Lovely house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay, the house is in a great location & near a car park which is fab for loading and unloading & going out for the day. My boys loved crabbing & the trip on the car ferry (by foot) to the pub in Bodinnick is a must!! The view is beautiful!

A perfect cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Shellseekers for 9 nights. The cottage is perfect, clean, modern, well equipped and comfortable. The location is equally perfect - we enjoyed amazing coastal walks as well as strolling into the centre in the evening. Shell seekers is within easy walking distance of great pubs and restaurants. Hardly used the car at all.

Beware of the double bed - it’s so comfy that it would be easy to stay all day and miss the beautiful things that Fowey has to offer!

Will definitely return.

A real gem in stunning Fowey

  • 5 of 5

We love Fowey it's such a magical place. There's plenty to see and do in Fowey and this is our 3rd visit, every time we've been we've been so lucky with the weather - so glad to return. We've so enjoyed our stay at The Shell Seekers - the cottage has just been renovated and it's gorgeous, so cosy and comfortable. We will definitely be back - thank you.

A stunning cottage in the most gorgeous village

  • 5 of 5

We had been looking forward to our stay on the Cornwall Coast for months and were not disappointed. We really enjoyed The Shell Seekers – a cosy, clean, and well-equipped cottage, everything we could need! The kitchen has recently been renovated and it’s gorgeous. It's a great base for exploring the area even if the narrow roads can be a challenge at times...and it's close to the water so I didn't have to walk far with my paddleboard - the estuary is just perfect for SUP trips.

Fowey is a fascinating old village with plenty of walks and a photographic paradise. We really enjoyed our stay which went all too quickly - thank you, we will definitely be back!

What a wonderful place.....

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in The Shell Seekers, it was very comfortable and cosy, the weather was great for this time of year. We love Fowey, this is our second visit this year. Good places to eat, The Ship, Haveners & Sams. Had a couple of good walks: The Hall Walk from Bodinnick and the walk from Readymoney along the coast path. we took a trip to Mevagissey on the boat and was fortunate enough to see some porpoise and a seal – we will definitely be back.

A charming house

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most enjoyable week in this lovely homely house situated in the heart of Fowey. A pretty little estuary town, it offers a mixture of fascinating architecture, is home to lots of lovely shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants of character. The house itself has everything you need for a most relaxing stay, comfy beds, lovely furniture, cosy lounge and a pretty back garden on a few levels – it’s prefect for al fresco dining and of course, a glass of wine or two! If you love sailing – Fowey is the perfect holiday destination, we also did lots of walking and the views are breath-taking. All in all a stunning house in a stunning location, the only negative was having to leave! We will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
