Orchard View

Orchard View forms one of six sympathetically restored apartments in a period Regency Country House in Fowey. It is set in large beautifully maintained gardens and benefits from the shared use of an indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool (40' x 20'), sauna, and a changing room with shower and cloakroom. Orchard View is on the first floor, and has high ceilings, large Georgian windows and solid oak flooring. Outside there is parking for two cars. The nearest beach is Readymoney Cove, a ten-fifteen minute walk from the end of the garden via a picturesque wooded footpath known as The Parade. Readymoney Cove has a sandy beach with rock pools and safe swimming. Walkers can easily access the south west coast path and the Saint's Way from the gate at the end of the garden. Polkerris beach can be reached by both paths. Polriddmouth, which is a gently shelving beach and ideal for picnics and swimming, is a twenty minute walk. Par and Polkerris beaches are approximately a ten minute drive. Fowey town centre is a 10-15 minute walk.

OUR HANDY GUIDE TO FOWEY!

You certainly won’t go hungry while you’re on holiday in Fowey – these are our favourite places to eat out!
- Evening Meals: Appletons, Fowey Harbour Hotel and King of Prussia
- Relaxed and Family Friendly Dining: Sams, The Galleon and Havaeners
- Cafés, Lunch and Light Bites: Brown Sugar, The Lifebouy Café and The Cornish Bakery
- International: Pintxo, Sunny Spice and Bufalla
-Take Home Treats: Haveners Fish & Chips, Kittows Deli and Game of Cones

There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey but the real charm of the town lies in the wide range of boutique, unique, and independent shops. You can spend hours browsing for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children’s toys and don't forget the old-fashioned sweet shop!
There are also top-quality bakeries where you can find bread, rolls, pasties, cakes and treats. There may be no large supermarket, but with two local convenience stores and a Boots, you'll still find everything you need. There is a Co-op around 5 miles away, Asda and Tesco are around 7 miles, and all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well.

Fowey is an estuary river town, so the obvious thing to do is spend a day messing about on the water! There are many kayak, canoe, and boat hire centres that go from both Quays. If you don’t have the strongest sea legs, then why not just take the passenger ferry over to Polruan for an afternoon. If you fancy going a little further, you can take the ferry round to Mevagissey.

In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium and a local history museum - both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th century church in the centre of the town and a 15th century fort, St. Catherine’s Castle, on the edge of the estuary overlooking Readymoney Cove.

The closest beach to town is Readymoney Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming. A swimming platform is moored off the beach during the summer months. There is also a fabulous little shop for all your seaside needs. However, no dogs are allowed between Easter and October.
Within a 5/10-minute drive, you can be at Polridmouth, Polkerris or Par Sands, and within a half hour drive you’ll find Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan or Mevagissey.
An hour’s drive and you are on the north coast of Cornwall – this is where you will find the more dramatic coastline and good surfing on some of the beaches.

Things To See & Do In The Local Area
- There are hundreds of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 330 miles around the county. The Saints Way is 27 miles from Fowey on the south coast, right across to Padstow on the north coast. The Fowey Hall Walk is much more manageable at 4 miles and is the best way to see Fowey from all angles! We also particularly enjoy the Gribbin Head walk, especially when the Daymark is open on Sundays in the summer. Whether you enjoy the sea, woods, rivers, moors or fields, you will not be disappointed with the walks in Cornwall.
- The closest major attractions are The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan. They really do offer something for everyone and make an enjoyable day-trip. For green-fingered travellers, there are also many other great gardens; in fact, there are officially 12 Great Gardens of Cornwall!
- Cornwall is famous for its mining heritage, and you will see many old engine houses dotted across the landscape. The countryside directly surrounding Fowey and St Austell is locally known as Clay Country due to its abundance of China Clay. Wheal Martyn is an interesting museum that gives a good insight into the history and culture of the clay works, and if you take the walk to the top of the grounds it overlooks a modern working pit. Further afield on the North Coast, head to Wheal Coates from the iconic Poldark-style tin mines.
- There are lots of National Trust and English Heritage sites across Cornwall, as well as independent stately homes and gardens. Some of our local favourites are Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Tintagel Castle, Restormel Castle and Caerhays Estate.
- Bit of a thrill seeker? Then Cornwall has some fantastic opportunities to get your adrenaline buzz! Hang Loose at Eden, Adrenaline Quarry near Liskeard and Via Ferrata near Penryn are perfect for a day full of crazy activities.
-If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Kidzworld, Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. This is just small selection of the many dozens of places for families to visit!

Don’t forget to follow Fowey Homes Holidays on social media for inspiration on days out. When booking your trip with us, please feel free to ask for some personal recommendations - we’d love to help you discover the real hidden gems of Cornwall and get the most of out of your time in beautiful Fowey.

Rana (AirBnB) "We loved the appartment as a family of 5 including three teenagers. Quote close to town about a 15 minute walk. Walk back is uphill but great town bus service at only £2. We loved the pool and sauna which we used. Fowey is a great place lovely restaurants and pubs, beaches close. We had rainy weather and had to cut our holiday short and leave a couple of days early for personal reasons so want to rebook for next year."

Liz (AirBnB) "Lovely, clean apartment. Beautiful garden. Host responded really quickly to queries. Swimming pool was just blissful and the private swimming slot system worked really well, we got the pool all to ourselves and were rarely unable to get a slot at around the time we wanted. We would definitely stay here again, in fact we had to tear ourselves away."
