Napier Cottage has the most amazing views of the river, boats and countryside, in the idyllic village Side view of Napier Cottage (2)of Golant just down the river from Fowey.

It is ideal for those who want to enjoy the Fowey area but want to get away from the crowds in the height of the season and car parking is cheaper – even free at certain times of year.

You can walk along the Saints Way into Fowey (about an hour taking you through beautiful woods and passed the famous Saw Mill recording studio) or take a ten minute drive.

An added bonus is the summerhouse located in the hillside garden – perfect for budding artists and birdwatchers and you may even see the resident seal. It is a skip and a jump from the local pub, the Fishermans Arms and the base for award-winning Encounter Cornwall where visitors can enjoy their holiday kayaking to Fowey or along the picturesque creeks to the village of Lerryn.

Highlights of the year on the River Fowey are the Fowey Regatta and Sailing Week and the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature (previously known as the Daphne Du Maurier Festival). Fowey boasts a wide range of designer shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and pubs full of character.

A passenger ferry makes regular trips across the River Fowey to the adjacent village of Polruan and a car ferry gives easy access to the popular resorts of Polperro and Looe. Just 38 miles south of Plymouth there is easy access to the national rail network from the nearby town of Par. It is a great area for cycling and is just 15 minutes drive to the world-famous Eden Project.

Napier Cottage is among the few b and bs in Fowey and Golant which welcome dogs.
