About Sue Simpson

Fowey residents since 2002.

Sue Simpson purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Sue Simpson chose Newquay & St Austell area

Having visited Fowey regularly since childhood, my husband and I bought Spinnaker in 1999 as a holiday home, when the property was newly formed as part of six apartments known as Galleon Flats. Since moving to Fowey full time in 2002 the apartment has been a very successful holiday let, with many visitors returning year after year. We have continued to use the apartment ourselves over the years, and still do, firstly because we love it, and secondly to ensure it is comfortable for visitors, there is nothing like first-hand experience!

What makes this apartment unique

The apatment is tucked away down a private passageway off the main street - almost a secret location!

Once up in the apartment, it is quiet, relaxing, light and airy. A roof terrace has been added from the beginning of 2015 so now visitors can go up to the terrace to sit and enjoy the atmosphere of the town and harbour while still being very private and secluded. This is the only one of the Galleon Flats with any outside space which is a huge advantage to the apartment - a real gem in the heart of Fowey.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in Spinnaker which we have found very comfortable, cosy and meeting all our requirements. All small details have been thought about, thank you very much. May 2014.



We were pleasantly surprised by the Flat, the location & Fowey, everything was very good & we enjoyed it all very much. Thanks again, I will thoroughly recommend you & your flat to family & friends.



A lovely apartment and very well equipped. Everything is of a high standard.

Small but homely, perfect central position.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The owner was very helpful. It was easy to access and simple instructions helped.

Brilliant central position with ferries, cafes and restaurants a few paces away.

Happily we had sun and blue skies for our walks along the coastal path.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely February week here.

Very clean , cosy, all amenities supplied. The excellent roof terrace addition is a perfect south facing spot to sit and view river one side and church the other.

Easy central location with bars and restaurants and boutique style shops on the same road. We would definitely recommend the ferry to Polruan and the Hall walk over the cliffs and amazing views especially Lantic Bay. The walk to Gribben Lighthouse is also worth it.

Location

Coast/Beach:

Fowey Town Quay and harbour is two minutes walk away. The local beaches at Whitehouse and Ready money are a few minutes easy walking along the Esplanade. The coastal footpath to the west starts from the mouth of the harbour about 15 minutes walk from the apartment, and a short ferry crossing to Polruan on the other side of the harbour, starts the coastal path to Polperro and Looe.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Newquay, about 25 miles. The nearest railway station is at Par, approx 4 miles. Busses run hourly between St Austell, Par and Fowey.

Local taxis are available for pick up, pre-booking required. Use of a car is not essential for visitors staying locally in the town, but is necessary to explore further afield.

Distances:

The Eden Project is six miles away, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, near Mevagissey, are 12 miles away. The National Trust's Lanhydrock House is about 8 miles, and Padstow on the north coast is about 40 minutes' drive.

The historic port of Charlestown, 7 miles away, is home to a number of tall ships and often featured in films and TV programmes.

Further Details:

Fowey has a number of high quality shops, including a butchers, fish shop, delicatesen, bakery, bookshops and unusual gifts. There is a range of restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes. Most places remain open all year round to serve local residents and visitors who like to visit Fowey out of the main season.
