Fal River Cottage

Self Catering

A tastefully renovated, dog-friendly, Cornish holiday cottage nestled in the popular riverside village of Malpas near Truro boasts traditional features alongside modern-living luxuries. Wake up to the stunning views of the river from the main bedroom and enjoy your breakfast on the front deck while watching the tide rise and fall. Get lost along the walking trails that follow the river and explore some of the UK’s most wonderful waterways, stunning sun-soaked beaches and the rugged landscape bursting with history and heritage by taking a river cruise from Malpas. Be wined and dined just three doors away at the wonderful local, The Heron Inn, and then retreat to your own private garden with a book and a cup of tea to soak up the nature that surrounds you.

What makes a stay at Fal River Cottage unique?

Fal River Cottage is a fully refurbished traditional Cornish cottage with stunning river views. It's tranquil setting is perfect for switching off from the daily grind. However, far from being isolated, the cottage is only three doors down from the well loved Heron Inn and mere 2 miles from the bustle of Truro and all its attractions. Easy access to the river is perfect for indulging in water sports or taking a river cruise, and the many footpaths are perfect for getting lost on the wooded riverbanks of Carrick Roads.

What is the capacity for Fal River Cottage?

Fal River Cottage can comfortably accommodate up to three guests over two bedrooms. Guests can enjoy alfresco dining on the small decked area to the front of the house that leads to the lounge area. The lounge is fitted with a log burner and BT TV (with sports and Amazon Prime). There is a modern, fully-equipped kitchen/dining area to the back of the cottage. Upstairs, there is a typical 'Jack 'n' Jill' bathroom that is shared between the double bedroom that overlooks the river and the cosy single bedroom that has access to the rear garden. The rear garden has two different seating areas that are accessed on steep stairs. Both have impressive river views towards the Roseland. The higher deck is perfect for those hot summer days when you want to sit back and relax in pleasant shade from the trees. The lower, more open patio area provides comfortable seating, which is ideal for relaxing in the peaceful rural setting. This is the perfect space for "just the two of you" and a sanctuary for that romantic break that you have been promising yourselves. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Malpas area?

Now a quiet vilage, Malpas is a former bustling river port that served the nearby Truro. In spring/summer it is a departure point for daily river cruises all the way to Trelissick and Falmouth. There are several lovely walks that you can follow along the riverside. The Fal River Estuary (or Carrick Roads) is a popular destination to try out a variety of different water sports. Whatever the purpose of your stay, Fal River Cottage is the perfect place to relax and unwind while soaking up the stunning river setting and breath-taking views that surround you. Should you tire of the tranquil surroundings, you are just two miles away from the bright city lights of the Cornish capital Truro with its cathedral and an abundance of shops, restaurants and galleries.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Fal River Cottage is happily situated only 3 doors along from The Heron Inn. Popular with guests and locals, The Heron Inn offers an extensive menu of dishes made with fresh local ingredients and showcasing Cornish seafood. There are several ales and ciders on the tap and the wine list consists of carefully selected pickings.
