The Sanctuary Cornwall


Discover zero carbon living at “The Sanctuary Cornwall”. An off-grid eco lodge set in 12 acres of woodland above the village of Golant, with stunning views over the Fowey Estuary, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The emphasis is on connecting with nature, and sampling sustainable living in our pioneering project, that relies on solar power and our own logs for heating. The ideal retreat for walkers, cyclists, kayakers, artists, writers, photographers and nature lovers. There are 4 comfortable twin or king ensuite bedrooms, each with a private outdoor seating area overlooking the Estuary, organic bed linen, underfloor heating, rain head showers, and upcycled furnishings. There is also a spacious, open plan self catering apartment for 2 or 3 people, which can be converted to a meeting room/classroom.

Various footpaths connect you to Fowey, Lostwithiel and the Saints Way. Get close to estuary wildlife on a kayak trip with Encounter Cornwall or bring your own and we can advise you on the best routes to take. SUPs are also an option. Spot kingfishers and herons and let owls and curlews serenade you to sleep. A few minutes walk downhill is the Fisherman’s Arms pub where you will find a warm welcome and good home cooked food. We can also introduce you to a local therapist for a range of relaxing treatments.

We have no WiFi or TVs as we want to preserve the tranquility, but 4G is available. Our rooms are normally booked on a Bed & Breakfast basis, but The Sanctuary is also available for residential courses and small groups - please get in touch if we can help.

We welcome well behaved dogs by prior arrangement only, at a charge of £12.50 per night
