1 Albert Place is nestled a stone’s throw from the water’s edge, in the popular Cornish town of Fowey. Set off the main street down a private alleyway, it is minutes shops, restaurants, pubs and beaches. You also have free use of a pool and hot tub.
Our cottage has been lovingly restored since we became the owners in 2011 and has a slate stone floor plus a fairy lit slate and lime feature wall, as well as sash windows throughout. Modern touches include a jacuzzi bath and underfloor heating.
We also offer free membership to the exclusive Fowey Hall Hotel swimming pool and spa, just a 10 minute walk away, and the only one in an 8 mile radius.
There is one double bedroom, and one bedroom with full size bunk beds - plus a double sofa bed downstairs. We also have dining table and comfy corner sofa.
The bathroom includes a jacuzzi bath plus shower.
All sheets and towels are 100% Egyptian cotton.
The whole place had a bright yet cosy feel to it, and is lit with vintage marine lights from our shop Any Old Lights
We also have wifi and broadband, and because mobile reception is unreliable have a landline phone for guests as well
The whole place is yours, the alley is easily accessible from the street.

We do allow dogs but ask that they are kept downstairs only.
Sorry no smoking in the house, though there is an alley way outside.

Nick (my husband) and I bought Albert Place in 2011. I had spent an idyllic childhood here, in a house which hosted students from around the world, after-school evenings on the beach, sand in my hair and dodgy tales of Gossips ‘nightclub’. Nick (though it was hardly his fault) grew up in Hampshire.
We both moved to London to find our fortunes, Sinead as a press officer, working with charities and social entrepreneurs, Nick as a journalist (Guardian, Times Magazine, Radio Times) and author (Dalek I Loved You). After meeting over a love of karaoke and pub quizzes, we waved goodbye to the city for Fowey with our baby daughter, Regan (named after John Thaw’s character in The Sweeney), so she too could have afternoons on a beach. Fortunately, Gossips had shut down.
Together we set up the popular Love Fowey website and Nick also runs the Any Old Lights vintage marine lighting shop next to the church. Another wee one, Soren, came along (named from our love of Scandinavian films and crime dramas), and we now live around 10 minutes up the hill.
We are lucky enough to live in one of the most gorgeous places in the UK - we know the town and surrounding areas very well and are happy to help with any requests you may have
