Description

*The Salt Loft is currently undergoing a full redesign and the new look will be revealed in Spring 2019! We will update photo's as soon as the transformation is complete*

The Salt Loft is a beautifully appointed one bedroom apartment nestled just 30 metres from the Quay.
Situated in the heart of Fowey, yet hidden away with its own secure entrance, the newly professionally designed Salt Loft has been lovingly refurbished with exquisite attention to detail and lavish furnishings.

Two flights of white marble stairs lead to the apartment, which faces south. The large, 22 ft L-shaped contemporary living/dining room is furnished to a very high standard with a "New York Loft" theme, yet still commanding a chic cozy feel with brand new 43" 2017 LG high definition smart TV.

The kitchen is fully equipped to meet all your needs and the bedroom has a king size glamorous bed again with another high definition 32" 2017 LG smart TV.

The Salt Loft is on Fore Street in the very centre of the town and does not have private parking. There is a loading bay outsdie the apartment to load/unload bags and the closest car park, Caffa Mill, is around a 10 minute walk.

There are three long stay car parks in Fowey, all run by Cornwall Council. You can get hourly, daily, weekly and rover passes on their website or using the Just Park app.
There is also a free car park opposite squire’s field on Park Road. There are no allocated spaces and can fill up quickly during the summer weeks.
During the winter (Oct 1st – Apr 30th) there is a 2-hour short-stay car park on the town quay. There is also a short stay car park all year round at Albert Quay.

SHOPPING

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.

Anna via AirBnB
We had a great stay and enjoyed exploring Fowey and the South Coast. This apartment was such a comfortable place to come back to every day after hiking or driving trips. Immaculately clean, with great amenities and couldn't be a better location in the heart of the village. We would stay again when next in Fowey.

We booked the Salt Loft based on the photographs and description and it lived up to all our expectations. Situated in the heart of Fowey it was an ideal location to explore the town and it’s surroundings and the apartment itself was decorated and furnished to the highest standard. As a bonus we had booked it during the Fowey Regatta week (completely unintentionally) so there were loads of events and activities laid on - a real cherry on the cake!

A great, very tastefully and high quality furnished apartment right in the center of Fowey. Nothing is missing except for the dishwasher. The decor is luxurious and it is very clean and well maintained. One morning the hot water spa was broken. We reported that in the morning and in the evening everything was fixed. The property management opposite is very nice and takes care of everything immediately. With regard to parking, it is recommended to register with JustPark for the Roverticket. With this one can use the "long stay carpark" in many places for a small surcharge. Once registered, you do not have to do any more at the parking lots.

Had a lovely stay at the Salt Loft, a stylish apartment perfect for two. It was a little bigger than expected and spotlessly clean. No outdoor space but you’re two minutes from the harbour and ten minutes from the south west coast path and the beach. All modern facilities such as large TV with Netflix and a Nespresso machine. The bed was very comfy too. All in all it’s very stylish and comfortable and we’d love to stay again.
