A cute, cosy seaside themed home with everything for a family of four to relax and unwind. The addition of the pool and outside games at Fowey Hall was wonderful and much appreciated by all. Carol was a super host replying to questions and keeping us informed of details. We have fallen in love with Fowey and the little cottage and can't wait to be back beside the seaside!
