Perfect location and accommodation!
Superb location overlooking the River Fowey. Very close to shops and amenities and a short walk to the beautiful Readymoney beach. Within easy reach of nearby attractions such as the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Spacious enough for our family of four. Nicely decorated and amazing views from the balcony! Apartment contains everything you would need. Owner very helpful and on hand if needed. Can’t fault and would love to return someday.

Amazing location, very comfortable stay.
We always wanted to stay in Fowey, having holidayed in Cornwall for many years. River Views didn't disappoint. Very comfortable stay, although mind your head in the kitchen! Beautifully decorated, modern and clean. Well appointed with everything you could possibly need for a great holiday.

Ferienwohnung mit wunderschönem Ausblick
Die Ferienwohnung ist auf zwei Etagen, unten ein Schlafzimmer und Eingangsbereich, oben ein weiteres Schlafzimmer, Küche, Bad und Wohnzimmer. Reichlich Platz für 4 Personen, alles vorhanden, was man braucht, Spülmaschine und Waschmaschine machen das Urlaubsleben noch etwas leichter. Highlight ist der Blick aus Küchen- und Wohnzimmerfenster auf den Fowey River und das Ferryside, in dem Daphne du Maurier einige Jahre gelebt hat.

Perfect apartment with stunning river views
Took my 2 kids (8 & 4) for a few days exploring on the south Cornwall coast. Love the laid back friendliness of Fowey and the apartment is well kitted out with everything you need. Great day at the Eden project and a stunning meal at Sam's On The Beach. Hope to return again!

Thanks for your kind feedback - we are committed to providing an excellent holiday base for our guests. We are always striving to improve River Views further to exceed our guests expectations, whether it's an extra shelf in the oven, or a juliet balcony!

Superbly equipped base to explore wonderful Fowey
River Views is a very well equipped and comfortable apartment,the views from the balcony are superb,it was very relaxing to see the comings and goings on the river.There are many places to explore nearby, Hill walk ,starting in Bodinnick was well worth doing,the beach at Lantic bay was special,and Fowey is a delight. We can recommend Pinkey Murphys and the Dwelling House for Coffee and Cake,and Quay bakery is a must for fresh bread each morning.. We have been taking our holidays in South East Cornwall for nearly 40 years and I can honestly say our time at River Views was one of the best, we will definitely be returning very soon.

We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay Keith, and thanks for the recommendations, which we know our guests love to read. We also love the Quay Bakery, especially the Monday muffin of the day 'Chocolate and Ginger'! We're especially pleased you consider River Views one of your best places to stay in south east Cornwall. We've worked hard over the years to make it special and it makes our day to hear guests love it as much as we do. We'd love to welcome you back sometime soon!

Beautifully clean and quiet retreat but close to centre of Fowey
This is a well looked after and clean apartment on the first and second floor of a well located house, The apartment is small but well designed. The owner is very happy to answer any queries and has provided lots of thoughtful details e.g plenty of good towels , a picnic rug , an umbrella and various cooking dishes and equipment. The view from the julliet balcony is constantly changing and its a great place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening. Although we did not need them there are also lovely things provided for children. All in all relaxing and lovely place to stay.

A Room with a View
We had a wonderful weeks stay at Fowey River Views. The flat is on the top two floors and sleeps four. It has all you need from a well appointed kitchen thru to beach towels but mind your head in the upper rooms. The juliet balcony provides fine views across to the Bodinnick Ferry landing point and down river towards the harbour mouth. It's fascinating watching the varied crafts going up and down the river, particularly the occasional cargo ships. What with wall to wall sunshine and the excellent food and atmosphere at Sam's restaurant, 5 minutes walk away in the town centre, we could not fail to enjoy our holiday.

Thanks for your kind review, we have just returned from River Views ourselves and had a fab week. We have a plan re-arrange the kitchen to make more use of the head height in the future.

A little piece of heaven ... ...
Lovely apartment, fresh, clean, modern comfortable furnishings. Great view and convenient location, owners are lovely to deal with too. Lovely local restaurants and visitor attractions. Only downside for some would be that the accommodation is accessed up a flight of internal stairs but they are carpeted, not steep and the staircase is wide too.

Thanks for your kinds words - we try to think 'what do we like when renting a holiday home' and include everything we can think of. We've also had some really useful feedback over the past few years and implemented where possible (even the fench doors & Juliet balcony!)!. Good point about the stairs, (we mention this on our website) some elderly may struggle depending on their fitness(!), it is however family friendly with a stair gate etc.

About the neighbourhood
Fowey offers some very special events including the Daphne Du Maurier festival in May, Fowey Royal Regatta Week in August and the Christmas Market in December. Fowey has attracted many artistic types over the years from Daphne Du Maurier and Kenneth Grahame, who drew inspiration from the River Fowey for Wind in the Willows,to our more recent stars of TV stage!The largest beach in Fowey is Readymoney Cove, with a summer swimming raft is great fun for all the family. Whitehouse beach disappears completely at high tide, but is a little quieter than Readymoney, with a childrens paddling pool in the summer months. A short drive (or 3 mile walk) is Polkerris Beach, voted #1 beach in Cornwall. Crabbing and rock pooling are always great fun too!There are some fine walks in the area that take in the fantastic views around the Cornish coast line. We like to take the car ferry to Bodinnick then walk along Hall walk to Polruan further down the river returning to Fowey by passenger Ferry.The Fowey to Mevagissey ferry runs from May through September and offers a really good day out, either to Mevagissey or via Mevagissey to Heligan Gardens, along with the fast, fun and scenic 35 minute boat ride. The trip is across open sea - so can be weather dependent - and provides an opportunity, if you are lucky, to see dolphins, basking sharks and diving gannetsBoats and kayaks are available for hire in Fowey harbour in the summer months.
Getting around
We are 3 miles from Par train station (there is a bus from Par to Fowey, but we recommend a taxi as the bus doesn't go through the narrow streets). We are 20 miles from Newquay airport (which has hire car facilities).
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Fowey River Views is located on Passage Street. To access by car you will need to drive through the town, we recommend you do this only for loading and unloading as the town has very narrow streets. As you enter Fowey, follow the hill to the bottom towards the town centre (the road becomes narrow and one-way), and you will reach the Ship Inn where the road bends to the left, drive past the shops and up a small steep hill near the Post Office. Keep going past the Lifeboat shop and 100 yards on the right is the entrance to Fowey River Views (If you pass a road that disappears into the river you have gone too far!). For those with satellite navigation the postcode is: PL23 1DE. You can also catch a train to Par (3 miles away) or St Austell (7 miles away) or fly to Newquay airport (20 miles away).
