The colourful town of Fowey is often named one of the most beautiful places in England, and this sleek penthouse is right in the thick of it. You’re no more than a ten-minute walk from seafood eateries, traditional pubs and the pretty harbour with bobbing fishing boats. Plus, the sandy Readymoney Cove is only a twenty-minute stroll away. Drop your bags, grab the cricket set and beach tent provided by your host, and while away the hours on the seashore. When you’re salty-haired and worn out, your bright home welcomes you with open arms. Sink into the sofa with a tipple from the gin cabinet or pop open a bottle of fizz on the private balcony. Dollop cream and jam on scones at the cosy breakfast bar, before admiring the walls adorned with prints by local artist Becky Bettesworth. And when it’s time to retreat to the land of nod, luxurious bedrooms await.

About Fowey

Local legend tells that Jesus visited Fowey in his childhood, and you can follow in his footsteps by visiting the commemorative Punches Cross.
