Fowey River Views

Come and enjoy River Views in Fowey, a relaxing and peaceful home from home, perfect for a holiday with family or friends, or for a romantic break for two. The wonderful views in this stylish apartment draw visitors back time and again.

The lovely Juliet balcony is the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, whilst watching the various activities or wildlife on the water. Delightful coastal walks are on your doorstep, along with other activities such as sailing, kayaking and boat trips.

The shops and restaurants of Fowey are just a short stroll away, while Readymoney Cove, a sheltered sandy beach, is approximately fifteen minutes walk away. Fowey is well placed for trips to The Eden Project and other days out in the beautiful county of Cornwall.

The Cornwall region

Cornwall benefits from the warm waters of the Gulf Stream (from the Gulf of Mexico) providing a warmer climate than many parts of the UK, (palm trees are common throughout Cornwall!). Cornwall is also the most southerly county in the UK. with the largest coast-line of any county in England.

Fowey is on the South Coast of Cornwall, on the English Channel where sailing, kayaking and many other water sports are popular, only 20 miles away is the North Coast on the Atlantic, where the big breakers provide a surfers paradise.

River Views is only 6 miles from the world renowned Eden Project. There is much to do in the area - the magnificent Lanhydrock House (National Trust) is only 7 miles away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are 15 miles away. Antony House where the 2010 Alice in Wonderland was filmed is 24 miles away. Padstow, Falmouth and St. Ives are within easy reach for a day out, if you fancy exploring further afield.


Fowey offers some very special events including the Daphne Du Maurier festival in May, Fowey Royal Regatta Week in August and the Christmas Market in December.

Fowey has attracted many artistic types over the years from Daphne Du Maurier and Kenneth Grahame, who drew inspiration from the River Fowey for Wind in the Willows, (see the events guide below for 'Wind in the WIllows' river trips) to our more recent stars of TV & stage!

The largest beach in Fowey is Readymoney Cove, with a summer swimming raft it's great fun for all the family. Whitehouse beach disappears completely at high tide, but is a little quieter than Readymoney, with a children's paddling pool in the summer months. A short drive (or 3 mile walk) is Polkerris Beach, voted #1 beach in Cornwall, (check out the guide in the apartment for 'hidden beaches'). Crabbing and rock pooling are always great fun too!

There are some fine walks in the area that take in the fantastic views around the Cornish coast line. We like to take the car ferry to Bodinnick then walk along Hall walk to Polruan further down the river returning to Fowey by passenger Ferry.

The Fowey to Mevagissey ferry runs from May through September and offers a really good day out, either to Mevagissey or via Mevagissey to Heligan Gardens, along with the fast, fun and scenic 35 minute boat ride. The trip is across open sea - so can be weather dependent - and provides an opportunity, if you are lucky, to see dolphins, basking sharks and diving gannets

Boats and kayaks are available for hire in Fowey harbour in the summer months.

Thanks for your kinds words - we try to think 'what do we like when renting a holiday home' and include everything we can think of. We've also had some really useful feedback over the past few years and implemented where possible (even the fench doors & Juliet balcony!)!. Good point about the stairs, (we mention this on our website) some elderly may struggle depending on their fitness(!), it is however family friendly with a stair gate etc.

Thank you for your kind comments. We really value suggestions from guests and have made many enhancements to River Views based on this feedback. We initially added a double-bed to the master bedroom as we thought the space would perhaps not allow for a king-size, however, we are now planning to upgrade the bed to king size in the future. Thanks for your feedback.
