We are in the tiny hamlet of Pont, on the River Fowey. Here you will find fab country walks in the heart of an area of natural outstanding beauty.

Children and dogs are very welcome - we even have a canine washroom under the house!
Wind your way through the trees and up on the hill, and you'll find Treetops overlooking Pont Creek. Your own private Shangri-La! A detached house with a 360 degree terrace, looking through the trees to the creek and National Trust countryside.
Treetops can accommodate the largest of family parties, with three main bedrooms (complete with dressing rooms) plus two twin rooms perfect for children and teens.
There are also three large bathrooms with walk in marble and glass showers.
Treetops has a large spacious feel, so you can spend quality time entertaining together, but also with the chance to escape and relax separately.
Our stunning house is approximately one mile along the river from Fowey, where you can visit the charming harbour, quality restaurants and coffee houses, with the coastal soundtrack provided by passing boats and the cry of gulls.
Sitting out on the terrace reading that book you could never finish at home or in the large conservatory having a drink still enjoying the view - whatever your pleasure, it's at your fingertips.
And with a setting as unique and special as Treetops, we're sure you will return year after year.

There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey such as Seasalt, Joules, Fat Face, and Mountain Warehouse. 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.
THINGS TO SEE & DO
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 too.
In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium, and a local 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.
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.
There is a secret sea-pool hidden away at Whitehouse Pier which is perfect for a refreshing paddle while looking out over the estuary. It can only be found at certain times, so check those tide times!
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 views, coastline and good surfing on some of the beaches.
Bit of a thrill seeker? Then Cornwall has some fantastic opportunities to get your adrenaline buzz! Hang Loose at Eden have zip wires and giant air swings, Adrenaline Quarry near Liskeard is perfect for a day full of crazy activities, and Retallack Watersports near Newquay is the place to head for total-wipeout style aqua adventures.
There are hundreds of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 630 miles around the county, and 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 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 very famous for its tin 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.
There are lots of National Trust and English Heritage sites across Cornwall, as well as stately homes and gardens. Some of our local favourites are Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Restormel Castle and Caerhays Estate.
Thinking of bringing your 4-legged friend to Fowey? They will love it! Par Sands Beach and Polridmouth Cove are only a few minutes away and are dog-friendly all year round; Readymoney Cove in town allows them to play from October to Easter. Many of the pubs are pup-friendly, and Lazy Jacks even sell doggy ice cream! Sams on the Beach at Polkerris have a Waggy Wednesday during the winter, when you can take your dog for dinner followed by a walk on the beach – special pet friendly treats are on offer too.
If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Kidzworld, Indoor Active, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. This is just small selection of the many dozens of places for families to visit! Pop into our office during your stay to pick up our “best days out” pack, full of leaflets and vouchers.
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.

Airy, light and with practical space.
Our stay was predominantly overcast and damp. However, 'Treetops' is certainly in the treetops of the Pont Estuary and was especially beautiful when the sun eventually appeared the day before our return. Lovely walks and within easy reach of Fowey and other points of interest. Good time and place to spend time with three generations.

You will not be dissapointed with Treetops. It is exactly as it sounds! You are high up in a house which has the most stunning views. Lots of various decking eating places and all the facilities you would expect and more. The driveway entrance is a little challenging but if you follow the welcome letter you will find this ok. One of the most fascinating things at Treetops is that your stay comes with a canoe!! Thought I had misread but no. Life jackets are also provided so they have thought of everything. A short ferry away with the car you will come into Fowey. The beach is safe and great for children. The town picturesque, a definite visit. The scenery breathtaking. I will defiantly use this house again in the future.

Treetops is literally situated at the top of a Treeline with views looking down onto Pont Quay, and a couple of National Trust properties. The nearby walks to Polruan and Boddinick through woodland are fantastic.The birdlife is abundant and listening to owls in the evening and a babbling brook soon soothes the mind. Property is in immaculate condition and clean. Bring a couple of books and a car. We highly recommend Treetops to anyone who wants a relaxing , get away from it all, holiday.

What a great house living up to it's name looking over woodland and down to the river Fowey. The house is lovely, extremely comfortable, with luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. A good place to share with family or friends with lots of privacy within the house and plenty of different sitting areas. It is very well equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. The setting is very tranquil but within easy reach of Fowey via The Bodinnick ferry which was great fun, we then went on another small passenger ferry over to Polruan to The Luggar Inn for fish and chips. We only had 2 nights at treetops but will be back again to explore more of Cornwall from that brilliant location.

Splendid isolation .We stayed for a long weekend. A great place for chilling out and recharging the batteries. Not too far from civilisation. Gloriously tranquil, fabulous views, well equipped and very comfortable.
