About the property

Sunny Cornish cottage in Fowey, Cornwall - Views of the Estuary and a short stroll from the centre of the village

Charming 2 bedroom traditional Cornish Cottage situated in Fowey just a few minutes from the quayside and views of the estuary and Polruan from the bedroom window. We have tried and succeeded (we think) to create a warm, homely feel with a touch of luxury. A real fire for wintry days and a sheltered, south facing garden with decking and a barbecue for summer, all add to the charm. Situated a few minutes from the quay side, and the famous All Saints Way. The shops, pubs and restaurants are a short walk downhill past St Finnebarrass Church or via The Safe Harbour and The Ship both excellent hostelries.

There is always activity on the estuary from the many boats moored, and sometimes large visiting craft which need piloting in and if you are lucky the dolphins will visit too. There is a car ferry and a foot ferry running regularly across this famous natural estuary, it's so nice to get out on the water.

Walk along the Esplanade to reach Readymoney Beach or simply head off in the other direction to sample the huge variety of beaches and attractions this delightful area of Cornwall has to offer.

Full central heating, electricity, luxury bedlinen, towels, logs for the fire, internet and a welcoming bottle of wine are all included to make your stay comfortable.

We also boast membership to the Spa at the Fowey Hall Hotel a short walk away so guests can use the pool and hot-tub facilities and playground or book in for a massage or have a discount in the restaurant, all of which are thoroughly recommended.

About Carol Jackson

I came to Cornwall with my husband as we had decided we needed a project now the kids had left home. We travelled round looking for a cottage we would enjoy renovating and staying in and found this cottage in Fowey in a very sad state. We retired to the beach in Polkerris had a drink or two and the decision was made!! We have spent some worthwhile time restoring the cottage, and now the garden, with the help of a very good builder, my husbands building experience and my interior design. We have tried to create a warm comfortable holiday cottage with all modern facilities. Our kids certainly wish our home in Sheffield was as well furbished. We have all worked really hard together (kids included) and are quite proud of our achievement.

Carol Jackson purchased this house in 2011

Why Carol Jackson chose Newquay & St Austell area

We wanted a holiday home in a picturesque village within walking distance of the waters edge yet with good pubs and restaurants but needed plenty to see and do as well. In Fowey there is plenty to see and do with great walks, cliff paths, beaches, gardens, a great choice of golf clubs, vineyards, and of course sailing on the estuary or just messing about on the water. Since we have been coming down to the cottage we have fallen in love with Fowey and also its history from the pirates, Du Maurier, the War, rivalry with Polruan. Everyone will have a story to tell you, we have certainly chosen a great spot.

What makes this house unique

The cottage is situated within the village just behind the church but slightly elevated so you can see the estuary. It is an easy saunter down to the quayside and all the bars, shops and award winning restaurants, but there is easy access too so loading/unloading, parking and getting out of the village is easy too. The property has just been fully refitted out very tastefully and benefits from modern kitchen appliances that work easily and efficiently making it a pleasure to cook. There is a bright and airy open plan living area with a real fire, and a door straight out onto the smart decking area which gets the sun all day with a small garden beyond and a barbecue area. Lovely comfortable bedrooms and an amazing shower, two toilets, WiFi and efficient central heating!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have had a wonderful week in Fowey with fantastic weather. Our stay here has been very enjoyable and the cottage is lovely, clean, well equipped and cosy. Also the location is brilliant!

'Fabulous place,fabulous location'

I just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we enjoyed staying in your lovely cottage in Fowey. We thought it was beautifully decorated and furnished and probably the nicest cottage we have ever rented over the years. Fowey was as lovely as ever and we hope to return before too long and

hopefully to your delightful cottage.

Just wanted to say we had a great week in Fowey and very much enjoyed staying in your lovely cottage. You have made a great success of the renovations and it is a truly special place to stay. We hope to visit again!

Thank you for providing such beautiful accommodation for our holiday in Fowey. The cottage has such a homely feel but with a hint of luxury too we will certainly recommend you to our friends!

Excellent location

A comfortable cottage in quiet location, close to Fowey centre and the town carpark. Use of Fowey Hall hotel's pool is an added bonus. We enjoyed relaxing in the secluded patio garden.

Delightful cottage. Cosy, well equipped, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Fowey is a very lovely and unspoilt town in a magnificent setting and this pretty little cottage just a short stroll from the harbour is a perfect base for exploring the area.

There are some magnificent walks to be had, the town is full of places to eat and, if self-catering, the butcher and deli were perfect.

A lovely clean, bright and comfortable cottage in a lively harbour town

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this cottage. It feels like a home from home. We have only ever been in the winter months and it is lovely and warm and cosy, I am sure in the summer it would be nice to make use of the little garden. It is a good spot to visit anywhere else in Cornwall with great beaches, the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan on your doorstep. I hope to be returning soon.

Lovely location for a late Autumn break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week. The cottage is pretty and tastefully furnished inside and out. The new super king bed was the best I've slept in!

We found the location to be excellent- far enough from the town to be quiet but within easy walking distance of Fowey to take advantage of the shops, pubs and restaurants. We used the main car park nearby and found the Rover ticket made life very easy, also allowing us to park in a number of other car parks without further charge. There are lots of lovely walks in the vicinity and so many places to visit we will have to return as a week was not long enough. Thank you for all your help Carol.
