Penmarlam Quay and Boat Park is owned by Fowey Harbour Commissioners and is situated in a stunning waterside location close to the picturesque hamlet of Mixtow. There is beautiful scenery and lovely coastal walks through woodland and farmland and the pretty village of Bodinnick is just a short walk away.
The ancient harbour side town of Fowey, just a short hop across the river, is one of Cornwall's most attractive small ports and has an excellent range of shops, restaurants, pubs etc. It is particularly well known as a sailing centre and hosts a famous week long Regatta each year in August. There are good road connections from Bodinnick to the A38/A30, and then the motorway system. Railway stations can be found at Par, via the ferry, Lostwithiel, Liskeard and Bodmin Parkway.
Penmarlam Quay Cottage occupies an elevated position on the edge of the facility and has a lovely view through the trees to the water beyond. It is ideally placed for someone whose passion is water sports, yachting or fishing. In addition to the unusual location the cottage is the only property on the river with the benefit of a 42 ft pontoon mooring for use in perpetuity, in agreement with Fowey Harbour Commission.

Many of the rooms have stunning views across countryside or towards the water.
