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 Fowey

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.

Perfect in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what else I can add to the title really. Ali and Pete presented a beautiful, clean cottage which is a real home from home. Absolutely would recommend anyone to stay at Smugglers.

Beautiful cottage with attention to detail for decor, cleanliness and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and very comfortable to stay in. It was a last minute break for us as we only booked the day before but Ali made it very easy for all the arrangements to be made and the cottage was welcoming, warm and cosy after a long drive there. We were sad to leave after just 3 nights - you may see us again especially as we didn't have the weather in March for sitting outside in the gorgeous garden. We would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends...and anyone else too!

Lovely cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we stepped into Smugglers Cottage we knew we would have a lovely time. It is in a great location with splendid views across the rooftops of Fowey. The cottage is lovely - warm, cosy, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and has all you need for a relaxing time.

We visited in the winter and so the log burner was very welcome.

Fowey is a lovely town with friendly shops and pubs and some great restaurants. If you like walking there are many walked you can do from the doorstep of Smugglers.

We will definately return.

Amazing views, immaculate cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fab stay at this well equipped and maintained cottage. Nice touches like fresh flowers helped to make it a special stay. Lovely and warm and cosy, views were breathtaking and convenient location for walking to town (if you don’t mind a steep hill!). Great mini break with the kids.

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.
