About the Owner

Ali & I moved to Cornwall in 2001 and have been involved in renovating property in and around the Fowey area since. We have two properties with Owners Direct (Smugglers Cottage sleeping 4, & Appletree House, sleeping up to 10, in nearby Tywardreath), both properties were renovated for luxury holiday letting.

We handle the bookings and management of the cleaning and maintenance ourselves; in addition Ali, who is a Garden Designer, designed and implemented the landscaping of both gardens.

We are both keen sailors and regularly race our local built Fowey River Dinghy - a 15 ft wooden clinker built boat with beautiful black and lime green sails – you may even see us out racing in the Fowey River estuary on Wednesday evenings or Saturday afternoons.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A fantastic little cottage, well designed with just about everything thought of, beautifully decorated and a lovely location - thanks!



We stayed during Regatta week, it was pure delight. Smugglers is lovely and cosy, everything you could need is there, beds comfortable, views amazing!



Cottage and views are lovely, the garden is a real bonus, please look after the very pretty clematis.



The cottage is cosy and nights by the stove were just perfect.



Fowey is one of our favorite places and did not disappoint. The cottage is really comfortable and is in a fantastic location with great views.



Friendly, peaceful, relaxing - just some of the words we found ourselves repeating during our week here. The cottage itself was perfect.



Smugglers Cottage is lovely, well appointed and has great views, we look forward to returning.

We have stayed in Fowey 4 times before and this is the best accomodation we have stayed at. Beautifully equipped with everything you need, spotlessly clean and gorgeous views. A real gem of a property - i'd book if I were you!!

Absolutely smashing

  • 5 of 5

Smuggler's Cottage is situated on a quiet street, about a 5 minute walk from the town.

It is nicely furnished and the decor is both modern and stylish. The owners have obviously put a great deal of thought into the design, as well as the comfort, of the property.

A file containing user manuals for all appliances, together with general information regarding the cottage and the area, is provided. Clearly a lot of time and effort went into compiling the file - very impressive and helpful.

There are lovely sea views from the rear garden, which is three tiered.

It is very peaceful & relaxing and the silence is broken only by the occasional 'vocal' seagull, or the delightful hourly chime of the church clock.

The cottage is not too far from the car park, which is accessed via a few steps opposite. We would recommend purchasing a parking ticket (£47.00 for the week) from the tourist centre in the town (next to the church). They are open at week-ends, so it is easy and convenient.

Fowey has a number of good restaurants and the local people are extremely friendly and helpful.

We would definitely recommend staying at Smuggler's Cottage and hope to return some time.

Gem of a cottage you won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

If, like us, you’re looking for somewhere special for a break in a breathtaking part of the country and have a few tabs open on your browser, comparing places to stay, may I respectfully advise you to close all the others and pick Smugglers Cottage. You will not be disappointed and can bathe in the warmth of praise from the rest of the family that you’ve found a real gem. Smugglers had everything we needed - spotlessly clean, well-appointed with a top-of-the range kitchen, log-burning stove which made for cosy evenings when we stayed in late November, comfy beds & duvets and plenty of outdoor seating to take in the spectacular view and listen to the sound of boats on the river, seagulls and church bells. Fowey has some cracking pubs and restaurants, unique craft & clothes shops, a deli, bakery and best of all, friendly people. The walks along the coastline are amazing, and there’s the option of a ferry across the river to Polruan and more walks or in the summer a longer trip to Mevagissey. A big thank you to Ali for a special holiday full of wonderful memories - we’ll definitely be back!

Location

From the Owner

When we first looked at Smugglers Cottage it was in a sorry state and the garden was overgrown, but we fell in love with the views and magical feeling it had. We really enjoyed renovating it and bringing it back to life. We liked the ability to unload outside the cottage without having to block the road and the quietness provided in this area, where you can sit on the terrace and watch the boats go by.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Smugglers Cottage is a 10 mins walk to the coast path and Readymoney Cove. Other beaches can be walked to in about 25 minutes or there are several within a 30 minute car drive. The North Coast Beaches are approx 40 minutes away by car.

Further Details:

Fowey Royal Regatta week is third week in August. During the week you can watch the fireworks and the Red Arrows from the patio, or enjoy the entertainment on the Quay each evening. There is entertainment for children including the crab catching competition and the Giant Pasty! On the river you can see the Falmouth Working boats racing together with the local Troy and Fowey river fleet.
