About Ali Siddall

Pete and I moved to Fowey in 2001 after we fell in love with it when we sailed here. We renovated Smugglers Cottage ourselves and wanted to make it a real home from home. We handle the bookings and management of the cleaning and maintenance ourselves with the help of our lovely housekeeper Celene. We both love Fowey and can often be seen out on the water in "Little Gem" our fishing boat.

Ali Siddall purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Ali Siddall chose Newquay & St Austell area

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. Loving how you can just sit on the terrace and watch the boats go by. Or chill by the fire with a glass of wine. The views are really special from the both inside and out.

What makes this cottage unique

A traditional, cosy cottage atmosphere with all the comforts of modern living.

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.

Very well presented and perfectly located cottage

  • 5 of 5

Smugglers cottage was perfect for our needs. Comfortable, clean and with outside space. The jewel in the crown being the views, which you just never tire of. The local car park at the top of the hill is very close (5 mins walk) and the downhill walk into the centre is also only a few minutes walk although both are very steep, great for a bit of cardio exercise! The cottage is also situated on a quiet road. All in all a lovely place to stay in the great town of Fowey.

Well equipped and very clean. Wonderful view from the patio. We were a couple and it fitted perfectly. Only one bathroom with combined toilet, hence may not be suitable for 4 adults.

Pretty cottage and garden with great river views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a great location in the town, very comfortable and to a high standard and is well equipped. Very pretty garden with several terraces all with amazing views across the town and to the river. Ideal for breakfast outside in the morning and sitting with a glass of wine in the evening. I have been visiting Fowey for many years and this is the nicest cottage I have stayed in: will definitely like to stay in again. Maybe book for less rain next time though!

Fowey's Joy

  • 5 of 5

Smugglers Cottage is a well appointed, light and airy space overlooking the marina and river mouth. There is a delightful little garden with table and chairs placed for a pretty view of the boats and opposite hillside. It has all that one needs for a relaxing week away by the sea. It is a couple of minutes walk from restaurants and pubs although the hilly nature if the walks exercises one somewhat! We loved our time spent here.

Lovely Characterful Cottage With Great River Views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Smugglers Cottage! Booking was easy - with Ali and Peter through Owners Direct. Response times were quick, and Ali forwarded perfect details for accessing the cottage, with links for purchasing car parking for the week in the car park just up the hill from the cottage. It was very easy to park outside to unload and then drop off the car in the nearest car park. The cottage is entered through a stable door, into an open plan arrangement, with lovely kitchen and dining table to the front, and comfortable sitting area with TV and log burner to the rear. From here, French doors overlook the pretty garden with outdoor seating, BBQ, pergola, and river views of the Church and ancestral home. It really is a lovely spot. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Everywhere was spotless and thoughtfully presented, with quality bath towels and bed linen provided, plus tea towels, and hand soap. The kitchen has plenty of storage, and plenty of equipment, including a dishwasher, iron, and washing machine etc. There is also a downstairs loo. We slept well in the comfy beds and enjoyed exploring Fowey. We can't recommend Smugglers Cottage more highly for a most comfortable stay, with amazing views of the river, the beautiful garden, the well-equipped kitchen, and the central location for exploring the outlying areas.

There is so much to see and do in Fowey and beyond! If you love sailing, fishing, swimming, good food, then I would say that Fowey is an upmarket place with a down to earth feel about it. We are glad we chose to stay here. We can't thank Ali and Peter enough for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and we had the pleasure of meeting them before we left. They genuinely want people to be happy and comfortable, so I would recommend contacting them if you have any queries. They were most helpful. In summary, we would highly recommend the cottage as a perfectly located place to stay in Fowey. And because you are half way up the hill, when the storms come in, you get a birds eye view from the house...it was amazing to watch this spectacle of light from Mother Nature. We will treasure the memories of our time spent in Ali and Peter's cosy, 'home away from home'. Highly recommended.

Absolutely perfect. Real home from home

  • 5 of 5

What an outstanding property. Has everything you need and more besides. Spotlessly clean, superb views, lots of local eateries, especially The Luggers in the town. Fab food at good prices, but only go if you're starving, the portions are humongous ! Thank you Ali for all your help and making our winter break so special. Highly recommended
