Overview

About the property

Apartment in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Located At The Top Of Fowey 10-15 Minutes Walk From Town Centre And Beach

Orchard View forms one of six sympathetically restored apartments in a period Regency Country House in Fowey. It is set in large beautifully maintained gardens and benefits from the use of an indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool (40' x 20'), sauna, and a changing room with shower and cloakroom. Orchard View is on the first floor, and has high ceilings, large Georgian windows and solid oak flooring. Outside there is parking for two cars. The nearest beach is Readymoney Cove, a ten-fifteen minute walk from the end of the garden via a picturesque wooded footpath known as The Parade. Readymoney Cove has a sandy beach with rock pools and safe swimming. Walkers can easily access the south west coast path and the Saint's Way from the gate at the end of the garden. Polkerris beach can be reached by both paths. Polriddmouth, which is a gently shelving beach and ideal for picnics and swimming, is a twenty minute walk. Par and Polkerris beaches are approximately a ten minute drive. Fowey town centre is a 10-15 minute walk.

SHOPPING

There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey (Sea Salt, Joules, Fat Face, and Mountain Warehouse) but its real charm lies with the wide range of boutique, unique and independent shops. Spend hours browsing them for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children toys and don't forget the old fashioned sweet shop!

There are also several bakeries and the fabulous Kittows deli. With two local stores, there may be no supermarket in Fowey, but you'll still find everything you need here. And all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

In the centre of Fowey there is also a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th church and a 15th century castle fort.

There are a variety of activities on the water, ranging from organised boat trips to canoe hire.

The closest permanent is Ready Money Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming.

There is also a tidal sea-pool hidden away at the Whitehouse Pier! Within a five-ten minute drive, you can be at Polkerris beach and Par Sands, and within a half hour drive there is Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan and Mevagissey.

There are many thousands of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 630 miles around the county, and The Saints Way is 27 miles from Fowey on the south coast, right across to Padstow on the north coast. The Fowey Hall Walk is much more manageable at 4 miles! Whether you enjoy the sea, woods, rivers, moors or fields, you will not be disappointed with the walks in Cornwall.

The closest major attractions are The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens Of Heligan. They really do have something for everyone and make a most enjoyable day out for children and adults.

For the green-fingered travellers, there are also many other great gardens - in fact, there are 12 Great Gardens of Cornwall!

If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Kidzworld at Cornucopia, Indoor Active, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. A small list of the many hundreds of places for families to visit!

Cornwall also has many wonderful National Trust and English Heritage sites.

TRANSPORT

There are three long stay car parks in Fowey, all run by Cornwall Council - you can get weekly and rover passes on their website or purchase tickets on arrival.

There is also a free car park opposite squire’s field on Park Road. There are no allocated spaces and can fill up quickly during the summer weeks.

The nearest train is Par Station, which has direct services from London Paddington and beyond. It's then a 10 minute taxi trip into Fowey.

The main bus stop in Fowey can be found outside the Safe Harbour pub, and the 24 & 25 First Kernow services stop here. There is also a fabulous bus stop at the end of Lankelly Lane, which has had a make-over by the people of Fowey to give a real enjoyable space while waiting for the bus.

Fowey also has its own town bus service which picks up from outside the church and runs to the car parks and some other destinations on request.

The closest airport is Newquay, which is around 30 minute away by car.

ABOUT YOUR PLACE

We are always able to offer short breaks between October and March. If you’re looking for a last minute getaway at other times of the year, drop us a message and we’ll see what we can do for you!

About Jane Flowerdew

We have been visiting Fowey for many years with family and friends. At the beginning of 2014 we decided that it was time to have a permanent place in Fowey, so that they could visit it more often. Orchard View fitted the bill perfectly as it is spacious and comfortable and a real 'Home from Home', with the added bonus of a beautiful garden and indoor/outdoor pool. We are delighted to offer our apartment to guests, and hope that they enjoy our holiday home as much as we do.

Jane Flowerdew purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Jane Flowerdew chose Newquay & St Austell area

We love Fowey for the town, the beaches, the sailing, the kayaking, the walking and the people. We have been holidaying here for years, and can think of no better place to be.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious accommodation, well equipped, clean and bright. Great base for walking into Fowey and exploring the local area. Parking for two cars is always a bonus in Cornwall. The use of the beautiful pool and well tended garden was also a bonus. We highly recommend this property.

Spacious, tasteful, clean and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

The property was enjoyed by three generations of our family, and all the members voted 10 out of 10, even the 4 year old!

The swimming pool especially was a hit with the younger generation, and the garden was the scene of a number of football games!

The communal open plan kitchen/lounge/diner was ideal for all members of the family to interact together, and for the adults to keep an easy eye on the children.

We would all certainly recommend the apartment to our friends and would love to come back again in the future.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely light spacious apartment in quiet location. Living area well furnished and roomy. Great having 2 en suite bathrooms and separate toilet and bathroom. Well equipped kitchen. Great having a pool on site.

Only slight complaint was that wi-fi wasn't always great, but when I contacted HomeAway they replied to all e-mails and tried to resolve the problem even though it was the Easter Bank holiday weekend. We left something behind, I notified HomeAway and offered to pay for it to be returned, but it was returned free of charge. Fantastic holiday, fantastic apartment. Would happily stay there again

Fabulous!

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful apartment, with plenty of room. well equipped and very quiet. Spotlessly clean, Lovely pool, and plenty of room to park. We had a great time here. ( 6 female family members!) the only negatives were the apartment wasn't very warm, apart from the lounge with the electric fire. And we were dissapointed not to have a hot bath.

Location

Special interest holidays:

Orchard view is well placed for keen walkers, having easy access to both the Coastal Path and the Saints Way. There are also other beautiful walks in the area.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is Readymoney Cove, a ten-fifteen minute walk from the end of the garden via a picturesque wooded footpath known as The Parade. Readymoney Cove has a sandy beach with rock pools and safe swimming. Walkers can access the south west coast path from here. Par and Polkerris beach are approximately a ten minute drive.

Travel:

The nearest train station is Par, with a main line rail link to London Paddington. Newquay Airport gives access to London Gatwick and other UK destinations.

Further Details:

There are plenty of shops and restaurants in Fowey. Sams on the Beach in Polkerris is a particularly popular restaurant, situated in the old lifeboat station and right on the beach. It does, however, get very booked up, so if you want to go there, I suggest that you book before you go on your holiday to avoid disappointment.

Tesco in St Austell will deliver , so pre shopping before you arrive is an option.
