Property Details

In a lovely, quiet spot by the pretty medieval church but a minute's walk from shops, great eateries and the quay, and five minutes to the nearest of Fowey's two sandy beaches, the cottage is decorated with exquisite attention to detail and is brim full of seaside light and period charm. The cottage is wonderfully equipped with everything you'll need and everything has been thought of to offer a truly unique and special place to stay.

A short stroll to sandy beaches, exhilarating walks along some of the loveliest heritage coastal paths, kayaking up river for a picnic in the spot that inspired Wind in the Willows, or some truly good food and lovely little shops. The Sea Swallow is the perfect base for exploring many of Cornwall's wonderful attractions or just tucking yourselves away for a cosy break with everything you need just a stroll away.

The Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock and the breathtakingly beautiful Bodmin moor are nearby. It's easy to see why Daphne DuMaurier fell instantly in love with pretty Fowey and made it her home, it's deep harbour setting nestled into steep green hills rolling out to sea weave some special kind of magic on you.

There are two beautiful spacious bedrooms with sumptuous kingsize beds and deliciously luxurious goose down duvets covered in pure natural linen and Eqyptian cotton sateen. The largest room has a gorgeous window seat with views to the water and is also designed to be made up as a single bed, with curtains to pull across creating a snug extra space for a child to sleep. There's a cot if needed, too, and each bedroom has a hairdryer, sewing kit and clock.
