Description

A beautiful, three-storey, waterside home along the banks of the picturesque Fowey estuary in South East Cornwall, 51 Esplanade enjoys spectacular views over the renowned harbour and the wilds of Polruan.
This breathtaking Cornish home is perfect for families and friends alike.

A modern retreat by the water

From the moment you open the doors to this luxurious coastal abode, you’ll be immersed in the wondrous natural beauty of the Cornish coast in every room. The bright, white-washed wood floors of the large open-plan living space illuminate the room, reflecting the natural light pouring in from the panoramic-windowed seating area with sweeping views. Modern, comfortable lounge chairs are perfect for relaxing in the evenings or cosying up in front of the feature wood burner with a family film on chilly winter afternoons. A stunning spiral staircase takes you to the lower floor where the fully-equipped, sociable, luxe kitchen and dining space has everything you need for cooking up fresh local seafood for a family or friend feast — including an electric oven, nespresso coffee machine, American-style fridge freezer, microwave, dishwasher and wine cooling fridge for your favourite holiday tipple.

The patio terrace enjoys uninterrupted views of the harbour and river across to Polruan, and has comfortable garden furniture and barbecue, perfect for dining in mid-summer sunsets. It is worth noting that there is no parking at the property. It is, however, possible to unload outside, and then purchase weekly parking tickets for the local car park within 400 yards from the home.

Just minutes from the centre of the famed seaside parish, you’ll discover mouthwatering restaurants serving fresh Cornish mussels, coastal-inspired boutiques with unique local art and crafts, and self-drive boats for exploring the inspiring shores of the south coast. Or if you’re looking for a relaxing day along the golden sands of Cornwall, the beautiful beach of Readymoney Cove is a short walk away.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

The 5-star property sleeps up to eight people across four high-standard bedrooms. On the second floor, a double bedroom and king-size room both come with stunning en-suites and thermostatic showers. There is also a family bathroom with sink-in-bath for soaking in the evenings after a long day by the sea. The top floor, a further two bedrooms, one with twin beds the other with two small doubles, share the cosy vaulted space. There is also access to a WC on this level.


Practicalities

Unfortunately, there is no parking at the property but it is possible to unload your luggage outside. You can purchase weekly parking tickets from the car park, 400 yards away from the house. A security deposit of £100.00 is required prior to your holiday. Please bring your own beach towels. Baby items like a highchair and travel cot can be provided but we ask you to please bring your own cot linen. We are happy to provide plenty of logs for the wood burner between October - March.

Special Note: There is a spiral staircase leading to all levels which may be unsuitable for children or guests with limited mobility.

Reviews

This is a really fantastic house. We've been coming here since it was first available and love throwing open the front door (as if it were ours) to friends and family who haven't been before and getting "Wow" or a gasp of breath every time. The views over the estuary are stunning. The kitchen gives onto a terrace with doors that can open right up. - New improved views this year with removal of a raised flower bed. It is very well equipped and very comfortable. The position, by Whitehouse Loan means that it's quiet compared to the often crowded centre of Fowey. Just a couple of minutes to the ferry and away to Polruan.

Ms S,

Location was perfect - so close to the centre but also convenient for beaches, coastal path, ferry, etc. The house is so light and spacious with a variety of seating areas. The little study was a bonus quiet work space.

Mrs A,

We loved our stay at 51 Esplanade, first impressions as we walked through the front door were great especially the view of the estuary, one could while away the days just sat in the bay window watching the ever changing picture! Ideal location for shops, cafes and restaurants of Fowey. House was well furnished and stylish. Only downside for some to consider is the very steep, narrow circular staircase which could be a problem for young children and anyone with mobility issues.

Mrs W,

Location

If you haven't yet discovered Fowey, you've got a treat in store.  Full of multicoloured cottages, perched on the hillsides leading down to the sea, this little fishing town has lots to tempt visitors. 

There is an entrancing collection of unique local shops and boutiques, along with harbourside cafes, pubs which will give you a hearty welcome and a good atmosphere, and restaurants offering tempting local produce.  If you want a unique insight into the local species in these waters, you could visit Fowey Aquarium, whose residents include specimens brought in by local fishermen.

If you're a fan of Daphne du Maurier, you may want to visit the Literary Centre, which gives information and exhibits about the author and her life and work.  There is also the Fowey Festival of Words and Music, held in May, in which du Maurier, and many other authors, artists and musicians, are celebrated.  Another great spectacle is the Fowey Royal Regatta, held in August.

Fowey lies within one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall, and the backdrop of the surrounding countryside, with its tidal creeks, rolling fields and rugged cliffs, will make you want to return here again and again.
