The Cornwall region

Our location in mid-Cornwall makes us ideally situated for touring the south and north coasts, as well as wonderful places to visit and numerous pubs and restaurants for food and drink. There is always plenty to do and see. Close by are golden sandy beaches, coves to explore, scenic coastal paths to walk, beautiful Cornish gardens, National Trust properties, quaint fishing villages, river trips, ample golf courses to choose from and, of course, the famous Eden Project plus much much more…

Golant

Golant has an excellent riverside pub which serves fantastic food, small hotel (Cormorant Hotel) with restaurant facilities and facilities for boat launching. 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. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes, and ferries link Fowey to Polruan & Bodinnick. The famous Daphne du Maurier Festival of Arts & Literature is held every May and features various events and artists. Fowey Regatta & Carnival week is held in August and there is plenty of fun and entertainment for all the family.

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.

Restormel Castle The 12th Century castle, originally built by the Normans, lies to the north of Lostwithiel town. The grounds are ideal for picnics with splendid views across wooded valleys.

Mevagissey is an attractive 15th Century fishing village with its own small working harbour. It has pretty tiny streets; you can browse the gift shops and there are many restaurants serving local fish dishes. There is the Fowey to Mevagissey Ferry that takes about 45 minutes.

Looe is a busy Cornish fishing port and still operates a fish auction market weekdays. It also has a beach and is popular for crabbing, or you can meander through the streets and visit the gift shops.

Polperro is a gem with its quaint narrow streets and busy harbour for boat trips, and has a small beach at low tide. You can take a ride to and from the car park by horse drawn carriage to save on the walking.

The Eden Project. Three gigantic biomes in a former Cornish Clay pit with stunning exotic plants and wonderful architecture. This is certainly a must to visit and is one of Cornwall's top visitor attractions.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Once lost for 75 years under bramble and ivy this has been restored to one of the top gardens in Cornwall - well worth a visit and also has an excellent farm shop of local produce. Lanhydrock House near Bodmin A National Trust property dating from the 17th Century. A Victorian country house set in woods and parkland. The garden is renowned for its beautiful Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Camellias.

Pencarrow House & Gardens. A magnificent historic Georgian manor house with charm and character for you to visit.

Bodmin & Wenford Steam Raiway. A 6 mile heritage railway offers a nostalgic countryside trip on steam hauled trains.

Truro is Cornwall's bustling Cathedral City with its Georgian cobbled streets, and is excellent for shopping. It has the Hall for Cornwall theatre and museum. The beautiful Cathedral is well worth a visit.

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.

“An unusual house for a special holiday”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2015

Loved the house, loved the area and had a great time enjoying our walks. One of the rooms had a four-poster bed and you had stunning views of the river from the deck area.

We are pleased that you enjoyed "The Sunday House' and the area. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

“Converted church in Golant”

Reviewed 27 Mar 2015

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.

“What a fabulous home with everything you could need”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2011

We really enjoyed our time at the Sunday House, we were holidaying with my parents (in their 60's) my brothers (in their 30's) and myself and my 3 boys, 2,7 and 11 years. There was plenty of space for us all and the boys loved their room with the Wii. I would highly recommend the Sunday House and cannot wait to revisit! Karen Unwin
