Ruan Dinas is the perfect location to escape the mayhem of everyday life and indulge in casual luxury and serene estuary views. There is the added bonus of a drying mooring, which you can book at no extra cost, and a slipway at Roundwood Quay 10m from the garden where you can launch your boat. There are few better spots to have a fantastic family holiday or romantic getaway.

Property Details

Ruan Dinas, situated on the banks of Cowlands Creek, a tributary of the Fal, is nestled between some picturesque woodland and the tranquil waters of the estuary. It is a perfect spot for kayaking, boating or stand up paddle boarding. Roundwood Quay is literally at the bottom of the garden and smaller children will love the opportunity to go crabbing and the owners have thoughtfully included crab lines as part of their inventory. If you have a larger boat there is even a mooring included. In the winter months there is a superb wood burner to absorb the warmth while watching the ebb and flow of the tide - a perfect way to relax and enjoy your holiday.

Roundwood Quay is a short distance away from Penelewey where the welcoming Punchbowl and Ladle offers excellent food and a convivial atmosphere. A couple of miles away is Loe Beach, a sheltered watersports haven at the top of the Carrick Roads. During the season there is a busy little cafe selling a variety of delicious home cooked meals and a vibrant watersports centre where you can rent boats and kayaks or have lessons to learn the basics. Trelissick Gardens are a 5 minute drive or a nice walk away and from there the tourist hot spots of Falmouth, St Mawes and Truro are all connected via ferry for an enjoyable adventure on the high seas. A short drive inland is the cathedral city of Truro with a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants.

Ground Floor only: There is a large open plan kitchen / diner and living area, all with fantastic estuary views. The kitchen has fully fitted units and modern appliances, the dining area has a beautiful wood table with bench seats and the living room has a wood burning stove and French doors to the garden area. There is a zip and link bedroom with a 6' bed that can be split into two 3' singles. A second double bedroom (5' bed) and a third twin bedroom (3' beds). There are two bathrooms with showers over the baths, WC and hand basins.
Exterior: There is parking on the drive for at least 2 cars outside the property. There is a large private garden with patio table and chairs, a picnic bench, a charcoal barbecue and a fire pit. There is also a further garden area the other side of the lane to Roundwood Quay, right on the edge of the creek with a decked area that is perfect for crabbing. There is a drying mooring that can be included with your rental.

Facilities & Services
The kitchen has a range of units & work tops. There is an electric oven and hob, a range cooker, a microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

Relaxing week
Reviewed on 30/09/2020

The location is amazing and we loved sitting outside for breakfast and just enjoying the outdoors. The cottage itself was really clean and had lots of crockery cutlery and utensils. The bedrooms were a good size. The only issue is the road down which us difficult to manage unless you have a 4 x 4, but this did not spoil our stay at all. The extra area on the jetty was lovely on an evening, especially with the fire pit

What a wonder place for a holiday
Reviewed on 05/08/2020

We've just had one of the most wonderful family holidays at Ruan Dinas. A superb spot, lovely house which is of a high standard, fully equipped and couldn't have given us more. The house was lovely to be in, the gardens a real feature, the house being on the edge of the woods and by the quay worked really well, and our favourite place was on the deck down by the river next to the fire pit, either sunning ourselves or watching the sun go down and the fish jumping. This holiday home feels like you're tucked away from everything but at the same time with all the visitors to the quay and the messing out with boats on the river it feels loved and enjoyed. I'd highly recommend Ruan Dinas and thank Cornwall Cottages for being helpful, swift and informative which isn't always the case with letting companies. Thank for you all for a truly memorable holiday.

After booking for a short stay last minute we were delighted to find that ruan dinas was available and what a find- such a magical spot,so quiet and peaceful with views to die for. The bungalow was warm and comfortable, lovely for relaxing in after dark and the welcome box of fudge and apple juice was much appreciated .The lovely woodland walks just outside the gate encouraged you to walk around the next corner just to see another beautiful aspect of the river.Everything was perfect- we will certainly be back again .

A slice of heaven
Reviewed on 21/05/2019

When we rounded the final corner of the rather bumpy lane to find the creek at high tide lazily gliding by, a shimmering green that has to be seen to be believed, we thought we'd taken a wrong turn. Can it really be here? Is Cornwall really still this unspoilt? But when we entered the cottage itself, we were absolutely knocked out by our welcome: the warmth from the Aga (Heritage Stove) embraced us and waiting on the table were locally-made scones, jam, cream (in the fridge), apple juice, coffee and fudge. For two ravenous travellers this was so appreciated! After refreshment we began to explore and found the house tastefully furbished: comfy sofas, big, luxurious beds, two bathrooms and space to breathe... Fabulous as the cottage is though, it is the location that is just stunning. Right beside a branch of the River Fal (which can be seen from the house and gardens) there are fabulous woodland walks to explore; there's a little jetty where we launched our kayak, and a public quay where people come to fish and canoe and although there is a public right of way in front of the cottage, the road to the quay is long enough and pot-holed enough to keep all but the hardiest at bay, so it's never really busy! Our time at Ruan Dinas went too fast and we loved every moment. We have stayed in very many holiday cottages, Airb&bs and hotels in Cornwall, but this has to be amongst the finest of places there is. I have left a bit of my heart there, so I'll definitely be back!
