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, 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.
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.

This is a beautiful house. Easy to relax and watch life go by on the estuary. Fowey is a friendly town with excellent shops and eating places.Ms Barbara Shore - 11th July 2019
Love it!Mrs Julia Hardy - 25th April 2019
51 The Esplanade is a beautiful property with stunning views. Comfortable beds, great showers and a well-equipped kitchen. I hope we can stay again sometime. Mrs Andrea Healey - 18th April 2019
Excellent service and the property is in the perfect position for river/estuary views and easy access to the town and its restaurants. We would recommend this property without any hesitation and we hope to return in the near future.Mr Geoffrey Bowers - 26th September 2018
Beautiful location and lots to see and do in the area.Mrs Gill Busby - 11th September 2018
This was our 3rd holiday with Cornish Horizons over the past 24 months. Lovely properties. Absolutely loved our holiday at #51. Gorgeous house. Everything worked well and the views are breathtaking. We’d love to book again. Mrs Elizabeth Fenwick - 15th July 2018
This is a beautiful property with excellent views over the estuary. Prime position for watching the yacht races and all the interesting comings and goings on the river. The best bit is that the kitchen doors open right up so that the airy feel of the terrace extends to the kitchen and dining area. Ms Barbara Shore - 8th July 2018
51 Esplanade is a very nice property, well equipped and in a fantastic location right on the estuary front with outstanding views of the estuary across to Polruan (which has a working boat yard which can be a be a little bit noisy) & views towards the sea & towards Fowey front, which is only a 5 minutes walk away with all the pubs, eating out places and shops. Downside is the parking 500 yards up a steep hill but if you're lucky enough there is free parking 500 yards away towards Readymoney Cove, there is 2 hour parking 30 yards away which is convenient if you get a space, plus we found the outside furniture a little bit hard (wood) if you want to spend a lot of time outside. Would we stay there again? DEFINITELY!Mr Robert Langham - 22nd May 2018
Excellent situation, lovely comfy beds, excellent showers, stunning views. We would definitely recommend a stay there! Mrs Andrea Healey - 15th April 2018
Fantastic property. Would love to stay during summer months to fully take advantage of all the house brings with the bi folding doors and windows open. Mr D Rawlinson - 3rd November 2017
Great service from Charlotte in the Fowey Office!Mr Paul Evans - 12th October 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed the location, the house, the views and generally it was a very comfortable home and ideal as a holiday home. We really enjoyed our stay overall and would definitely consider 51 Esplanade again.Mr Andrew Ferrier - 4th September 2017
The property is beautiful Ms Barbara Shore - 10th July 2017
The house is absolutely wonderful. The decor and standard of finish is exceptional, with perfect views across the estuary. We had a memorable family holiday and enjoyed the space and comfort this house provided. We didn't want the leave. Mr Malcolm Finch - 2nd April 2017
The property is altogether perfect!!Mrs Nicola Maciver - 16th October 2016
51 Esplanade is truly the most perfectly positioned property, sit back and enjoy the views and water based activity that makes Fowey so special.Mrs J Sproule - 24th August 2016
This is a great property. Ideal for chilling on the terrace with the best view in Fowey of the Wednesday evening races. The doors from the kitchen open up completely so you feel you are outside while inside!Ms Barbara Shore - 3rd July 2016
