Lower Deck Apartment, part of ‘The Square Rig’, is a delightful one bedroom apartment providing quality accommodation for two.
With superb river views from the balcony, the property is situated within a very short distance of the shops, restaurants, pubs and quays of Fowey and the car park is approximately 5 minutes’ level walk away.
Fowey is a delightful old seaside town with many attractions. As well as local shops there are galleries showing the work of local artists and craftspeople, gift shops, riverside cafes and bistros as well as tea rooms serving delicious cream teas, all within walking distance of The Square Rig apartments.
Home to a Royal Yacht Club, Fowey holds a Royal Regatta every August, a week-long festival which takes place both on and off the water.
Every May there is also a cultural festival. Authors Daphne du Maurier and Arthur Quiller Couch lived in Fowey, the town also has links with Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows, which is loosely based on the River Fowey and uses local landmarks in the story.
On the river and the estuary there is a wide variety of birds as well as seals and even dolphins, which sometimes venture close to the shore. Sightseeing boat trips offer the opportunity not only to spot the wildlife but also to see this dramatic coastline from a different perspective. If you fancy exploring further afield there is the Fowey to Mevagissey Ferry, that runs throughout the season (weather permitting), or you can take one of the Square Rig’s kayaks or the rowing boat up the river (strictly at guests own risk, limited range of buoyancy aides, guests are advised to bring their own or hire locally) and see the small waterside villages with their quaint churches and lively pubs.
If you feel like a walk, ferries cross the estuary at both ends of the town, going to Bodinnick and Polruan. Once on the other side, there is the famous Hall Walk that follows the estuary, taking you through wooded valleys and past hidden creeks and offering amazing views from the cliffs.
Other activities such as cycling, golf, horse riding and walking can all be enjoyed locally. Visits can be made to historic country houses and castles such as Lanhydrock House and Restormel Castle as well as The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and other National Trust and private gardens of which there are many in Cornwall.
