About Julie Yardley

Hello holiday hunters, we fell in love with Fowey about 10 years ago when we bought our first holiday home, Izzyminx Seaview. We caught the Fowey bug and decided to expand and bought Izzyminx Captains Lodge and Izzyminx Harbour House. All our places needed some renovations which has taken a lot of hard work, time and effort, but have been well worth it. We live in Fowey in the winter and go travelling in our camper van during the summer. We love Fowey, love our places and hope you will too. Please ask any questions and we will be happy to help. Julie & Phil x

Julie Yardley purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Yardley chose Fowey

Fowey (pronounced Foy) is a lovely old fishing village full of character with many narrow streets, lots of lovely eating places, watering holes, groovy shops and art galleries. Fowey is more a sailing port in recent years and has a large sailing community passing through which gives the place a buzz all year round. If you like places with lots of character, culture, good food, beer and company, this is the place or you.

What makes this house unique

Spectacular sea views from Harbour House which is a gorgeous Victorian house. The top two floors have great views of Polruan, the estuary, the open sea and beyond. Sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and enjoys the sea views and people watching. Fantastic. The property is located on the most prestigious street in Fowey and is only a 2 minute walk to the town centre.
