We wanted to go away with family for a birthday weekend. We arrived at the Bishops House boutique guest house and it didn't disappoint. Finished to the highest standards and amazing views of Fowey. Elizabeth the owner welcomed us with an afternoon tea on the veranda, which was a lovely touch and the view across the estuary was beautiful, it also helped that it was a sunny weekend.
The rooms were lovely and large and our room had an amazing roll top bath which was situated so you could bathe and look out of the window. The little touches of baked cakes and tea in the room were lovely.
Free Wi fi available which is so important. No decent mobile phone reception in Fowey unless you walk up the hill. Drop your bags off before parking your car and get someone else to pick up the car when leaving. Very steep hill. Seagulls can be a bit noisy but your by the coast. Sams bar great place to eat, The Ship and King of Prussia good pubs.
Breakfast was lovely we only wish there were newspapers provided especially for the cost of the accommodation but this is only a small quibble and there's a newsagent across the way. We would highly recommend. Thanks
