Marmaduke is a stylish cottage in a central position, close to the town centre and main car park. Set over 3 floors, the house is spacious and makes for a comfortable home. The open plan living space is perfect for everyone to cook, relax, and spend time together. The top floor master bedroom enjoys stunning views over the town and river, taking in the church and Place House too. There is a cosy courtyard to the rear of the cottage, and the front has a terrace overlooking Lostwithiel street.

As you enter the cottage you step from a hallway into the stylish, spacious, open plan living area. The large bay window lets in lots of light during the summer and the fire place is great for cosy winter nights.
The dining area comfortably seats 6, and the glass doors lead onto the rear courtyard to give an al-fresco feel with all the comfort of being inside.
The modern kitchen space has everything you could need for cooking and entertaining while still spending time with the rest of your group.
Leading off from the kitchen there is a utility area and then a full downstairs bathroom with shower - great for when you arrive back from a sandy beach adventure!

The first floor of the house is where you will find the family bathroom and two bedrooms. The front kingsize bedroom is decorated in yellow and blue and has views from the bed over to Place House. The rear kingsize bedroom is our pretty pink room and a good generous size.

Take the stairs up to the second floor and you will find the master kingsize bedroom. In the alcove of the dormer window we have a desk where you can enjoy the stunning views - look out over the roof tops of Fowey, down to the boats on the river, and across to the historic church and Place House. An ideal space to sit with a cuppa and take in the scene, or catch up with any work that needs to be done - it certainly won't feel much like work in your own private lookout!
Our green master bedroom also benefits from its own en-suite wc and sink and with its charming sloped roof, the bedroom remains light and airy.

The cottage was fully refurbished and redecorated to a high standard in 2023 and has brand new crisp white cotton linens throughout the bedrooms. Marmaduke retains all the charm of a Cornish cottage, but with a fresh and modern feel to truly make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.

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.

Chris (AirBnB) "As a regular visitor to Fowey, I can tell you this house is in an excellent location. Very few houses have private parking, so you have to use the main car park at the top of the town. Marmaduke is half way up the hill - so walking up back to the house from the town or up to your car from the house are both bearable. The house has been recently refurbished to a good standard, with quality appliances and furniture. With three double bedrooms, it was perfect for our party - as often one bedroom has single beds or bunks. The house has a great view of Place House - and from the dormer window on the top floor you can see the harbour. There is a bench out front where you can sit with a drink, and the Safe Harbour (Pub/Hotel) is just a few yards away. This is a perfect place to enjoy all that Fowey has to offer - which is a lot. I have travelled a lot and seen many places around the world. You will be hard pressed to find anywhere as beautiful as this harbour town - it’s magical."

Pippa (AirBnB) "Entry to the property was very easy with the key box & more relaxed as no specific arrival time needed to handover keys. Property was spotless & had all amenities required. Even had a store cupboard with a few essential items. The kitchen & bathrooms appeared brand new. The entire property was a delight. Location very central to Fowey, less than a minute to the central area & even less to a very nice pub the safe harbour. Curry night on a Thursday was fab! No parking outside the property but plenty of car parks nearby. Highly recommend getting the JustPark app, you can extend your parking times without having to leave the house! I would highly recommend this property. The communication from Fowey homes was excellent throughout the booking stage & also the updates received throughout the stay. We did not have any need to contact them during our stay as everything was perfect."

Simon (AirBnB) "We have just returned from our week's holiday at Marmaduke, in Fowey. What a wonderful home in a beautiful town. The house is perfect, it is positioned above the road giving it amazing privacy, especially when sat in the window seat or on the table outside. The road is not busy so we weren't troubled with road noise. The house is set just above the main town, just 1 minute's walk and you are in the hustle and bustle. The main car park is a 5 minute walk away. There are places outside to stop and unload so no issues on arrival or departure. The house is great, everything you need and all in perfect condition (great selection of books). I can honestly say it was one of our easiest holidays, perfect to unwind and get in the holiday mood immediately. Thank you for helping to make our break exactly what we needed."
