Cottage With Superb Panoramic River Views From Terraced Garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 24-Nov-2016
Cottage in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Central Location. Local Beach Within Walking Distance

Upalong Cottage is a quaint and charming Grade II listed traditional Cornish cottage built on a solid rock face in the centre of Fowey and extremely attractive and quirky in its design.

The cottage is ideal for a couple or a couple with young children and it can sleep a maximum of 4 people. The main town quay, shops, supermarket, colourful restaurants, pubs and the local beach of Readymoney Cove are all within walking distance.

The property enjoys river views from the sitting room and main bedroom with further glimpses from additional rooms. The private terrace garden above the property provides a great outdoor area with table and chairs and a comfortable summerhouse. The panoramic views of the river from here are truly spectacular.

There are exposed beams to the character low ceiling in the Living Room where there is a large exposed stone fire surround and chimney breast with a gas coal effect fire. In common with similar cottages in Fowey the living room has restricted headroom due to the exposed wooden beams. Head clearance in between the beams is 1.85m ( 6'1"). There are two bedrooms on the first floor, one of which includes an en-suite bathroom. A second bathroom is located on the next landing by the back door at the top of the property. An external set of steps leads up to the terrace garden with spectacular panoramic views over the River and the rooftops of Fowey. The terrace backs onto the boundary rock wall of Place House thus affording excellent privacy.

Great location and fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage, it is exactly as described and the owner couldn't have been more helpful. Located right in the heart of Fowey with shops, pubs & restaurants nearby.

The cottage is very clean and the garden terrace has a beautiful view, though take care going up the steps as they are very steep.

Parking is a 5 minute walk down the road, you can buy a weekly ticket from the tourist board for £48 but the ticket allows you to park in any long stay car park in Cornwall.

2 bathrooms is a bonus, small but well equipped kitchen, lots of wardrobe space, useful info left in the cottage.

Definitely recommend Upalong cottage, but just be aware if you are very tall as the lounge ceiling is quite low though that is in the description.

Cosy little cottage in the old town

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in the middle of the beautiful old town of Fowey, nearby are some restaurants (even non-English!) as well as shops like bakeries, supermarkets and Pubs. The street is very narrow, so it's a little bit diffucult to drive along the appartement. But there are parking spaces nearby, so it is no problem and you always have a bit of sport in the morning.

The cottage itself is small but cosy and the view from the terrace into the bay is gorgeous. There are 3 stairs which are quite narrow and steep, so the morning training is going on. It's not perfekt for people with knee problems. My mother was with us and it was a little bit hard for her to get up the stairs.

But that was the only problem, we had everything we needed, the beds are comfortable and the main bathroom has a modern shower. The kitchen is fully furnished. The cottage is clean and well taken care of.

We had a wonderful time there and would recommand the cottage for a stay in Cornwall.

Lovely Little Cottage in the Heart of Fowey

  • 5 of 5

Upalong Cottage is ideally situated on Fowey main street, a few yards from restaurants and shops. Parking nearby is restricted to a short stay car park with about 10 spaces, which if you are lucky enough to get in is very useful for loading/unloading the car. There is just enough room to park a small car outside the cottage whilst you unload, otherwise you have no option but to block the road! Long stay parking is available about 400 metres from the cottage, and it is worth getting a weekly permit from Cornwall County Council website or by phone.

The cottage itself is delightful. Steps lead up from the front door to the sitting room, which is cosy and comfortable but would be tight for a family of four - perfect for a couple. The windows have an elevated view of the main street and through to the estuary. Also on this level is the galley kitchen, well fitted and equipped although a freezer compartment in the fridge would have been useful. Upstairs is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and a modern shower room ensuite. There is also a twin bedroom with further wardrobe storage. More stairs to a bathroom with electric shower, then steep steps onto the roof terrace. This is stunning, with unimpeded views across the estuary to Polruan. There is a bench, a table with four chairs and a lovely summer house with loungers and even a little sound system. It is completely private and we spent many happy hours just watching the activity on the water.

Everything was spotlessly clean and in good condition. The owner's communications before we arrived were comprehensive and helpful. We would have no hesitation in recommending Upalong Cottage and we hope to make a return visit soon.

Quaint traditional cottage in centre of fowey

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in this quaint cottage that is set in the centre of the village ! The views from the terraced garden at the top of the property are amazing ! The steps up to it are fairly steep ! The summer house is lovely with a settee and all the garden furniture you need to feel home from home ! Even a music system ! The cottage has everything you need for a really comfortable stay ! Just watch the low ceiling as you enter and in the lounge ! But it does say about this in the property description !

Carlos was great and really easy to book with and answered all our questions prior to our arrival ! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay !

Lovely gem of a cottage in central Fowey

  • 5 of 5

It was well equipped and of good quality throughout. carlos was very attentive and that made a real difference/

The low ceilings were fine with us as we are not tall, I would suggest being explicit about that in the brief (my brother came around and kept bashing his head!)

As discussed a spare key hidden somewhere would have been invaluable on the occasion we lost the key!

Many thanks for a great stay, I will certainly recommend upalong to others!
