Pretty Family Retreat, near Fowey (CHVIEWCO)

The Property is an attractive and spacious four-bedroom property with impressive harbour views. A lovely base for a holiday, the house is located near the centre of Fowey and within a few minutes' walk of the town. Pick up some delicious fresh fare from one of the many small independent shops, delis and bakeries or eat out at one of the inviting cafes, bistros, inns and restaurants; there's plenty to choose from. As could be expected, fresh fish is a speciality and visitors may even like to catch their own on one of the many fishing trips available. Small boats or kayaks are available to explore the estuary, or you may prefer a scenic river or sea cruise. There is a sandy beach at Readymoney Cove a short distance away or perhaps hop on the passenger ferry which runs across the harbour to the quaint neighbouring fishing village of Polruan every 10-15 minutes daily. From here there are stunning walks in every direction including the popular Hall Walk which follows both banks of the river. The whole area is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Property is well furnished and arranged over three floors. The living rooms are on the ground floor and there is a large open plan sitting/dining room with a bay window giving views of the harbour looking upstream past the church and across the water to Polruan. From the living room a few steps lead to the stylish and well-equipped kitchen and there is a separate utility room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two with harbour views - and a smart family bathroom. On the top floor, the spacious master bedroom has a king size bed, sloping ceilings and an excellent harbour view. There is also an additional shower room.

Perfect for coastal walks along the South of Cornwall, and within easy reach of many idyllic coves including Polkerris, Polridmouth beach and Readymoney Cove. There are larger sandy beaches at Par and Carlyon Bay, and there is a small 16th century fort St Catherine’s’ Castle at the entrance to Fowey harbour. Other local points of interest include the Gribbin head light and two 14th century blockhouses on either side of the estuary opening which were built to protect the village from unwanted ships.

A fantastic range of traditional pubs and bistros are available throughout the town, and a ferry operates crossings from Fowey to both Polruan and Boddinick. The harbour museum and Fowey Maritime Centre offer an insight into the ports history and there are many galleries to choose from. Beside the River Fowey is the 13th century keep of Restormel Castle, where there are fantastic views and a picnic area.

The town is a popular destination for sailing and kayaking, there are plenty of waterside activities available and boat hire which is ideal for a trip up the river. Just two miles from Fowey is Pont, surrounded by picturesque countryside and woodland walks.


Cornwall is the most western part of the South West of England and is a very popular holiday destination with its array of golden sand beaches and dramatic cliff top scenery. The Cornish peninsular is bordered by sea, north, south and west with just one (land based) entrance and exit route over the eastern border to Devon. Traditionally fishing, mining and agriculture were the mainstays of the local economy but tourism has since replaced these. Cornwall boasts thousands of acres of un-spoilt moorland protected as an area of outstanding natural beauty. All year round, the 630 miles of coastal walks (preserved in part by the National Trust and Duchy of Cornwall), are enjoyed by walkers of all ages. Cornwall is known for its mild climate giving rise to the plethora of botanical & specialist gardens like the Eden project, Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. By escaping to Cornwall you can thoroughly immerse yourself in the many contrasts that draw visitors year after year. From the picturesque fishing villages steeped in history to the iconic Eden Project, looking to the future. Survey the changing landscape from moorland to the dramatic & varied Cornish coastline. Sample the freshest gourmet offerings from the abundance of local produce or simply find a quiet spot and unwind with a Cornish clotted cream ice-cream! Wherever you choose to hang up your boots, you will never be far from the sea.

South West

England’s peninsula incorporates the counties of Cornwall and Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Bristol. This region is mostly rural so is perfect to escape the everyday hustle and bustle, whether relaxing with the family by the seaside or exploring the wild moors and rugged coastline. The area boasts hundreds of beautiful sandy bays to choose from and fantastic surfing opportunities. The historic cities of Exeter, Bath and Gloucester are definitely worth a visit, and with transport links all the way down to Penzance even the famous Lands End and remote Isles of Scilly can be reached.
