A striking 19-century boathouse in Golant, overlooking the scenic Cornish coast

Sitting on the banks of the River Fowey, Oakenhurst is an eye-catching stone and wood boathouse that boasts glorious 180-degree water-facing views. Ideally located in the pretty village of Golant, less than five miles from the centre of Fowey, it sits in the 'South Coast Eastern' Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers a top base to explore South Cornwall from.

Ascend the wooden steps and enter Oakenhurst, where you're welcomed by a light-flooded open-plan living space with floor-to-ceiling windows, striking oak beams and elevated views of the river. Prepare meals in the well-equipped kitchen, where you'll find an electric oven and hob, two fridges, a freezer, microwave and dishwasher, and enjoy them in the dining or sitting area while admiring the scenic vistas. Additional noteworthy features include a second cosy lounge and underfloor heating.

Sleeping two guests, Oakenhurst is suited to a couple or a pair of pals: the upstairs mezzanine bedroom – aka 'the ropeloft' – comes complete with a super king that can be made into two singles on request and an en-suite with a bath. For an extra-long sleep, use the sail at the front of the mezzanine as a curtain. Downstairs, you'll also find a separate shower room.

Out and about, explore the river by kayak before heading to the nearby Fishermans Arms for lunch or dinner. Other top food options include North Street Kitchen and Fitzroy. You’re also perfectly positioned for touring the coast and countryside, with Readymoney Cove, the Eden Project, Fowey Aquarium and Polperro Beach within easy reach.



Open all year.


From £1,046 to £2,328 a week.
