This superbly presented holiday home sits on a large site with sea views and is within walking distance of the middle of the sailing centre of Fowey or the beach at Readymoney Cove. It is also used from time to time as a Christian Retreat and therefore it is a very peaceful and spiritual place to stay.

Property Details

Whether you want a special place to spend time with the family or a get-away-from-it-all time with friends, Fowey Retreat is the perfect place for your Cornish holiday. Near enough to join in with anything that is going on yet secluded, quiet and private on the edge of beautiful country and just a short walk from the glorious coastal path. Lankelly Lane is Fowey’s best kept secret. The Lane is just above the town, its houses set in their own large private, enclosed gardens with a long view over the fields to the ocean. The Lane is overwhelmingly occupied by local people. Turn left out of the five bar gate and you head towards Lankelly Farm past the local riding stables, Coombe and the breathtaking views of Polridmouth beach, the National Trust coastal path and the great ascent to the Gribben Head. Or shortcut across the headland via the woodland paths of Tregaminion and Menabilly (Du Maurier country) to the sandy beach and rockpools of Polkerris and Sam's wonderful restaurant or a pint at the Rashleigh Arms. Turn right and you are a 10 minute walk from the town centre or 200 yards from the tree lined path down to Neptune Point and Readymoney Cove and St. Catherine’s Castle.

Fowey Retreat is used for some of the year as a Christian Retreat. It is a spiritual place and there is a wonderful library containing a large collection of religious reading as well as many other themes.

Property Location


Fowey (pronounced Foy) is one of the most iconic places in Cornwall. Set on the steep banks on the Fowey Estuuary, the narrow streets and alleys are just great to explore. Just watching the activities in the harbour can keep you occupied for many hours! Life in Fowey revolves around the water. The local fishing fleet land the freshest catches and local specialities include mussels, oysters, clams, crab & lobster. There are some great restaurants and pubs around and nearby. Try one of Sam's restaurants or a little drive inland to the historic Crown Inn at Lanlivery is well worth the effort.

Life on the water culminates in the middle of August with the Fowey Regatta Week where yacht racing takes place all week. Watch the historic Famouth Working Boats racing in the close confines of the estuary or enjoy the many festivities around the town. The highlight is without doubt the spectacular display by the Red Arrows who rate Fowey as one of their most dramatic displays because of the steep valley. There are countless attractions near to Fowey including the Eden Project, Lanhydrock House & Gardens and the beautiful Luxulyan Valley.

The Eden project is 3 miles Fowey 3 miles. Lost Gardens of Heligan 10 miles. Almost on the doorstep Par duck ponds & woodland walks link to the Clay trails long distance cycle paths.

Family Holiday for Christmas 2017

We all had a lovely stay at the Fowey Retreat over the Christmas week. Plenty of places to visit nearby and lots of good walks nearby. You do need good weather to make good use of the lovely garden. The Owner was very welcoming and accommodating.

A memorable stay

A comfortable, well-equipped house. A little dated but homely. A truly excellent garden that is large and safely contained proving ideal for children. The large patio and garden table were great for alfresco meals. Some extra chairs in the Lounge would have been good since only 6 can be accommodated at the moment. Fowey itself is charming and there are pretty little lanes nearby that give access to the local beach. Would definitely recommend this property to others. It was great value for money

Great stay at Fowey Retreat

Fowey Retreat is a nice traditional house. The garden is lovely and great for kids. We loved the location with walks to several beaches along country paths, which meant we could leave the car at home. Fowey is a lovely little place, and it's also close to the Eden Project and Lanhydrock house. We would happily return to the house again.

A fantastic house, with incredible garden

A beautiful house, well equipped, with a glorious garden for everyone to enjoy. We we were a mixed party with an age range of 4 to 70s and the house worked perfectly for everyone. Fab kitchen with most things you could need and a lovely table for breakfast. Lots of showers for a large group and plenty of space so you don't feel on top of each other. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Review of Fowey House

Very spacious house and lovely garden. Good bathroom facilities and comfortable beds. Lovely area and short walk into town. Lack of wifi not a problem for us but maybe for others.

Fowey retreat

Really enjoyed the stay at Fowey. The garden was a major contributing factor, the space was amazing! House is comfortable and roomy. Everything was perfect. Although it was not an issue for us, the location could be a difficulty for some families. The house is situated somewhat out of town, it is within walking distance if you are ok with steep hills!

Fowey Retreat

This is a very comfortable property, ideal for an extended family get-together. We were there in winter, when it was very cosy. The outdoor areas would be lovely in summer. Sarah and Robbie were very thoughtful and welcoming. The only improvement we would have liked was a larger fridge - in a property which sleeps ten the fridge really was a bit on the small side. However, the kitchen was very well equipped in all other respects, and this did not spoil our stay.
