This pretty cottage is situated in the heart of Fowey with the local shops and restaurants a short stroll away. The harbourside, 50 yds along the street, is a lovely spot to sit and watch the continual activity on the water. You will see many visiting yachts, small craft, sometimes a cruise ship and the occasional military vessel passing by. Fowey is positioned on the South West Coast Path as well as the Saint’s Way so is an ideal location for both keen and amateur walkers. The town is a haven for water-sports and the sandy beach at Readymoney Cove lies in a sheltered spot overlooking Polruan at the mouth of the Fowey Estuary with the remains of the 16th century St Catherine’s Castle standing on the headland above.
The cottage is well-laid out with a spacious, open-plan ground floor living room and two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. There’s an appealing courtyard at the rear which catches the sun through the day and a great place to sit out and read a book. 45 North Street is perfect for either a small group or a couple and offers flexible bookings throughout the year so you can stay for 3 days or more at any time.

Location of the property was excellent, best part of a Cornish holiday is the pubs and the real ale they sell!
We really liked the cottage. Great location and well presented, would highly recommend!
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.
