Your attention is drawn to the Important Notice on the last page of the brochure.
The River Fowey is one of Cornwall’s most spectacular,
unspoilt and picturesque waterfront locations. It is
designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and
lies midway along the stretch of coastline from Gribbin
Head to Polperro, which has Heritage Coast status.
Pont Pill joins the River Fowey at Penleath Point
at the north-eastern corner of Fowey Harbour,
where much of the wooded banks are in the
ownership of the National Trust. A stunning
footpath, known as the Hall Walk, runs between
Bodinnick and Polruan and then in turn continues
along the South Cornish coast.
The novelist Daphne Du Maurier came to Fowey
in her early twenties and immediately fell in love
with the town, and her parents bought a house
in Boddinick in 1926. It was here that she wrote
The Loving Spirit in 1931. Today, the Du Maurier
Festival is an important annual event in the Fowey
The pretty harbour town of Fowey, on the
opposite side of the bank, is one of Cornwall’s
most historic and unspoilt seaport towns
renowned for its safe deep water anchorage
and sailing. In the summer months, Fowey is
a haven for sailors with the Royal Fowey Yacht
Club, Gallants Sailing Club and regular racing
events. Car and passenger ferries link the nearby
Bodinnick and Polruan with Fowey, and run
constantly during daylight hours providing easy
access to the town’s shops and amenities.
There are mainline railway stations at Lostwithiel,
Par, St Austell and Bodmin that provide a direct
link to London Paddington. The south coast ports
of Polperro and Looe are about 15 miles to the
east and Truro is about 25 miles away. Newquay
Airport provides regular flights to London Gatwick
as well as other European destinations.
Pencalenick House
Set directly into the southern bank of the stunning
Pont Pill Creek, Pencalenick House is a fine
example of contemporary architecture and offers
some outstanding south west facing views over
its own beach and the River Fowey. The house
was commissioned to the renowned London
Architectural practice, Seth Stein Architects, and
since its construction has been nominated for
and won a variety of architectural awards. Locally
sourced stone, cedar wood and a grass roof have
been used in the construction to ensure the house
is inconspicuous from the water, adding to the
privacy and seclusion of the property.
Approached via a long drive, sweeping down
towards the creek, the house appears nestled
under its grass roof with a decked terrace to one
side that enjoys sensational views over the creek. A
large sliding glass door gives access to the double
height open plan living room with floor to ceiling
windows that provide views across the water.
Perhaps the most striking feature is the glass
walkway, which overlooks the main living room,
lit from above by natural light from a glass roof
panel that runs almost the entire length of the
house. There are five double en-suite bedrooms
and two smaller bedrooms, spread across the two
floors. Each has clean lines, wooden shutters and
sliding windows that give access to the terraces
overlooking the creek.
The property is incredibly private, a rare asset in a
waterfront location, and is surrounded by delightful
woodland. There is a lawn area and paved terrace
to the front. The slipway is accessed from the
terrace and the woodland pathway leads to a
secluded barbecue area in the woods, which enjoys
some of the most magical views down the creek.
