Situated in the tiny creek-side hamlet of Point near Devoran, this superbly appointed cottage is positioned to take full advantage of the tremendous views down the river Carnon towards Restronguet Creek. At high tide, sipping a drink on the window seat in the sitting room, visitors might well think that they were actually afloat.
The setting is tranquil yet the cottage is within an easy drive of many of Cornwall’s best attractions. Falmouth, 6 miles away, offers everything a sailor desires along with sandy beaches and good restaurants. The attractive county town of Truro, with its cathedral and fine Georgian architecture, is only three miles away. The famous Eden Project is less than an hour’s drive, as are several of Cornwall’s finest gardens (Heligan, Trelissick and Lanhydrock to name but three); as well as Land’s End, the Lizard Peninsula and the countless beautiful beaches and magnificent stretches of the South West Coastal path. The north Cornish coast is only 40 minutes drive. Closer to home there is also much to explore in and around the Fal or Helford rivers and the Roseland peninsula.
The owners have taken enormous care in upgrading Lion Cottage to a very high standard. It offers truly luxurious accommodation for up to four people in three bedrooms in a magical waterside setting, with views out to the creek from almost every room.
Entrance to porch and thence to dining room. Separate very well-equipped kitchen. Archway to sitting room with French windows leading out on to decking and bow window overlooking the water (panaromic views down the creek). A few steps off the dining room lead to a double bedroom with super king-size bed and a shower room/wc. Stairs (NB open on one side) to 1st floor. Two bedrooms, both with super king-size double beds (one of these being two single beds made up as a double). Separate bathroom/wc.
Outside: large deck overlooking the water. Steps down to lower slipway and barbecue area on foreshore - charcoal barbecue provided.

Really enjoyed the lovely position of this delightful cottage. So quiet and peaceful - even the weather not bad for the time of year!Mr & Mrs Taylor, April 2016
Lion Cottage is superb. We fell in love with it from the moment we arrived. It is the perfect base from which to explore beautiful Cornwall & once back at the cottage to relax and enjoy the stunning and ever changing landscape - we will be back. Thank you for sharing your 'haven' with us.Mrs Clothier & family, March 2016
From our arrival to our departure, Lion Cottage has given us the most wonderful, relaxing holiday we have ever had. The views are stunning, the walks superb and the cottage has left us wanting for nothing. The view from the bath window must be the best in Cornwall!Mr & Mrs Dawe, May 2013
This has been the highlight of what has been a fabulous holiday. On entering the gorgeous cottage, wine & chocolates added that special touch to an already heightened sense of anticipation. Fantastic views, complete with swans, together with a cottage which lacks for nothing.Harper family, May 2013
From the moment we turned into Old Tramway Road we were all impressed. The cottage was great - delightful, everything we wanted; it ticked all the boxes! Clean, well appointed and equipped! Lovely garden, superb views and changing environment. Loved the swans. WiFi excellent.Harper family, May 2013
