With stunning sea and harbour views this top floor apartment is a popular holiday choice. Situated high up in an impressive Edwardian house, Moonrakers is a generous self-contained property just yards from the harbour's edge. The sandy beach at Readymoney Cove is a few minutes' walk away and it is a 10 minute stroll into the centre of Fowey to visit the many small, independent shops, cafes, inns and restaurants. It's all about the water in Fowey and visitors can take advantage of the many maritime activities on offer such as kayaking, fishing, boat trips and river cruising. There are also numerous scenic walking and cycling routes in the area. The world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are both less than 30 minutes' drive away.
The real draw for Moonrakers is the spacious sitting room and picture window which looks over the harbour to Polruan and out across the sea. There is one bedroom, a good-sized kitchen and dining table (with an angular view of the harbour) and a bathroom. Guests are welcome to use the sheltered lawn at the rear of the property.

If you haven't yet discovered Fowey, you've got a treat in store. Full of multicoloured cottages, perched on the hillsides leading down to the sea, this little fishing town has lots to tempt visitors.
There is an entrancing collection of unique local shops and boutiques, along with harbourside cafes, pubs which will give you a hearty welcome and a good atmosphere, and restaurants offering tempting local produce. If you want a unique insight into the local species in these waters, you could visit Fowey Aquarium, whose residents include specimens brought in by local fishermen.
If you're a fan of Daphne du Maurier, you may want to visit the Literary Centre, which gives information and exhibits about the author and her life and work. There is also the Fowey Festival of Words and Music, held in May, in which du Maurier, and many other authors, artists and musicians, are celebrated. Another great spectacle is the Fowey Royal Regatta, held in August.
Fowey lies within one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall, and the backdrop of the surrounding countryside, with its tidal creeks, rolling fields and rugged cliffs, will make you want to return here again and again.
Thanks so much for the lovely hamper. It was a fantastic surprise and we really enjoyed it. We had a lovely holiday. The property is comfortable and pleasant, with a fabulous view.Mrs J Mounsey - 28th March 2016
