Very cosy cottage
Very cosy Cottage as described, short walk into town and good starting point for other walks
Had a lovely stay at The Shippen. The cottage is cosy, well maintained and well equipped. The walk through the woods down to the beach was gorgeous and Fowey itself is everything you would expect from a Cornish seaside town - culture, local shops, great places to eat.
Our second year here and we both plus our Labrador, Pippa love this place. The weather this year was not so great and the cottage is well equipped with tv and DVD player and the lovely big sofa is very comfortable to curl up on to watch a film. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Sue, Kenny and Pippa
Wonderful Cosy Cottage
We recently stayed for a week with our dog. The cottage is all on one level and have a secure garden so we didn't have to worry about the dog getting out. Its positioned overlooking a small field and is lovely and quiet as no one passes by. Its about a 15 minute walk to the center of Fowey, you have a choice via the road or via St Catherine parade which is a beautiful walk.
The cottage was clean and had lots of extra bits and bobs to make your stay comfortable, we particularly liked the Alexa. We would suggest you bring a tin opener as we were missing one and our mushy peas didn't have a ring pull, but this was the only negative we could find.
Fowey has lots of lovely walks from your door step, ferry rides, restaurants, cafe's and pubs. We found everyone very friendly and would recommend the cottage and location.
Great Place To Stay
This is our third visit to “The Shippen “ and we love the beautiful little gem tucked away, it’s got everything you need for a relaxing holiday including a very handy Alexa added since our last stay, we’ve been staying in Fowey for many years and you won’t find better!! Just my opinion of course!
A nice well placed cottage
Small but cosy cottage well placed for Fowey via a pleasant woodland walk. Well equipped. Second bedroom is accessed via first bedroom but has lots of character. Ideal for families.
Hi Andy, thanks for leaving a review about The Shippen and glad you enjoyed your stay. Pleases remember to look at www.theshippenfowey.co.uk next time your look to holiday in Cornwall. Cheers Harry
The pretty seaside town of Fowey in Cornwall is home to Readymoney Beach, a gorgeous sandy cove perfect for all the family. Located just a 10 minute walk from the cottage, the beach sits at the mouth of the River Fowey and is great for swimming with a platform available for those with a little experience. At low tide there are rock pools to discover and often an ice-cream van sits nearby. Dogs are allowed on this beach in the off season.
Other local beaches within easy reach include Par Sands, Polkerris, Polridmouth Cove, Whitehouse, Polruan Quay, Lantic Bay and Lansallos Beach. A few of these permit dogs all year round, so are well worth visiting in staying with your pets.
Within Fowey, which was the home of author Daphne Du Maurier there are several restaurants and shops. The area, which is also designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is ideal for walkers with the coast path easily accessed.
