About Fowey Cottage, South Cornwall (Sleeps 8)
Fowey Cottage, also known as Clovertown, is a beautiful whitewashed cottage peacefully surrounded on both banks by lush woodland with Lerryn creek meandering gently to the coast where it joins the sea approx five files away at the charming town of Fowey, South Cornwall. Surrounded by stunning gardens and views of the picturesque Lerryn creek, Fowey Cottage is an idyllic holiday home in which to relax and unwind in the Cornish sunshine. The cottage sleeps up to eight guests across four lovely bedrooms, and with two bathrooms, it is perfect for a luxury family holiday in south Cornwall.
Fowey Cottage is well positioned to explore the many quaint nearby villages. Enjoy a stroll along the water’s edge before relaxing over a leisurely lunch in the local pub. The pretty village of Lostwithiel sits at the northern end of the estuary, and oozes charm, with its 14th-century bridge over the river and streets filled with antique and arts and crafts shops. Nearby Restormel Castle, a perfectly circular moat and bailey Norman castle, offers superb views across the river valley and is a lovely spot for a picnic. To the south, the pretty fishing village of Polruan sits on the South West Coastal Path and has a regular passenger ferry service across the estuary to Fowey,
Inside Fowey Cottage you will find the ambience relaxing, light and airy and very spacious. At its heart of the property is a large, living/dining area, perfect for entertaining and socialising. The superb kitchen, with its whitewashed exposed beams, combines character with contemporary style, and is well-equipped for creating some memorable meals. Guests can enjoy a relaxed meal at the picnic-style dining table before retiring to the conservatory to admire the attractive garden. At the other end of the kitchen, a comfy leather armchair and sofa sit invitingly around a wood burner where younger guests can perhaps enjoy having their own space in which to watch TV. From here a door leads through to the elegant lounge, a wonderfully airy space enhanced by the attractive patio doors which allow light to flood in. With two large, comfortable sofas and the tasteful additions of the antique rocking chair and grandfather clock, this is a beautiful room in which to relax with a book or enjoy some conversation, and the inclusion of the upright piano may appeal to musically-inclined guests.
Heading upstairs, guests will discover the four beautiful bedrooms. The master bedroom is wonderfully spacious and light, with dual aspect windows overlooking the garden, and is tastefully decorated in soft, neutral tones to ensure a blissful night’s sleep. The second double room is welcoming and comfortable, and its pretty floral curtains beautifully frame the twin windows. The two twin rooms are crisp and fresh, with whitewashed walls and splashes of blue to reflect the coastal location. Also on this floor are the two immaculate bathrooms, one with a shower over bath and WC, the other with a large shower and WC.
The garden outside is simply stunning – a large, traditional cottage garden with an expanse of lawn, edged by attractive flower-filled borders. The charming patio has garden seating where guests to enjoy a drink in the sunshine with a view of the River Lerryn sparkling in the distance. Framed by mature trees, it offers a private oasis of calm. Fowey Cottage is a wonderfully idyllic place in which to unwind. Secluded and tranquil, it is ideal for a family seeking a peaceful spot yet within easy access of the beaches and attractions of South Cornwall.
