About the property

Pretty 2-bedroom cottage sleeping up to 4, located in Fowey, Cornwall

The Shippen is a pretty, 2-bedroom, stone-built, holiday cottage sleeping up to four set in the tranquil historic town of Fowey in Cornwall.

The pet friendly cottage is one of a small cluster of barn conversions nestling in the heart of two and a half acres of Lawhyre landscaped gardens.

Completely surrounded by fields, yet only a short walk to Readymoney Beach, this secluded cottage offers a relaxed self-catering holiday location in one of Cornwall's prettiest coastal towns.

The Shippen is a detached single story Cornish barn sympathetically renovated into a cosy cottage. It has thick stone walls, exposed beams and central heating, providing a homely setting all year round.

The cottage is equipped to a high standard and boasts a large, bright open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, a bathroom and two bedrooms sleeping up to four. The bedrooms include a good sized double and a nice twin, which is accessed via the main bedroom.

Outside, the cottage has its own individual private garden with lawn, hedge and stone walls - offering a secluded and safe space for both children and dogs. The beautiful flower and shrub borders, gravel patio and garden furniture make an idyllic setting to enjoy the lovely views of the countryside.

The Shippen is set within well-maintained landscaped gardens, which are shared with the other onsite properties. Within the communal gardens is a children's play area, a BBQ area and clothes lines. There is also a large parking area available at the cottage.

The Shippen overlooks open fields at the head of a pretty wooded valley leading to the beach at Readymoney Cove, a gentle 10 minute stroll through trees and wild flowers.

Brochures, maps, guidebooks and information on the locality are provided in the cottage.

Up to two dogs are welcome at The Shippen to accompany you during your stay.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well maintained and well equipped cottage. We felt very comfortable there and had a fabulous weeks holiday. A number of light bulbs not working in the kitchen on arrival but this was swiftly dealt with once mentioned.hopefully will return another year.

A perfect setting for a peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to the Shippen and the peaceful location with easy access to exceptional walks will I am sure bring us back on the future. The property is equiped and maintained to a very high standard although it is important to remember it is a rural setting and an old farm building so you will share your time there with the odd spider. As a couple with a dog the property is perfect but it should be noted that bedroom two is only accessible from the main bedroom, perfect for young children but perhaps more difficult for an all adult group.

The walk to the sea is only 15 mins and the view of the bay is always worthy of a picture. The Shippen is on the edge of Fowey but access by foot is easy. In the town there is real selection of eating places whether you want a pasty, fish and chips, very good pub food or even tapas. Both the Shippen and Fowey are highly recommended.

Exceptional cottage in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, clean & very comfortable cottage. Customer service excellent. Highly recommend. Excellent location. And Tesco 15 min away in St Austell. Thank you for all the care to maintain such a lovely cottage.

Small items to consider: Suggest a shower curtain would work better to contain water in shower.

Extra paper towels and toilet paper on hand.

Better clothes pins as the plastic ones kept breaking

The step from house into the private garden is a bit tricky, especially if you have bad knees :))

The Shippen st Fowey was a Cornish gem

  • 5 of 5

Warm comfortable spotlessly clean lots of interesting handcrafted items. Nice private garden for morning exercises and sunny patio garden even in November. Lots going in Fowey and surrounding area pre Christmas. Readymoney beach a good walk and well worth visiting. Would love to return in summer time to see cornwall in full bloom

Other Activities:

Golf can be enjoyed at the nearby Carlyon Bay, whilst the Fowey Regatta is one of the seasons highlights for visitors to the town.

Please note for a small additional cost guests staying at The Shippen can use the facilities of The Spa at Fowey Hall Hotel, which is just a few minutes' walk from the cottage. At The Spa is an indoor heated swimming pool, an outdoor hot tub, a spa offering treatments and products, and a restaurant. The pool and hot tub are open daily from 8am to 8pm.

The pretty seaside town of Fowey in Cornwall is home to Readymoney Beach, a gorgeous sandy cove perfect for all the family. Located just a 10 minute walk from the cottage, the beach sits at the mouth of the River Fowey and is great for swimming with a platform available for those with a little experience. At low tide there are rock pools to discover and often an ice-cream van sits nearby. Dogs are allowed on this beach in the off season.

Other local beaches within easy reach include Par Sands, Polkerris, Polridmouth Cove, Whitehouse, Polruan Quay, Lantic Bay and Lansallos Beach. A few of these permit dogs all year round, so are well worth visiting in staying with your pets.

Within Fowey, which was the home of author Daphne Du Maurier there are several restaurants and shops. The area, which is also designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is ideal for walkers with the coast path easily accessed.
