About Chris Edleston
I live in the the main house adjoining the apartment, with my wife Carol. The house was originally built in the 1920s by my great grandfather and when you see the house it is not difficult to see why the house has never left the family! We moved back to the house following the death of my father, 5 years ago. We absolutely love living in Fowey, it truly is a wonderful place. The renovation of the house and apartment has been a labour of love. We spend our time boating and walking and enjoying community life in Fowey. We have a good knowledge of the area which we would be happy to share with you. We are keen to ensure that our guests grow to love Fowey life as we have done over the years.
Chris Edleston purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Chris Edleston chose Fowey
We were living on the North Yorks Moors on a small farm when we had the opportunity to buy the remainder of the house. My wife and I were stood looking at the view over Readymoney and the sea and we knew that there was no way in which we could let our family heirloom go. We left our life in Yorkshire and have never had a moment of regret. Looking from the house you can see the Fowey River estuary, the sea, Readymoney beach and the light reflecting on Covington Woods - it is glorious. We launch our kayak from the beach, stroll along the stunning cliff tops, have barbeques on the beach and sail around the creeks and inlets which are so picturesque. Fowey is a very sociable place and we have many friends. The local church is very active and welcoming.
What makes this Apartment unique
Whether you like isolation or socialising, nothing is far from our home. We can easily leave our car parked all week and have a great time in and around Fowey. The apartment 'Beach View' could also be called sea view, wood view or even estuary view - the choice is yours! Most properties in the traditional town of Fowey have many steps and challenging access. With onsite parking and few steps our apartment is perfect for those with limited mobility. Living in a prime residential area we do not have the noise associated with close proximity to pubs and restaurants. We can hear the sounds of laughter from the beach, and the waves on the shore as we drift off to sleep - it is a lovely place to be!

The perfect spot in Cornwall
Such a beautiful area of Cornwall and close to all amenities. The apartment did not disappoint in any way and the incredible view of the cove was the cherry on the cake. Carol and Chris were very kind and welcoming hosts. Anyone who stays here will not regret it.
Excellent property and location
Excellent property and location. Stunning views from balcony. We liked that you do not have to use the car everyday as you can walk to the beach, coastal path, ferries and pubs/restaurants.
Decent size, well equipped, very good condition apartment. Limited outdoor space but close to Readymoney Cove. Free use of kayak was a bonus. Carol and Chris were v nice, discreet but available as soon as we needed anything.
I have used Homeaway many timesand in different parts of the world. This was by far the best. A friend and I stayed for 4 nights and could not fault it. From our welcome, to the high standard of accommodation to the fabulous location. Having off road parking was a real bonus. The view from the balcony across the mouth of the estuary was wonderful
We stayed in Fowey as we wanted to visit The Lost Gardens of Helagon and The Eden Project. Both within easy reach by car. However we could just as happily stayed around Fowey and explored the area on foot. A walk around the headland proved a real highlight for us!
We found great eating places and easy access to supermarkets.
Hopefully we will return !
