    “Penmarlam Quay cottage is on quite a steep road , we stayed for a week in January as 2 of us were training for Devizes to Westminster race .”

    We also took two Canadian canoes and paddled to Lleryn which was stunning. We walked some of south west coast path and had a couple of meals out . We didn’t use the car . The cottage was warm , cosy and well equipped. We had a lovely week, thank you

The property

Fowey 1.6 miles.

Penmarlam Quay Cottage is a pretty and well-presented, three-bedroom cottage resting on the scenery-engulfed Penmarlam Boat Park, near the picturesque coastal town of Fowey.

With activities and opportunities abounding the area, Penmarlam Quay Cottage is the perfect base for those who love watersports or fishing, as well as those that are just seeking a relaxing, Cornish getaway.

The inviting living/dining room beautifully combines all your home comforts with a true sense of character, emulated in the exposed stone feature wall originating from the 14th century.

If you’re craving some peace and quiet, take yourself into the snug room, adorned with plush seating, a TV and woodburning stove - what more could you want after a tiring day of trekking the breath-taking South West Coast Path?

Moving through the property, discover the well-equipped kitchen, complete to an immaculate standard, with all the appliances required to ease your self-catered stay.

Penmarlam Quay Cottage also benefits from two separate staircases leading to the first floor, one of which presents a superb king-size bedroom featuring its own handy en-suite shower room.

Discover a further king-size and a double, both also boasting en-suite facilities and are dressed in a similarly tasteful standard.

Soak up the scorching summer sun in the garden, choosing from a wonderful lawn and a patio to make the most of the blissful evenings, or take a small stroll down to the Quay at the bottom of the hill, to take in the beautiful views over the river; owned by the Penmarlam Boat Park it is perfect for a quiet drink after your busy day watching the world go by.

You could easily spend a relaxing week here without leaving this well-appointed complex, offering a shop, cafe, boat launching, or fishing on the River Fowey.

Fowey itself is nothing short of magical with its quaint cottages, fine architecture and breath-taking coastline.

Whilst some of Cornwall's most-loved destinations reside only a short distance away nearby; tour the independent stores and eateries in St Austell or head for the beautiful village of Mevagissey, home to Mevagissey Aquarium and Mevagissey Harbour Wall, where you can admire the bobbing fishing boats and the far-reaching coastline.

Experience all of this and more, with a stay at Penmarlam Quay Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

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!
