Tucked down a quiet side street behind the local parish church, this picture-perfect Victorian cottage makes for a relaxing escape. Set in the heart of Fowey – one of the prettiest waterfront towns in Cornwall – it blends a fresh nautical feel with vintage charm. Slow down to the Cornish pace of life with boat watching on the estuary, sundowners in the courtyard garden and cosy nights in the beamed lounge. Hop on the ferry to the neighbouring fishing village of Polruan, rent a kayak to explore the estuary at your own pace and discover pristine coves of shimmering sand on the South West Coast Path. If you fancy a day trip, the fabulous Eden Project is only seven miles away. The gentle chime of the church bells over your Sunday morning coffee will just add to the feeling that you’ve stepped into another time.
