Overview

About the property

Cottage in Fowey, on the Cornish south coast. - Central Location, Easy Walk To Shops, Restaurants, Harbour And Beaches

A traditional stone built Cornish fisherman's cottage that has well stood the passage of nearly 300 years of history while Fowey has weathered pirates, buccaneers and civil war. But today, though still with it's near original exterior, it has been made comfortable and appealing for modern living. It has been sympathetically extended and refurbished to accommodate family living space with a generous cottage secluded garden, secure for young children to have fun or mum's and dad's to relax and chill.

About Peter Gleed

Hi, My name is Peter and my wife's name is Gill, we have enjoyed owning our lovely holiday home in Fowey since buying it in 1999 after a long search for... 'just the right one.' We are both retired and also live part-time in Oxfordshire. Our children are grown and scattered but they all love to come down to Fowey with our grandchildren to visit with us and enjoy all the fantastic Cornish beaches, water sports and a traditional friendly welcome with good honest food and drink. We hope that after visiting this site you will want to come and enjoy our home, The Bowshot Lady and our NEW addition Bowshot Cottage too.

Peter Gleed purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Peter Gleed chose Fowey

Bowshot Cottage, close to the harbour is a traditional Cornish 18th.Century Grade II listed charming cottage, beautifully refurbished with modern comforts and we fell in love...The cottage is close to the heart of the town and has soaked up all that lovely Cornish hospitality for over 250 years, an easy short stroll down to the harbour, shops and tasty restaurants come and enjoy!

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage has over the last 30 years been extended from its original size and sympathetically refurbished to suit modern 21st. Century living and we will continue to add comforts as and when we can between a flow of happy holiday guests. It enjoys a typical small contained garden that catches that Cornish sunshine for most of the day and is a haven in which to take five and enjoy a glass of chilled wine on a summer's afternoon.
