Set in the centre of the idyllic picturesque seaside town of Fowey, this beautiful former fisherman’s cottage enjoys stunning river views.

Fowey is a picture-perfect place to explore, its pastel-coloured houses clinging to the steep hillside that overlooks the bay and the town of Polruan across the estuary. Many major events take place here every year including the Daphne du Maurier Literary Festival and the Royal Regatta. A range of activities can be enjoyed on the river, while surrounding it are wonderful countryside walks and glorious beaches. The town centre is also a delight to wander around with its independent shops, delicatessens, restaurants and cafes. Nearby days out include the historic port of Charlestown, the world-famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

On entering this charming property you will make your way  through the entrance hall up some steps to find the cosy and attractive sitting room. The sitting room is a comfy place to relax in, complete with Smart TV with Freeview as well as partial views towards the river. The family room is a good size, ideal whether you’re enjoying a family meal together or simply enjoying a quick bite to eat.  The modern and attractively designed kitchen area has everything you may need during your holiday including electric oven and hob, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. Heading upstairs, via a steep cottage-style staircase, you will find two bright comfortable spacious bedrooms: one double with lovely river views and one twin. There is also a bathroom, complete with shower over the bath and WC, which is reached via a step down.

Moving outside you will find a small rear yard with utility store with washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also additional storage space for storage of surfboards, wetsuits or walking boots etc. Parking is available in public car parks nearby (extra charge).

We love this cottage having just been for a second time (and booked for a third time). Its unspoilt, cosy and has all the essential mod cons you need. The location is perfect to walk into Fowey town, the beach (about 20 min walk) and near enough to carpark.

Great location looking over the River, ideal situated in the hear of Fowey for exploring the town and tasting the local cuisine. The cottage itself had everything we needed, very comfortable, very much appreciated the cream tea and bottle of wine.

The marketing description was deceiving. There was no view of the estuary unless you screwed your neck at the window that was very disappointing. The upstairs was clean and nice but the downstairs needed changes to the flooring to make it more hygienic. I.e wood not carpeted.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
