About Sarah Bennett
My husband and I live in Warwickshire with our two children. I have been going to Fowey since meeting my husband, when we worked together and he sold me a holiday in River Views (which his parents then owned)! We have been regular visitors to Fowey ever since, whether it's the excitement of Regatta week or a quieter break in the winter months. Our children have now come to love Fowey and enjoy the simple pleasures of playing on the beach, rock-pooling and crabbing. We all love to get on the water by kayak or boat and enjoy exploring the river. We also enjoy walking around the area, exploring the beautiful Cornish coastline. And of course, whilst in Fowey, a cream tea in our favourite cafe is a must!
Sarah Bennett purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Sarah Bennett chose Fowey
My husbands parents put River Views on the market and we thought this would be a great opportunity to keep it in the family (it was built in 1892 by my husbands Great-great-grandfather). The lounge was originally my husbands bedroom when he was growing up! It is also a base that we hope our children, and their children can use for many generations. Fowey is a very special town, that has become much more fashionable in recent years (with a few famous residents now). It has still retained it's original charm with narrow winding streets and river life. We love to watch all the boats on the river, we think River Views has the best spot in town with activity all year long.
What makes this Apartment unique
River Views is just 5 minutes walk from the town centre, just far enough away as to not be disturbed by the revellers in the summer months. But still with in easy reach of the many fine restaurants, pubs and shops. River Views is close to two car-parks, which is great, as parking is at a premium in Fowey (not really being designed for cars!). The views are amazing, you can't help but relax watching the life on the river! We hope all our guests get as much pleasure from River Views as we have over the years.

Beautiful home, beautiful town
We stayed here for a weekend for my partners significant birthday and enjoyed every minute.
The apartment was clean, warm and homely. We spent a lot of time just watching the ferry cross and watching the water world go by.
It's close to all shops, restaurants and amenities. Parking the car in the little car park just down the road was simple.
Contact with Sarah was easy and Fowey was a little town with a big heart.
We will definitely stay at Riverviews again.
our weekend was very special.
Fantastic location And jjust what we needed.
Excellent location. Lovely views and close to town centre and start of the Hall Walk.
Very comfortable and quiet location. Had everything you need but we ate out most of the time
Amazing location, great wee place for a holiday. Excellent communication by Sarah.
We had a great family break in Fowey. The house was perfect for our first trip to Cornwall. Our girls 5&7 loved the books and games available and we thoroughly enjoyed being by the river.
There are a good couple of flights of stairs to get luggage up which is worth knowing particularly with smaller kids. The kitchen is cute with sloping roof so be careful if you are tall! The only other wee thing is that we couldn't see any salt, pepper or soap in bathroom so make sure you bring your own!
Overall lovely stay thank you.
Enchanting riverside stay!
We had a wonderful week here at the end of September. The apartment was so full of light, that even when it rained one day, it was a pleasure to sit in and watch all the comings and goings on the river. The stylish decor and scrupulously clean accommodation added to the enjoyment of our stay. The location was also perfect, a short walk into the heart of Fowey with its wide range of restaurants and good pubs. We particularly enjoyed dining at the Old Quay House and sipping an aperitif on the terrace.
There were many great walks nearby across the headland and with stunning views of the river. The walk to Golant was one of the best with lunch on the terrace of the Cormorant hotel being a highlight.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone and will definitely return.

Coast/Beach: Fowey River Views is on the Waters Edge. At low tide you are about 1 metre from the beach! The largest beach in Fowey is Readymoney Cove, with a permanent swimming raft it's great fun for all the family. Whitehouse beach disappears completely at high tide, but is a little quieter than Readymoney, with a children's paddling pool in the summer months. More 'hidden' beaches are detailed in the guide in the apartment! Travel: You can also catch a train to Par (3 miles away) or St Austell (7 miles) or fly to Newquay airport (20 miles away). You will find a car is useful for exploring the wider area. Fowey River Views is located on Passage Street. To access by car you will need to drive through the town, we recommend you do this only for loading and unloading as the town has very narrow streets. Parking is available just 300 yards down the road at Old Station Yard Car Park from around £4/day. Distances: River Views is only 6 miles from the world renowned Eden Project. There is much to do in the area - the magnificent Lanhydrock House (National Trust) is only 7 miles away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are 15 miles away. Padstow, Falmouth and St. Ives are within easy reach for a day out, if you fancy exploring further afield. Further Details: Fowey offers some very special events including the Daphne Du Maurier festival in May and Fowey Royal Regatta Week in August. There are some fine walks in the area that take in the fantastic views around the Cornish coast line. We like to take the car ferry to Bodinnick then walk along Hall walk to Polruan further down the river returning by passenger Ferry. Boats and kayaks (either guided tours or self-drive) are available for hire in Fowey harbour in the summer months.
