Two Bedroom Loft Apartment Overlooking St Fimbarrus Church & Its Grounds

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Dec-2016
Sail Loft - A Stylish & Cosy apartment in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Tucked Away From The Main Path, Yet A Mere Minutes Walk From The Centre Of Fowey & Its Quay

A delightful two bedroomed loft apartment in the centre of Fowey. Airy & stylish with high ceilings and exposed roof timbers, the apartment provides you with a perfect 'bolt hole' in which you can relax and recharge your batteries! Sail Loft is situated in a quiet location, next to St Fimbarrus Church, yet is only a minutes walk from the fabulous shops, restaurants, bars/pubs & bustling quay. Fowey is renowned for its sailing & water activities, coastal walks, quaint streets and shops in which you could easily while away the hours. The beaches of Whitehouse and Readymoney are all within walking distance. Throughout the year there are a number of festivals and events which bring both locals and holiday makers together, from the popular festival of words and music each May, the Beer & Mussel festival in June, the famous Fowey Regatta, which runs for a week during August ... with the incredible Red Arrows putting in an appearance! For the more energetic, there is the Fowey Triathlon held in September, and to put you in the Christmas spirit there is a Christmas market at the end of the year! Theres always something to do and see, whatever time of year you choose to visit this beautiful part of Cornwall.

About the Owner

We have spent many happy holidays in Cornwall, over the years, with our three boys, our family and friends. We discovered Fowey, however, only two or three years ago! Whilst travelling around Cornwall, we came across Fowey as we looked for somewhere to stay overnight .... and that was it, we loved everything about it! This year (2014) we decided to make a return weekend visit to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. When we noticed Sail Loft was for sale, we acted on impulse ... and a new adventure began!! Fowey is a friendly, warm Cornish fishing village, and the Sail Loft perfectly located, tucked away from the bustle, yet seconds from the warm welcome that awaits you! We really hope you love it as much as we do ... we think you will!

What a wonderful apartment, its tucked away but in the middle of everything ! Even when we arrived we did have a problem finding it but a phone call to jayne and she guided us straight to it . Fowey is a fantastic place, our only downfall was that three days wasn't long enough. Our hosts were brilliant explaining everything about the apartment , places to go and places to eat .

A wonderful short break

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful long weekend at the Sail Loft. The location is perfect with town right on your doorstep with lovely restaurants, pubs and shops including bakeries, delis and a small shop to cater for all requirements.

As others have mentioned the loft is more spacious than pictures would suggest, light and beautifully clean.

We would love to stay again on our next visit to beautiful Fowey.

Fantastic place to stay in Fowey

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, it is very well placed next to the church in the centre of Fowey. It has been furnished to a high standard and was clean and warm when we arrived on a cold, rainy day in February. We had to contact the owners before our visit as there had been a hiccup with the Owners Direct booking but this was quickly sorted and the owners could not have been more helpful, they were very prompt in replying and gave us lots of helpful information, especially regarding parking. We found being near to Kittows delicatessen a real bonus, especially useful for buying things we could eat back at the Sail Loft. We had visited Fowey a long time ago and loved the Hall walk but the weather wasn't on our side this time. It was still nice to walk along to Readymoney Cove and further along the cliffs.

You do need to park up the hill as there is no parking by the Sail Loft but we were aware of this before we booked and this is the same for most of the places when staying in Fowey.

We've visited Cornwall a lot over the years and Sail Loft is definitely one of the best places we've stayed in.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. We are glad you had a good time in Fowey, despite the weather, which sadly is something non of us can predict, yet we find, with the fabulous shops, pubs ... and of course Kittows, spirits can be lifted on a wet day fairly easily. Hall walk is always a must when staying in Fowey, but not when its wet and muddy underfoot. The walk to Readymoney Cove is a lovely alternative - and the views across to Polruan stunning (even better when the sun shines!) We are glad you found Sail Loft cosy and comfortable. We have tried to create a 'home from home' atmosphere, and its always good to hear that a stay in the Loft has ticked the boxes! Once again thank you again for taking the time to write the lovely review! Best wishes to you, Jayne & David

Perfection in Fowey

  • 5 of 5

The sail loft is just scrumptiously perfect, decor is immaculate, chocolate box pretty, overlooking the beautiful church and in the heart of the town. The owners have left no detail overlooked, it is stunning and cosy. We will definitely return

A gem in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotlessly clean with everything you need for the perfect home from home. Situated right in the centre of Fowey tucked away with views of St Fimbarrus church. So convenient for all the pubs, restaurants and shops that Fowey as to offer.

We would definitely recommend Sail Loft

A beautiful loft in wonderful Fowey

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive we were welcomed by the cozy, warm and spotlessly clean Sail Loft and we felt at home instantly.

The Sail Loft is so very comfortable, with its large settees and deep chairs we had a very relaxing week, despite the long walks around the beautiful surrounding countryside. The light and airy feel of the loft is no doubt due to its large windows and vaulted ceiling and all the rooms are beautifully decorated.

The loft had all the modern amenities you could desire, the kitchen was fully equipped and allowed us to cook a couple of lovely meals after buying the most wonderfully fresh ingredient from Kittows deli which is no more than 25 meters from the front door!

Fowey itself is a wonderful little town with independent shops and restaurants and many good pubs for a pint of cider! We would definitely recommend The Lugger, Prince of Prussia and The Ship Inn for food, the latter being literally 30 seconds walk away.

The loft is perfectly located right in the heart of Fowey. Everything is on your door step, but being tucked away allows you to escape back to your own little bolt hold overlooking the Church and its peaceful grounds in minutes.

Needless to say we will definitely be back and have already recommended the Sail Loft to friends and family!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the glowing review! We are thrilled you had a relaxing week & enjoyed some of the many beautiful walks surrounding Fowey. Also pleased you had the opportunity to sample some of the delicious food in the recommended pubs & enjoyed a few of Kittows delicacies! We believe you had an added bonus of some fabulous late, warm, Summer sunshine too! Thank you for recommending us to family & friends & we look forward to welcoming you & your family back to Sail Loft again sometime soon. With our best wishes Jayne & David

Our first time in Fowey and what a place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The Sail Loft located right in the heart of the village just as its

description on the website.As we opended the door our first impressions where good but they just got better as the our stay went on.Its quite clear that the owners David and Jayne take a lot of care in providing excellent accommlodation it was spotlessly clean,comfortable and very well equipped.

Being in the village it meant we could enjoy the restaurants,pubs and local shops without having to drive.There are also two local ferries which adds to the exploration attraction and opens up the challange of further walks.We will be back and we will highly recommend the

Sail Loft to our family and friends.

Facilities

From the Owner

The Sail Loft is a lovely seaside apartment, set right in the middle of Fowey, yet it is tucked away, and just a moments stroll from the fabulous Butchers, deli and many beautiful shops, cafes & restaurants that this bustling fishing village boasts. Once you have parked your car, there really is no need for you to use it again until you have to say 'goodbye 'til next time'. There are beautiful coastal walks, boat trips, fishing trips, beaches, restaurants, bars/pubs and fabulous cafes catering for all tastes. There are small high street shops, such as Fatface, Seasalt and Boots, as well as many individual shops selling beautiful and unusual gifts and crafts, all well worth a visit!
