The decked balcony is the ideal spot for a morning coffee or a sundowner before dinner. If you're lucky enough to own your own small boat or dinghy; with its own mooring, a stay at Barnacles comes complete with fun on the water! The ancient town of Fowey, with its harbour, yacht clubs and historic buildings, has much to offer its visitors. Narrow streets lead to interesting shops, excellent restaurants, bistros and pubs, also allowing access to cliff tops and small sandy beaches at Readymoney Cove, plus a myriad of activities such as sea trips, boat hire and guided tours. Additional Information: A small baby in own Moses basket is welcome. Sorry, no pets. Contemporary glass, remote controlled, electric wall fire in sitting room. Pay as you go mobile phone, for emergency use. Steps leading down to the sandy water's edge with a frape to allow a mooring of a small boat.

(To purchase tickets, notice is required and charges apply - Please see below). Parking Information: Changes have been made to parking in Cornwall car parks and this affects Barnacles guests.

Romantic bolt hole- highly recommend
My husband and I booked this cottage around 11 months prior to our stay which we booked for our 12th wedding anniversary. We read a couple of negative reviews in the run-up and were worried however we feel these reviews are completely unfair. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. It is in a great location, the Wi-Fi was adequate and the cottage was equipped really well. We were lucky enough to enjoy some time out on the balcony which has the most glorious views of the working river. Such a great place to destress and unwind. The hamper was a lovely touch with local produce. In terms of the cleanliness and previous comments we are extremely fussy about where we stay and we found it to be overall quite good. We didn’t see any signs of dust as previously mentioned and certainly not to the extent but we have better things to do than to be lifting up mattresses and checking behind radiators to be honest. we would rate it 9 out of 10 for cleanliness. We absolutely intend to return at some point. in terms of what could have been better a fan in the bedroom would be useful as it got very hot despite not being particularly warm outside but other than that was perfect for us. Thank you Barnacles 😊

Beautiful place
We stayed here for a week, beautiful place with stunning views, it has everything you need, The welcome hamper was a lovely touch Downsides are: We couldn’t connect to the WiFi , Also be aware of the Caffe Mill car park as we had our tyre slashed & a ticket for parking outside a bay, once you move your car it’s difficult to get a space on your return, other than that the location is excellent within walking distance to shops, bakeries & pubs We loved sitting on the balcony watching the world go by.

DO NOT STAY HERE
On first look, it looks fantastic, beautiful view and great location but the place is DIRTY, DUSTY genuinely very unclean. I suffer from allergic reactions when around a lot of dust and the whole place, between the slats in the bed, behind the bed, under the bed, in the radiator - It was soo bad, we had to spend most the time outside of the property! Not worth £200 a night that is for sure!! We had told the cleaner or owner (whoever it was) they didn't make it easy to contact, then ignored me and said I needed to speak to customer service. After waiting a week, they have advised I should have complained another way. Honestly, save your money!!

We are very surprised by these comments as normally Barnacles gets glowing reviews and has lots of repeat guests. It is such a shame that we were not advised of the issues until the last day and then only by text. We would of course have dealt with any specific concerns, had the housekeeper been notified upon arrival.

Great little bolt hole on the water a million miles away from everyday life
This place is situated on the waters edge from where you can spy the gig teams rowing up and down, SUP paddlers and the car ferries all going about estuary life. The flat is decorated to a high standard with some lovely finishing touches and comfortable furnishings. Fowey has everything you need for a relaxed week ms break, good food, good walks and some shopping! A great place to get away from it all for a while.
