Nestled in the heart of maritime Fowey, The Hideout has been lovingly transformed to present an enviable coastal pad with river views from the garden.  With great access to chic cafes, unique shops and tempting restaurants this three storey hideaway with pretty courtyard garden is perfect for friends and family alike.

The Property

Tastefully styled to reflect the nautical inspiration of the area with crisp white and sailor blue walls, vintage Cornish artwork, anchor and stripe soft furnishings.  A cosy sitting room is perfect to relax in after a day on the water.  Lead through to the separate kitchen with circular dining table all set for family meals and holiday living.  Three beautiful bedrooms over two higher floors continue the nautical theme with sumptuous beds and white linens complemented by striped floor rugs and cushions.  This coastal cottage is of a high standard and well equipped for your stay.

We had a lovely holiday, the cottage was very nice and exceptionally well equipped to a very high standard.  The view from the upstairs window was outstanding and I would certainly recommend to anyone else.

The kitchen door leads out to a characterful private courtyard garden with wooden dining table and chairs, lovely Fowey River views enable you to check for fair winds and calm seas!  This private al fresco space really does capture the morning sun so breakfast in the garden is on the cards.  The Hideout really is a fabulous coastal retreat suitable for families and couples alike.  It is located on Lostwithiel Street in the heart of Fowey so everything really is on your holiday doorstep.  Unlike many of the streets in Fowey, Lostwithiel Street does allow vehicular access so you can conveniently pull up right outside the property to unload.  Fowey is nestled between Looe and Mevagissey on the south Cornish coast, an designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its natural harbour making it a mecca for talented yachtsmen.  This once sleepy town is now alive with bustle from the boutique shops, chic cafes, exhibiting galleries, restaurants and fine dining hotels.  Take a gentle stroll along the Esplanade or don your walking boots for the popular Hall walk bringing you neatly back to a local pub.  This delightful Cornish harbour town really does offer something for everyone to enjoy all year round.  The Hideout is a real gem be it family, friends or couples looking to immerse themselves in traditional Cornish life.
