The Porthole has been beautifully designed by the owners to allow guests to enjoy everything Fowey has to offer. The open plan layout includes a fully fitted luxury kitchen, dining area with table and 4 chairs and generous living space with a sofa, dresser, coffee table, TV and DVD, books and games.
The Porthole is arranged as an apartment in the grounds of a Victorian semi-detached town house with a parking space above.
The beautiful bedroom with French style double bed and pieces of furnisher lovingly restored by the owners, gives it a romantic feel, making it perfect for couples or honeymooners. It even includes a porthole salvaged from a ship. Crisp white linen, with fluffy pillows and duvet will make lazy mornings in bed worthwhile.
However the sofa bed does sleep an extra 2 guests (at a nominal cost) and the apartment has been designed to accommodate 4, if needed.
A compact luxury bathroom with a bath and over shower has timber painted cabinets, a Carrera marble top, shaving point, heated towel rail and a full-length mirror.
French doors lead out onto the slate paved terrace from both the main living space and the bedroom, creating open and airy spaces with ample natural light. The terrace provides an exclusive area with seating to relax and enjoy lazy summer mornings with a fresh coffee, or just while away the time, with a summer evening barbeque.
This beautiful self catering apartment is approached from Hanson Drive and guests will benefit from the use of an off road parking space accessed directly from the road. Slate finished steps lead down to the apartment and its terrace from the parking area. Outside storage in the form of a white shed is provided for the use of guests.
From Hanson Drive it is a 7-minute walk to the centre of Fowey, with its Harbour, river, restaurants, pubs, shops and art galleries. You will find stunning panoramic views out to sea and across to Polruan, which is just a short boat ride away, while the apartment offers glimpses of the river between the houses. Hanson Drive is also only a 10-minute walk to the town beach at Ready Money Cove and St Catherine’s Castle.
The Porthole is the perfect home away from home, for a holiday in the summer, a honeymoon or a stolen romantic moment away together at anytime of the year.
