In a desirable beachfront location overlooking a peaceful cove is Farthings, a charming cottage where you can relax, play on the sand, listen to the waves rolling onto the shoreline and explore this wonderful part of Cornwall.
Once upon a time the renowned writer Daphne du Maurier lived in the cottage opposite Farthings, so you can imagine how inspiring a place this is. With the beach just 30 yards away and breathtaking views from the cottage across Readymoney Cove, this is a tranquil and beautiful setting, and the property itself is well equipped with a cosy wood burner, four bedrooms, a variety of outdoor spaces and plenty of mod cons. This is a delightful holiday cottage in an idyllic location.

The National Trust Coastal Path is just opposite the cottage and the bustling town of Fowey (10 minutes away on foot) is full of cafes, bars, shops and restaurants, not to mention plentiful boats to admire and events like the Fowey Royal Regatta and the Daphne du Maurier literary festival. You could hire your own sailing boats and kayaks, or you could explore attractions like the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Other nearby coastal towns like Mevagissey, Carlyon Bay and Charlestown are well worth a visit.
By car you will need to travel via the M5 and the A30/A38. Fowey can also be reached by bus or ferry, and the nearest train stations are Par and St Austell.
