Pricing From: £381.00

Rose Cottage is a charming, pretty two-bedroom Cornish cottage, full of character and just a few minutes' stroll from the centre of Fowey. With an enclosed patio garden that's a real sun trap, it's a truly relaxing and cosy retreat that puts you in easy reach of beaches, ferries and more - you could find you don't even use the car.

The sheltered harbour of Fowey is a truly magical destination, and Rose Cottage is just a short stroll up the hill from the centre of this. Open the gate to the property and you'll discover the private, enclosed patio garden. It's such a sun trap and a rare treat not to be underestimated in the centre of Fowey where few cottages benefit from their own private outside space.

This typically Cornish holiday retreat boasts lots of character and the interior is lovely and bright, thanks to the neutral tones that make the most of all that seaside light. The spacious living room comes with a 'rainy day cupboard,' where you'll find board games, books and DVDs to keep the little ones entertained. In the kitchen there's a dining table and chairs to seat four, so plenty of room for you to enjoy meals together. Rose Cottage's elevated position makes it a wonderfully peaceful place to return to after a day exploring the delights South Cornwall has to offer, but it is equally well located to easily reach on foot everything that Fowey has to offer.

The story goes that Rose Cottage was originally the home of the local milliners and hatmakers of Fowey. It's certainly ideally located for everything that the town has to offer. You can stroll down the hill to the beach at Ready Money Cove or to wander along the harbourside where you can take a ferry to Polruan on the other side of the river. As with most properties in Fowey, Rose Cottage doesn't have its own parking. There's space outside to load and unload, but for overnight and longer stays please use one of the town's public car parks.
