Return to Cornwall after 20 years
Fowey is wonderful and has everything you need restaurants, pubs, shops and lovely walks. Really enjoyed ferry trips Mevagissey and across the estuary.
Cobbs Well Cottge is lovely, however the allocated parking is very restricted and difficult for an estate car
We had a lovely week in this lovely cottage. It is very close to all amenities and had the added bonus of having a parking space.
The bedrooms were well layer out with enough room. The landing was lovely and the garden was well kept with views on Place church. We would definitely rent this property again.
Really pleasant cottage in a lovely area
We really enjoyed our stay, its was very comfortable and within a short walking distance to the town. Wed certainly book Cobbs Well again in the future.
Lovely quaint cottage in a great location
Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, great location in the centre of Fowey. Particularly useful to have a parking space. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.
Home from home
The Cottage was very cosy and completely equipped with everything we could possibly have needed. There was a nice selection of books to read, games, local guides and points of interest.
Everything was well maintained and cared for and it really felt like a home from home. The Cottage is perfectly located in Fowey with access to the town and harbour. My family and I spent a lovely week there together and were delighted with everything.
Excellent Stay at Cobbs Well
We had an excellent stay in Cobbs Well cottage with five persons in May.
It is a cosy cottage, the location is wonderful - quiet, but only a few steps from the center of Fowey with its shops, pubs and to the harbour. It is also a perfect starting point to the Hall walk, for hiking along the coast paths and to nearby attractions.
The cottage was very clean, also the linen and the towels provided. We had breakfast and meals in the little garden with fantastic views to the bell tower and the village.
Fowey (pronounced Foy) is one of the most iconic places in Cornwall. Set on the steep banks on the Fowey Estuuary, the narrow streets and alleys are just great to explore. Views of the harbour are dramatic just watching the activities in the harbour can keep you occupied for many hours! Life in Fowey revolves around the water. The local fishing fleet land the freshest catches and local specialities include mussels, oysters, clams, crab & lobster. There are some great restaurants and pubs around and nearby. Try one of Sam's restaurants or a little drive inland to the historic Crown Inn at Lanlivery is well worth the effort.Life on the water culminates in the middle of August with the Fowey Regatta Week where yacht racing takes place all week. Watch the historic Famouth Working Boats racing in the close confines of the estuary or enjoy the many festivities around the town. The highlight is without doubt the spectacular display by the Red Arrows who rate Fowey as one of their most dramatic displays because of the steep valley. There are countless attractions near to Fowey including the Eden Project, Lanhydrock House & Gardens and the beautiful Luxulyan Valley.The Eden project is 3 miles Fowey 3 miles. Lost Gardens of Heligan 10 miles. Almost on the doorstep Par duck ponds & woodland walks link to the Clay trails long distance cycle paths. For garden lovers there are many open gardens to explore including Marsh villa Garden just 50yds away! You are in the heart of Du Maurier country with many places to find on the literary trail.
