About Chris Edleston

I live in the the main house adjoining the apartment, with my wife Carol. The house was originally built in the 1920s by my great grandfather and when you see the house it is not difficult to see why the house has never left the family!

We moved back to the house following the death of my father, 5 years ago. We absolutely love living in Fowey, it truly is a wonderful place. The renovation of the house and apartment has been a labour of love.

We spend our time boating and walking and enjoying community life in Fowey. We have a good knowledge of the area which we would be happy to share with you. We are keen to ensure that our guests grow to love Fowey life as we have done over the years.

Chris Edleston purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Chris Edleston chose Fowey

We were living on the North Yorks Moors on a small farm when we had the opportunity to buy the remainder of the house. My wife and I were stood looking at the view over Readymoney and the sea and we knew that there was no way in which we could let our family heirloom go. We left our life in Yorkshire and have never had a moment of regret.

Looking from the house you can see the Fowey River estuary, the sea, Readymoney beach and the light reflecting on Covington Woods - it is glorious. We launch our kayak from the beach, stroll along the stunning cliff tops, have barbeques on the beach and sail around the creeks and inlets which are so picturesque.

Fowey is a very sociable place and we have many friends. The local church is very active and welcoming.

What makes this apartment unique

Whether you like isolation or socialising, nothing is far from our home. We can easily leave our car parked all week and have a great time in and around Fowey.

The apartment 'Beach View' could also be called sea view, wood view or even estuary view - the choice is yours!

Most properties in the traditional town of Fowey have many steps and challenging access. With onsite parking and few steps our apartment is perfect for those with limited mobility.

Living in a prime residential area we do not have the noise associated with close proximity to pubs and restaurants. We can hear the sounds of laughter from the beach, and the waves on the shore as we drift off to sleep - it is a lovely place to be!

Quality experience in a cute village.

  • 4 of 5

Amenities, location, friendliness and a welcoming attitude made for a relaxed stay of four days. Car parking a big plus and an easy 10 minute walk to the village centre was a positive. Apartment facilities were ideal, including the heating required during my part snowy stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We enjoyed meeting you. We were sorry about the snow; it is unusual down here. It certainly doesn’t help when you are on holiday!

Wonderful view , great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 5 day break in this lovely apartment with a wonderful view over the mouth of the river Fowey from the balcony.

The apartment has everything you need for a short break or a week or 2.

It is in a great location , the centre of Fowey is within reasonably easy walking distance.

A perfect base for exploring this lovely part of Cornwall.

The owners are very friendly and welcoming and on hand should you need anything.

Recommend this apartment 100% .
