The Wheelhouse - Facilities

Set within an impressive Victorian town house, The Wheelhouse boasts some of the most stunning wall-to-wall vistas of the Fowey River, the coastline past the beautiful Readymoney Cove beach and out to The English Channel beyond. There are great restaurants to eat in, as well as nearby beaches of Readymoney Cove and Lantic Bay to visit. Your apartment is reached by two flights of stone steps and four small flights of stairs once inside. This is what gives this hidden gem its commanding views, high above the esplanade below. There is an open plan living and dining space, tastefully decorated with a hint of the nautical, with 55" Smart TV and ample, comfortable seating – that is if you can tear yourself away from the view before you! A spacious kitchen provides all you need for your stay, including an electric oven, a gas hob, a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine plus plenty of surface and storage space. There are two bedrooms, one with twin beds, a period feature fireplace and subtle links to Kenneth Grahame, creator of ‘Wind in the Willows’ who found Fowey such an inspiration for his bedtime stories. Bedroom one has a sumptuous double bed and its own en-suite, and there is a further family shower room, too, adding to the bright, airy and relaxing feel of your apartment.
The thriving port town of Fowey has an abundance of charm, with narrow streets, pubs, restaurants and boutique shops to explore and being within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will be struck by your stunning, picturesque surroundings. The harbour is a hive of activity with boats of all shapes and sizes which leads inland along the Fowey Estuary, a tree-lined valley with relaxing woodland walks and a hundred shades of green. Catch the ferry over to Bodinnick or explore the ancient harbours of Looe and Polperro, which are steeped in legends of smuggling and wrecking; they have quaint fishermens’ cottages and coastal views. A short distance to the west lies Charlestown, an iconic harbour where time stands still. The home of a magnificent fleet of tall ships, it has been the location for many films and TV series due to its natural authenticity. The Shipwreck Museum and various eateries make this a wonderful place to visit.
