About the Owner

We fell in love with Fowey after a weekend visit in 2001. When exploring Fowey we walked along Harbour View and dreamed of someday owning a house there. As you do, we came home and searched estate agents and 3 Harbour View was for sale but under offer. Some things are meant to be. That offer fell through and the rest is history.

3 Harbour View is the perfect holiday house for our family. We love coming down to Fowey and never tire of the view of the harbour. We have 3 children who are now in their late teens and who have loved growing up with regular holidays here.

We have rented out the house since we bought it via various agencies but joined Owners Direct in 2014.

Wonderful position!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & i & our four teenage sons stayed at Harbour View for a few days over half-term.

Contact with Anne, the owner, prior to the visit, was always efficient & friendly & all instructions were clear & helpful.

Anne had warned us that the road up to the cottage was very narrow but my husband under-estimated just how narrow & took our mini-van (borrowed for the occasion) up this tiny lane. Needless to say he regretted it & there then ensued a nerve-wracking half hour or so while he attempted to get the van to the cottage without taking out any of the neighbouring houses especially the one on the bend..the poor elderly lady who lived there watching on nervously!!! I had to get out & direct, it was a stressful & anxious start to the holiday (at one point i did think he was going to get wedged) & the fabulous view from the cottage's vantage point didnt even register. My husband was humbled...Anne had warned us...needless to say once we had unloaded & managed to get safely back out of the lane we left the van parked up at the nearby car-park for the rest of the stay!! Heed Anne..if you are in a large vehicle DO NOT attempt to drive up to the cottage!

Drama over, the cottage was characterful & welcoming, clean & warm. We had been left a Welcome Pack of teabags, milk, biscuits & wine (much needed after the lane escapade) which was a nice gesture,especially as we had forgotten to bring our own teabags. The cottage was well-equipped, i cant think of one thing it didnt have, a cliched term maybe but it really was a home from home. What makes Harbour View stand out however is its position & the glorious views across the estuary. The front bedroom has two chairs & a little table positioned in the bay window perfect for a morning cuppa while you sit & just take it all in.

I could have sat there for ages watching the boats trundle across.

Fowey was picture postcard stuff & our too-brief visit was thoroughly enjoyed. My husband & i intend to return for longer one day..minus the kids & the van!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. Comfortable, clean, well equipped, great location and the views are incredible. Lovely spot to watch the moon rise over the river and the sun rise from bed in the morning. Anne was really helpful and the welcome tray was a very thoughtful touch. Highly recommend.

Can't wait to return to this place!

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Spacious, can fit 6 easily or maybe 8, lovely light pouring in through the windows, stunning views, clean, very welcoming. Lots of nice touches! I forgot my robe on the back of a door, and they sent it on to me. Definitely one to recommend. I would definitely choose this place to return again and again.

Wow

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotless and spacious. Lots of nice touches inside.

The views are stunning, location central, with a nice short cut to the shops. The area was very quite

The kids loved Readymoney Cove which was a short walk away

Highly recommended

Excellent...pure and simple

  • 5 of 5

I'm torn between giving the review this place deserves and lying through my teeth so no-one else stays here......

Why stay anywhere else?

Location is central but no too close which makes it quiet, it was only three minutes to the local bakery. The views are amazing, it took me three to four cups of tea to get my other half to move downstairs from the view out of the main bedroom window.

For once the kitchen was well equipped so you could cook like you do back home. All the rooms are a good size and the kids loved having the top floor to themselves which was a bonus as we didn't have to worry about keeping them up.

The only word of caution is the parking. It does state that the parking is a little tight but we managed fine with my wife's E-Class estate. It is actually the access that is the most difficult part but if you can drive properly and take your time then it is no problem....and an E-Class estate is circa five meters long! Besides, it is the fact it is an dead end which makes it so quiet. As it happens we only used the car once.

Other stuff to do.....ferry across to Pulruan and go to the Lugger Inn. Book in advance but not too early for lunch as not all the seafood will be in. Then convince your fellow diners to order something different and share in an English Tapas way. Try the Kayaking on Fowey itself going upstream past the chain ferry, so relaxing but tiring at the same time a work out. Combine with the pub above for a guilt free pig out!!!

a house with fabulous views

  • 4 of 5

spacious, comfortable, and cosy home. the view from the lounge and front bedroom was fabulous. The lounge seat in the bay window gave us a clear view of the estuary The house is Very well equipped, and good to have the parking space in Fowey. The road is very narrow but manageable, thankfully there was space in nos 5 to turn the car around. We loved Fowey, the house, Sams restaurant in the village, and hope to come back soon

Location

From the Owner

We love Fowey. It is a town that has a great atmosphere regardless of the season. There is always a lot to do, even if it is just sitting in the window watching the world go by! Fowey has great food shops and the walking in the area is fabulous. We often come down to Fowey and don't move our car for a week.
