A detached house situated in an elevated, rural position with south facing gardens and grounds, just A short distance from idyllic pont, boat launching facilities and coastal walks.
Pont is a small hamlet with a collection of individual properties and lies alongside a stream which runs to Pont Pill, a very pretty tidal creek. The villages of Polruan and Bodinnick are a short distance away and, for the boat owner, 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 immediate area is surrounded by many miles of wonderful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Lantic Bay is an approximate half hour walk from the property along footpaths and quiet lanes and is the nearest beach to Penpont.
The village of Bodinnick with the car ferry provides regular access to Fowey is approximately 1 mile away. 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. Once away from the immediate local lanes, there are good road connections to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway connections (London Paddington) can be made at a number of local stations (Par, Liskeard & Lostwithiel).
