St Cloud sits high above the River Fowey with superb views down to the water where boats bob on their moorings in summer and wading birds feed on the sand flats at low tide. Set above the sleepy village of Golant, St Cloud is found along a leafy lane that meanders past 13th Century St Sampson Church and continues downhill to a children's playground and popular village pub, all bordering the tiny inner harbour. Providing flexible accommodation, there is a ground floor single bedroom and cloakroom, and three bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower-room upstairs. The sitting-room's open fire provides cosy warmth on cooler evenings, and the double-glazed conservatory new build for 2015 allows you to enjoy the lovely views of the garden and river whatever the weather.
This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with footpaths winding along riverbanks and the pretty sailing towns of Fowey and Polruan, linked by car and pedestrian ferries, just a couple of miles away. There are beaches at Fowey, Par and Polkerris, several renowned restaurants within five miles, the historic port of Charlestown, featured in Poldark, and the Eden Project and Heligan Gardens only slightly further away. The ancient stannary town of Lostwithiel, known as the antiques capital of Cornwall, has an intriguing selection of antiques and vintage shops, fairs and auctions; there is certainly something enjoyable to keep everybody happy within a very short distance of this lovely house. This stunning part of Cornwall begs to be explored, and St Cloud provides a wonderful base for doing just that. This charming Victorian semi-detached house is perfect for families and is also available at a discounted rate to parties of four or less out of the main season using Bedrooms 2 and 3 only. BT Infinity WiFi is provided at this property.
