Excellent views with some compromises
Situated at the foot of a hill looking over the Fowey to Bodinnick Ferry, this property has stunning views over the river to Fowey. The property is very well equipped and stocked with everything you would need for a holiday in this part of Cornwall, even a welcome ‘Snack and Coffee’ pack. It’s an ‘upside down’ property taking advantage of the views, and we felt that upstairs it was far better than the bedrooms down stairs. We also felt that it could have been cleaner and were a little disappointed with cobwebs etc. Especially In the bedrooms and and even the en-suite shower. Plus needing a lick of paint in places. The en- suite bedroom is not the best of rooms, cramped toilet and shower (which could have been cleaner and needs an update) site photos do not show this. The further double room is by far the better of the 3 if you can compromise by using the main shower room. Well fitted shower room with electric shower. The Achilles heal is parking. With the Pub/hotel next door in full swing in the summer you are going to be very lucky to park anywhere near the property. There is a car park up the steep hill on one side, a long arduous walk, and up the even steeper and longer hill into the village of Bodinnick itself an even harder walk. If you go into Fowey for the evening, the last Ferry back is 8.45 pm. So late night dinner there is out unless you take the car over, find somewhere to park, and drive all the way around the estuary to come home. So, a great location for views, with all the equipment you would ever need for a holiday, but there has to be compromises.

Tabs by the ferry...luxury
This cottage is by the ferry in Bodinick. . the view is a stunner of the river out to the sea with quant old houses on the opposite side. the house is excellent , big rooms , style beautiful , Views from inside the house and from the balcony. The amenities are plentiful . and of good quality. two of us stayed during September. three bedrooms and plenty of space for 6 people. kitchen is fully equipped. bed mattresses are sooo comfortable. Would certainly visit again No need for a car , plenty of ferry crossings every few minutes passenger or car or even a friendly boatman will take you across.
