Luxury 2 bedroom apartment in Fowey with parking

Overview

Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
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 a 2ft 6ins pull out bed. 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 the Owner

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.

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.

An exceptional apartment, spotlessly clean, well equipped and in a great position on the quayside - a lovely walk into town.

We would definitely return.

Owner's Response: So pleased you had a good time. The 5 min walk into town is indeed more than just the way into town. Look forward to welcoming you back.

Location

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

There are 2 main beaches in Fowey, Readymoney and Whitehouse both within walking distance from Slipway Apartment. Larger beaches are a longer walk (Lantic) or a drive away, Par Sands and Polkerris Beach. Polkerris is well known for its watersports activities and here you can hire paddle boards and sailing dinghys.

Travel:

Newquay Airport (flights from other UK airports) is about 25 miles away.

Par railway station is on the line from London Paddington to Penzance and is only 5 miles away, so a short taxi journey.

Distances:

Eden Project is about 25 mins by car. Fabulous day out. The North Cornwall surfing beaches are well within the hour. There are national trust properties and gardens nearby too.

Further Details:

You will run out of days before you bore of Fowey and the surrounding area. Pop over to Polruan on the passenger ferry for a leisurely stroll and a morning coffee. There are coves to explore and breathtaking views on many coastal walks. Shopping is easy. Kittows is a delight of a delicatessen and Fowey Fish always has local fish for sale. The many independent shops ( as well as some household names!) are great for a wander and some retail therapy. There are spas located both in Fowey (Fowey Hall Hotel) and nearby at Trenython Monor.
