Overview

About the property

House in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Prime Location In The Heart Of Beautiful Fowey, 15mins Walk To Readymoney Cove/Beach

Dating from the 1880s, this recently fully refurbished townhouse combines a superb location in the centre of Fowey with spacious living arrangements. The property has been tastefully and thoughtfully decorated throughout with flagstones on the ground floor and original wooden floors, staircases and bannisters as you head upwards. Each room has its own individual character, giving the house a boutique feel, from the featured modern stained glass window downstairs to the industrial light fittings in many of the bedrooms and the exposed beams in the master suite.

The three-storey property is on Fowey's main street, just a few steps from the quay with its shops, ferry to Polruan, restaurants and pubs. It is also a perfect jumping-off point for trips further afield, whether to access Cornwall's beautiful coasts or visit attractions such as the Eden Project or the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The house has much to offer, whether for couples looking for a relaxed getaway, walkers and dog owners seeking an escape after a hard day on the Cornish cliffs, or families running straight into the downstairs shower room to wipe away the sand from a day on the beach surfing and making sand castles.

The house has central heating, underfloor heating in the main bathroom and kitchen and a wood burning stove in the lounge. Logs are provided for your first fire - perfect for snuggling up on those chilly winter nights.

Good Wi-Fi throughout the property makes planning trips easy and means teenagers needn't fear they'll be cut off from Facebook!

By arrangement only, well behaved dogs are welcome downstairs at a small additional charge.

About Katherine

We feel an emotional connection to Fowey having visited for many years - in fact we held our wedding celebrations at the Fowey Hotel. Soon after, we fell in love with this unspoilt Cornish gem with a bustling harbour and a picturesque estuary. It's a wonderful and relaxing place - with great food, drink and pasties! - and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The property is managed for us by Katherine, who lives in Fowey so is on hand for any problems.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for a fantastically comfortable stay. We've had a wonderful time. A highlight for our 2yr old was definitely when the town band (of Elves) passed the window to collect Father Christmas! See you again!

Lovely spot,

  • 5 of 5

Went to stay here for 3 nights. We have to say it was perfect for what we wanted. Nice and close to the centre of Fowey with it lovely pubs a restaurants. The house was spotless and had everything we needed, the beds were nice and comfy and it was really quiet. The only downside is parking, there are 2 car parks one by the ferry and one further on, both cost about £6.50 for 24 hours, both are a good hike from the house. There is only one road in and we had to offload the car quickly in the hope that another car didn't come round. That said it is a small inconvenience as once you are there everything is within walking distance. A very enjoyable weekend away we will be going back again.
