Andrea, Staying at Creek House
Creek House - Moonlight on the creek.
Creek House has views that are unparalleled. The tranquility and beauty of the famous Pill Creek is exceptional.
This south facing holiday home overlooks the creek and offers easy access via the garden gate to the water’s edge for crabbing, swimming, kayaking or using your own boat on the house’s private mooring.
The holiday home offers four comfortable bedrooms with three bathrooms and two sitting rooms. The sheltered tidal Pill Creek leads out into the sweep of the Carrick Roads and downriver past Trelissick, King Harry Ferry towards Malpas and Truro. The Carrick Roads provides some of the best sailing waters in the UK centring around Falmouth which has recently been voted the fourth most desirable town in the UK to live in.
A short walk across a field takes you to Loe Beach with the opportunity to rent kayaks, dinghies, utilise the sailing school or just watch the day go by at the friendly cafe. The beautiful gardens and woodland walks along the estuary at Trelissick House and excellent cafe are extremely close. The city of Truro is four miles by road and Falmouth ten miles.
The popular Punch Bowl and Ladle thatched pub which dates back in parts to the fifteenth century, lies approximately three-quarters of a mile distant and serves good food and local ales.
There is a gate from the parking area and eleven, fairly steep, stone steps down to the patio area and door into the hall.

Garden and exterior
Long balcony that runs along the facade of the length of the house overlooking a two tiered lawn and garden. A gate at the bottom of the garden leads to the creek, (excellent for crabbing).
The outside area is ideal for BBQ’s and al fresco dining, and there is a large dining table outside to sea up to 12. A BBQ is provided. Seating area, perfect for observing the comings and goings of the creek.
There are quite a few steps and some steep areas, so the garden is not suitable for children under five or those with mobility issues.
Mooring & waterside
Access to the water and creekside is via a gate at the bottom of the garden. A mooring can be made available for hire with prior arrangement.
For two cars adjacent to the exterior wall of the house, on the side of a minor ‘B’ road. An additional car or two can park in the Church car park, 150 yards away for a fee of £2 per day, per car. Please park considerately and put a note on your dashboard to say where you are staying and which days you have paid for.
Creek House is situated in the exclusive, waterside village of Feock, just ten minutes from Cornwall’s capital, Truro and fifteen from the harbourside town of Falmouth.
Less than half a mile from the house is Loe Beach Boat Hire, Loe Beach Watersports Centre and Loe Beach Café. The café is open Easter to September and well recommended. Loe Beach Boat Hire offers hire of several types of craft including motor boats, kayaks, sailing dinghies and rowing boats.
Loe Beach Watersports Centre is an RYA Training Centre offering Learn to Sail, Learn to Windsurf, Learn to Kayak, Powerboat Courses, Youth Clubs, Multi Activity Days, Team Building and Corporate Events.
Within two miles is a general stores/post office and fuel station at Playing Place, a public house, ‘The Punchbowl and Ladle’, the National Tust gardens of Trelissick and the King Harry Car Ferry which allows quick and easy access to St.Mawes and the Roseland.
From the house are a number of idyllic riverside walks that are sure to be enjoyed by all, especially those with four legs.
