About the owners

We have spent many happy holidays in Cornwall, over the years, with our three boys, our family and friends. We discovered Fowey, however, only two or three years ago! Whilst travelling around Cornwall, we came across Fowey as we looked for somewhere to stay overnight …. and that was it, we loved everything about it! This year (2014) we decided to make a return weekend visit to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. When we noticed Sail Loft was for sale, we acted on impulse … and a new adventure began!! Fowey is a friendly, warm Cornish fishing village, and the Sail Loft perfectly located, tucked away from the bustle, yet seconds from the warm welcome that awaits you! We really hope you love it as much as we do … we think you will!

Year property purchased: 2014

What are the unique benefits of the property?

The Sail Loft is a lovely seaside apartment, set right in the middle of Fowey, yet it is tucked away, and just a moments stroll from the fabulous Butchers, deli and many beautiful shops, cafes & restaurants that this bustling fishing village boasts. Once you have parked your car, there really is no need for you to use it again until you have to say ‘goodbye ’til next time’. There are beautiful coastal walks, boat trips, fishing trips, beaches, restaurants, bars/pubs and fabulous cafes catering for all tastes. There are small high street shops, such as Fatface, Seasalt and Boots, as well as many individual shops selling beautiful and unusual gifts and crafts, all well worth a visit!

I love Fowey, and I love staying at The Sail Loft.
