Description

It really isn't possible to get closer to the water than Chandlers, a comfortable apartment where you can actually fish from the balcony at high tide if you wish. The fantastic uninterrupted views of the ever changing river can be enjoyed from the lounge/kitchen/diner and bedroom. On a warm day you can open the balcony door and enjoy all the boats and ships passing by within 200 yards. There is also a great view of 'Ferryside' the one time home of author Daphne du Maurier across the water at Bodinnick. This is du Maurier country and the acclaimed Fowey festival attracts many to its talks, walks, plays and poetry. The centre of Fowey with its many independent shops, cafes, inns and restaurants is within a few hundred yards walk.

Reviews

Great location and good standard of property.

Mrs Beverley H,

Amazing place - we want to move there.

Mrs Kellie F,

Sorry can’t remember his name but the young man in the Fowey office was so helpful and friendly. Fowey was a lovely little town, thoroughly recommend the Town walk on Tuesday morning. The property was in the perfect spot, watching the boats on the estuary was a bit of a time waster but we were on holiday! We’ll be back.

Mr Chris B,

Chandlers in the Fowey Estuary was a unique experience which we would like to repeat, wow, what a location!

Mrs Shirley E,

Have been going to Chandlers for many years as I love the unspoilt charm of Fowey and the views of the estuary from the property. I use the train and as Par station is on the main GWR route it is fairly easy to get around this part of Cornwall. I had contact in the Fowey office with Tom during this stay and found him to be most charming and helpful - he even made me a lovely cup of tea on arrival!

Mrs J C,

We love Chandlers the property is perfect to see activity on the river sitting on the balcony, my husband also likes to sit there and paint. It’s just a short walk to lovely restaurants, pubs and shops and a bit further to Readymoney cove to sit and to look out to sea you never tire of the views. Fowey is a great place to go and relax and that is why we return .

Previous Customer,

Delightfully situated property with interesting views over the busy harbour and an easy walk to the town centre and car park.

Mr Richard M,

If you haven't yet discovered Fowey, you've got a treat in store.  Full of multicoloured cottages, perched on the hillsides leading down to the sea, this little fishing town has lots to tempt visitors. 

There is an entrancing collection of unique local shops and boutiques, along with harbourside cafes, pubs which will give you a hearty welcome and a good atmosphere, and restaurants offering tempting local produce.  If you want a unique insight into the local species in these waters, you could visit Fowey Aquarium, whose residents include specimens brought in by local fishermen.

If you're a fan of Daphne du Maurier, you may want to visit the Literary Centre, which gives information and exhibits about the author and her life and work.  There is also the Fowey Festival of Words and Music, held in May, in which du Maurier, and many other authors, artists and musicians, are celebrated.  Another great spectacle is the Fowey Royal Regatta, held in August.

Fowey lies within one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall, and the backdrop of the surrounding countryside, with its tidal creeks, rolling fields and rugged cliffs, will make you want to return here again and again.
