Enjoy the water!


Whether you are a land lover or an experienced sailor, Cosawes provides a perfect base for enjoying the water. Take a boat trip on the River Fal and enjoy the tranquility of the creeks and coves. Stop off at Trelissick Gardens or at the Smugglers Tea Rooms for a walk and a bite to eat before continuing your exploration of this wonderful river. Take to the sea and sail to St Mawes on the ferry or hire the Falmouth water taxi that will take you to your chosen destination and return you when you are ready. Heaven! We can also recommend taking a wildlife cruise with Captain Keith of AK Wildlife Cruises – you may see dolphins and seals or even whales and basking sharks! (www.cornwallwhaleanddolphinwatching.co.uk) or taking to the north coast with award winning Newquay Sea Safaris (www.newquayseasafarisandfishing.co.uk).

For the slightly more adventurous, there are a large number of water sports activities that are within easy reach. Our particular favourite is a family kayaking trip. If you are new to kayaking, we would highly recommend a trip with Sam at Aberfal Outdoor Pursuits (www.aberfaloutdoorpursuits.co.uk) who will guide you through around the beautiful Helford River (and even provides a tow home if you need it!). Sam can also provide archery instruction. If you mention that you are staying with us prior to booking your trip, Sam will provide you with a discount of 10% of the quoted price.

Also a short drive from us:

Mylor Sailing School offers sailing courses for children, adults and families (we would recommend pre-booking in the summer months) (www.mylorsailingschool.co.uk);
Learn to windsurf at Stithians reservoir – just a ten minute drive away;
Learn to surf with the brilliant Global Boarders (www.globalboarders.com); or
(if you are over 12!) try your hand at gig rowing with Nankersey Rowing club (www.nankerseyrowingclub.com).

The opportunities are endless – if you would like to talk to us about recommendations, please do contact us direct. For those who are already equipped, we can provide a wet suit and surf board storage area in the courtyard store.
