Come and treat yourself to a wonderful holiday in the peaceful creekside village of Golant on the banks of the River Fowey. With the most gorgeous views of the tidal waters over to the ancient woodland beyond that will have you mesmerised from the minute you arrive, River View Terrace certainly lives up to its name. It's a water lover's paradise and a fabulous year-round retreat to explore what has to be one of the prettiest parts of Cornwall.

Spend your days kayaking and paddle-boarding up the river, strolling along the riverbanks through ancient woodland, soaking up the sailing scene in nearby Fowey or simply kicking back on the terrace drinking in those glorious views. Holidays don't get don't much better than this.

Enjoying a prime elevated position, this mid-terrace retreat, has cosy and comfortable interiors creating a delightful home-from-home atmosphere. The living accommodation sits on the ground floor and the large bay window in the sitting-room perfectly frames the marvellous views, so if the weather is a little temperamental you can seek refuge inside and still enjoy the wonderful surroundings. Conjure up culinary delights with the best local produce in the kitchen/dining-room, best served up in the terraced garden with those breathtaking views creating the perfect backdrop. There are three bedrooms set over two floors, each floor having its own bathing facilities, offering a degree of privacy. Lazy holiday lie-ins will definitely be the order of the day in bedroom one, as waking up to that view will make it difficult to get out of bed, so breakfast in bed is a must!

Although children under 8 are regrettably not accepted at this property, babies up to six months are welcome.

Want to catch up with the locals, it's only a short walk to the Fisherman's Arms, a traditional village pub that serves up a warm welcome, and if you enjoy messing about on the water, head to the Boatshed on the waterfront for kayak and paddle board hire as well as wildlife and waterfront tours. If you prefer to stay on terra firma, there are miles of wonderful walks along the river, through the woods and beyond for you to explore.

You can follow the footpath or pop in the car to the trendy sailing town of Fowey with its narrow streets lined with independent shops and great eateries, and a little further down the coast is the village of Charlestown where historic tall ships rest in the harbour. For garden enthusiasts the iconic Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a must, as are the gardens at Lanhydrock where you can also visit the historic house, wander the parkland or perhaps take to two wheels along their network of cycle trails - all in all, there's a world of adventures on your doorstep!
