The Hideaway is a stylish contemporary apartment within the Blue Mill building, tucked away in a lovely quiet area of Fowey, just over a 5 minutes walk from the centre of the town.

Its open plan living space has a bright, open feel thanks to wall to ceiling windows (which also boast a view out to the river!). The kitchen is superbly fitted with everything you'd need to relax comfortably in a home from home, or to wine, dine and entertain if the mood takes you. The dining area comfortably seats 4. The master bedroom is a fantastic tranquil space to relax and unwind, and the smaller bedroom is a sweet and cosy retreat. The bathroom is a stylish and fun space allowing you to relax in the hideaway bath ...The Hideaway is a stylish contemporary apartment within the Blue Mill building, tucked away in a lovely quiet area of Fowey, just over a 5 minutes walk from the centre of the town.

The bathroom is a stylish and fun space allowing you to relax in the hideaway bath or snap a perfect selfie in the large mirror! The apartment offers quiet sanctuary on the 3rd floor of Blue Mill, and is directly opposite the Caffa Mill car park, very handy in Fowey where parking is often very tricky. Sleeping arrangements Bedroom 1: Double Bedroom (5ft Double bed) Bedroom 2: Small Double Bedroom (4ft Double bed) Interior layout The Hideaway is on the 3rd floor of Blue Mill. The private entrance on the 3rd floor leads into a hallway, with Bedroom 2, Bathroom, and Master Bedroom opening to the left-hand side. The hallway then leads into the open plan space with kitchen, dining and lounge area. There is a balcony with table and chairs to the rear of the living area. Our guide To Fowey You certainly won’t go hungry while you’re on holiday in Fowey – these are our favourite places to eat out! - Evening Meals: The Quay House Hotel, Fowey Harbour Hotel and King of Prussia - Relaxed and Family Friendly Dining: Sam’s, The Galleon and Havaeners - Cafés, Lunch and Light Bites: Brown Sugar, Pinky Murphy, The Lifebuoy Café and The Cornish Bakery - Tea Rooms: The Dwelling House and The Well House - International: Pintxo, Sunny Spice and Bufala -Take Home Treats: Haveners Fish & Chips, Kittows Deli and Game of Cones SHOPPING There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey such as Joules, Fat Face, Mountain Warehouse and Seasalt. The real charm of the town lies in the wide range of boutique independent shops. You can spend hours browsing for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children’s toys and don't forget the old-fashioned sweet shop! Fowey has top-quality bakeries where you can find bread, rolls, pasties, cakes and treats. There may be no large supermarket, but with two local convenience stores and a Boots, you'll find everything you need. There is a Co-op within a 10 minute drive, while Asda, Tesco and Lidl are all 7 miles or so from Fowey. All the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well to the apartment. THINGS TO SEE & DO Fowey is an estuary river town, so the obvious thing to do is spend a day messing about on the water! There are many kayak, canoe, and boat hire centres that go from both Quays. If you don’t have the strongest sea legs, then why not just take the passenger ferry over to Polruan for an afternoon! If you fancy going a little further, you continue round to Mevagissey too. In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th century church in the centre of the town and a 15th century fort, St. Catherine’s Castle, on the edge of the estuary. The closest beach on the west side of town is Readymoney Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming. A swimming platform is moored off the beach during the summer months. There is also a fabulous little shop for all your seaside needs. However, no dogs are allowed between Easter and October. There is a secret sea-pool hidden away at Whitehouse Pier which is perfect for a refreshing paddle while looking out over the estuary. It can only be found at certain times, so check those tide times! Within a 5/10-minute drive, you can be at Polkerris (our favourite!), Polridmouth, or Par Sands, and within a half hour drive you’ll find Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan or Mevagissey.

Lovely week in fowey
We really enjoyed our week. I’ve been to for a for many years now. The property we stayed in was in a perfect location. Visit the restaurant Sam’s in town for fabulous food but even better cocktails try their cocktail called Samba .

The perfect location
We really enjoyed our visit to Fowey. Even in the off season there was still plenty to see and do in the area and lots of choice for coffee breaks, dining and relaxing. The Hideaway was well presented, wonderfully clean and comfortable. The top floor views of the river were pretty and it was nice to take the lift with tired legs at the end of the day. The best thing is it’s location as it means you don’t have to drive through Fowey centre to get to it yet it’s a nice short (and flat) walk into the centre of everything. Would stay again!

How to get there
Parking The Hideaway does not have allocated private parking, but is directly opposite the Caffa Mill car park which is run by Cornwall Council. Hourly, daily, weekly and rover passes can be obtained in advance on their website or you can use the Just Park ‘app’ from your mobile device . There is also a free car park opposite squire’s field on Park Road. There are no allocated spaces and can fill up quickly during the summer weeks. During the winter (Oct 1st – Apr 30th) there is a 2-hour short-stay car park on the town quay. There is also a short stay car park all year round at Albert Quay. The nearest train is Par Station, which has direct services from London Paddington and beyond. It's then a 10 minute taxi trip into Fowey. The main bus stop in Fowey can be found outside the Safe Harbour pub, and the 24 & 25 First Kernow services stop here. There is also a fabulous bus stop at the end of Lankelly Lane, which has a yearly make-over by the people of Fowey to give a real enjoyable space while waiting for the bus. Fowey also has its own town bus service which picks up from outside the church and runs to the car parks and some other destinations on request. The closest airport is Newquay, which is around 30 minute away by car.
