Stunning apartment, stunning views. Fowey is amazing, river life is wonderful to watch. Great meals at Sam's; Quay House Hotel is good for a special meal but expensive. Pinky Murphy's cider/prosecco cream teas are great. Lanhydrock house worth a visit. Amazing week, we will be back!

Lovely property, beautiful location and stunning views. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the ferry and all the boats going past. Fowey is a beautiful little town with lots to see. We had a lovely dinner in Haveners - best to book. The hamper was a nice touch but we did have to fill the sugar pot. Hope to be back next year.

Our 7th time in Fowey and our 5th time at Barnacles and the place never ceases to amaze us. To sit on the balcony every morning watching the ever changing scenery is a joy. Fabulous coastal walks, with stunning scenery. Barnacles will always have a special place in our hearts - beautiful location and furnishings. Had some lovely meals at The King of Prussia and The Ship. Make use of the crab lines - lots of fun. See you next year Fowey and Barnacles.

We stayed at this fantastic property 18- 25 August 2018 , our 5th time here, which speaks for itself.To sit on the balcony watching the working river on the Fowey Estuary is an absolute delight.The ever changing scenery of the river traffic including the car ferry that works relentlessly is lovely to sit and watch.
The property is furnished to a very high standard and is a perfect setting with the river under your feet ....what more could you want for a truly relaxing holiday in fabulous accommodation.
And Fowey itself is truly a Cornish gem.
We will see you again 2019 Barnacles and Fowey.

We have enjoyed our idyllic week on our honeymoon here! We can't think of anywhere else we would rather have been. We were delighted to make use of the picnic hamper out on the water. We can't wait to come back. Thank you.

Lovely stay again - our second stay. So well decorated and feels so homely. We just love it here. We recommend the Hall Walk, pick a wild garlic flower and use it in a salad. Don't leave without trying a cheesy pasty from Quay Bakery

A lovely, relaxing three days! Very, cosy, spotlessly clean, lovely views of the estuary and the perfect spot to unwind. Would recommend Hall Walk, take in the views, enjoy the woodland primroses, smell the wild garlic. A great way to spend a couple of hours.
R & H, Ledbury
29 March 2018
The Cornish Pasties, the cobble stone footing, the ferry coming back and forth, high hedges, narrow roads, speeding drivers, the ubiquitous white vans, the ebb & flow of tides, the river traffic, the list goes on. If I am not in Fowey, where am I?
B & V, Solihull
9 March 2018
Beautiful apartment, very cosy and great base for exploring. Would recommend the Fowey Hall Walk for incredible views and Haveners restaurant for great food! Also explored the Lost Gardens of Helligan which was great (worth the money) and the Ready Money beach is lovely - only a 10 minute walk from here. Thank you for a greay few days.

Very good design to the apartment and very well apportioned. A lovely location, balcony perfect to watch the world go by. Great food and hospitality everywhere. Mevagissy very well worth it. King of Prussia, Pintxo Tapas and local fish and chips favourite. A wonderful getaway, thank you.

Lovely flat and we have been lucky with the weather this week. Meals on the balcony. Good curry at the Indian restaurant in town. Only disappointment is the TV signal, very frustrating.
S & B, Kent
15 May 2017
Totally restful, just what we wanted; a well appointed flat in a tranquil location. Excellent walking and Helligan is a real eye opener. Bernard Leach and Barbara Hepworth Galleries well worth a visit but Tate St Ives was disappointing.
J & A, Hampshire
15 May 2017
Lovely cottage, beautiful views. Caught crabs from the balcony - great fun. Lanhydrock House and its stunning gardens highly recommended also Lost Gardens of Heligan. Had a lovely meal at the Old Quay Hotel. Fowey Aquarium is very interesting and the road train saves time, footwork and 45 minute boat trip with with Moogie - entertaining and informative. Lovely week, little bit more sun would have been a bonus.
