About Laura Reuben

Having stayed in Fowey for a number of years we decided we wanted to have our own apartment and make best use of it when we are not using it by letting it out. The apartment has been completely redecorated and newly furnished in 2016 to a high standard. We love heading over to Polruan on the passenger Ferry or if you wish to head further a field you can take a boat to Mevagissey. There is a car ferry that will take you from Fowey so that you can head to Polperro and Looe. Charlestown is also nearby with a Shipwreck & Heritage Centre. The pubs in Fowey serve great food, you have plenty of choices for eating out. Fowey is a great location for walkers something which we enjoy each time we visit. The Hall walk is certainly worth the trek.

Laura Reuben purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Laura Reuben chose Fowey

Fowey is a bustling sailing port on the Fowey Estuary on the South Cornish coast, set in stunning countryside, with dramatic beaches nearby. Known for its sailing, walks, stunning views, and vibrant streets, Fowey is a gem in Cornwall. Inspiration to many of Daphne Du Mauriers' dramatic stories it is home to the annual Fowey Festival of arts & literature, and the Royal sailing regatta.

Fowey is the perfect place to holiday and we have enjoyed many holidays the walk down into Fowey never disappoints with superb views across the estuary and over to Polruan. Please be advised that our changeover day May - September is a Saturday.

What makes this apartment unique

Modern purpose built newly decorated and furnished bright and airy apartment. Superb panoramic views of the Cornish countryside from the large bay window in addition to a balcony off the master bedroom. Fowey is the perfect Cornish getaway. Minimum stay 7 nights main season. Mon - Fri or Fri - Mon also available Oct - April. Please enquire as to availability.

Stayed in Nov. quiet location, very clean apt, and the most comfortable bed. We felt very much at home. Easy walk into Fowey, the store is close by in Park Road. Laura is very quick to respond to any questions. I would highly recommend this apt for your stay, you will not be disappointed. We hope to return.

Cornish Gem Perfect for Lasting Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

The property is as described – a very well equipped, spacious, modern and comfortable apartment offering scenic countryside views within a quiet, mostly residential area. A short walk down into a quaint, friendly yet bustling Cornish village with every conceivable amenity. Also an ideal home from home and relaxing base from which you can explore all the delights of Cornwall with its fabulous beaches and coastal walks.

Firm Fowey Favourites – Quay Bakery, lovely fresh bread for breakfast, Hamilton Sweet Shop for salted fudge an absolute must try! Hire a boat from Steve at the Town Quay and explore the estuary – exhilarating our daughter Harriet loved skippering the boat! The lovely ‘Hall Walk’ circular route which takes you past the Lugger Inn in Polruan an ideal excuse to stop for a drink of Cornish Rattler. Games of Cones Cornish ice-cream parlour again a firm favourite, try the stem ginger and honey – WOW!

Laura was the perfect hostess, she provided excellent advice about the property, surrounding areas and attractions.

We enjoyed our stay tremendously, will we be back, would we recommend the property you ask? Absolutely!

Lovely stay in Fowey!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Sandy Steps for a week in August 2017. The property is modern, spacious and tastefuly decrated and about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the centre of Fowey.

The apartment has lovely views over the surrounding countryside and is very well equipped.

The location of the apartment makes it an ideal base for visiting local attractions such as the Eden Project, Charlestown and Looe via the Bodinnick ferry.

We would recommend Sandy Steps for anyone wishing to visit this lovely part of Cornsall.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous apartment last year and have rebooked for this August and cannot wait to return! The apartment itself was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It is in a very peaceful location and has lovely countryside views. The parking is really convenient and location is perfect for us as it is close to town and also easy to explore beaches and surrounding countryside. Our young son is very excited to be returning this year!

Very clean and nicely decorated apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and tidy. Would have liked tea towels and personal towels to be provided and a dish washer would have been really helpful. However, the water was nice and hot so washing up and baths, etc not a problem. The position of the property was fine for us but some might find it a bit of a struggle from the town (15-20 minutes uphill all the way). The price of the rental, however, reflected that this was not a town centre property. All-in-all we thought it was great and fitted the bill perfectly. Thank you Laura.

Owner's Response: We are only based 1.3 KM from the hustle and bustle of the Fowey Town Quay. For visitors not wanting the walk home after a busy day the Fowey Community bus offers an excellent service and stops outside the apartment. We have the luxury of glorious country side views with only a short walk into Fowey town. Towels are available to international visitors upon request. Please note they are not provided as standard to keep running costs down which is mentioned in our booking form.

Fowey Royal Regatta Week is held in the third week of August.This is a really exciting week in Fowey, especially for families with children, with a Grand Carnival, sailing races and free events on the Town Quay every day

At the beginning of December Fowey hosts a Christmas Market, a wonderful weekend with big marquees set up on the town quay, roasted chestnuts and events in all the shops to tempt you to buy your presents. An ideal winter break!
