Step Inside

Inches Quay is a coastal townhouse set over 3 floors. Step into the hallway and lead into the heart of the house, the light and welcoming living area with open plan kitchen and dining space. Gather as a group to map out the day ahead, sit aside the fire in cooler months or enjoy family celebrations against the backdrop of the river views. Inspired by industrial chic, the striking slate blue/grey kitchen adds a modern twist amidst the original features. The budding chef in the party is well catered for, whipping up holiday menus in this culinary creative space. Dine around the thoughtfully designed dining table with built-in bench seating and wooden panelling. A tucked away cloakroom completes the ground floor. Climb the central staircase to the light and sunny first floor where guests can choose from the warmth of the sunshine yellow king bedded room, the coastal blues of the zip/lock bedroom or the playful design of the cabin bunk bedded room. Ascend to the second floor and step into the luxury haven of the master bedroom with superking bed, freestanding headboard and original exposed brick wall. The family bathroom is located on the second floor with stylish tiling and copper taps. 

From your Holiday Door

Inches Quay offers two sit out spaces, to the front of the house is an area of built-in seating just perfect for that morning cuppa. Steps lead up from the kitchen area and the side of the house to an elevated large private terrace with outside dining table and chairs. This suntrap courtyard welcomes al fresco dining from lazy breakfasts to evening suppers. A smaller lower terrace is set just off the first floor with two relaxed sun chairs. The house is set within a plum location in Fowey with the high street just a 3 minute walk away. Fowey has long been home to hardy sailors and all things nautical and today the town maintains its maritime heritage yet offers a delightful cosmopolitan fusion of stylish cafes and boutique shops. Readymoney Cove is just a short walk away, a sandy tidal beach where the river meets the blue sea of St Austell Bay or jump in the car and head to Polridmouth, a hidden sandy cove great for swimming. The Roseland Peninsula is along the coast offering many more beaches or swap coasts and explore the north where rolling surf meets high cliffs. If walking is on the agenda then breathe new life into your walking boots and head up and over Gribben Head to the Daymark and capture some of Cornwall's most beautiful natural scenery. Hop on a ferry, kayak the creeks or simply watch the world sail by in Fowey. The Eden Project is approx 20 minutes drive away and well worth a visit to see the iconic biomes and outstanding botanical gardens or head to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and discover the unearthed beauty.
