This is a great property, perfect for holidays in the lovely small town of Fowey. The garage and driveway is an absolute godsend as parking in the town is pretty tricky. The views from the various balconies are stunning, and you can easily pass a...More

About the neighbourhood
The property is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in an elevated position enjoying outstanding estuary views of the beautiful River Fowey. The town of Fowey (as featured on Three men in another boat & Channel 4's Relocation Relocation Relocation;) has a unique unspoilt and ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages. The medieval and tudor cottages, narrow winding streets with glimpses of the river below, busy with yachts and boats, cobbled walkways perfumed with flowers from hanging baskets and window boxes and the quay bustling with life all help to create a unique atmosphere.Privately owned 'Place' a part 15th century fortified manor house, viewed from the balcony of Helen House, dominates the town.

How to get there
Fowey is a beautifully secluded Historical Cornish town situated on the coast that is surprisingly easy to get to. Newquay airport is only 30Km away and has many domestic flight connections (Gatwick, Stanstead, Manchester to name a few), a little further away is Exeter airport (130Km) where you can find many more domestic and international flight connections at very reasonable prices. Travelling to Fowey by road couldn't be simpler, just take the A30 and follow the signs for St Austell (A391), then take the A3082 to Fowey. Our own detailed instructions will then guide you those final kilometres to the beautiful town of Fowey.
