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.
The Quay Bakery in Fowey was the best we have found. I usually make all my own bread and it was marvelous not to have to resort to eating quickly made shop bread on holiday. If you walk to Polperro there is an amazing locally run bus service to bring you back.Mrs Patricia Coughlan - 4th June 2018
It's a lovely, spacious property with a fabulous view, well worth the journey up the steps! The parking space is a great feature too. Thank you for a lovely holiday.Mrs Jane Mounsey - 26th March 2018
Lovely flat with stunning views, 66 steps up to the flat which are a mix of wood, metal and stone, these can be slippery when wet. Some of the outside lights were not working when we got there, I contacted the office and spoke to very friendly staff who arranged an electrician and sorted the problem. All the rooms were large except the bathroom, as the shower is over the bath there is limited head room. The bed was very comfortable.Mrs Sandra Topley - 16th March 2018
The Property is in a fantastic location Mr Mike Arding - 14th November 2017
Difficult to ascend the 70 steps to enter the property but worth the exercise !!! Views across from Fowey to Polruan and out to sea are stunning.mr Steve Kibler - 2nd November 2017
The property was overall excellent, much bigger than expected and perfectly located. We enjoyed our week there enormously,Mr Kevin Buchanan - 25th September 2017
We greatly enjoyed our stay at the property. The view was amazing - this is what sold the property to us. Mrs Margaret Smedley - 30th August 2017
We loved our week in 'Moonrakers' in Fowey. It's in a great location with a glorious view across the river., and even has a rare parking space if you need one. Fowey is a lovely town to explore, with good walks on the doorstep, boat trips and lots of nearby places to visit. You don't need a car if you're prepared to catch buses and boats and enjoy meeting locals on your travels.Mrs Susan Boud - 21st August 2017
