Description

Feel yourself swoon as you fall for the elegant design of this beautiful period home with some of the best harbour views we’ve ever seen. Whether you’re sipping bubbles and watching the sunset over the water from the balcony or exploring the town together, this is the place for a holiday that will truly live long in the memory.

Memories you’ll treasure


Four storeys of luxury await you at Aldford House, where you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice on where to sit back and relax. There’s a warm welcome at the front door, with a bench on the south-facing patio terrace where you can bathe in sunlight and admire the pretty alliums and foxgloves around the garden path.

Indoors, throw open the French doors from the open plan living space onto the balcony and flood the room with sea air to lift your spirits as you enjoy reclining on the deep leather sofa. Serve dinner from the dream contemporary kitchen, put together with great care and exquisite taste, on the heirloom dining table and chairs. An impressive painting by artist Lesley Holmes spans the stairwell, its soft neutral colour palette reflected in the soft furnishings and ornaments that adorn the room.

Each of the adult bedrooms has a bay window to make the most of those spectacular views and you’ll want to curl up here to sip your morning coffee as the fishing boats return from sea and the sun peeks out from the horizon. The adorable children’s room has bunk beds and a small library of children’s books for their stories at bedtime.

Bring the dog along, and you’ll find so much to do in the town, like the array of cafes and restaurants to peruse and independent shops that may just have a dog biscuit behind the counter. The landing for the ferry to Polraun is a few moments from your front door, leading to the coastal path towards Lantic Bay. On your return, lean over the boat’s railings to spot Aldford House waiting for you – an oasis of relaxation, all yours, and always waiting to welcome you back.

 

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Reviews

We just wanted to say a massive thanks, in all the times we have stayed in Fowey, nearly 50 years, it was the cleanest, loveliest and closest to home we have experienced. Would love to stay again, so let me know when you have free for next year please.

Past Customer,

We spent our first week out of lockdown in Aldford House, what a wonderful experience! The owner was very helpful. The house itself is beautiful and recently refurbished, I can honestly say I haven't stayed in a better decorated/designed holiday home, beautiful furniture, art work and colour schemes all make this a beautiful stay. The view are just amazing, we spent each morning with a cup of tea watching the comings and goings on the water from the comfort of our bed/window seat! Thank you to The Owner!

Past Customer,

The house is beautifully decorated and was immaculately clean. The beds were great with top quality mattresses and bedding. Great views from the lounge over the Fowey estuary. The owner was always quick to respond to messages. Loved it and would stay again!

Past Customer,

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.
