Built in 1826, "Captains Row" was the home of Capt Bate, an old sea captain. It is right on the River Fowey. Beautifully refurbished in 2006, it has all of the amenities of a luxury holiday home that is regularly used by it’s owners. The views are stunning and there are two balconies from which to watch the bustling life of the river – from yachts to freighters, and fishing boats to traditional gig racers. This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and when you stand on a balcony looking at the view, it is easy to see why! Listen to the cry of seagulls, watch cormorants fly over the water, and maybe see a kingfisher flash past in a glitter of colour. Fowey retains its unique, unspoiled charm, with its narrow winding streets, old fashioned pubs and variety of shops. It is within easy reach of beaches, spectacular walks, the Eden Project and other places of interest. All this to make your holiday enjoyable, relaxing, interesting and exciting when you come to this oasis by the river.
