About this property
Rose Cottage was originally the home of the local milliners and hatmakers of Fowey, ideally located for everything this colourful harbour town has to offer. With an elevated position and views over the town from the bedroom windows, this humble dwelling is bursting with character and modern finishing touches to make you feel right at home. Use the bright and sunny sitting room to spend your down time, get a board game out of the 'rainy day cupboard' and crowd around the coffee table, while the open fire takes the chill off a winter's evening after a bracing walk along the coast. You have a lovely dining area in the kitchen, ideal for a delicious, home-cooked feasts prepared by the chef of the group. Climb the stairs to the bedrooms after an adventure on the South West Coast Path and retire to either the king-size double or a twin, both served by the well-appointed bathroom. The enclosed garden to the front of the property is a real sun trap, with outdoor furniture for relaxed alfresco dining on a long summer's evening, washed down with a refreshing bottle of wine. If you can tear yourself away from this hidden gem in the heart of the Fowey, stroll down the hill to the beach at Ready Money Cove and take in the beautiful views out across the sea, or wander along the magical harbourside, where you can see people crabbing, then take a ferry across to Polruan on the other side of the river. Other attractions in the area include The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project and the charming town of Mevagissey, with its narrow streets and a cluster of shops, pubs and galleries cradling the waterfront. With plenty of walking, cycling and watersports to occupy your time, this is peaceful getaway to return to, in a sought-after location.
