Location description from owner

The England region

Cornwall is surrounded by the sea, has beautiful sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, rolling hills & unspoilt countryside. With its mild climate Cornwall has numerous magical gardens to visit including Trelissik, Trebah, The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Llanhydrock (NT), the grandest house in Cornwall with an exquisite long gallery ceiling & lovely gardens. There are also lots of family attractions to visit including the Eden Project, Fistral beach in Newquay for surfing, and for nature lovers the Cornish Bird of Prey centre, & the Seal sanctury at Gweek. We also as a family love to visit Paradise Park, a zoo & amusement park, St. Michaels Mount, & Minack Theatre & beach.All of the above attractions are within an hours drive of Helen House apart from Minack Theatre - but the views & beach on a sunny day are well worth the effort!

Fowey

The property is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in an elevated position enjoying outstanding estuary views of the beautiful River Fowey. The town of Fowey (as featured on Three men in another boat & Channel 4's Relocation Relocation Relocation;) has a unique unspoilt and ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages. The medieval and tudor cottages, narrow winding streets with glimpses of the river below, busy with yachts and boats, cobbled walkways perfumed with flowers from hanging baskets and window boxes and the quay bustling with life all help to create a unique atmosphere.Privately owned "Place" a part 15th century fortified manor house, viewed from the balcony of Helen House, dominates the town. Still owned by the Treffrys, one of Cornwall's most ancient families, its fortifications and high boundary wall give the town a historical atmosphere. There is a good selection of quality restaurants, cafes, pubs & shops to be found The town has strong connections with the world famous authoress Daphne Du Maurier who spent most of her life living in the area.

Fowey is excellent for learning to sail (there are two yacht clubs offering tuition for beginners & the more advanced sailors - we can provide contacts & details of costs), canoeing, rock-pooling, snorkeling as well as golfing, boat hire, horse riding, walking, crab catching off the harbour pontoons or for beach relaxation.

Nearby is Polkeris beach watersports centre where sailing boats, kayaks and windsurf boards can be hired (together with wetsuits and buoyancy aids) at a very reasonable cost. The centre uses new equipment and offers excellent tuition by the hour or there are daily rates. A safety boat is in the water whenever the equipment is hired.

Much of the land around Fowey is owned by the National Trust with many delightful walks both in the countryside and along the coast. A haven for flora and fauna, this area has long been popular with naturalists, bird watchers (with sightings of ospreys & little egrets) painters and walkers, particularly during the gentle spring and autumn weather so common here.

Close by are delightful fishing villages to explore such as Polperro, Golant, Gorran Haven, Charlestown & Mevagissey. A short drive to the North is the moated 13th -century Restormel Castle, a steam train which runs from Bodmin, on the edge of Bodmin Moor, & Lostwithiel home to several good restaurants & the centre of Cornwall's antique trade.

“Comfortable holiday apartment with stunning views over historic Fowey harbour”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2016

Helen House is a wonderful holiday apartment a stone's throw from the historic harbour with stunning views of the estuary, and the rooftops of the harbour area including the church and Porphyry Hall. A short walk down the admittedly quite steep road to the harbour area brings you to the shops, cafes and restaurants within 2 or 3 minutes. Unusually for such a central location in Fowey, it has parking! The house itself is very comfortable, with a high standard of decoration and comfort in all rooms. The two main bedrooms and the living room have views over the harbour. The kitchen is well appointed and has everything you could need. The bathrooms were very clean and well appointed. Everything is easy to use and there were plenty of helpful instructions for appliances etc. The town and surrounding area is very beautiful and you are well positioned for forays into Bodmin and further west into Cornwall. We had a great time and recommend this apartment for anyone wanting a relaxing family holiday in a historic and beautiful town.

“Stunning views”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2015

Lovely modern spacious house with comfortable furniture and two balconies with stunning views of the Fowey estuary. The house is situated close to Fowey town centre with great pubs and restaurants all within walkable distance. This Is an Ideal rental for families wanting a relaxing holiday with all mods cons in a fantastic location!

“Lovely house with stunning balcony views”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2014

The moment my son and I walked into Helen House we fell in love with it. The rooms were tastefully furnished and both bathrooms were beautifully refurbished and had high-tech mirrors. The house has six levels and each and every level has its own personal touch. The kitchen is fully-equipped and clean as is the rest of Helen House. The property has three balconies which all have stunning views, especially the top balcony. We were informed very well by the owner, who had also sent a list of useful recommendations.We enjoyed every minute and intend to go back next year.

“Great Views”

Reviewed 3 Jul 2014

Helen House is set out in a way to maximize the awesome views of Fowey and the port. There are no less than three large balconies, all with incredible views. The rest of the house was well presented and cleaned to a high standard. The host communicated extremely well throughout the trip, providing recommendations for things to do in Fowey as well as useful information regarding the house to ensure our stay was hassle free. All in all we would definitely go back, highly recommend the house!

“A beautiful house in stunning Fowey”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2014

We had a fantastic stay in Helen House. The house is very well presented and spotlessly clean with fantastic views over the river Fowey, providing all we needed for a very comfortable and pleasant stay. Fowey harbour, the lovey shops, pubs and tea rooms and the beach are in walking distance. On site parking is a bonus too! Fowey is beautiful ! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely house for your stay in beautiful Fowey.

“Best view of Fowey River”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

My family loved this town house, notwithstanding the fact it is over five half floors. Good size rooms with large kitchen and lounge. Great views of River Fowey from all levels and in particular from the lounge on top floor. All rooms were well appointed. A bit tight for a large car, but is space for two vehicles. Plenty of good bars/pubs/eating places in Fowey also an excellent butcher/deli and bread shop.

“Super house in a spectacular location”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2013

Helen House is a spacious and immaculately presented townhouse located high up in Fowey overlooking the river. It is worth staying there for the views alone. The house easily accommodated our party - Lynn, Paul, Rebecca, Steve and Hannah and is well equiped with TVs, DVD players, games consul, Wi-Fi and reading matter - you wouldn't ever get bored there. Fowey itself is a very pretty little place made up of narrow streets (some on the steep side) full of old pubs, eating places and interesting shops. Fowey is perhaps not the cheapest place ever but, equally, not by any means exorbitant. Closeby, you have Polperro, Looe, Mevagissey, St Austell, Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Overall, this is a fabulous part of England yet, somehow, you don't feel like you are in England. Go there!
