About the Owner
The Telling family have been visiting Fowey since the early 70's purchasing their first property in about 1974. In 1989 they bought No.4 Harbour view to accommodate a growing family. Fowey is now visited by 3 generations of the family from grandparents to grandchildren.
In 2008 the family also acquired No.1 Harbour View. The properties are very much a second home as is Fowey and are let just to help cover costs. It is also important that small towns such as Fowey are kept vibrant all year round rather than just in the summer months hence our properties are occupied all year round.
From the Owner
“No.4 Harbour View is about as good as it gets in terms of position. Set in a private cul de sac yet within 2 minutes walk of the town centre. The views are stunning and the position is quiet yet the house in the middle of Fowey. The only thing to disturb you are the sea gulls! Once in Fowey there is no need for a car as everything is on your doorstep. Fowey just about has it all from amazing walks to excellent sailing, award winning restaurants to quaint shops. The only thing that it doesn't have is surfing but there again it's only a 40 minute drive to the North coast!”

From the Owner
“Fowey is built on the face of a cliff which means that it is hilly. It is certainly not ideal for those who are less mobile however with parking right outside (a rare benefit for Fowey) life is made a great deal easier. No.4 is very comfortable and is continually being upgraded to meet the requirements of contemporary living. All our guests require is their clothing and literally everything else is available.”
