Cosy cottage for couples to families, private south facing balcony with bbq, panoramic views over Fowey estuary, Private boat, 30mins from Eden project, beautiful walks and beaches on the door step.

The space

Stunning views over the river Fowey.
Amazing balcony, a real sun trap.
Can be a cosy retreat for two or easily accommodate 8. Located only a stone throw from the quay which has two superb pubs and a great beach.

The house is split over 3 floors;

1st floor comprises of an open plan kitchen & dining area leading through to the lounge. On the opposite side of the house this leads to a utility area with washer and dryer, then moving onward to two bunk beds and the downstairs shower and bathroom.

2nd floor is the family room with a sofa bed and a superb view across the estuary, leading off this room is a set of double doors outside to the balcony and bbq. Also on this floor is a further bunk room and another bathroom.

3rd floor is the master bedroom with ensuite shower, again with a superb aspect over the estuary.

Access to the house is off East street up a flight of stairs and along the front of the property on a shared footpath. This is the ideal spot to unload luggage.

There are two car parks in the village, one as you enter the village on the left hand side and St. Saviours car park further down towards the house sign posted on the left. Or alternatively there can be spaces found on the quay. All are chargeable. We recommend driving down Fore street then reversing up east street to unload, then parking is easiest at St Saviours.

Ross has a beautiful property with lots of room. It is just up from the harbour's edge and has great views. The village is very small so you need to book early evening if you want a restaurant meal. We had a great night here.

We loved the river view from the terrace, so beautiful and relaxing :-) Great location too - such easy access to coastal walk and so close to the foot ferry over to Fowey. Ross was also super helpful on arrival with directions and went the extra mile. Thank you for a great stay!

This cottage was a brilliant little find at very short notice. Much larger than expected and with plenty of room to sleep 7 of us quite comfortably. There isn't much info available on how the rooms are set up so best to double check as there are two doubles, and two bunk bed rooms. The views were stunning and the little patio/terrace area is great - shame it rained while we were there. One thing is, the car park is miles away from us per se, except the rain!! (As we had our hair done ready for a wedding) Just feel people should be aware especially if they have problems getting about.

Ross's place was extremely clean and check in and out was simple. However, the place does get quite chilly with mainly storage heaters being the only providers of heat. As for the location, unfortunately the car can only be unloaded down a very tight street below a lot of steps up to the house. We were aware of the steps so such was not a problem, however getting the car back out of the small street would have been difficult had we not had a small car! The car park was also up a really large hill, which although not a problem for us may be to others. The drive to Polruan involves a 20 minute meander down some very tiny Cornish county lanes which although beautiful may be tricky for some drivers and I feel it's worth a mention!!! The village itself is beautiful, however the only shop closes very early and if you do not have a table reserved at the Lugger Inn then you might go hungry! Overall though, Ross's place is well equipped and very well maintained and clean and served our purpose. Thanks!
