About Peter Gleed
Hi, My name is Peter and my wife's name is Gill, we have enjoyed owning our lovely holiday home in Fowey since buying it in 1999 after a long search for... 'just the right one.' We are both retired and also live part-time in Oxfordshire. Our children are grown and scattered but they all love to come down to Fowey with our grandchildren to visit with us and enjoy all the fantastic Cornish beaches, water sports and a traditional friendly welcome with good honest food and drink. We hope that after visiting this site you will want to come and enjoy our home, The Bowshot Lady and our NEW addition Bowshot Cottage too.
Peter Gleed purchased this House in 1999
Why Peter Gleed chose Fowey
We bought The Bowshot Lady. the name that we chose for it in honour of all the ladies in our family. The choice was easy, a modern house built in the 60's to an award winning design in a location overlooking the town, the river estuary, the NT woods and the open meadows beyond. We are easy to find at the top of the town and accessable without going through the town itself. The house is positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with no passing main-road traffic.
What makes this House unique
Our home has been extended, landscaped and tastefully decorated with lots of comfort features, including a spacious designer kitchen. The views from the house and garden are spectacular and the garden and courtyard areas are very suitable for relaxing or entertaining. We also have garaging and parking next to the house for our guests use. And to top everything we are only a short walk to the harbour and town and in walking distance to the beaches.
