Property Details

An eighteenth century townhouse in the heart of Fowey, this contemporary three storey property with bright, stylish decor, places you yards from the historic Town Quay and overlooks the main shopping and eating areas. You have plenty of choices when it comes to shopping, drinking and eating within a 100 metres radius alone. There are many lovely beaches in this part of Cornwall; in under a mile, you can reach Readymoney Cove, a particularly sheltered sandy beach with a shop and cafe, linking up to the South West Coast Path and visit St Catherine’s Castle, a 16th-century ruin on the edge of the peninsula. Visit the marine life at Fowey Aquarium, discover some of the town’s heritage at Whitehouse Quay and shop for local artworks at Three Fishes Pottery and Fowey River Gallery. Fowey is a town best explored on foot, although it’s well worth travelling further afield to visit attractions like the Lost Gardens of Heligan (14 miles) and Wheal Martyn Clay Works (10 miles).
There is a twice daily ferry which runs between Mevagissey and Fowey – great for exploring.
The centre of town is home to the Daphne du Maurier Literary Centre, chock full of books and displays dedicated to du Maurier’s works – a quiet sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of Fowey’s busy cafes, pubs and restaurants. Make time to pop into Fowey Museum – small but perfectly formed in just one room, the focus is on Fowey’s history and there is an entire exhibition dedicated to Daphne du Maurier.

The entrance hall with stairs leading to the living accommodation has a freezer and space for coats and boots. On the first floor, the lounge has a comfortable corner sofa, a tongue and groove wooden feature wall and ceiling, and Smart TV. This opens onto the kitchen, where a breakfast bar with two adjustable stools and a wooden dining table with chairs and bench seating provide flexible options for mealtimes. Take the stairs up a level, where a double bedroom with an en-suite walk-in thermostatic shower room and the family bathroom (with both a shower over the bath and shower cubicle) is found. The remaining two bedrooms — a double with a TV, sitting area and tea and coffee making facilities, and a twin bedroom, are located on the top floor.
While the cottage has no private outside space, the quayside is just 40 metres away with lovely places to sit out and watch the passing boats.
Please be aware that the property is not suitable for less able guests or young children as the stairs are steep.
Quayside is happy to accept one dog with an additional charge of 25.00.
