Harbour View House 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.
Harbour View House 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. Outside there is a small walled garden and decked area.

A really lovely location, only a short skip to the centre of Fowey and the quay. Cosy and comfortable. Parking and unloading luggage is obviously an issue, but this is inevitable in Fowey (and during winter months free parking can be found only a ten minute walk away).
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.
