For the young and fit!

  • 4 of 5

First impressions of the cottage were disappointing . It was cold and unwelcoming and seemed somewhat drab and cramped. We arrived quite late so it was not a good start to find no welcome pack. I think it's the first time we've ever rented a holiday apartment without at least milk in the fridge. As the cottage is a short walk from the town it didn't really matter too much as we could eat out in one of the excellent restaurants. Another problem was that we'd forgotten our towels! Also coat hangers would have been useful.

Anyway , we settled in and passed a reasonably comfortable night and were able to get basic supplies from the nearby corner shop and fresh croissants from one of the great bakeries. A bunch of daffodils brightened up the living room. By now we were feeling more positive but cold. We phoned Sue, the caretaker, who was round within minutes to get the heating adjusted. We went to collect the car from the Main Car Park. We are from Lincolnshire and quite ancient. The climb was a shock!

After a week we were getting quite possessive about the cottage and were getting used to the climb. While not a luxury cottage it is clean, comfortable and has everything one needs. The long climb to the car park makes it more suitable for younger renters. All in all we enjoyed staying there.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we'd booked self catering accommodation as hotels were always favoured. However after this trip to fowey and staying in littlesteps cottage I'd be doing it again. This was a great place to stay, great location in the old part of fowey. The accommodation was great with good views of the town it felt like home from home. After a long day out each day it was nice to just relax in what felt like your own little Bolt hole.

We found Littlesteps and Fowey delightful

  • 5 of 5

We found the cottage enchanting with lovely views overlooking the church and peeps of the harbour. The cottage had everything we needed to enhance our stay. We were blessed with good weather and really enjoyed exploring Fowey with its local restaurants and shops, enjoying the authentic cornish pasties a little too much! Lots of walks to Foweys surrounding bays and coastal paths with fabulous views. We can't wait to revisit

Great bolt hole, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect quaint cottage ideal for exploring the south coast of Cornwall. Garden is a hidden treasure. Kitchen wants for nothing to cook home cooked meals. We look forward to staying again in the future! Many thanks.

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Fowey has a unique and ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages.

Fowey is renowned for sailing in the estuary and attracts both experienced and novice sailors alike. Fowey Regatta week is the highlight of the social calendar, with Sailing, The Red Arrow Display Team, Carnival, Fireworks display and lots of live bands being but a few of the events taking place.

Private boat hire, sailing, canoeing and diving lessons are all available from Fowey.

Lots of lovely walks around the superb National Trust land and beautiful coastlines and beaches that surround Fowey.

Coast/Beach:

We have two bathing beaches in Fowey, Readymoney Cove, a small sandy beach 15 min stroll from the town centre and Whitehouse Beach which is on the Esplanade, and only a 5 min walk from the town centre. Polkerris Beach is 15 mins drive away and has two nice restaurants.

Travel:

Buses run regularly from Fowey into Par and St Austell and to the nearest train station, Par, which is only 5 miles from Fowey.

There is a seasonal local Fowey Town Bus that runs throughout the day.

The Polruan ferry runs from early morning, throughout theday and into the evening. The Bodinnick car and passenger ferry also runs continuously throught the day and evening and makes a quicker journey to Lerryn, Pont and Mixtow and all points east!

Distances:

Eden Project - really worth seeing - 15 mins drive.

Padstow - Rick Steins restaurants are only 40 mins away.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan are 15 miles away.

Lanhydrock House (National Trust) is only 7 miles away.

Further Details:

The cottages are in the centre of the town with all the main restaurants and amenities within short walking distance. Some of our top tips:

Pinky Murphy's - try the Pinky's Plater.

Brown Sugar - coffee and cakes - fab pancakes.

The Ship Inn - traditional pub with a real fire.

The Galleon - great river views and plenty of atmosphere

Sams - brilliant burgers and seafood.

Nathan Outlaw at the Marina Hotel - for Michelin stars.

We have some fantastic local shops including Fowey Fish, which sells locally caught fresh fish and has an extensive selection of wines. Nile's bakery sells fresh bread and cakes. In addition we have a super local butcher, deli and green grocer - you really don't need your car!
