LOCATION The property is quietly and privately situated only 200 yards from the head of Forder Creek. The creekside hamlet of Forder is relatively unspoilt with charming old cottages and houses tightly clustered around the waters edge. The historic hamlet of nearby Antony Passage is at the mouth of Forder Creek and adjoins the wide tidal Lynher River estuary. This is a waterway frequented by a variety of pleasure craft, with Plymouth Sound only 5 miles distant by boat.



The villages of Antony Passage and Forder lie within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This location is at the foot of Trematon Castle, which is a well known local and historic landmark. The villages have a vibrant community, revolving around the tidal foreshore area and most attractive wooded hillsides that protect it from the prevailing winds. The moorings are administered by the village association and owners of property in the village have priority in renting moorings. The creek leads to the wider estuary at Antony Passage and from there into the expanse of the Tamar estuary and then out to sea. A wide network of quiet country lanes, footpath and bridleways and of course the renowned Churchtown Nature Reserve present many opportunities for those who enjoy the outdoor environment.



The amenities of Saltash are within easy reach of the property and here there is a comprehensive selection of local shops and facilities, while on the outskirts of the town there is a Waitrose store.
