Be seduced by the sophisticated charm of this stunning luxury 2-bedroom apartment, right in the centre of Fowey. Just a few feet from the water with lovely river views, Broad Slip is elegantly renovated to an exceptional high standard. Light floods in from the large windows overlooking Albert Quay and over the water to Pont Pill, Cairn Beach, and beyond. Perfect for couples and families alike, you have restaurants, pubs, galleries and lots of independent shops to browse in, right on your doorstep. Not suitable for children under the age of 12 years.
The pontoon at Albert Quay is opposite the apartment, so there is always plenty of activity to watch. Readymoney Beach is only a short 15-minute stroll away while the more adventurous can enjoy wonderful walks. St Catherine's Castle and Alldays Field are perfect for picnics with views to Gribbin Head and along the coastline. There are many attractive local walks of varying lengths including the Saints Way, the Hall Walk, Fowey to Polkerris headland walk, with an inviting pub at the end, or try the other direction to Lantic Bay from Polruan.
On entering the apartment there is an attractive hallway with plenty of space for shoes, boots, coats and wellies.
A beautiful wide staircase leads to the large landing with a window looking over those wonderful Harbour views.
The living/dining and kitchen are open plan and to the front of the apartment, looking straight out over Albert Quay. The kitchen is fresh and contemporary with granite worktops and is fully equipped with everything you need for your holiday. It has a Gas hob, electric oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, toaster and microwave. We do not offer the use of a washing machine.
The dining area with an oval table and seating for four has floor to ceiling windows with light pouring into the room. You can sit for hours with a glass of fizz, as there is always something to watch on the river with Fowey being such a busy port. The larger clay ships are turned around by tugs directly opposite to make it easier for them when they leave. You will see lots of activity with yachts, smaller sailing boats and the occasional cruise ship with the passengers disembarking on the Albert quay opposite.
The living room area with comfy sofas, gas coal burner, guarantees cosy evenings so take your pick of board games, books and music to relax and unwind.
There are two large inviting bedrooms, both with crisp white linen and hypoallergenic pillows and duvets with a choice of tog ratings. The main bedroom has a double bed with a king duvet to snuggle into, while the second bedroom offers twin beds. Both bedrooms are tucked away at the back of the apartment so very quiet. The large sleek family bathroom with Heritage Suite, has a bath and separate powerful shower, it even has a self-close wooden loo seat!
Decorated in white with hints of dark blue/grey giving it a nautical-chic feel, Broad Slip is a beautiful and much loved holiday apartment.
Like so many properties in Fowey, Broad Slip does not have parking but is located directly opposite the Harbour Office and the Albert Quay (next to Joules) where there is limited space for short term and overnight parking. Of course, spaces are not guaranteed but this can be useful for unloading and also parking on the night before departure. There is also room on the right hand side of the road to pull in for five minutes and unload if there is a space! For the rest of the time, you can forget about your car and leave it in the Caffa Mill Car Park at the end of the road.
