House in Fowey, Cornwall, England - Quiet Location With Parking For Two Cars And Within A Short Walk To Town.
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.

Fantastic house for a family holiday
Bright, airy, modern, well furnished and welcoming. Good location (if you don't mind a few hills), quiet, great view and had everything we needed. Definitely booking this property again.
Great holiday home
Wonderful kitchen. Great view from lounge and upstairs front bedroom. Parking in front of house.
Not suitable for people who have issues with climbing steps.
Lovely comfortable house with brilliant views.
We enjoyed a lovely week staying at the Bowshot Lady. The house more than provided for all our needs and was very well equipped clean and comfortable. Enjoyed relaxing in the various extra seating.areas and the garden. Fowey was a lovely place with lots of character and many things to do and walk to without even getting in the car. The river was always of interest and we enjoyed watching all the boats coming and going. Would definitely recommend this property and would love to return in the future.
Fantastic, home from home
If you find yourself like I did spending hours looking for what you think is the appropriate property, stop now and book this magnificent house, the photos don't do it justice, and has everything you need in a great location, well equipped, comfortable, with good views.
Very homely house, it was great for us with our two children. Thank you.

A lovely week
The house was well furnished, comfortable, clean and homely. The house is a ten minute walk, uphill from the waterfront where the pubs/restaurants/bakers etc are gathered. It's quite steep but nothing you wouldn't expect from a visit to Cornwall!. There is room to park at the front gate and there is a convenience store in the road above he house if you don't fancy the walk back up from town. We enjoyed walks along the South West coast path from the house. We were also within easy driving distance of Lands End, St Michael's Mount, Minnack Theatre, Bodmin, Dartmoor, Penzance, Newlyn, Lanhydrock House, Eden Project, the Lost gardens. In fact a week wasn't nearly long enough to see everything that we would have liked.
Thank you for a great review of The Bowshot Lady in Fowey, we are glad you found our popular family home pleasing to you and was ideal for a 'taste' of the wonderful Cornish hospitality. Hope you visit this part of Cornwall again to enjoy the places you liked and perhaps see some that you missed.

Good location,very clean with fresh deco, great view from front bedroom.
We had a very nice time, the house is warm clean and well appointed.
Car parking space is essential in Fowey so 2 is a bonus.
Less than a 10 min walk to the centre with great pubs and shops.
A very quiet location no noise from roads or neighbours.
Only down side for me, the mattress on the double bed is soft and not good for a back problem.
Thank you very much for your kind remarks, so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our well loved holiday home and that you like Fowey. We would love to welcome you back soon.
