An impressive contemporary retreat in an idyllic creek-side location
Peace and tranquillity await at Creek End; a unique property nestled in the trees in the sought-after village of Feock, on the south coast of Cornwall. The aptly named home is set in an idyllic creek-side location, which occupies an elevated south-west facing position at the head of Pill Creek. A truly outstanding property, this contemporary space allows guests to justly switch off, while being surrounded by not only luscious greenery and serene waters, but live lavishly in this high spec home.
Sleeping eight to ten guests, this striking home has left no stone unturned, to offer guests an unrivalled experience. Distinctive in form, yet highly functional the property is split across three levels. Walking through the front door guests will appreciate the grandeur of this space with a double height entrance hallway and contemporary glazed staircase. Creek End is flooded with natural light thanks to the generous triple glazed windows, which feature at every turn.
The kitchen space is one of the brightest in the house, and undoubtedly arranged for entertaining. The five bi-fold doors lead to the substantial glass-fronted decked terrace, which is fully equipped with a plethora of garden furniture, from relaxing loungers to a plush outdoor sofa. Diners are more than looked after back inside too, with an extendable dining table, breakfast bar area and superlative fitted kitchen. From the high specification integrated Gaggenau appliances, Quooker boiling tap and large Caple wine cooler to the bespoke champagne fitted cabinets, this kitchen will take Cornish feasts to new heights. On this first floor you’ll also find a large dual aspect living space, complete with inset woodburner, 55” LG SmartTV with Sonos soundbar and sumptuous l-shaped sofa. There’s a large dining table seating eight, or head outside to graze under the Cornish sun with direct access onto the decked terrace. There is also a WC on this floor.
Head upstairs to a land where guests sleep in style. The four bedrooms at Creek End, with its elevated position up in the trees, give a sense of treetop living, waking up to tireless views of the nature that surrounds this property. All bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes, bluetooth speakers, sumptuous super king mattresses and electronic blinds to allow for a restful night’s sleep. The crème de la crème is the master suite, elegantly styled the triple aspect with vaulted ceiling and private balcony creates an ambient space and provides an outlook of the creek beyond. There’s also a modern ensuite with large freestanding shower and double sink. The master also benefits from a dressing room entrance vestibule.
A further dual aspect bedroom is positioned at the other side of the house, which soaks up the scenery through the apex windows, while the shower room ensuite exudes luxury with lavish fittings. The two further bedrooms can be arranged as twins or super kings thanks to the zip ‘n’ link mattresses. The contemporary family bathroom is also on this level, featuring a double ended bath with shower attachment, and large freestanding shower.
The luxury continues on the lower ground floor; with an exclusive clandestine feel guests are treated to their very own bar and cinema room. Shake up a cocktail or grab a glass of champagne and head out to the bubbling hot tub. Guests will enjoy hunkering down for the evening in the cinema room, too, complete with 80” LG SmartTV, Bowers & Wilkens cinema sound system and sinkable modular Fama sofa – just bring the popcorn!
On this floor there’s also a modern wet room, and utility space with a washing machine and tumble drier. Back in the bar space there’s also a convenient pull-down Murphy bed if extra sleeping space is required.
Creek End is a distinctive and spacious family home, which offers guests the ultimate comforting holiday experience, with its open outlook towards the water and countryside. Set in its own tranquil heaven it’s easy to forget that you’re just five miles south of the cathedral city of Truro, with its restaurants, independent boutiques and mainline rail links. Much of the surrounding countryside is owned and managed by the National Trust, including nearby Trelissick Gardens, and is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with numerous country and creek-side coastal walks to enjoy, including local beach Loe Beach which is less than a mile away.

High-quality bed linen and towels are provided at all of Cornish Secrets properties.
A truly special part of Cornwall, Feock is just four miles from the capital Truro yet feels like a hidden sanctuary, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For those who appreciate life on the water at Feock the Carnon River and Restronguet Creek is on one side, while the River Fal is on the other.
The closest beach is Loe Beach, which is less than a mile away, it’s a shingle beach which operates a seasonal dog ban from Easter to September. There are toilets, a café, plus it’s a great spot for watersport enthusiasts. Loe Beach Boat Hire hires out paddleboards, motorboats, kayaks and rowing boats, plus the Watersports Centre here is an RYA Training Centre that offers courses in sailing, windsurfing and kayaking and many more.
The closest pub happens to be a very good one, The Punchbowl and Ladle in the village of Penelewey. You can walk it from Feock in about half an hour (1.5 miles) or it’s a few minutes by car. Parts of this traditional, thatched inn date back to the 15th century, and visitors can now expect a large, bright dining space and bar area, outside terrace, private dining rooms and games room with a pool table. The delicious food menu changes frequently, dependent on the season and has something to tempt everyone. Dogs are welcome too, and there’s often live music playing.
You’re also not far from a rather special pub… The Pandora Inn. Step back in time at this award-winning historic inn on the edge of Restronguet Creek, which dates back to the 13th century. An iconic thatched inn, named after HMS Pandora, choose to eat indoors in cosy comfort, or outside on their fabulous popular pontoon!
If you’re looking for ways to spend your days, nearby is National Trust owned Trelissick, a welcoming 18th century house and garden set in an estate with stunning maritime views and lovely woodland walks, which is a must-see when in the area. Visitors will appreciate the enveloping countryside surrounded by the River Fal, there’s a historic park, woodland, and even an Iron Age promontory fort and 18th-century quay.
The King Harry Ferry is a five-minute drive away. Established in 1888, connecting St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula with Feock, Truro and Falmouth – this avoids the road alternative 27 mile route. One of only five chain ferries in England, King Harry Ferry departs every 20 minutes from each side, 7 days a week.
Falmouth is one of the main hotspots on the south coast. For art lovers Falmouth Art Gallery is well worth a visit, as it contains over two thousands art works, from pre-Raphaelite to British impressionists, including masterpieces by Gainsborough and Tuke. Plus, the award-winning Maritime Museum, which also has a pirate-themed play area for small children. They offer arts and crafts events, storytelling and crabbing! The foodie scene at Falmouth is epic too – gastronomy is worth the trip alone. Or you could try a wildlife cruise to see if they can spot whales, dolphins and other marine life?
There are good local golf courses within easy reach including Truro Golf Club and of course many sailing clubs throughout the Carrick Roads.

The pictures really don’t do it justice, with no expense spared on its beautiful interior and charming garden. We went as a family of five, so felt like a luxury retreat in such a spacious environment. The location is so peaceful and serene, just what we needed to escape our busy lifestyle. Sarah was a brilliant host and always on hand for any queries. We would definitely love to return.
