A unique 350 year old cottage in the stunningly beautiful village of Golant overlooking the Fowey estuary, complete with grand piano and many owls – a place for interesting people and fun times!
** Just renovated with new lighting, central heating, curvy walls, carpets and decorations **
What people love:
"The feel of the place, which for me personally was very resonant"
"Lovely little cottage full of old character, great views, good parking, excellent WiFi"
Paradise Cottage is more than 350 years old – the oldest house in the village of Golant. It's made of cob – which is a technical term for rocks and earth – so the walls are curvy. It's where I grew up and where my bohemian parents lived – a place for music, conversations, art, poems. We've just refurbished it so all new lights, central heating, decorations and carpets!
You can use the whole house. And the garden as well. There's a lower and upper (!) patio – with a BBQ. We keep the recycling in the garage.
Interaction with guests
Sarah and David from Kings Concierge and Property Management (based in Fowey 3 miles away) are around to make sure you're settled in a resolve any issues. I'm also around to respond to messages and chip in with ideas of stuff to do locally although sometimes during the working day I may not be able to respond immediately so it's usually better to contact Sarah or David first.
Other things to note
There is a patio above the patio by the kitchen. It is called 'Lovers’ Leap' (after the poem). You start to get a view of the river over the roofs of the houses in front of us – a nice place for a morning coffee or evening gin & tonic.
If you go further up the garden you get to have an even better view of the river and the village as a whole.
We always find it frustrating if we have to buy oil, salt and pepper etc when I’m travelling. So feel free to use ours – and the herbs and spices, and vinegar, sauces etc. There’s also tea and coffee in the cupboard to the left and above the stove. If you use any other food or drink please replace it.
There are other hints and tips on the ParadiseGolant page on the well known social networking site with initials F & B which you can find with any popular search engine!
Pets are welcome – keep them downstairs please.
You are welcome to play the piano - no drinks or food on it – EVER!
Lots of outside space to smoke – but not in the house please.
Rubbish collection every Thursday morning – recycling every other Thursday.
Please clean the BBQ and the open fire if you use them – otherwise we'll have to recharge to you the extra cleaning fee(s) we will get charged for them.
You need to supervise children in the garden because of the drops near the lane and upper patio – don't go in or near the greenhouses. Don't let children in the garage please.
If you're playing music loud – or just being loud – after 11 at night then please close the doors to not disturb the neighbours. Once you've closed everything, you'll be able to be as loud as you like!
