    “It would be helpful to have move cleaning products that can be used during our stay.”

    The property smelt very musty, it would have been nice to have had some air fresheners to cover this.

    - Mrs Bertorelli, August 2020

The 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.

About the location


Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
