The Salt Loft, Charming Bolthole in the Heart of Lovely Fowey
Stylish Comfort just a Pebble's Throw from the Quay
Sleeps 2 (1 Bedroom)
The Salt Loft is a light and airy flat on the second floor of a converted warehouse, full of character - and well-equipped. Our guests say it is 'In the perfect location' for a great break, that it offers 'all the ingredients for a relaxing holiday,' and add it is 'well appointed', and a real 'home from home'. We've tried to provide everything our guests could need and one kindly said: 'You've got it just right'. Fowey is a real joy, offering excellent walking, aided by two year-round ferries - one to Polruan,the other to Bodinnick - and summer boat trips to Lostwithiel, Lerryn, Polperro, and Mevagissey.
The main bedroom has a double bed, double wardrobe, chest of drawers, bed side cabinets, bed side lamps, and a clock radio. It is lit by two Velux roof lights. An extra bed in the living area can be provided if two singles wish to share the flat.
The bathroom has a full-sized bath with an excellent shower fitted over. Fresh bath mats are provided.
The kitchen/dining area is beautifully equipped, with an electric oven/grill, gas hob, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, blender, electric whisk, cafetiere, plates, cups, jugs, bowls, pans - even a wok. The circular table seats four.
Our utility cupboard contains a washer-drier, iron, ironing board, wine rack, and additional hanging space.
The stylish living area has a squashy sofa, two tub chairs, a rug, coffee table, lamp tables with lamps, flat screen 32-inch Sony TV, DVD, CD hi-fi, plus a pine chest of drawers for extra storage.
The property is reached via a white marble stair case. Wi-fi internet access may be available.

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.

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.

'What a find! The perfect flat in the perfect location.'
"Beautiful apartment, fabulous weekend, brilliant location!"
"A superbly equipped flat in a superb location. Plenty to do whatever the weather, not least enjoying Cornish produce in these comfortable surroundings"
"What a fantastic apartment in such a great place. We travelled around Cornwall in our week and thought Fowey was the best of all!"
About the Owner
We fell in love with Fowey in the early nineties - always swore we'd never return to the same place twice for hols., but somehow nowhere ever matched up to Fowey. We always had our best holidays here!
Eventually our careers allowed us to move here for good, and we just couldn't resist The Salt Loft when it came up for sale in 2005.
We've run it very successfully ever since, couples love its cheery yet cosy atmosphere, and the fact that it is slap-bang in the middle of such a beautiful place, yet in a quiet backwater.
It's satisfying to hear how much our guests have enjoyed their break, they always say, "We've had a lovely time!"
