You can experience the thrill of living right on the water's edge in this handsome cottage. Quay Cottage is on King Harry Quay, where there has been an important ferry crossing of the River Fal for centuries. You have your own private quay so bring your own small boat or hire one locally.
The present King Harry Ferry propels itself across the deep, fast-flowing water on chains attached to either bank. The ferry runs daily from 7am - 9pm and provides access to the lovely Roseland peninsula.
Explore the Fal Estuary and beyond without impacting on the delicate natural environment of this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Park up the car and do all your travelling by river. Use the hop-on hop-off ferries to visit Falmouth, Truro and all points between.
