Description

Experience - The Area...

With wonderful views over the River and countryside beyond, this delightful fisherman's cottage is only a level five minute walk from all the shops and restaurants in the thriving ancient mariner's town of Fowey. The beautiful Cornish port of Fowey offers a good selection of shops and restaurants, all close at hand, and the beach at Readymoney Cove, close to the rivermouth is within easy reach. Pleasure boats leave from Town Quay in the summer, there are lovely creek and coastal walks nearby, including The Hall Walk, and there is also a seasonal passenger ferry to the fishing village of Mevagissey.

Stay - The Accommodation...

Finished to a high standard and with accommodation set on three floors to make the most of the views, Riverside is entered via half a dozen railed steps leading up from the main street to the front door.

To one side is a smartly fitted kitchen with beech effect units and a glazed door leading through to an adjoining dining room with patio doors opening to a wooden railed sun deck overlooking the bustling estuary. There is also a modern bathroom W.C. with wash basin and bath (there is not a shower) accessed from the hallway.

Railed carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor where there are a cloakroom W.C. with hand basin, a kingsize double bedroom with attractive river views through a large picture window and a second bedroom on the landward side with the choice of a 5ft double or 2ft 6in zip-linked twin beds and a decorative old fireplace.

A door from the landing opens to an enclosed staircase which goes directly up to a delightful sitting room on the top floor. Here there are comfortable easy chairs on a laminate floor and magnificent views across the river to the wooded banks at Bodinnick from the dormer windows.

Outside from the sun deck, a flight of narrow timber railed steps lead down to a riverside patio area with a small balcony overhanging the tidal foreshore to enjoy the ever-changing scenery. Occasionally at spring high tide the lower patio can get flooded and due to the proximity of the water, the cottage is not suitable for young children.

A boat shed beneath the property houses the freezer and laundry facilities with space for storage of bikes and beachgear. Parking is in one of the nearby public car parks, the nearest about 50 yards away adjacent to the Bodinnick Ferrywhich provides easy access to the south east villages of Cornwall.
