In a secluded position on the Saints Way, with wonderfully expansive views over Golant Pill and the Fowey River from most rooms. Astronomer's House is an ideal base to explore the creeks on foot or by kayak and to enjoy the wildlife of the Fowey Estuary. Only a 12 minute drive, or boat ride, into the hustle and bustle of Fowey, Golant is a very pretty village boasting a historical church, a quintessentially Cornish waterside pub (The Fishermans Arms) and The Cormorant Hotel for dining and morning coffee. A particular feature of this cosy and attractively modernised Victorian terrace house is the large patio garden overlooking the River, equipped with all new garden dining furniture, parasol, lounger and gas barbeque for the 2014 season.
