Rose Cottage (Cornwall) holiday home details

Rose Cottage is a charming, pretty two-bedroom Cornish cottage, full of character and just a few minutes’ stroll from the centre of Fowey, a quintessential Cornish fishing village. With an enclosed patio garden that’s a real sun trap, this is a truly relaxing and cosy retreat that also puts you in easy reach of beaches, ferries and more – you could find you don’t even need to use the car!

The sheltered harbour of Fowey is a truly magical destination, and Rose Cottage is just a short stroll up the hill from the centre of this. Open the gate to the property and you’ll discover the private, enclosed patio garden. It’s such a sun trap and a rare treat not to be underestimated in the centre of Fowey where few cottages benefit from their own private outside space.

This typically Cornish holiday retreat boasts lots of character and the interior is lovely and bright, thanks to the neutral tones that make the most of all that seaside light. The spacious living room comes with a ‘rainy day cupboard,’ where you’ll find board games, books and DVDs to keep the little ones entertained. In the kitchen there’s a dining table and chairs to seat four, so plenty of room for you to enjoy meals together. Rose Cottage’s elevated position makes it a wonderfully peaceful place to return to after a day exploring the delights South Cornwall has to offer, but it is equally well located to easily reach on foot everything that Fowey has to offer.

The story goes that Rose Cottage was originally the home of the local milliners and hatmakers of Fowey. It’s certainly ideally located for everything that the town has to offer. You can stroll down the hill to the beach at Ready Money Cove or to wander along the harbourside where you can take a ferry to Polruan on the other side of the river. As with most properties in Fowey, Rose Cottage doesn’t have its own parking. There’s space outside to load and unload, but for overnight and longer stays please use one of the town’s public car parks.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • For a different view of the harbour, take the Polruan ferry over the River Fowey. The ferry departs every 10 or 15 minutes and it’s a delightful way to get started on the South West Coast Footpath.
  • During your stay in Fowey, you really should visit St Catherine’s Castle, one of two artillery forts that were built by Henry VIII to defend the harbour. It’s a bit of a climb, but the views are worth it. After coming back down, you’re in the perfect place for a spot of sunbathing at Ready Money Beach.
  • Narrow streets, steep hills, quaint fishing cottages and a working harbour – no, we’re not describing Fowey, but Mevagissey an equally charming Cornish destination. There are lots of seafood restaurants tucked away in the maze of lanes and streets here. Once you’ve enjoyed some fresh fish, why not spend the afternoon at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, a Victorian gem that was rediscovered and brought back to its former glory in the 1990s.
  • Further inland from Fowey is the town of Lostwithiel, This Norman town saw a lot of fighting in the Civil War, and much of it was rebuilt in the 17th century. There are plenty of antique shops to wander through – look out for a bargain! Not far from Lostwithiel is Restormel Castle, a perfectly round, 13th century ruin that stands proudly on a mound above the River Fowey. See if you can spot the famous black pheasants.
  • A short drive away is the Eden Project, a spectacular destination built in the heart of a disused clay pit, with unique ‘biomes’ filled with tropical and Mediterranean plants. This is a gardener’s paradise, and a fun and fascinating day out for all the family too.
