About Anne and John Coghlan

We fell in love with Fowey after a weekend visit in 2001. When exploring Fowey we walked along Harbour View and dreamed of someday owning a house there. As you do, we came home and searched estate agents and 3 Harbour View was for sale but under offer. Some things are meant to be. That offer fell through and the rest is history.

3 Harbour View is the perfect holiday house for our family. We love coming down to Fowey and never tire of the view of the harbour. We have 3 children who are now in their late teens and who have loved growing up with regular holidays here.

We have rented out the house since we bought it via various agencies but joined Owners Direct in 2014.

Anne and John Coghlan purchased this house in 2001

Why Anne and John Coghlan chose Newquay & St Austell

We love Fowey. It is a town that has a great atmosphere regardless of the season. There is always a lot to do, even if it is just sitting in the window watching the world go by! Fowey has great food shops and the walking in the area is fabulous. We often come down to Fowey and don't move our car for a week.

You can join the coastal path west to Polkerris, or take the ferry across to Polruan and take the coast path east towards Polperro and Looe, via the beautiful unspoilt beach at Lantic bay. Also try the 'Hall Walk' all around Fowey's beautiful natural harbour and Pont Pill estuary.

Well appointed comfortable property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous mother-daughter break at 3 Harbour View. The views are spectacular and the house contains everything you need for some time away and is very homely (and clean!). The location is great, just a short hill climb from town followed by three sets of steps up to Harbour View. I did a fish and chip run in 3 minutes! Fowey truly is a joy, one of my favourite places, and the house topped it. Thank you.

A fantastic stay with a view!!

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest cottage we've stayed in Fowey with probably the best view in the town. Communication with owners was prompt and superb. Central and not too far From the beach at readymoney, The house itself was clean, very well equipped and great for couples or families, loved sitting in the bay window with a glass of wine in the evenings, bottle of wine, milk and teabags was a nice touch particularly after a long drive. we've been coming to Fowey for over 10 years, this property will be our first port of call for future bookings..... only hope it's available!!

Fabulous holiday home with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as it had been described, but still exceeded expectations. The welcome pack was gratefully received, and thanks to the previous reviewers for encouraging us not to bring the Range Rover! The house was lovely and clean, extremely well equipped and in a great position. I enjoyed sitting in the bay window in the sunshine reading my book and looking out at the boats.The cot bed and high chair had been left ready as requested, and all my communications with Anne prior to our stay were dealt with promptly. We enjoyed a lively meal at Sam's for a birthday party, and one day went off to Newquay for some surfing (45 minute drive). The lovely new bakery is fabulous, and the owner made me a fabulous cake with only two days notice. Would highly recommend Harbour View to others, we've stayed in many holiday homes in Fowey over the years but this was the best.

Marvellous.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of six adults staying in Fowey for three nights. The house was spacious enough to accommodate us all very comfortably. The open plan area downstairs was great for communal living. The kitchen was was extremely well equipped and big enough for two or three people to use at the same time. The bedrooms were all ideal, lovely linen on the beds (which is quite important in our view) and quality towels were provided. Two large bathrooms meant that no one was ever waiting for ablutions or evacuations! The house was extremely clean and the welcome bottle of wine provided was a really nice gesture. The information and directions that Anne provided were detailed and thorough aiding a smooth arrival. The car park space outside is handy although I should mention ( as have others) the very narrow road that leads up to the house...if you're in a van don't try it ( I left mine in the main car park) but for a car and a competent driver it's no problem. The house has a beautiful view of the harbour and everything in Fowey that you need to experience is in walking distance. This house was ideal for a wonderful stay in Fowey.

This cottage is the best.absolutely fully equipped,spotlessly clean and right in the middle of Fowey.I Have a Mini Cooper and parked at the cottage.I may not have tried it in a really large car although other cars seemed to manage ok.I have stayed in several Cornish cottages but this one is number one.

Location wonderful...the view across the river is amazing. We'll equipped, clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was there and communication with the owners was easy from booking to leaving. We have recommended This house to our friends and will definitely be returning. Celebrating our daughters 30th in Fowey was full of lovely memories.
