2 bed flat, sleeps 4, in popular Cornish town of Fowey. Amazing view of river and sea, in a converted 19th century coach house. Parking included & spacious balcony. 5 mins town, 2 mins beach. Babysitters available. We have welcomed international guests from many different countries since 1980 when my parents first ran a guesthouse from the family home. The flats were converted in 2008 to self contained units.
Unlike most holiday home owners in Fowey, we are very happy to live in the town. Our local connections can help out with any questions you may have.
Nick (my husband) and I bought Albert Place in 2011. I had spent an idyllic childhood here, in a house which hosted students from around the world, after-school evenings on the beach, sand in my hair and dodgy tales of Gossips ‘nightclub’. Nick (though it was hardly his fault) grew up in Hampshire.
We both moved to London to find our fortunes, Sinead as a press officer, working with charities and social entrepreneurs, Nick as a journalist (Guardian, Times Magazine, Radio Times) and author (Dalek I Loved You). After meeting over a love of karaoke and pub quizzes, we waved goodbye to the city for Fowey with our baby daughter, Regan (named after John Thaw’s character in The Sweeney), so she too could have afternoons on a beach. Fortunately, Gossips had shut down.
Together we set up the popular Love Fowey website and Nick also runs the Any Old Lights vintage marine lighting shop next to the church. Another wee one, Soren, came along (named from our love of Scandinavian films and crime dramas), and we now live around 10 minutes up the hill.
We are lucky enough to live in one of the most gorgeous places in the UK - we know the town and surrounding areas very well and are happy to help with any requests you may have
