. St Mellion Golf & Country Club is a few minutes drive, further on are sandy beaches and excellent restaurants, with the Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the historic City of Plymouth, several National Trust properties and much more, all within easy reach of this idyllic haven.

  • Included: Bed linen (no towels except for overseas visitors), electricity and heating (night storage).
  • Security Deposit: £150 payable direct to owner.
  • Telephone: For incoming calls only. Mobile reception mixed.
  • Local Facilities: Small supermarket 3 miles. Waitrose 5 miles. Plymouth 7 miles. Beach at Downderry, 12 miles
  • Boating Facilities: This is an ideal location to bring your own dinghy or canoe. A one ton davit for lifting into the garden and space for a small boat trailer immediately in front of the house are available. There is a slipway alongside the house and steps leading from the garden directly to the river. For larger boats a nearby mooring buoy is available in the river, details from the owner.

Please Note: The estuary is not suitable for swimming. This property is not suitable for children under 5.
