Holiday Rental House -
4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Fowey, Cornwall, England
The Lookout, having recently been completely renovated in 2015, is situated over three floors with glorious estuary views and only a few minutes walk to the heart of Fowey. Tastefully decorated throughout with spacious living accomodation and four good sized bedrooms makes this property ideal for those wishing to holiday in the beautiful, historic, harbourside town of Fowey.

Fowey features vivacious narrow streets encompassing small independent retailers and superb dining experiences, leading down to the beautiful waterfront which is a mecca for sailing enthusiasts due to the deep water harbour and being an area of outstanding natural beauty.

We were there for the Christmas festival. It was a great experience and well organised. We joined the procession at the quay some 200 yards towards town. Free mulled wine was in plentiful supply being served warm from thermos flasks. A truly memorable experience. The house was excellent and comfortable but we did all think the kitchen was over engineered....

"The Lookout" is a fantastic property, located in a perfect location in Fowey and the views from all the front facing rooms towards the Bodinnick ferry and upper estuary are awesome. The property was presented well, very clean and all the rooms were beautifully furnished. We felt at home for our week long stay. We could have stayed there forever....

About the neighbourhood
In the centre of Fowey there is also a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th church and a 15th century castle fort.

There are a variety of activities on the water, ranging from organised boat trips to canoe hire.

The closest permanent is Ready Money Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming.
There is also a tidal sea-pool hidden away at the Whitehouse Pier! Within a five-ten minute drive, you can be at Polkerris beach and Par Sands, and within a half hour drive there is Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan and Mevagissey.
There are many thousands of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 630 miles around the county!
