About Ali Siddall
Pete and I moved to Fowey in 2001 after we fell in love with it when we sailed here. We renovated Smugglers Cottage ourselves and wanted to make it a real home from home. We handle the bookings and management of the cleaning and maintenance ourselves with the help of our lovely housekeeper Celene. We both love Fowey and can often be seen out on the water in "Little Gem" our fishing boat.
Ali Siddall purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Ali Siddall chose Fowey
When we first looked at Smugglers Cottage it was in a sorry state and the garden was overgrown, but we fell in love with the views and magical feeling it had. We really enjoyed renovating it and bringing it back to life. Loving how you can just sit on the terrace and watch the boats go by. Or chill by the fire with a glass of wine. The views are really special from the both inside and out.

Smugglers Cottage is a very clean, warm, up to date, compact property It has everything you need and the communication with Ali was excellent Would definitely recommend as a holiday let
Everything was fantastic, from booking, arriving, facilities and location. Will definitely be back!
Loved this cosy cottage. Just had to work out parking carefully as hill pretty steep
The week went too quickly but so peaceful
Perfect accommodation in a perfect location
From the very beginning the whole process was very smooth and when we arrived at the accommodation we were overjoyed to see how well it matched the description and our expectations. Beautifully clean, very well appointed with great views over the water. Close to the car park and albeit a steep walk to and from the town and harbour that was to be expected and kept us fit. We fell in love with Fowey and the accommodation. We will want to return
Great cottage, centrally located for parking and shops, all you need is stamina to get up the hills.
Lovely cottage, fantastic view of The Place, church tower and river. Loved the garden for relaxing, having a cup of tea or something stronger and enjoying the views. Comfortable beds, great bathroom and kitchen area, very handy having a downstairs loo as well. Clean, cosy, nicely decorated. The only thing that let it down for me was that I found the sofas uncomfortable so couldn't spend much time relaxing watching any telly. There was a large car park just up the hill, the town with its shops, pubs, restaurants and fish and chip shop was a few minutes downhill, it took a little longer to get back up the hill but by the end of the week it was getting easier. Great location for getting to other places of interest, would recommend making the effort to go to a play at the Minak Theatre. I loved Lanhydrock (NT), the Eden Project is near by and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are always worth a visit. Being based in Fowey made it a fabulous holiday and I hope to return soon.
Smugglers Cottage is a 10 mins walk to the coast path and Readymoney Cove. Other beaches can be walked to in about 25 minutes or there are several within a 30 minute car drive. The North Coast Beaches are approx 40 minutes away by car.
Fowey Royal Regatta week is third week in August. During the week you can watch the fireworks and the Red Arrows from the patio, or enjoy the entertainment on the Quay each evening. There is entertainment for children including the crab catching competition and the Giant Pasty! On the river you can see the Falmouth Working boats racing together with the local Troy and Fowey river fleet.
