About the property

Sail Loft - A Stylish & Cosy apartment in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Tucked Away From The Main Path, Yet A Mere Minutes Walk From The Centre Of Fowey & Its Quay

A delightful two bedroomed loft apartment in the centre of Fowey. Airy & stylish with high ceilings and exposed roof timbers, the apartment provides you with a perfect 'bolt hole' in which you can relax and recharge your batteries! Sail Loft is situated in a quiet location, next to St Fimbarrus Church, yet is only a minutes walk from the fabulous shops, restaurants, bars/pubs & bustling quay. Fowey is renowned for its sailing & water activities, coastal walks, quaint streets and shops in which you could easily while away the hours. The beaches of Whitehouse and Readymoney are all within walking distance. Throughout the year there are a number of festivals and events which bring both locals and holiday makers together, from the popular festival of words and music each May, the Beer & Mussel festival in June, the famous Fowey Regatta, which runs for a week during August ... with the incredible Red Arrows putting in an appearance! For the more energetic, there is the Fowey Triathlon held in September, and to put you in the Christmas spirit there is a Christmas market at the end of the year! Theres always something to do and see, whatever time of year you choose to visit this beautiful part of Cornwall.

About Jayne Shore

We have spent many happy holidays in Cornwall, over the years, with our three boys, our family and friends. We discovered Fowey, however, only two or three years ago! Whilst travelling around Cornwall, we came across Fowey as we looked for somewhere to stay overnight .... and that was it, we loved everything about it! This year (2014) we decided to make a return weekend visit to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. When we noticed Sail Loft was for sale, we acted on impulse ... and a new adventure began!! Fowey is a friendly, warm Cornish fishing village, and the Sail Loft perfectly located, tucked away from the bustle, yet seconds from the warm welcome that awaits you! We really hope you love it as much as we do ... we think you will!

What makes this apartment unique

The Sail Loft is a lovely seaside apartment, set right in the middle of Fowey, yet it is tucked away, and just a moments stroll from the fabulous Butchers, deli and many beautiful shops, cafes & restaurants that this bustling fishing village boasts. Once you have parked your car, there really is no need for you to use it again until you have to say 'goodbye 'til next time'. There are beautiful coastal walks, boat trips, fishing trips, beaches, restaurants, bars/pubs and fabulous cafes catering for all tastes. There are small high street shops, such as Fatface, Seasalt and Boots, as well as many individual shops selling beautiful and unusual gifts and crafts, all well worth a visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful apartment, its tucked away but in the middle of everything ! Even when we arrived we did have a problem finding it but a phone call to jayne and she guided us straight to it . Fowey is a fantastic place, our only downfall was that three days wasn't long enough. Our hosts were brilliant explaining everything about the apartment , places to go and places to eat .

Property right on the doorstep of the lovely town and port. Lots of shops to explore. Beach a 10 min walk away. The loft is gorgeous and so well equipped. Washer dryer and dishwasher. A real home from home.

Fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

The Sail Loft was bigger than we thought it would be and perfect for our family of 4 with an 8 and 10 year old. It was spotless and really well stocked with everything. The location was perfect and we felt right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Fowey. The very steep walk to the car park kept us fit, but this was a small price to pay for being in such a great location. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday here, the apartment is in a perfect location close to everything in Fowey and only two minutes from the quayside!. There is everything that you could want in the apartment even a welcome bottle of wine and milk and teabags!. The beds were very comfortable and the whole place is fitted out to a high standard. We would love to come back one day, thank you David and Jayne!

Lovely apartment great location

  • 4 of 5

Sail Loft was an ideal base for our week in Fowey. Well equipped and comfortable with two bathrooms (which is a must for my wife plus two daughters). Really comfy beds and a great shower in the en suite.

A wonderful short break

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful long weekend at the Sail Loft. The location is perfect with town right on your doorstep with lovely restaurants, pubs and shops including bakeries, delis and a small shop to cater for all requirements.

As others have mentioned the loft is more spacious than pictures would suggest, light and beautifully clean.

We would love to stay again on our next visit to beautiful Fowey.
