About the property

Water Fronting Character Cottage in Fowey, Cornwall, England - A few minutes walk from Fowey Town centre, truly 'At Waters Edge'

'At Waters Edge' is in an exceptionally beautiful position, built right on the banks of the Fowey River, with the Du Maurier family home, 'Ferryside', on the opposite side of the river. Every room has stunning river views and the private terrace is the perfect place to sit back and enjoy watching life on the river or perhaps try catching a fish for your supper! You will never tire of the constantly changing view of large and small boats and abundant wildlife. Fowey Town is just a few minutes, mainly level, walk away. Many of our guests return year after year. Perfect for an Autumn or Winter break. There is no parking at the property but you have a choice of two car parks within 5 mins level walk. Bookings are from Saturday to Saturday.

Notes on accommodation: This delightful former sea captain’s house is right on the Fowey River so you really will be - At Water’s Edge. Built on this idyllic spot, nearly 200 years ago has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The views of the river, Bodinnick and surrounding countryside are truly superb. It won’t take you long to feel at home in this comfortably furnished cottage and you can sit back, with a first class view of the river and relax. Watch the sail boats and the kayaks, the rowers practice, the ferryboats and fishermen. The river is bursting with wildlife - cormorants, swans, and ducks – and more recently a dolphin has been spotted! The car park is just 5 minutes walk and from there the car ferry crosses to Bodinnick and the start of the famous Hall Walk with its amazing views of Fowey. A few minutes walk through narrow streets and you are in Fowey town with shops, restaurants and bustling quay. Outside: Delightful brick paved waterside terrace with built in slate seat and balcony over the water. The high walls on either side give privacy and the morning sun makes this a truly delightful outside space. Table and four chairs and small cast iron BBQ. The perfect place to sit with your drink, perhaps enjoy a barbecue, or simply sit in the sun and enjoy the lovely views. Full gas central heating and electricity included in price.

Superb location and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

The cottage in Fowey is in a great location, overlooking the Fowey estuary and within walking distance of the lovely ReadyMoney Beach (which I recommend). The cottage is well equipped and finished to a high standard - there wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already on hand. Great communication by Suzette also.

Overall we were very pleased with our choice, and recommend this property.

The position perfect. Bathrooms good. Kitchen/dining area damp and cold until asked for heater

  • 4 of 5

Living room is pleasant and the view is great. Kitchen could do with more equipment. Do not list the barbeque as usable - it is cast iron, has been allowed to rust, and isn't.

When the Fowey River is at low tide the beach is just below your balcony! There is a lovely family beach at Readymoney Cove the other side of the town and many beautiful Cornish beaches a short drive away. For Du Maurier fans the Menabilly beach is only a short drive away - made famous in Daphne Du Maurier's Rebecca.


For rail links the stations are Par, 3 miles or St Austell, 7 miles. Nearest airport is Newquay, 20 miles. When arriving by car, you will need to drive through Fowey town to get to Passage Street. The roads are very narrow but you can pull up right outside of the property to offload. Caffa Mill car park 2 minutes walk away - tickets can be purchased with cash, credit card or there is 24/7 phone booking system. A few minutes further along the road is the Old Station Car Park.


Eden Project just 6 miles away or The Lost Gardens of Heligan (15 miles), Lanhydrock House (7 miles).

Further Details:

Fowey has a good range of shops and wonderful restaurants. You will find local shops along side more famous names. There is a good Post Office and banks. Good choice of restaurants - we love Sam's - great music and pop memorabilia for sale. Several good pubs - The Galleon is a favourite for pub food. Have a look at the Fowey website for lots of information.
