Place View holiday home details

Fowey is one of the jewels of the south Cornish coast. Many of the most popular attractions of Cornwall are within easy reach, such as the Eden Project or the harbour of Charlestown, yet Fowey is a magical destination in itself, with its labyrinth of narrow, winding streets packed with independent shops and stunning views from every hilltop. Sail boats bobbing in the estuary, and unique events throughout the year like the summer regatta and the Christmas Fair make Fowey a dream place to get away from it all. Place View gives you excellent views of this medieval town and the estuary below from the front terrace, where there’s seating for six.

The cottage may be traditional, but the interior is comfortably contemporary, with Smart TVs, a very well-equipped kitchen and a roll top bath in the bathroom. The bright and soft decorations create a feeling of space in the summer but are equally relaxing in the winter, with an open fire adding to the warmth and comfort.

Whether you’re enjoying a morning coffee in the Garden Room or having a last glass of wine on the terrace looking out on the estuary below, you’ll find yourself soon relaxing into the Cornish pace of life at Place View.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • This whole coastline used to make its living from the fishing industry, and you can still see some of the charming history across the region. Hire a self-drive boat in Fowey ideal for total novices - on the Fowey River, from a half-hour trip to full week. Polperro is a beautiful historic fishing village, with a maze of narrow and winding streets. You can also hire boats here and try your hand at fishing yourself. Another traditional fishing village worth a visit is Mevagissey, which still has a working harbour.
  • If you visit Mevagissey, you’re just a short drive away from the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a fascinating Victorian garden that was rediscovered and restored in the 1990s. One of the people behind the restoration went on to create The Eden Project, an absolutely unique attraction with a bewildering array of plants and trees from all corners of the earth. The architecture is as spectacular as the plant life.
  • Fancy some shopping while you’re here? Truro is a bustling and thriving market town with lots of independent shops and cafés. The cathedral is a masterpiece of Victorian architecture, and the art museum has lots of fun activities for the little ones too.
  • If the art museum doesn’t tire them out, take the children to Camel Creek Adventure Park, where they can go on a fairground ride or meet and groom animals, including meerkats, reptiles and ponies.
  • Restormel Castle is a fascinating 13th century ruin, where you can still pick out the main rooms of the castle and enjoy the views of the River Fowey below. It’s a good spot for a picnic – keep your eyes peeled for the famous black pheasants that live here.
  • For a grander vision of Cornwall’s history, Lanhydrock is a fully preserved late Victorian mansion, where you can see the grandeur of the family rooms upstairs, along with all the paraphernalia of the working kitchens below. You can hire bicycles here to cycle through the extensive grounds and beyond too.
