Relax and unwind on the balcony with your morning coffee or evening tipple. With 3 good sized bedrooms, 2 beautifully appointed bathrooms and a hand painted solid wood kitchen with high specification appliances including a 'Rangemaster' Range Cooker. Outside there is a shared terraced garden to enjoy the last of the afternoon sun. Embrace outdoor living by cooking up a local lobster or Kittow's ribs in the 'Big Green Egg' clay oven, dining out in style using our reclaimed teak garden table and rattan dining chairs.The overall feel of Retreat to Fowey is that of understated chic and comfort. An eclectic mix of contemporary and quirky finds. We are often commended on our attention to detail and families love the fact we keep lots of family friendly equipment so that when you travel to us you won't have to worry about bringing all that extra baby stuff! From high chairs, travel cots, monitors, bouncy chairs, child carriers, strollers, toys and games we've got it covered. We can even organise delicious, fresh local food to be delivered to the apartment or a private chef service. We aim for the highest of standards and want to ensure that we give guests the independence , privacy and flexibility that self catering affords whilst feeling that your being spoilt and pampered as if staying in a five star, boutique hotel.
