This group of beautiful cottages lie in the glorious surroundings of Fowey, a fascinating village which has something for guests of all ages. You will be spoilt for choice between the two retreats, each designed in a luxurious fashion, divided between a cosy lounge, dining area, and a modern kitchen, which can be enjoyed morning through to evening. Whether you are gathering with your loved ones around the fire, or settling down for dinner after the sunsets, you will look forward to returning here, taking in the immaculate décor and its hidden charm. There is an abundance of character oozing through the properties - despite being refurbished, Serendipity boasts an interesting history once upon a time selling and exhibiting the famous Shallow Pool dolls. The bedrooms compliment the heart-warming feel of the cottage in its entirety, introducing lovely bedding, neutral colours, and coordinated accessories, for a serene effect. The modern bathrooms come excellently presented as all-white suites, classically arranged to ensure you can get ready at ease throughout the day. Shell Seekers even brings you a lovely outside area to the rear, a tiered garden on a number of different levels; the top most of which has lovely views up the river. The property is only a short walk (approx 5 min) into the centre of town, whilst the harbour, shops and restaurants rest in the opposite direction, and only a minute’s walk is the Caffa Mill Car park and the Car and Passenger Ferry over to Bodinnick. The quaint cottages and a mixture of medieval and Georgian historic buildings resting upon cobbled walkways all add to the enchanting atmosphere. With a fine selection of quality shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, Fowey really is a vibrant destination. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
A shared pathway takes you along a small terrace of lovely cottages where you will discover The Shell Seekers, a cosy retreat tucked away into the charm of Fowey.

About the location
Eden project 1 mile; Charlestown 3 miles; St Austell 3 miles; Mevagissey 14 miles.
St Blazey is a small town situated 3miles east of St Austell and is nowadays best known for being the closest to the Eden Project, which is a 10 minute drive from the cottage. Nearby Charlestown is a delightful and much sought after coastal village of stone cottages and regency houses. It is famous for its collection of tall ships riding at anchor in the harbour, the shipwreck museum, excellent pubs and restaurants and easy access to the coastal path. More recently it has become famous for the scenes filmed there for the Poldark series. The old market town of St Austell lies just a few miles from the south coast. A short drive will take you to fashionable Fowey, the fishing port of Mevagissey and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. There are also several National Trust gardens and properties within easy reach. With so much to do this is a great year round location.
