Sitting pretty in fabulous Feock, Blue Cottage is just moments from the beach and serene waters of the Fal River Estuary. Experience a Swallows and Amazons style break at this homely cottage which is just a few minutes' walk from Loe Beach. Overlooking the tree lined waters of the Carrick Roads, this pebbly and sandy stretch has a great little cafe offering breakfasts, yummy lunches and ice creams during the summer months. It is also home to a fantastic watersports centre so bring your wetsuit and learn to sail, windsurf or paddleboard. If you prefer something more sedate you can hire a kayak, rowing boat or even a power boat and head out to explore the incredible waterways in your own time, stopping off at one of the stunning waterside inns for refreshment along the way!
The Carrick Roads also have a superb network of ferries linking Truro, Falmouth, St Mawes and some smaller villages so leave the car behind and travel by boat. One ferry departs from the nearby National Trust owned Trelissick Gardens so it is a great excuse to explore them too. A trip to Falmouth is highly recommended; with sandy beaches, some fabulous restaurants, boutique shops and the Maritime Museum, a day may not be enough.
Tucked away in this pretty village, Blue Cottage offers simple homely accommodation. The snug sitting room has an open fire and there is a Rayburn in the dining room keeping the cottage cosy at any time of year. Upstairs the three bedrooms comprise one with king size bed, one twin and one with bunks although we do ask that guest numbers are limited to five. The mature garden at the front of the cottage is private and perfect for breakfast alfresco or simply relaxing with a good book.

Truro is the retail centre of Cornwall with a good range of independent shops as well as national stores all within a compact city centre. With its eclectic range of art galleries, bars, restaurants, cinema, theatre, museum and outstanding cathedral this small city is a superb year round destination. Steeped in history and intriguing architecture there is always plenty to do and see. Just meandering through the Georgian cobbled streets is a pleasure in itself. With many peaceful parks all within a short stroll from the centre it is a most relaxing city to visit. A wonderful day trip can be had from Truro to Falmouth along the stunning Fal estuary with many options to disembark and pick up the boat later along the scenic river trip.
