The Location

Penmarlam Quay and Boat Park is owned by Fowey Harbour Commissioners and is situated in a stunning waterside location close to picturesque hamlet of Mixtow. There is beautiful scenery and lovely coastal walks through woodland and farmland and the pretty village of Bodinnick is just a short walk away.

The ancient harbour side town of Fowey, just a short hop across the river, is one of Cornwall's most attractive small ports and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants, pubs etc. It is particularly well known as a sailing centre and hosts a famous week long Regatta each year in August. There are good road connections from Bodinnick to the A38/A30, and then the motorway system. Railway stations can be found at Par, via the ferry, Lostwithiel, Liskeard and Bodmin Parkway.

The Property

Penmarlam Quay Cottage occupies an elevated position on the edge of the facility and has a lovely view through the trees and to the water beyond. It is ideally placed for someone whose passion is water sports, yachting or fishing. In addition to the unusual location the cottage is the only property on the river with the benefit of a 42 ft pontoon mooring for use (in perpetuity) in agreement with Fowey Harbour Commission. Please ask for further information.

It is believed that a building has stood on the site since c 1300 with the building originally converted in the 1970s. The current owner has extensively renovated and extended the property to provide a spectactular residence finished to a high standard and in a contemporary style, offering flexible and stylish accommodation arranged over two floors.

Many of the rooms have stunning views across countryside or towards the water.

On the ground floor bi folding doors open to an impressive living/dining room area with views towards the water. An attractive granite floor has underfloor heating and an oak staircase leads to the master bedroom suite. The stylish and well appointed kitchen has a number of integrated applicances, with granite worksurface and granite tiled floor. A cosy snug boasts a contemporary styled wood burning stove and a characterful staircase leads to the first floor.

From the snug, a staircase leads to the landing which opens to the two double bedrooms, both with fabulous en suite shower/bath rooms. A further, stylish oak staircase has been recently added, which leads from the living room to the spacious master bedroom with views over the garden and to the river and benefits from it's own en suite shower room.

Please see floor plan for accommodation layout and room sizes.


The property is approached over a shared driveway which has barrier access to enhance security to the area. The gravelled driveway can accommodate a number of vehicles or dinghy style boat and there is a double garage with further, considerable space underneath for further boat storage or workshop area. No expense has been spared, with a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system installed to ensure constant airflow.

The grounds are a delight, with a large paved terrace to the front of the property, ideal for those summer BBQs and a further area laid to lawn.
