Full description

A TRADITIONAL 3 BEDROOM CORNISH COTTAGE, POSITIONED IN THE HEART OF THE VILLAGE, WITH LOVELY VIEWS FROM THE UPPER FLOOR. Owned by its present owners as a much loved second home for over 35 years, the cottage is now run as a holiday let.

Location - Polruan is a small village on the eastern side of the harbour, directly opposite the town of Fowey. This picturesque village benefits from two pubs, a small supermarket, a tea room, church, general store, fire station and primary school. The most direct vehicular access to Fowey is via the car ferry from nearby Bodinnick but there is also a pedestrian ferry crossing directly from the village itself. The River Fowey is renowned for its safe deep water anchorage and excellent sailing. The natural harbour at the mouth of the river is a charming and picturesque inlet, extending about six miles inland to Lostwithiel. In August the harbour is the setting of the Royal Regatta one of the country's finest.

Fowey is one of Cornwall's most historic and unspoilt seaport towns and its amenities include a great choice of seafood restaurants, pubs, antique shops, galleries, hospital and primary and secondary schooling. The town still benefits from, and celebrates, its associations with Daphne du Maurier and Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch (Foweys Troytown in his novels).

The world famous Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both close by with St Catherine's Castle (an English Heritage property) one of Henry VIII's coastal fortifications, standing to the south of the town and Restormel Castle (also English Heritage) is upstream.

The Property - Ferry View is a pretty, traditional stone cottage, positioned centrally, less than two minutes walk from the local shops, pubs and harbour. Offering flexible accommodation on three floors, the property has, on the ground floor, a lovely open plan living area with multi fuel stove set into an attractive natural stone fireplace, dining area, and a modern, well fitted kitchen for everyday needs, including built-in washer/drier and fridge.

On the first floor, there is a generous sized double bedroom with wardrobes to either side of the bed and a large, south facing, window to the front offering glimpses of the harbour. Also on this floor, there is a further single bedroom, with a large window looking into the courtyard, together with a well fitted shower room.

Stairs lead up from the landing to a beautiful, bright and spacious room on the second floor, currently used as a second sitting room, but could equally be used as a third bedroom. From this room there are gorgeous, wide views from two dormer windows, on the one side across the village and over the harbour to the harbour entrance and, on the other side, upriver past Fowey to Bodinnick and beyond.

Outside - The property is normally accessed from the rear, via a shared pedestrian gate (shared with 1 East Hill), which opens to a paved courtyard, with small patio area. There is also a small outhouse, useful for storage. Entry to the property from the courtyard is into the kitchen area. There is also a front door which opens from the sitting room directly on to East Hill.
