From your Holiday Door

The Willows is set within three acres of verdant meadows and established garden. Step outside from the kitchen or the front door, into the newly created luxury terrace with attractive water feature, al fresco kitchen and ample space to sit and relax. The elevated Moroccan inspired terrace welcomes the al fresco party atmosphere with ample seating for all with bright clashing pink, white and orange cushions. Soak up the sun or stoke up the chimnea as the evening cools. The garden brims with colour in all seasons as hydrangeas burst in blues, pinks and whites and wisteria beautifully borders the stone buildings. Follow the garden path to the gate and let children and dogs run free through the meadow offering views of the meandering River Fowey and attractive hamlet of St Winnow. If you can bare to leave your wonderland of Penquite, map out your days on the Cornish coast and explore this very special corner of Cornwall. The River Fowey is picture perfect as it wends its way through Golant and to the popular maritime town of Fowey. Fowey has long been a haven for hardy sailors and today combines the nautical appeal with chic cafes, artisan shops, cool bars and traditional Cornish pubs. For BBC's Poldark fans, head to the historic port of Charlestown where you may well catch a glimpse of the lights, camera, action with Ross and Demelza!
