The Details...

A stay like no other, The Water Tower’s interior is just as intriguing as its exterior. Live out your own romantic fairy-tale in this Rapunzel-esque tower, once used as a reservoir in the 1860s.

At four storeys high and yet with only one room on each floor, a stay at The Water Tower will be like no other. You’ll enter through arched barn doors and climb its winding staircase to intriguing, circular-shaped rooms with gothic-style windows.

Standing proud on the Trelissick estate, it’s a fine example of the Victorian obsession for embellishing such utilitarian buildings.

Make the most of your location on the banks of the River Fal, and explore the surrounding 300 acres of diverse countryside. There’s even a small beach on the estate too, where you can spend a day lazing on its sands.

Take the nearby King Harry Ferry and journey along the river down to St Mawes, Falmouth and the Roseland Peninsula. You could also explore the area by canoe; Canoe Cornwall offer guided tours as well as archery and bushcraft sessions.
