Riverside Cottage is located in the peaceful creekside hamlet of Coombe, a few miles to the south of the Cathedral city of Truro. It is an idyllic spot, with beautiful views over this magical part of the upper reaches of the Fal estuary. There is a network of footpaths around the area for you to explore this quite magical part of Cornwall. The location is very central within Cornwall and it is so easy to reach the north or south coasts from this lovely spot. The nearby King Harry Ferry will also take you across the main part of the River Fal to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula.

This luxury cottage, which is part of the famous Tregothnan Estate, has been refurbished during 2010 to very high standards and has great creek views from each room. The creek is quite tidal at this point, yet it is fascinating to watch the birdlife at all times. The Estate have spared no expense to ensure that the cottage meets the needs of the most discerning of guests. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and benefits from a separate utility area. The bedroom is very comfortable and the bathroom boasts a romantic roll-top bath. The separate lounge has a cosy wood burning stove which makes it a wonderful place to visit all year round.

First Floor: Double bedroom with Hypnos zip and link beds (not pictured) which can be made up as a 6' bed or as 3' single beds, bathroom with roll-top bath, separate shower.
