A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location
By Sharon Q. on 03-Jan-2019
Smugglers Cottage is a beautifully decorated, delightful cottage with all the home comforts you could need. It has spectacular views to the rear of the cottage and a garden from where these can be enjoyed. The cottage is in a central location so that the town can be explored without needing to use the car. Smugglers Cottage is definitely on our places to return list!
Lovely views, comfortable clean cottage, every facility supplied.
By GrahamBawtry on 22-Oct-2018
The week we spent at Smugglers was very enjoyable. The bed is as comfortable as any bed I have slept in when on holiday, the cottage is charming both in location overlooking the estuary and with facilities like the log burner to be used during cold spells although we didn’t find it necessary as the cottage is cosy and well maintained when the weather is reasonable (we stayed in early October)
Nothing was too much trouble for Ali both before and during the stay, she answered several questions for us beforehand which gave us a head start on what we needed to bring for our stay, where to purchase certain items and how to make the most of it while we were there. The Visitors book also gave us some very good recommendations on where to eat and spend our days out.
Overall very good in a superb location, a very clean cottage with everything we needed.
very comfortable all facilities available
By Gilbert B. on 23-Sep-2018
this is an exceptional property with all home comforts and quite close to the town centre
By Gill V. on 05-Sep-2018
Lovely cottage, well maintained, cosy and clean with an amazing view of the river.
great cottage in a lovely spot
By Jane S. on 10-Jul-2018
Pretty cottage beautifully modernised with a very pretty garden with views across the estuary. Very well equipped and comfortable.
By Mirko S. on 29-Jun-2018
We found Smugglers the perfect place for a relaxing week in the beautiful village of Fowey and exploring Cornwall. Everything was perfect and in good shape, communication with Ali was good at every aspect. Can only recommend this place!! But one point of warning: the walk from the village, and to the parking lot is short, but quite steep. But without that, one wouldn't have the unparalleled view. :-)
A really good place to stay for a holiday in Cornwall
By John P. on 03-Jun-2018
Clean and comfortable with everything we needed
Perfect cottage for a lovely break
By Katey S. on 27-May-2018
Smugglers cottage was everything you would want for a holiday in this part of Cornwall. A home from home and I was a little bit sad to leave! The view was stunning and we breakfasted every morning on the sunny patio watching the boats in the estuary.
Excellent position to potter into the village and loads to do in the area.
I would highly recommend Smugglers and hope to get back there again
Perfect in a beautiful setting
By Andrew G. on 08-Apr-2018
Not sure what else I can add to the title really. Ali and Pete presented a beautiful, clean cottage which is a real home from home. Absolutely would recommend anyone to stay at Smugglers.
Beautiful cottage with attention to detail for decor, cleanliness and comfort
By Janet B. on 30-Mar-2018
The cottage was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and very comfortable to stay in. It was a last minute break for us as we only booked the day before but Ali made it very easy for all the arrangements to be made and the cottage was welcoming, warm and cosy after a long drive there. We were sad to leave after just 3 nights - you may see us again especially as we didn't have the weather in March for sitting outside in the gorgeous garden. We would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends...and anyone else too!
Lovely cottage in a lovely location
By Steve A. on 25-Mar-2018
From the moment we stepped into Smugglers Cottage we knew we would have a lovely time. It is in a great location with splendid views across the rooftops of Fowey. The cottage is lovely - warm, cosy, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and has all you need for a relaxing time.
We visited in the winter and so the log burner was very welcome.
Fowey is a lovely town with friendly shops and pubs and some great restaurants. If you like walking there are many walked you can do from the doorstep of Smugglers.
We will definately return.
Amazing views, immaculate cottage!
By Juliette T. on 21-Feb-2018
Had a fab stay at this well equipped and maintained cottage. Nice touches like fresh flowers helped to make it a special stay. Lovely and warm and cosy, views were breathtaking and convenient location for walking to town (if you don’t mind a steep hill!). Great mini break with the kids.
Just brilliant. Wonderful, beautifully maintained property with lovely helpful owners.
By Anne D. on 27-Jan-2018
Cottage very clean, characterful and well cared for. Modern and light inside with lovely features like log burner and brilliant open plan kitchen. Central with lovely views and garden. Owners incredibly helpful and accessible. Could walk to so many beautiful places. Totally lovely holiday - the retreat that I needed.
Very well presented and perfectly located cottage
By Julie G on 16-Sep-2017
Smugglers cottage was perfect for our needs. Comfortable, clean and with outside space. The jewel in the crown being the views, which you just never tire of. The local car park at the top of the hill is very close (5 mins walk) and the downhill walk into the centre is also only a few minutes walk although both are very steep, great for a bit of cardio exercise! The cottage is also situated on a quiet road. All in all a lovely place to stay in the great town of Fowey.
Pretty cottage and garden with great river views
By Anne B on 28-Jul-2017
The cottage is in a great location in the town, very comfortable and to a high standard and is well equipped. Very pretty garden with several terraces all with amazing views across the town and to the river. Ideal for breakfast outside in the morning and sitting with a glass of wine in the evening. I have been visiting Fowey for many years and this is the nicest cottage I have stayed in: will definitely like to stay in again. Maybe book for less rain next time though!
By Annette P on 23-Jul-2017
Smugglers Cottage is a well appointed, light and airy space overlooking the marina and river mouth. There is a delightful little garden with table and chairs placed for a pretty view of the boats and opposite hillside. It has all that one needs for a relaxing week away by the sea. It is a couple of minutes walk from restaurants and pubs although the hilly nature if the walks exercises one somewhat! We loved our time spent here.
Lovely Characterful Cottage With Great River Views
By Roger S on 07-Jun-2017
We absolutely loved Smugglers Cottage! Booking was easy - with Ali and Peter through Owners Direct. Response times were quick, and Ali forwarded perfect details for accessing the cottage, with links for purchasing car parking for the week in the car park just up the hill from the cottage. It was very easy to park outside to unload and then drop off the car in the nearest car park. The cottage is entered through a stable door, into an open plan arrangement, with lovely kitchen and dining table to the front, and comfortable sitting area with TV and log burner to the rear. From here, French doors overlook the pretty garden with outdoor seating, BBQ, pergola, and river views of the Church and ancestral home. It really is a lovely spot. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Everywhere was spotless and thoughtfully presented, with quality bath towels and bed linen provided, plus tea towels, and hand soap. The kitchen has plenty of storage, and plenty of equipment, including a dishwasher, iron, and washing machine etc. There is also a downstairs loo. We slept well in the comfy beds and enjoyed exploring Fowey. We can't recommend Smugglers Cottage more highly for a most comfortable stay, with amazing views of the river, the beautiful garden, the well-equipped kitchen, and the central location for exploring the outlying areas. There is so much to see and do in Fowey and beyond! If you love sailing, fishing, swimming, good food, then I would say that Fowey is an upmarket place with a down to earth feel about it. We are glad we chose to stay here. We can't thank Ali and Peter enough for making our stay so enjoyable and memorable. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and we had the pleasure of meeting them before we left. They genuinely want people to be happy and comfortable, so I would recommend contacting them if you have any queries. They were most helpful. In summary, we would highly recommend the cottage as a perfectly located place to stay in Fowey. And because you are half way up the hill, when the storms come in, you get a birds eye view from the house...it was amazing to watch this spectacle of light from Mother Nature. We will treasure the memories of our time spent in Ali and Peter's cosy, 'home away from home'. Highly recommended.
Absolutely perfect. Real home from home
By Ann W. on 13-Feb-2017
What an outstanding property. Has everything you need and more besides. Spotlessly clean, superb views, lots of local eateries, especially The Luggers in the town. Fab food at good prices, but only go if you're starving, the portions are humongous ! Thank you Ali for all your help and making our winter break so special. Highly recommended
Stunning Smugglers Cottage
By Lin S. on 09-Dec-2016
Smugglers Cottage was just perfect for our holiday. The views are truly special and the pretty garden was terrific for sitting out in and watching the boats go by in the autumn sunshine. The cottage was beautifully finished, spotlessly clean and so cosy sitting in front of the log burner in the evenings. The kitchen and range cooker were a real treat too. Smugglers Cottage is in a great location, convenient to the Town, the car park and only a short walk to Readymoney Cove. Ali was great with our booking and checking that we had everything we needed. All in all a truly amazing find! We will definitely be coming back!
By Diane & Peter London on 28-Apr-2016
Smuggler's Cottage is situated on a quiet street, about a 5 minute walk from the town.
It is nicely furnished and the decor is both modern and stylish. The owners have obviously put a great deal of thought into the design, as well as the comfort, of the property.
A file containing user manuals for all appliances, together with general information regarding the cottage and the area, is provided. Clearly a lot of time and effort went into compiling the file - very impressive and helpful.
There are lovely sea views from the rear garden, which is three tiered.
It is very peaceful & relaxing and the silence is broken only by the occasional 'vocal' seagull, or the delightful hourly chime of the church clock.
The cottage is not too far from the car park, which is accessed via a few steps opposite. We would recommend purchasing a parking ticket (£47.00 for the week) from the tourist centre in the town (next to the church). They are open at week-ends, so it is easy and convenient.
Fowey has a number of good restaurants and the local people are extremely friendly and helpful.
We would definitely recommend staying at Smuggler's Cottage and hope to return some time.
Amazing place - gorgeous!
By Lou Stockport on 30-Apr-2015
We have stayed in Fowey 4 times before and this is the best accomodation we have stayed at. Beautifully equipped with everything you need, spotlessly clean and gorgeous views. A real gem of a property - i'd book if I were you!!
Gem of a cottage you won't want to leave!
By Mr P & Family Shropshire on 30-Nov-2014
If, like us, you’re looking for somewhere special for a break in a breathtaking part of the country and have a few tabs open on your browser, comparing places to stay, may I respectfully advise you to close all the others and pick Smugglers Cottage. You will not be disappointed and can bathe in the warmth of praise from the rest of the family that you’ve found a real gem. Smugglers had everything we needed - spotlessly clean, well-appointed with a top-of-the range kitchen, log-burning stove which made for cosy evenings when we stayed in late November, comfy beds & duvets and plenty of outdoor seating to take in the spectacular view and listen to the sound of boats on the river, seagulls and church bells. Fowey has some cracking pubs and restaurants, unique craft & clothes shops, a deli, bakery and best of all, friendly people. The walks along the coastline are amazing, and there’s the option of a ferry across the river to Polruan and more walks or in the summer a longer trip to Mevagissey. A big thank you to Ali for a special holiday full of wonderful memories - we’ll definitely be back!
