In Feock, a stunning waterside house, designed to make the most of wonderful views, spacious rooms and large windows. The enclosed garden is mostly lawn, with flower beds, fruit trees and patio (table/chairs, barbecue). Kennels available. Kayaks, boats and bicycles can be hired, by arrangement. Moorings for boats and kayaks via gated access to Restronguet Creek and the Carrick Roads waterways.
Cornwall’s ‘Med’: here is Cornwall at its warmest, most sheltered; of creeks and tidal waters penetrating deep inland, deep in woods, silent except for birdsong; of wonderful gardens growing things that live nowhere else outdoors in England (marvellous in rhododendron, camellia, magnolia time, from March to end of May especially); of sailing boats everywhere decorating the sea; of harbour villages where the light is Mediterranean - dazzling in the sunshine. And really very little that is ugly has been allowed to be built.
Here is Truro, Cornwall’s (small) capital, with its 20th century cathedral; Falmouth, resort town and cargo/cruise ship/yacht port, superbly sited; and the glorious Helford River. Trewithen, Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah, Heligan (Lost Gardens of) and Caerhays are among the finest gardens. In the very middle of Cornwall, Lanhydrock house is very special, so is its garden. Not the greatest area for beaches, but good sandy ones near Veryan and Portscatho, in St Mawes, and around Falmouth and the Helford River’s mouth. Not to be missed is St Just-in-Roseland’s churchyard; nor - within easy reach - is The Eden Project.
