A grand Victorian house with some of the best views in Fowey from the wide bay windows and the paved terrace at the front with its glass balustrade. Set in an elevated position on the famous Esplanade a fabulous, panoramic vista stretches before you across the harbour taking in Polruan, Pont Pill, the ruins of St Catherine’s Castle and right out to sea. You’ll find yourself spending time watching all the activity on the water as the pleasure craft, fishing boats and occasional cruise ship make their way along the estuary. A 5 minute walk will take you to the foot ferry to Polruan or the sheltered, sandy beach at Readymoney Cove and from here you can join the coast path towards Gribbin Head for spectacular views and places of historical interest. The main hub of independent shops, galleries and eateries is a short stroll away but the beauty of this house is that its position up a private path ensures that it is not overlooked and is tucked away from passing traffic.
66 Esplanade is set across three floors with the living accommodation on the first floor and is designed to make the most of the marvellous outlook. The front entrance door leads into a spacious hallway and on to the main bedroom, a twin room, bathroom and utility room with rear entrance door. An open-plan kitchen/dining/living room takes up most of the first floor and there is a handy shower room on this level also. Two further bedrooms are found on the third floor set in the eaves with some lovely characterful features. This very well-equipped house has good proportions, is decorated in a warm coastal palette and feels bright and welcoming.

Amazing views, very spacious, convenient location for Fowey amenities. We visited with three kids (3/5/7) and had a lovely time.
What a view from the window! We were all so interested in every boat coming in and out. We were very comfortable here and had all that we would ever need. A lovely homely place for sitting and chatting too. We would love to come back.
Thank you we had a lovely holiday. The view was AMAZING. Love Olivia age 9.
The house has been truly fabulous to stay and the view is something special.
A great house with the most amazing views. We have had a fantastic week here. Great days on the beach, good walks and lots of scrummy food. We would love to stay here again.
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.
