In the beautiful historic town of Fowey, set around a stunning harbour, Duchy Cottage is a charming 3 bedroom (two double and one twin room) property. It has been lovingly refurbished to the highest standard, with modern kitchen and bathroom and has recently been awarded Four Star Gold status from Visit England Quality and Tourism. The property also offers a sheltered courtyard, perfect for eating alfresco and capturing the Cornish sunshine. The cottage is ideal for all seasons; with a light open-plan living space, ideal for warm summer evenings, yet also having cosy sofas and gas central heating for the cooler months. Beyond the homely accommodation, the town's narrow streets provide many quality shops and galleries selling local produce and art. There are plenty of opportunities to soak up the Cornish atmosphere whether it's having a cream tea or enjoying a hearty Cornish pasty. Across the River is the village of Polruan with a regular passenger ferry running back and forth allowing you to enjoy even more coastal paths which boast the stunning Cornish Coastline. A little way up the river, there is a car ferry allowing you to access numerous attractions further afield. Duchy Cottage is a wonderful place to relax and unwind.

We had a fantastic stay at Duchy Cottage myself, husband and three children (13, 9 and 9). The cottage is so lovely and very well equipped and I love the seating area outside and the little out house was perfect for body boards and wetsuits etc, the washing machine was very useful. I have stayed in Fowey every year for many years and one thing I liked about this cottage was how easy it was to drop things off/unload in the car as there is plenty of space for turning round etc which is not always the case further down into town. It only takes five minutes at the most to walk into where the shops, restaurants etc are, perfect as you are out of it enough to have peace and quite. For us as a family the cottage worked perfectly and the bottle of prosecco and pastries where a lovely touch on arrival. See you again soon.
Lovely cottage - very well equipped
Duchy cottage is a lovely cottage which is really well equipped with everything you need. It is set up one of the many hills in Fowey which makes popping down into Fowey quite challenging for anyone with poor mobility as there is very limited parking down on the main street in Fowey. There is however a local Town bus which is very reasonable and picks up almost outside Duchy Cottages front door. The only down side to this lovely cottage is the bus stop which is right outside with buses running every day and quite frequently but this shouldn't put you off staying. It is also right next door to a lovely 'locals' pub which serves lovely food at a very reasonable price. I would definitely stay at Duchy cottage if I return to Fowey.
A beautiful cottage in a wonderful location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this comfortable,well equipped cottage. Fowey is a beautiful little town and the location of Duchy cottage is perfect.
Characterful Cottage in the Heart of Fowey
Although not overly familiar with Cornwall, we were so pleased we chose Fowey as our base. It has a small town/village atmosphere and an easy going charm. Duchy Cottage provided us with an excellent, central location and good proximity to the local bus service. The interior design of the cottage makes the very best use of space and is very tastefully furnished throughout. The beds were particularly comfortable, maximising our sense of relaxation during our stay. We found Duchy Cottage to be an immaculate holiday property, and the level of help and service provided by the owners was first class. We loved Fowey, with its shops, restaurants and beach but also enjoyed visiting attractions such as the Monkey Sanctuary, Lost Gardens of Heligan, Lanhydrock National Trust property, Flambards activity park and Maritime Museum in Falmouth. A special lunch at Rich Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Padstow was also a highlight during our holiday. We would have no hesitation in returning to Duchy Cottage or recommending it to others. Cornwall has so much to offer as a holiday destination and we fell in love with it!
