"A Great Apartment"

We have just returned from a lovely week staying in Fowey at the Saltloft and we were very impressed by this fabulously located apartment. Easy access to pubs, restaurants and shops which is superb but if like us you have long fulfilling days in delightful Cornwall, it is equally great to spend evenings relaxing in this home from home. We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the apartment and the well equipped kitchen. All in all a great place to stay. We will be spreading the word about this smashing little place.

We booked a last minute break at The Salt Loft and loved it! Great position, beautifully appointed and furnished. Couldn't be better and a bargain price.

"In love....."

This was the second trip to the Salt Loft for my partner and I, booked to celebrate three special occasions over one week. We cannot recommend this wonderful little place highly enough! The apartment is beautiful, fully stocked with everything you need for a self catering holiday, which is rare to find! It is comfortable, light and airy and feels like home from the moment you sit down with your first cup of tea! The location of the Salt Loft has to be seen to believed, the centre of Fowey, and all it has to offer is literally right outside your door. On our first trip to this gorgeous little Cornish gem we had planned day trips to all sorts of places but found ourselves in Fowey all week fully occupied with no need to venture any further! The Salt Loft is a magical little find and a place we will return to again and again.

"Wonderful location"

A lovely flat, well equipped, and so well located for all the shops, pubs, restaurants, and the sea. The L shaped living area was so roomy, when sitting relaxing the kitchen is out of view, but for culinary use the kitchen is well equipped and laid out. The bakers is 30 seconds away, yes 30 seconds, I timed it, and SAMs is also right on the doorstep, great atmosphere, great staff, fabulous food, and don't be frightened to ask for 2 starters. You could not be closer to the centre of town. Loved it.

Response to review:
Thanks so much for your kind comments. People love the central location of The Salt Loft, but also appreciate the fact that the property is tucked away from the hustle and bustle! Chris Wharton

'What a find! The perfect flat in the perfect location.'
"Beautiful apartment, fabulous weekend, brilliant location!"

About the Owner

We fell in love with Fowey several years ago, during a holiday with friends. Since that day we have returned several times to Fowey. Even though we have toured all around Cornwall, the charm of Fowey always draws us back!! It has long been a dream of ours to own a holiday let in Fowey, but we knew it had to be just right, a home away from home, the perfect getaway for couples, nestled in the heart of Fowey. When The Salt Loft came on the market, we knew it was just what we'd been looking for.
The Salt Loft has run successfully since 2005; guests love its cheery and relaxing character, hidden away from the hustle and bustle, yet near enough to quickly dash out for the morning paper, cold milk or warm baked goods.
The Salt Loft has everything you need to have a wonderful holiday in Fowey.
