The town of Fowey is beautiful, and a great base for exploring the nearby attractions, with beaches, coastal walks and the Eden Project all within easy reach. I stayed at Retreat to Fowey with my wife and our two young boys (aged 2 and 5) and it was perfect for us. The apartment is well equipped with high-end appliances in the kitchen and the boys loved playing with all the toys and games. There was also a treasure trove of beach equipment free to use - children's wetsuits, body boards, wind breakers, buckets, spades, nets - all greatly appreciated. The views from the balconies look out over the harbour, and the walk into town is short, though the whole town is very hilly so be prepared! One of the main reasons we booked was the access to the indoor pool at Fowey Hall as we're well aware of how unpredictable the weather can be. Fortunately we only had one rainy day, and this was a good fall back option. I'm sure we'll return to Cornwall in the future and we would definitely look up Retreat to Fowey again.
We stayed in Apartment 2 (2 beds) for a week in July 2017 with our 8 year old son. The apartment is well positioned for all the amenities of the town of Fowey and the local beach with a convenient parking space (gold dust in the summer) and a stunning view. The apartment is comfortably furnished with a well equipped kitchen including washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc. The pass to use the pool at Fowey Hall Hotel (a few minutes walk) was fantastic for us as the weather wasn't great. We had many enjoyable meals in the town following Fiona's recommendations and some outings too (Eden, Heligan and footgolf). Steep walk back up from the town but worth it for the view. Thoroughly recommend - we will be back!
Fowey is a wonderful place, always something to do and see whatever the weather. Friendly locals, great locally caught fish. Lovely sandy beach in walking distance. Apartment 2 has stunning views which are only available to view inside the front of the property. The outdoor seating is fabulous which sadly does not capture the views!
Retreat To Fowey - Apartment 1 is a truly exceptional holiday let with the added bonus of private parking outside your front door. Furnishings, appliances and decor are all of 5* quality. The views over the estuary to Polruan from the living room and master bedroom are breath taking and the most picturesque we have ever experienced from our holiday accommodations. Apartment 1 and Fowey made for a truly memorable and wonderful holiday - a little piece of heaven :)
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The welcome hamper was a lovely addition, and the apartment had all the necessary facilities for a great week's visit to Fowey. Futhermore, despite not properly showing it in the preview images the view from the apartment was spectacular.
We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The views over the estuary are spectacular. The apartment is extremely well equipped, especially the kitchen, laundry room and more items and toys for children then we could use. There was even kids wetsuits, crabbing equipment and beach toys. It is a short (albeit steep) walk down into town or to Moneyready Cove (small beach). Easy provided parking. Accommodation for families of this high standard is hard to find. Communication with owner was prompt and friendly. Welcome hamper set us up with essentials on arrival. We had a very comfortable stay in this lovely apartment.
Great apartment, well equipped especially for babies/children. Fantastic views of the estuary and sea. Lovely welcome hamper. Highly recommend a stay here.
