Description

With stunning sea and harbour views this top floor apartment is a popular holiday choice. Situated high up in an impressive Edwardian house, Moonrakers is a generous self-contained property just yards from the harbour's edge.  The sandy beach at Readymoney Cove is a few minutes' walk away and it is a 10 minute stroll into the centre of Fowey to visit the many small, independent shops, cafes, inns and restaurants. It's all about the water in Fowey and visitors can take advantage of the many maritime activities on offer such as kayaking, fishing, boat trips and river cruising. There are also numerous scenic walking and cycling routes in the area. The world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are both less than 30 minutes' drive away.

The real draw for Moonrakers is the spacious sitting room and picture window which looks over the harbour to Polruan and out across the sea. There is one bedroom, a good-sized kitchen and dining table (with an angular view of the harbour) and a bathroom. Guests are welcome to use the sheltered lawn at the rear of the property.

Reviews

Excellent location, stunning views, property was clean on arrival.

Mr David C,

Excellent property in a stunning location with easy access to the rest of Cornwall. Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable.

Mrs Beverley O,

It's a lovely flat, always a pleasure to go home to. We had a lovely time and Tom at the Fowey office is extremely helpful and went the extra mile to help us.

Mrs Jane M,

We would strongly recommend spacious Moonraker to any couple who value a fantastic view, total peace and quiet, a central location with a parking space, good back up form the local office and the beauty of Fowey. We had a brilliant week walking, reading, eating out, visiting the Eden Project and just totally relaxing. And an awful lot of time looking at the view!

Mrs Jane B,

Perfect view over to Polruan make the Apartment and excellent choice. We would like to thank the young man who came out to our apartment from Cornish Horizons twice when our key would not lock the door on the inside, he sorted another key for us within a couple of hours of the phone call, much appreciated.

Mrs Wendy R,

Wonderful location in reach of all amenities. Service was efficient professional and friendly.

Mrs June L,

The best location and perfect apartment for the best holiday!

L F,

The Quay Bakery in Fowey was the best we have found. I usually make all my own bread and it was marvelous not to have to resort to eating quickly made shop bread on holiday. If you walk to Polperro there is an amazing locally run bus service to bring you back.

Mrs Patricia C,

Map

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.
