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 courtyard and explore the pockets of seating areas in which to 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. The summer cabin is perfectly placed at the top of the meadow and ensures a tranquil spot away from the hubbub of the barn (available from May - end of September). 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! If walking is on the agenda, breathe new life into your walking boots and hit the river bank trails, the circular Hall Walk is highly recommended. St Austell Bay is the gateway to the stunning Roseland Peninsula with a collection of sandy beaches, crystal clear swimming waters and coastal town of St Mawes.
