Also within the village is an Art gallery displaying local artists work. Golant has around 110 dwellings with a population of circa 220 people. It has a 13th century Parish Church dedicated to St Sampson. The Saints Way Path is located in the village of Golant which provides spectacular scenery for walks along the river Fowey and leads to all the coastal paths. Golant offers wonderful opportunities for sailing, boating, walking, hiking and nature enthusiasts. Golant is only 3 miles from the picturesque harbour town of Fowey, which can be reached by road (3 miles) or by boat (2 miles) along the beautiful River Fowey.
Fowey with its unspoilt narrow streets offering a variety of unique shops, quality boutiques, delightful galleries, inns and restaurants, as well as sailing and fishing. Boat hire is available in Fowey. Fowey is also mecca for yachting, it has a natural harbour and is a haven for sailing; river trips depart daily.

The famous Daphne du Maurier Festival of Arts & Literature is held every May and features various events and artists.

Lostwithiel lies at the end of the Fowey valley and was Cornwall's capital town back in the 13th Century. Home to several good restaurants and the heart of Cornwall's antique industry, is a short drive and can also be reached by boat. Renowed for its variety of antique shops, old buildings and tudor bridge. It hosts regular auctions and antiques fairs.
Charlestown has an attractive Georgian harbour with lock gate. The village is the home of several square rigged sailing ships which can often be seen in the harbour. It is a well known location for filming all over the world. The Shipwreck and Heritage Centre offers visitors a fascinating insight into the history of Charlestown and shipwrecks.

Padstow & Rock on the north coast is very popular with cyclists who ride along the Camel trail from Wadebridge, following the estuary with abundant wildlife and wonderful scenery and, of course, you can dine in the famous Rick Stein restaurant.
Today most places are touched by the commercial world, Golant and its surrounding villages, Fowey, Lostwithiel, Charlestown, Polruan, Looe, Lerryn and Polperro still remain beautiful, quaint and antiqued to ensure and offer escapism.

"Converted church in Golant"
We drove down from Sussex and arrived late at night at the Sunday House. Turning off of the main road we drove down a steep lane covered by trees and arrived in the sleepy fishing village called Golant. If Bilbo Baggins had walked up the road I would not have been surprised. Golant is the sort of place where the world stops...zero mobile reception and the possibility to relax and hear the silence. The house is a converted church with very tall ceilings and the owners have cleverly worked out how to place 3 bedrooms and a kids "den/bedroom" into the old stone building. Golant is on an estuary and be careful when you park your car near the pub 100 meters away from the house...the tide can rise and "wash" your car. The house is cosy and has all of the mod cons and my only negative point was that the church organ does not work! The incredible Eden Project is nearby and we visited the beautiful beach called Lantic. You can hire sea kayaks at the bottom of the lane near the water and explore the estuary.
Thank you for your review. We truly hope you enjoyed your stay at the Sunday House. Since your last visit there is a new cell phone tower nearby and mobile phone reception is available in the village. Thank you for choosing the Sunday House, as your luxury Cornish Retreat.
