Built in 1826, ""Captains Row"" was the home of Capt Bate, an old sea captain. It is right on the River Fowey. Beautifully refurbished in 2006, it has all of the amenities of a luxury holiday home that is regularly used by it’s owners. The views are stunning and there are two balconies from which to watch the bustling life of the river – from yachts to freighters, and fishing boats to traditional gig racers.

This is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and when you stand on a balcony looking at the view, it is easy to see why! Listen to the cry of seagulls, watch cormorants fly over the water, and maybe see a kingfisher flash past in a glitter of colour. Fowey retains its unique, unspoiled charm, with its narrow winding streets, old fashioned pubs and variety of shops. It is within easy reach of beaches, spectacular walks, the Eden Project and other places of interest. All this to make your holiday enjoyable, relaxing, interesting and exciting when you come to this oasis by the river.

Notes on accommodation: Telephone accepts incoming calls, toll-free calls and emergency calls. Gas and electricity are included in the rental. There is no smoking or pets at Captains Row, and the house is not suitable for children under the age of 12 years. Outside: Both balconies are big enough to dine on. Parking: One of the many lovely things about Fowey is that it is not really a car place – it’s a walking place – and so parking in the town centre is restricted. Caffa Mill is the nearest car park. It is about 200 yards further on down the road from Captains Row. You have to pay and display day and night . If Caffa Mill is full, there is another car park which is just past the Caffa Mill car park. In the unlikely event that both these car parks are full, there is the town’s main car park (clearly sign posted), or other parking around the town. (Full details about parking are available when booking). Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All bed linen, towels (for indoor use) and tea towels are provided (changed each week). Please bring your own beach towels. Cleaning is once a week on Friday
