Stunning open-plan apartment with spectacular waterfront views

With wonderful views over the estuary, and a mere ten-minute walk to the waterfront and Readymoney Cove*, this bright, open-plan living space with large bay windows, comfortably sleeps six, so is perfect for a family or household group who want the ‘wow’ factor for their Cornish break.

The light and airy, high-ceiling yet cosy lounge has comfy sofas, a fabulous telescope for night skies awash with stars, and a feature wood burning fire, plus a Smart TV for quiet nights in.

With nautical décor befitting its coastal position, the lounge leads on to a stylish high-specification kitchen, beautifully equipped with an Aga range cooker, plenty of cupboard space and a large refrigerator, to suit any family’s culinary needs.  The table seats six for those special family meals together.

A glass-fronted balcony to the front of the accommodation, offering a 180-degree view of the water across to Polruan, has seating for two, providing a romantic setting for an evening glass of fizz.  Its elevated position means the views are spectacular, but it also has off-road parking which can be hard to come by in this popular town.

Sleeping arrangements include a spacious king-sized bedroom with beautiful brass bed, a twin room and a bunk room. Premium woollen mattresses guarantee a good night’s sleep, while the Master bedroom has its own ensuite.  There is also a family bathroom with a freestanding bath and walk-in shower, plus underfloor heating.

Outside to the rear is a shared balcony area with a table and Big Green Egg clay oven for outdoor cooking.  A beach hut completes the scene, containing a collection of holiday leisure essentials, such as body boards and wetsuits.

Narrow-streets and plenty of charm sum up fabulous Fowey. Its nautical history lends it to picture-postcard views, and streets lined with quaint pubs and restaurants. It is also home to the Polruan Ferry, which takes you just across the estuary for waterside views of Fowey and walks up the headland.

Fowey was the home of writer, Daphne du Maurier, so it has attracted her fans for many years. Her world of wreckers and creeks captured the literary imagination, drawing many to this splendid town on the south coast of Cornwall. The Menabilly Estate features as Manderley in Rebecca. There is now an annual arts and literature event, Fowey Festival, which takes place in May, featuring established and emerging writers.

Check out the Fowey Museum at the waterfront, and perhaps enjoy a cream tea at the splendid Fowey Hotel. Fimbarrus Church sits in Fowey. It features in du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel, where Philip is worshipping while Rachel is having a secret assignation – yes, it all happens in her novels so you may want to read one while you’re here. In the church, seek out the beautifully-carved font with its decorative honeysuckle leaf pattern.

In days of yore, Fowey, a pilchard exporting town, was prey to pirates; it was also occupied by Parliamentarian troops during the Civil War. It is hard to imagine its turbulent history when you visit today, so make the most of its modern amenities. Perhaps a river trip? Or a visit to the aquarium comprising native and local species such as crabs and lobsters. For something a little different, maybe try the Bird Lady of Fowey with her collection of owls and hawks. Meanwhile, art connoisseurs might enjoy a visit to the unique River Gallery.

For food, you have many options but Appleton’s Bar and Restaurant comes highly recommended by locals for rustic Italian food with a contemporary twist: brunch, lunch and dinner options are all available.
