We booked this B&B on the views of previous TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. We had booked for 3 nights in the run up to Bank Holiday. Parking was easy on the road outside. The premises are accessed from the rear garden gate, and so locating the house was fairly difficult but there was adequate parking on the road. The garden is very well maintained and is a place of solitude. Gill welcomed us as we walked down the garden path, then showed us to our room. The room overlooked the Town Quay and had lovely views of the river. Facilities in the room were better than most hotels we have stayed in around the world. There was even filtered water alongside the ample stocks of tea, coffee, etc.
Breakfast was a really pleasant affair. Plenty of toast, Juices and cereals were all laid out, and I had the grapefruit segments, while my wife ordered porridge. She declared that the porridge came up to standard and was one of the best she had tasted. I had the full breakfast and really enjoyed it. Plenty of preserves on the tables, too.
Gill is a really friendly person, and is very helpful in all respects to make your stay in Fowey delightful. We discovered she and I had a lot of friends in common at Fowey, and so the conversations got longer at breakfast each day! . The bedroom is very comfortable and we could sleep with the French windows open to hear the gentle sounds of the river and town below us.
The only problem with Fowey, is that it is built on the steep-sided hill of the estuary. Going into town is fine, but the walk back up is VERY steep, and it is quite easy to get lost in all the little alleys and paths.
The house is positioned so that it is easy to get back on the main road, and is within 10 minutes of the Eden project. We found River View to be a very suitable centre to explore Cornwall, making it to Land's End in about 70 minutes.
We would just like to end by thanking Gill for her tremendous hospitality, and we will certainly look to coming back next year.
