Overview

About the property

Apartment in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Modern apartment with river views, reserved parking and only 5 minutes level walk to town centre.

Slipway Apartment is a modern second floor apartment .There is a lift and reserved parking. Parking in Fowey is difficult, especially in season so to have your own space just across the road is incredibly useful. You can even access the apartment without needing to negotiate the one way system in Fowey. Fowey's central street, Fore Street, is just a 5 minute mainly level walk away. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a 5ft bed and 1 with a 3ft single bed and space for a cot which can be provided. The living room has river views and the whole apartment is modern, smart and very well equipped including a 50 inch plasma TV.

Included in the rental is linen, house towels, essentials welcome pack, heating as needed and end of rental clean. With the apartment being so lovely and warm in winter and so much to do in Fowey, it makes it as good for a winter's break as in summer.

There is no outside space but the view of the river from the living room is always of interest with so much going on. The ferry to Bodinnick just outside the apartment runs all day and there is seating next to the water here. Great for crabbing and watching the world go by.

Fowey has a wealth to do within the town. There are numerous good eateries, both restaurants and bars/pubs including some with terraces on the waterfront; perfect for an afternoon tea or a summers evening. Fowey is renowned for sailing and water activities and it is easy to get on the water. There is a public slipway right outside the apartment, and you can hire canoes and boats locally as well as take boat trips from the bustling town quay. Coastal walking is a delight in summer and winter with the famous Hall Walk literally on your doorstep, and there are plenty of places to visit in the area including the Eden Project.

An excellent choice for a holiday or short break.

About Suzy and Andy Matthews

We live near Bristol and love escaping to Cornwall, so the next logical step was to buy a place to call our own. Fowey has been a special place in our hearts since celebrating our Silver Wedding there a few years ago. We now, as well as this property, have business interests in the area.

Fowey is a magical place. It has so much going on. We want to be able to share Slipway Apartment with others so that others might discover how fabulous Fowey is and how much it has to offer. We are also on Facebook, Slipway Apartment, Fowey.

Suzy and Andy Matthews purchased this apartment in 2015

Stunning Apartment - Comfort with elegance

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment - excellently maintained and extremely comfortable. Within very easy walking of the town centre with great choices of pubs and restaurants (The Ship being our favorite). Close to the estuary and great for walks - The Hall Walk over the car ferry and back by water taxi being just beautiful.

Good location for trips out - St Mawes and Marizon being our favourites.

A fabulous beach walk at Perranporth and shops at Truro are all easy to get to.

A very enjoyable week - thankyou

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. The Hall Walk is one of our favourites too, particularly in more inclement weather. Pleased to hear that The Ship continues to serve good food.

Great place to meet our needs.

  • 5 of 5

SlipAway is a very clean, modern apartment that exactly fit the needs of our 6 night stay. There was so much to do and access without having to get on the road again--just left the car in the provided spot. The bottle of Prosecco was very welcome after a day on the road. We appreciated the local hiking information and maps too. The extra bedroom was very useful for laying out our luggage as the bedrooms are small but living area and bathroom are generous size.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent apartment - great location on the quayside, modern, well furnished, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Also has a reserved parking space just across the road. Lovely view from living room window towards the river and the car ferry to Bodinnick. It's only a short walk into the centre of Fowey which is a lovely little town with lots of interesting shops and restaurants.

We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return some time in the future as we really loved this area.

A very well equipped apartment in a good location within easy walking distance of Fowey

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in great condition. Having a parking space is a real bonus. The open plan kitchen lounge is lovely and light and airy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only improvement we could suggest is to have some wardrobes as there is insufficient hanging space/storage specially when staying for a week.

Owner's Response: Thankyou for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are delighted you had a good time and that the apartment was to your liking. I am aware that, even though there are plenty of hooks and coathangers in the bedrooms, that this is not everyone's taste so we are intending to put up a proper wardrobe. Do hope you are able to return.
