Ferrymans Cottage - formerly part of the infamous Sailor's Return Inn - is just 4 minutes walk along the Riverside from the centre of the bustling up-beat town. Not only with water views but two decks actually above the water, perched above the old slipway. There, great fun for kids (and adults!) to crab and fish, Over the river, a magnificent view of Ferryside, Daphne du Maurier's first house in Fowey; The Boddinick ferry plies to and from nearby Caffa Mill, there a car park where a weekly parking ticket can be bought..

Not only with water views but two decks actually above the water, perched above the old slipway. There, great fun for kids (and adults!) to crab and fish, Over the river, a magnificent view of Ferryside, Daphne du Maurier's first house in Fowey; The Boddinick ferry plies to and from nearby Caffa Mill, there a car park where a weekly parking ticket can be bought.. Being also a family house for the owners, we find guests surprised at the extent of facilities, crockery; 'you name it! It's a family house. At entrance level, a Study, Shower room with WC and Lounge with TV and log effect fire opens to a deck. Down the stairs, leads to the Kitchen with (tall cooks beware) beamed ceiling and full faciitites. The Dining room, with log effect stove, opens to another deck with BBQ, table and chairs and, if the tide isn't lapping on the deck, a ladder to the beach. There's a 'frape' mooring for small boats which are moored off-shore but can be pulled to the deck, fees arranged with the Harbour Master. Rising from the entrance level, stairs takes us to the main Bathroom and two double Bedrooms, one with bay window overlooking the constantly changing river scene. Further stairs take us to two more Bedrooms, one a double with river view, the other a single bed plus a full length bunk bed pair. All bedrooms have central heating, wash basins; linen and towels are provided. Guests like it because it's 'querky'. We have, in renovations, kept the old charm of Cornwall, thick slate walls and re-used ships timbers as it was in times of the Sailor's Return. More

Plenty of plus points for this property. Very close to public car park;parking can be an issue in Fowey. It's a short detour from the south west coastal path so one can walk in and out. Plenty of hot water, 2 showers plus sinks in...More

As owner, Tony McDnnell, I was touched by the exceptional review. A thoughtful analysis of the realities, perhaps not always noticed in residence there. Qualities we aim for rather than profit, encouraging returns with discount; encouraging back those who like it, those we like too!

About the neighbourhood
Fowey Near the waterfront, antique shops, restaurants, chandlers and historic pubs jostle for space. There are architectural gems in the tiny streets that twist and tumble down the hillside towards the estuary: St Fimbarrus Church, founded in the 6th century, and Place, after 660 years still the seat of the Treffry family. But it is in Fowey's extended family - the community of little towns and villages linked to it by the river - that is fascination lies. These include Lostwithiel and nearby Restormel Castle, Lerryn, Golant, Bodinnick, Pont at the head of its wooded 'pill' and Polruan.
How to get there
Now, just where are you starting from? If you're a 'foreigner '(not a true Cornishman) aim for Bodmin which is 6 miles to the North. Once near, from the Bodmin direction follow the signs to the inner town, which takes you through the main streets on a one way (counterclockwise) system. Almost leaving the town,the old slipway opens up on the right. Pull in and take stock; Ferrymans is some 50 metres ahead on the right. With red door and even Cornish cream wall decor (!). Temporary stopping for loading and loading, pick-ups can be at the old slipway or, mounting the pavement with care, immediately outside FerrymansCottage After, parking is a further 100 metres further ahead on the right.
