This beautiful home– located on the River Fowey – is a charmingly renovated fisherman’s cottage that originally dates back to 1620. You will be able to enjoy stunning views from every room in this home. However, the waterfront patio here is truly the home’s crowning glory. Enjoy leisurely breakfasts at the picnic table overlooking the harbour and watch the boats pass by or look out across the water to the greenery of the National Trust woodlands. After exploring the multi-coloured homes perched on the hillsides of Fowey, leading down to the sea, head home for an evening perched in the living room’s window seat overlooking the river. Or, why not enjoy an alfresco nightcap on the patio to admire the last of the watery vistas before night descends?
