Luxury Creekside self-catering Boat House in Malpas


You can’t get more waterside than this contemporary haven; there’s a real on-deck feel to the sitting room vista, and guests can explore some of the most amazing waterways in Cornwall from the doorstep. Open-plan living over three levels gives this light-filled self-catering river house a spacious feel whilst enjoying the ever changing vista from the comfort of the sofa. Nearby Truro offers a bevy of independent boutiques for a unique shopping experience. 

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Head ‘below deck’ to the master bedroom where a delightfully comfortable king-size bed awaits you. The luxury bathroom - complete with deep curved bath and shower - can be found on the ‘top deck’; enjoy an indulgent bubble bath after a windswept riverside walk.  


An idyllic location on the water's edge, nestled in a landscape of wooded creeks and inlets, the village of Malpas is a truly beautiful setting. You're just a riverside walk away from Truro with its stunning cathedral, great selection of eateries and choices of delis and boutiques. Although the Creekside Boat House does not have a garden area, there's a real outside/inside feel with the floor-to-ceiling sitting room window affording beautiful views which welcome the outside in.

For Relaxation

You’ll find it hard to leave the comfort of the sofa. Remember to pack your binoculars as you watch the ebb and flow of the tide and the plethora of birds – from curlews to egrets, herons to turnstones that call the River Creek, Malpas their home. The beautiful sub-tropical gardens of the large country estates of Trelissick and Tregothnan can be glimpsed through the thick, lush woodlands that come right down to the water’s edge. 


There is a washer/dryer and dishwasher at the property but no freezer. While there is no allocated parking space for the property, there is side-of-road parking for one vehicle to the rear of the house.



Style: Open-plan living over three levels gives this light-filled boutique bolthole a spacious feel. The interiors give a nod to the nautical, whilst retaining a stylish elegance befitting of a converted riverside chapel.

The tranquillity enveloped me as soon as I set foot inside the Creekside Boat House. Located in a stunning riverside setting, I found myself idling away the hours watching the wildlife and boats gently bobbing past. The nearby cosmopolitan town of Truro is great for fans of boutique shops!
