2 The Old Station Master's House

The Old Station's Masters House is a stunning 19th century building in the historic town of Fowey. Number 2 apartment makes for a comfortable and contemporary home away from home. Fully refurbished and decorated for 2023, we have made the most of the light and airy open plan living space. Downstairs, we have two modern bedrooms, each with a bathroom and access to the rear courtyard. The apartment also benefits from a private parking space right outside - a rarity in Fowey!

Apartment Layout.

The front door opens into a large hallway with plenty of space. On the left is the en-suite master bedroom, to the right is the twin bedroom and family bathroom, and in the centre is the staircase leading to the living space.

The master bedroom has been tastefully decorated with a luxurious king size bed and large glass doors leading to the rear patio, which gives the bedroom lots of natural light. There is also an en-suite with a shower.

The twin room is a fun and pretty bedroom with two single wrought iron style beds. There is also a large glass door leading to the courtyard. Next to the bedroom is the family bathroom with bath and shower.

Upstairs is the open plan living space, with high ceilings and large windows, making a light and bright space to relax or entertain. The neat and functional kitchen is kitted out with everything you need to cook, and the dining space seats 4 to eat together inside.

Exterior

We are located on Station Road, just along from Caffa Mill. This is a great spot for anyone wanting to launch kayaks or boats! Around Caffa Mill are a selection of shops and cafes, and the very centre of Fowey is less than a ten minute walk along the river.

We have private parking for one car, and Caffa Mill also has a public car park run by Cornwall Council.
From the parking space, head down the steps and onto the first of our two outside spaces with dining furniture, perfect for morning coffee.

If you enjoy eating alfresco, you can head outside to the spacious private rear patio and make the most of the outside dining furniture! We also have a secure utility room leading off from the courtyard, a great safe space for any bikes you may have. There is also access to a communal garden area that is shared with the rest of Old Station Master's House.

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.

Shelley (AirBnB) "What a lovely place! Clean and tastefully decorated throughout. Easy check in and short walk into Fowey. On our arrival we popped into the bakery and deli to stock up for dinner to go with the lovely welcome surprise of presecco and crisps. Having a parking space and being so close to the town is definitely an advantage, so no need to drive. We would stay again if we return to the area."

Rachel (AirBnB) "Fantastic Airbnb! Beautifully decorated, very comfortable- bigger than anticipated! The parking is so handy and it’s fantastic to be able to walk into Fowey so easily without having to go up and down hills (handy for pregnant me!). Also the hosts were great at communicating - very easy to get hold of. Highly recommend."

Charlotte (AirBnB) "The property is absolutely beautiful - a stunning conversion of a character building with high-end furnishings and equipment - and spotlessly clean. The photos don't do it justice! Communication from Fowey Homes was also great. I would highly recommend to all visitors."

Stuart (AirBnB) "Super place to stay for Fowey visit. Nice short walk into the town centre but a couple of lovely cafe’s en-route so very handy for first thing in the morning! Accommodation is gorgeous, super clean & tidy but still very cosy. Was nice & warm when we arrived and I can imagine it’s perfect for all year round. A great find and we’ve saved it for future visits!"

Alex (AirBnB) "This is wonderful property with high quality fixtures and fittings. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything that we needed. The bathroom and en-suite were great. Parking in Fowey is always tricky so it was fantastic to have a private parking space. The location was great, an easy walk in to the centre but just outside the narrow one way streets. Would definitely stay again"

Peter (TripAdvisor) "No 2 Old Station Masters House is a great base for exploring the River Fowey area, it is beautifully decorated and has everything you could possibly need for your holiday. It is a short walk into Fowey town centre where the cafes and shops are located or carry on further to Readymoney Cove. Just a few steps away the Bodinnick Ferry crosses the Fowey to the opposite bank where you can start the Hall Walk. Great apartment, comfortable and well appointed, amazing rainfall shower."

Jenny (AirBnB) "We enjoyed a lovely holiday at the Old Station Masters House, in spite of the wet weather, with lots of beautiful walks nearby. No 2 is a superb apartment, very light and well designed, fitted out with very modern quality furniture and finishings. Smart TVs in the bedrooms as well as the sitting area were appreciated, as well as the large shower in the ensuite bathroom with strong water pressure. The kitchen has everything we needed. We were very comfortable there. Being able to park at the apartment is a blessing in Fowey. We particularly enjoyed being so close to the Bodinnick ferry, with a super Italian coffee shop and other outlets opposite. It is just an easy 5-10 minute walk into Fowey, with lots of places to eat and shops to browse. Fowey Homes sent us all the details we needed to access the keys well in advance of our stay, and have been very responsive throughout."
