About the property

Water Fronting Character Cottage in Fowey, Cornwall, England - A few minutes walk from Fowey Town centre, truly 'At Waters Edge'

'At Waters Edge' is in an exceptionally beautiful position, built right on the banks of the Fowey River, with the Du Maurier family home, 'Ferryside', on the opposite side of the river. Every room has stunning river views and the private terrace is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy watching life on the river or perhaps try catching a fish for your supper! You will never tire of the constantly changing view of large and small boats and abundant wildlife. Fowey Town is just a few minutes, mainly level, walk away. Many of our guests return year after year. Perfect for an Autumn or Winter break. There is no parking at the property but you have a choice of two car parks within 5 mins level walk.

Notes on accommodation: This delightful former sea captain’s house is right on the Fowey River so you really will be - At Water’s Edge. Built on this idyllic spot, nearly 200 years ago has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The views of the river, Bodinnick and surrounding countryside are truly superb. It won’t take you long to feel at home in this comfortably furnished cottage and you can sit back, with a first class view of the river and relax. Watch the sail boats and the kayaks, the rowers practice, the ferryboats and fishermen. The river is bursting with wildlife - cormorants, swans, and ducks – and more recently a dolphin has been spotted! The car park is just 5 minutes walk and from there the car ferry crosses to Bodinnick and the start of the famous Hall Walk with its amazing views of Fowey. A few minutes walk through narrow streets and you are in Fowey town with shops, restaurants and bustling quay. Outside: Delightful brick paved waterside terrace with built in slate seat and balcony over the water. The high walls on either side give privacy and the morning sun makes this a truly delightful outside space. Table and four chairs and small cast iron BBQ. The perfect place to sit with your drink, perhaps enjoy a barbecue, or simply sit in the sun and enjoy the lovely views. Full gas central heating and electricity included in price.
