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

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.
