Stunning Fowey, Charming Cottage, Beautiful Location,… just about perfect..

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Oct-2016
2 double bed cottage, estuary views, twin gardens, delightfully peaceful location; only 5mins to the village and 10 mins to the beach.

“Perfect Place” is a traditional granite block built eighteenth century former fisherman's cottage situated in the quiet heart of the famous, picturesque, and vibrant fishing village of Fowey; one of the most renowned and beautiful riverside villages in all Cornwall. Ideally situated on Rose Hill, it gives quick access; just 4/5 minutes’ walk; to the bustling village, yet is set back enough to maintain a quiet and tranquil setting for those moments of relaxation and rest which is an essential part of any holiday.

The property itself offers accommodation for up to six people through 2 bedrooms and a double sofa bed if required. There are two outside areas with a high walled, private courtyard garden for relaxing afternoons in the sun, BBQ’s and the essential evening sundowners. Through the nature of the aspect of the cottage, the rear garden has the benefit of sun all day round, from the moment the sun comes up over the estuary until the sun sets over Fowey Hill; at which point, it should be time to hit the village and sample the nightlife.

The village offers everything you could want; a wide and varied selection of shops from clothing, arts and craft, food/wine, and souvenirs; an extensive selection of pubs, bistros, and restaurants offering standard pub fayre all the way up to award winning fine cuisine. (word of warning; from experience the walk back up the hill can be a tad longer than the 4/5 minute walk down; not least depending on how much nightlife you sample ?)

The charming quayside offers a variety of ferry rides; including the five minute ride over to Polruan, fishing cruises, and self-drive motor boat hire… as well the opportunity to try your hand at crabbing and shrimping off the harbour wall. The beautiful Readymoney beach is a sight inspiring 10 minute walk from the village centre taking in some of the fantastic harbour and sea views that Fowey offers.

And for those not so great days; which our great country does “occasionally” experience, there is a great selection of books and board games. For the more visual minded, there is an extensive DVD collection; ranging from children’s movies, romantic comedies, action movies, box sets, thrillers, B/W classics, naturally there are a few James Bond’s to be found, and for any rugby fans; well there’s enough to keep you busy for a few days, especially if you’re a Lions fan. For any budding surfers, you have the benefits of some true classics..

About the Owner

I have been visiting Fowey for many years now, and finally decided to use this as a permanent base for family holidays. Given our love of water sports (Fowey has the lot), particularly sailing and kayaking, and the outdoors generally, not to mention good food; especially seafood(check out the Bouillabaisse at Sam's Bistro), it would be difficult to find a better, more “Perfect Place”. This is where we wind down, chill, relax.. whatever you call it these days, and is somewhere we look forward to coming back to, from the moment we leave until the moment we roll back down the hill into the village for that first view of the river and sea.

Great cottage, lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage which is very comfortable with a great terrace garden, great location in Fowey just towards the top of town but close to everything, really helpful owner who couldn't do enough and knows Fowey really well so you will feel you have everything you need before you arrive.

Wonderful Cottage, Wonderful Holiday... Great Host

  • 5 of 5

My family and our little dog arrived at the cottage on a lovely sunny day in August to find a super welcome pack a waiting for us (our host allowed us to choose our wines / beers), which after our drive from Scotland was extremely welcome. The children loved the outside decked area and over the ten days we stayed we all made good use of it from sunbathing to games of quoits, and BBQ’s. The cottage was clean, everything in good working order and very comfortable… it did feel like home away from home. It’s in an ideal position for exploring Fowey; which we fell in love with; its many walks, and the local area.

Our host was really first class. He sent us an excellent guide (his own take) on all the local walks, pubs, restaurants, and drives. The in-house guide book to the cottage including tips for guests was very insightful and very amusing. Our host arranged for a mid-week turnover to freshen the place up at no charge and what really impressed was his late night email to warn us of local roadworks and suitable routes around which probably saved us two or three hours.

Quite simply, we all had a wonderful holiday which was complemented by the lovely cottage and a great host with a personal touch for whom nothing seemed too much trouble. We have booked again and cannot wait to enjoy it all again next year.

Delightful sunny cottage in central Fowey

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in this comfortable cottage, close to the town centre. The owner was very helpful and gave us information about the local area. The cottage had everything you would need for a comfortable stay . A very sunny aspect at the back with a new wooden decking. The biggest bonus for us however was the fact the owner agreed to let's us bring our Dogs, I would recommend this property .

Location

From the Owner

I have been visiting Fowey for the last 20 years and finally took the plunge to buy this year. From my first visit, I fell for the place, its superb range of shops, pubs, restaurants, walks, and water activities. Over those years I have travelled the length and breadth of Cornwall and can honestly say I have never found anywhere else that had the same vibrancy, variety, coupled with the views, and that wonderful feeling of being close enough to see and feel the ocean, but having the sanctity of harbour. But perhaps the biggest reason, the biggest driver, was the feeling of relaxation that sweeps over you in those first few hours there.. and that's whether your just casting your eyes out to sea, or sitting enjoying that first, refreshing drink. Come experience it, you wont regret it.
