My Husband and i had been searching for some time for a suitable place to take our young son on our first Family holiday without having to pack up the entire house! Retreat to Fowey had thought of absolutely everything we needed and more, we didn't even need to take his pram! To give you an idea; there were safety gates, baby monitors, a high chair, travel cot, sangenic nappy disposal, steam bottle steriliser, toys and dvd's for all ages.. the list goes on. Booking was a breeze, Fiona was so helpful and offered great advice on the best places to shop and dine.
On arrival a delicious welcome basket awaited us full of local produce, freshly baked scones and bread, Cornish butter, cream and jam! There was also wine available to purchase at the apartment if you chose, having arrived late in the evening this was much appreciated.
The apartment was just as beautiful as Fowey itself, relaxing and luxurious. A definite 5* apartment, wonderfully decorated, comfortable and perfect for families and couples alike. The view from both the bedroom and sitting room were truly beautiful, you can not help but fall in love with Fowey and the people. We took the advice Fiona passed on when booking and shopped and dined locally, you are spoiled for choice with many places to eat. We are already planning to return later this year with our extended family.
In addition to the well catered apartment there is also a laundry room with washing machine, dryer and a beach hut with everything a large family could possibly want or need for a day at the beach... they really have thought of everything here! We did not get a chance to use the fully equipped patio/BBQ area as we were out and about but that too was perfect for large families/friends, a lovely communal space.
On the one day of showers we had, we took full advantage of the passes provided for Fowey Hall Hotel that is situated directly behind the apartment. The staff and facilities at both the Spa and the Hotel were wonderful and catered specifically to families. Well worth a visit whatever the weather, Beautiful gardens, play areas, delicious food and the view from the outdoor hot tub was stunning!
I am sure i have forgotten more than I remember about this beautiful apartment and my review does not begin to do it justice but I hope it goes a little way in helping you confirm you have made absolutely the right choice. It is also a perfectly placed base for visiting the delights of Cornwall of which there are many.
We were also fortunate during our stay to get a brief viewing of the larger apartment, apartment 1... where to begin?!! It was, if possible, more beautiful that apartment 2! We could quite happily have moved in :)
