Samsenet was built by the Sixton's as their family home when they lived in Fowey. Having built our home for our family in Fowey we know what a special place this town is. Our 3 grown up kids grew up on the beach, pier jumping, sailing, windsurfing and playing Sport in a safe, idyllic place. Now with our children in their late teens we thought it would be lovely to give people the opportunity to enjoy our home and everything that Fowey and the surrounding area brings to make that perfect holiday ....
Emma Sixton purchased this House in 2004
Why Emma Sixton chose Fowey
We built this house in 2004 after having the perfect opportunity of buying some land. It was a perfect place to bring our family up, with exceptional schools, beautiful beaches and only a stroll to our restaurants for work. The children learnt to Sail, windsurf and spent most evenings on the beach pier jumping and fishing. What isn't perfect about that for an upbringing! Still need convincing about what a beautiful place Samsenet in Fowey is ?

This is an excellent house for a family or two in the lovely town of Fowey. We really enjoyed our stay and it was a great base to explore the rest of Cornwall. Thanks for having us!
Great space but needs TLC
This property was spacious and airy but it is clear the owners are selling it and no longer have any great interest in the standard they provide as several things such as extractor fans, light bulbs etc were not working, the oven was cracked and when brought to the owners attention were clearly not considered important and were not fixed during our stay. The house sleeps 12 but seating outside is for 6. There is a bbq but no bbq tools provided - all little things but not what we expected from a property which cost so much. We have stayed in cheaper accommodation in Fowey which was of a much higher standard.
A word of warning to those with active toddlers - there are many stairs which cannot be gated off as well as steep drops in the garden. Wheelchair users would not be able to access the property as there are several steps to both entrances.
A real shame as we were looking forward to a “perfect” holiday and the reality was disappointing.
We still had a great holiday - who could fail to in beautiful Cornwall, but sadly would not recommend this house to other travellers.
This house is simply stunning!! We were a group of 11 people ranging from 2yrs - 72yrs, and it catered for everyone. The decor and size of the property cannot be fully appreciated until you are inside the house, however the pictures do give you an accurate idea of what to expect.
The living areas are spacious and cosy, more homely than what you’d expect from a rental property. The kitchen is fantastic and was our ‘meeting point’ in the evenings. It’s fully equipped, even down to the dishwasher tablets!! The bedrooms are beautiful and all have lovely comfy beds.....made even better when you’re staying in the master bedroom with roof terrace and amazing views of Fowey.
The location is ideal for exploring the local areas, (there’s even a little bus that takes you back and forth into Fowey if you can’t manage the hills).
I really can’t recommend this house highly enough, it’s so spacious you never feel like you’re on top of each other.
Thank you so much Emma for all your help with the questions I had and for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful home. Kirsty x
Lovely house and convenient for many local attractions and beaches
Super house for three generations and in spite of the weather local attractions and beaches were all conveniently nearby.
It was always a pleasure to return to the house at the end of the day to the comfort and tastefully splendid interior design along with an excellent kitchen, dining room and sitting room. All bathrooms, bedrooms and showers were of the highest standard and cleanliness.
The views and balcony (sadly not used because of weather) added luxury to the top floor along with the very useful second sitting room.
In summary an excellent house and location for a Cornish holiday break.
Great place for our family with plenty of room
well equiped would stay again
