Location and Surrounding Area
Along the lane and over an enchanting humpback bridge is the head of Polwheveral Creek, where at high tide visions of ‘Swallows and Amazons’ will form as you watch the wildlife that makes home on the river. A slow amble up a steep lane, across rolling fields and through woodland will see you out to Scott’s Quay.
Three-hundred yards from home is the ever-popular Trengilly Wartha Inn, for filling food and drink guaranteed to be served with a winning Cornish welcome. Just fifteen minutes from home by foot and you’ll find yourself at Potager Garden, an organic café and workshop venue where you can relax in one of the hammocks, play ping-pong or badminton, or explore wild and wonderful flora in the heavenly garden.
The culture and the culinary creativity of the harbourside town of Falmouth is only a short hop away – just twenty minutes by car. This diverse and characterful town steeped in maritime history hosts Cornwall’s best independent shops, cafés and restaurants. And you can easily explore the local landscape further from the water. Catch a ferry across to the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, or meander instead along the Fal and Helford rivers to discover creeks and coves and crystal-clear waters.
Beside Nancenoy Cottage sits Nancenoy Farmhouse. When booked together, a gate can be unlocked to join the two gardens. Combined, the properties sleep up to fifteen and provide a sprawling country haven for two or more families. On its own, however, Nancenoy Cottage pleasures in its privacy and you’ll sense only the slightest of impact from neighbours.
