Fabulous Fowey again!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this lovely cottage, surprisingly spacious, excellent location and with own adjacent car parking space, a rarity indeed. We were pleased to see a few upgrades to the property also, all new carpeting, dishwasher and improved garden. Fowey is in a great position for visiting many of Cornwalls attractions, would not hesitate to return as we still have a long list of places to visit!

Quaint cottage, full of character, close to the village centre

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this quaint cottage minutes walk from centre of Fowey. A welcome letter, together with some essentials, such a tea and milk, on our arrival was much appreciated. The cottage has all the amenities you need for a self-catering break. The patio outside had a sunny orientation, and the living area was very comfortable. The location of the cottage is excellent...less than 5 minutes walk to the village centre. Fowey is well worth a visit, with plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs, and a wonderful coastal setting.

The cottage was lovely and very cosy , perfect for our Christmas getaway.

Well equipped and comfortable .

The location was great and to have a parking space there too.

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. Du Maurier Festival in May, Fowey Regatta August (ask for details). Consult the guide books & folders in the cottage & explore to your hearts content!
