Dog-sitting service

If you bring your dog and are visiting an attraction which does not accept dogs you are welcome to leave your four-legged friend with the owner Debbie and her labradoodle, Rufus. We are also on hand to tell you all about the local walks and even give you an escorted tour if you want.If you would like to take a picnic lunch with you that can be arranged too.

A Cornish artist’s retreat

Napier Cottage has a wonderful summerhouse in the hillside garden overlooking the river – a perfect artist’s retreat – there is even an easel on hand. The summerhouse is the perfect place to chill out with a glass of wine and watch the world go by on the river.


What visitors say:

“Debbie was a perfect host, friendly, chatty and genuinely interested in the long distance walk that we were on. Her cottage was very pretty and stones throw from the waterfront and pub, with lovely views over the Fowey estuary from our bedroom window. Our only regret was that we couldn’t have stayed another night or two to enjoy the summerhouse with its BBQ patio which had an even more extensive view. A magical spot on a quiet summer’s evening. Oh – and a great cooked breakfast to send us on our way!”
