Imagine yourself relaxing enjoying a cool drink after a day of walking the South West Coast Path or exploring the fascinating villages and coves of South Cornwall. This charming, private annexe of the owner's home overlooks a splendid garden with its abundant planting and with glorious countryside views as the backdrop, escaping from day-to-day stresses is assured. Open the doors to the Juliet balcony and breathe in the invigorating, fresh Cornish air. Inside you will find a beautifully-furnished, welcoming home - all on one level - with a luxurious super kingsize bed and the delightful accommodation, coupled with the convenient location, is likely to ensure a fabulous visit to this part of Cornwall. Subject to availability, you might also find yourself treated to some delicious local honey produced by the Owner's bees.

The bed can be offered as two singles (if requested at the time of booking) making The Retreat a perfect place for either a couple or two friends holidaying together. 

This location is close enough to be able to walk into Fowey town centre where you can take a passenger ferry across the river to Polruan, or to take the Bodinnick Ferry from Caffa Mill either on foot or by car, and head off to explore the south east corner of Cornwall. There's a circular town bus which stops nearby so you can leave your car for local days out on foot if you prefer. With easy access to the main roads you can also use The Retreat as a base to explore other areas of Cornwall.

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.
