A charming detached 3 bedroom house, situated in an elevated position with lovely views to the river and across to fowey. Mature gardens to front and further area of ground to the rear of the property.
Bodinnick lies in a Conservation Area, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and adjoins National Trust land. The famous and very beautiful Hall Walk, a footpath which winds its way around the estuary to Polruan, starts just a stone’s throw from the property. The coast with a number of delightful sandy beaches is about 3 miles and, for the boat owner, nearby Penmarlam (operated by Fowey Harbour Commissioners) provides an excellent public access point to the sailing waters of the river/harbour and the open sea.
The ancient harbour side town of Fowey 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.
Located in the lower part of the village, the house is ideally situated to enjoy the views of the water and is just a stone's throw from the well known and beautiful walk along the estuary called Hall Walk.
Originally two cottages, the property dates back to circa early 1600's and retains many original features, including beautiful flagstone floor on the ground floor. Built onto rock at the rear, the property and gardens are south facing, attracting sun for the majority of the day and into the evening.
