Point, Unique Home Stays outside of the Cotswolds
Situated in the tiny creek-side hamlet of Point near Devoran, this superbly appointed cottage is positioned to take full advantage of the tremendous views down the river Carnon towards Restronguet Creek. At high tide, sipping a drink on the window seat in the sitting room, visitors might well think that they were actually afloat.
The setting is tranquil yet the cottage is within an easy drive of many of Cornwall's best attractions. Falmouth, 6 miles away, offers everything a sailor desires along with sandy beaches and good restaurants. The attractive county town of Truro, with its cathedral and fine Georgian architecture, is only three miles away. The famous Eden Project is less than an hour's drive, as are several of Cornwall's finest gardens (Heligan, Trelissick and Lanhydrock to name but three); as well as Land's End, the Lizard Peninsula and the countless beautiful beaches and magnificent stretches of the South West Coastal path. The north Cornish coast is only 40 minutes drive. Closer to home there is also much to explore in and around the Fal or Helford rivers and the Roseland peninsula.
The owners have taken enormous care in upgrading Lion Cottage to a very high standard. It offers truly luxurious accommodation for up to four people in three bedrooms in a magical waterside setting, with views out to the creek from almost every room.
