Description

Killas Cottage takes its name from the local stone from which it is built and is found in a tucked-away passageway, with no passing traffic, just moments from the town centre and harbour front. You could stroll down to the harbour with your morning coffee, pick up a fresh croissant along the way and sit on the wall watching the marine activity as everything is within an easy walk.

A gorgeous, terraced 18th Century cottage which has been beautifully modernised inside whilst retaining authentic features such as the exposed stone walls and timber beams, flagstone flooring and the snuggly fireplace with its wood-burning stove. The original wood panelling has been restored effectively to create a traditional yet contemporary feel to the cottage and the two luxurious bathrooms are a delightful mix of bold colour and style.

This old cottage set across three floors, (with steep stairs on each level), has three bedrooms and is ideal for a small family of up to four or for a group of friends wanting to discover the delights of this estuary town. The quirky feel to the cottage ensures character in abundance combined with modern facilities and a great location.

Reviews

Great cottage right in the centre of Fowey, literally only minutes from all the main restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. Accommodation is small but very well designed to maximise use of the space. Three good sized bedrooms, very comfortable beds and linen and two good shower/bathrooms. Worked perfectly for us as a family of four, two teenagers each requiring their own room. We would definitely rent Killas Cottage again and give it a strong recommendation to others.

Mr S,

Cosy, comfortable cottage positioned a few minutes walk from Town Quay.

Mrs O,

Map

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.
