Welcome to The Sanctuary Cornwall, a sustainable 4 bedroom, off grid eco build, set in 12 acres of mixed woodland and pasture overlooking Golant village and the Fowey Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Accommodation is booked on a B&B basis per individual room (minimum 2 nights). The emphasis is on connecting with the great outdoors in a sustainable way, low power & water consumption and giving visitors the opportunity to sample off grid living at our pioneering project.

The space
We rely on solar for power and some hot water - we also have a log boiler for additional water heating. There are no TVs or WiFi, but 4G is available. Underfloor heating and USB charging points. We have fantastic views over the river from each room, and one parking space for each room is provided half way up the entrance drive. Guests are requested to walk up the rest of the drive to the building. Guests are also welcome to explore our 12 acres of wood and meadows, and we can suggest other walks for you. Well behaved dogs are welcome by arrangement.

Guest access
Every room has an ensuite bathroom, and a dedicated seating area on the terrace overlooking the river, and seating in the room. In addition, there is space outside to sit, plus benches all over our 12 acre wildlife habitat, which guests are welcomed to wander. Breakfast is served in the Breakfast room, which serves as reception, office and small library.

Other things to note
Please be aware that you access the property via a step concrete track. Guests are requested to park in the parking area half way up on the left, and then walk up the remaining part of the track to the building. This is to preserve the tranquility of the property as much as possible. Of course, you are welcome to drop off/pick up your luggage, but then please park down the hill. There is one space per room allocated. Any extra cars are asked to be left in the village car park (pay & display) about 5 mins walk away. Some of the village is not lit, so if you can bring a torch with you it’s a good idea, although we can loan you one! We are totally offgrid, so rely on guests cooperation to make sure that there is enough water and power for everyone! Please don’t leave taps running, or take 30 min showers - why not try our 3 min shower challenge? The more power you use, the longer it will take the system to recover - particularly if it’s a cloudy day! Please note we have no TVs or WiFi, but you should be able to connect to 4G!

Location

Golant, Cornwall, United Kingdom

We enjoy fabulous views over the Fowey Estuary and the village of Golant, in an area of Outstanding Natural Beuaty. We are surrounded by trees, pasture and meadows. We have lovely, waterside village pub for evening meals, and we also operate a kayak company from the village waterside, offering award winning guided tours, and hire. There is a seasonal Cafe at the Boatshed too. We also join the Saints Way Path - which leads to Fowey.
