About Purcell House

Would you like to stay in a beautifully restored house with wonderful views over the Fowey Estuary? Then come and enjoy Purcell House, where the combination of 19th century charm and 21st century convenience provides a wonderfully relaxing retreat, which guests have returned to time and time again.

Purcell House is set above the road, a few moments from the centre of the vibrant town of Fowey, an unspoilt historic port on the South Coast of Cornwall. The natural harbour, wooded valleys and picturesque stone cottages provide the perfect backdrop to a family holiday or romantic getaway.

Fowey boasts a fine collection of shops, galleries and places to eat and there is a selection of stunning coastal walks on your doorstep. However, the best way to enjoy Fowey is to get out onto the river, so why not hire a motor boat or canoe and explore the river at your leisure or at least take the little passenger ferry to Polruan. There are at least two sandy beaches within easy walking distance of Purcell House and many more for those prepared to drive a short distance or walk further round the coastline.

Attractions In Fowey: Fowey Museum, Fowey Aquarium; St Catherine’s Castle; The South West Coastal Path; Ferry to Mevagissey; start of the The Saint’s Way; Fowey Regatta in August; Du Maurier Festival in May; Fowey Parish Church - 15th century building with a friendly, evangelical congregation; Nathan Outlaw’s Michelin star restaurant and a good selection of Cornish Inns, Bistro's and Restaurants serving wonderful fresh seafood.

Near by: There are plenty of delights just waiting to be explored in this beautiful area including: The Eden Project; Lanhydrock House (NT); Lost Garden’s of Heligan; The Monkey Sanctuary; Shipwreck; Rescue and the Heritage centre.

Location (Cornwall)

This pretty double-fronted holiday home has been imaginatively redesigned to create spacious living accommodation, without losing its integrity and original charm.

Accommodation and facilities:

From a sheltered porch, the side door opens onto a slate-floored hallway with plenty of space for buckets and spades, walking boots or golf clubs.

Stairs rise to the upper levels and doors lead to the cloakroom and kitchen. Two bay windows allow the morning sun to flood into the kitchen and the front door opens onto the raised terrace - a perfect place to watch the world go by and enjoy the morning sun. The kitchen is well equipped and has inspired many a feast using fresh local ingredients available from the shops in the town. There is plenty of space and the dining table extends to seat eight to ten guests comfortably.

Upstairs, views of the harbour and into Pont Creek can be enjoyed from both the bathroom and the large, open plan sitting room where you can watch the boats sail by.

The light airy sitting room is partially divided by the staircase. At one end there are comfortable chairs and a large L-shaped sofa - the perfect place to curl up with a book by the gas coal effect fire, watch a DVD or just stare out the window at the sea. The sofa becomes a comfortable double bed if you require further sleeping accommodation. Meanwhile the other half of the room provides a generous space for children to spread out their toys and a small writing desk.

At the top of the house are two sunny bedrooms, which both have views of Place and the church. In the double bedroom large windows look onto the sheltered roof terrace, whilst the twin has the best view of the River Fowey in the house.

From the hallway a smoked-glass door gives access to the roof terrace, which is one of the few places in Fowey to catch the early evening sun.

Additional information: Please be aware there is a short flight of steep steps approaching this property and it is set over three floors, so it may not be suitable for everyone. Nearby parking may be available by arrangement, as can a travel cot and high chair. Please contact the owners to discuss how they can help you to have all you need to enjoy a stress-free holiday.
