Having built our home for our family in Fowey we know what a special place this town is. Our 3 grown up kids grew up on the beach, pier jumping, sailing, windsurfing and playing Sport in a safe, idyllic place.

Now with our children in their late teens we thought it would be lovely to give people the opportunity to enjoy our home and everything that Fowey and the surrounding area brings to make that perfect holiday ....

Emma Sixton purchased this house in 2004

Why Emma Sixton chose Fowey

We built this house in 2004 after having the perfect opportunity of buying some land. It was a perfect place to bring our family up, with exceptional schools, beautiful beaches and only a stroll to our restaurants for work. The children learnt to Sail, windsurf and spent most evenings on the beach pier jumping and fishing. What isn't perfect about that for an upbringing!

Still need convincing about what a beautiful place Samsenet in Fowey is ?

Great house for the whole family

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and tidy, large enough for all of us (8 adults and 3 children) and had everything we needed. We loved the stylish, split level interior of the property and would happily stay again. Everyone we dealt with regarding the house, Emma, Laura, Emma and Ed were great and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The only minor negatives we found were the mattresses in the kids bedroom had seen better days and could do with replacing and the property could do with a bit of TLC in places, however these things did not affect the enjoyment of our stay in the house or the holiday as a whole. Fowey is a wonderful place to visit, we really enjoyed our lunch at Sams, our visit to Ready Money Cove and the boat ride on the river.

Great property for larger parties

  • 5 of 5

Lovely views across the rooftops of Fowey and down to the river and out to sea. This property is well equipped and comfortable - just as shown in the details. Great to be able to park two cars on the property avoiding that big problem in Fowey and then walk down into the town. Lots to do in Fowey and lots of good places to eat. We had a good time.
