The Garden View Apartment is on the raised ground floor of Carnethic House, a beautifully converted period house. All rooms have French windows opening onto a south facing large covered veranda -- ideal for al fresco meals. There is direct access from the veranda to the award winning gardens which are a joy at all seasons. The beach and the charming town of Fowey with its picturesque harbour are a short walk through the garden and down the country lane -- a lovely walk. There is very useful dedicated parking on the drive. All the rooms are light and sunny , freshly redecorated this year in Farrow and Ball paints. There are maple floors throughout, a maple and granite kitchen and black granite and white bathrooms -- all very elegant and stylish. Bedroom 1 has a super king and bedroom 2 a king / 2 singles. A great bonus in autumn and winter is the log fire . There is a wonderful heated indoor pool with 2 sides of windows looking out into the lovely gardens. We monitor the pool daily and try to keep chlorine to a minimum -- preferably not at all. There is also a shower room , toilet and Finnish sauna and in warm weather the pool has a telescopic roof . Perfect at any time of year

Fowey is a charming unspoilt little town on the sheltered south coast of Cornwall . It's an estuary at the mouth of the River Fowey and the sea where sailing is very popular -- sailing courses can be arranged as can boat hire , fishing and kayaking. It's unbelievably picturesque with its little creeks and coves all ready for you to explore. Carnethic House is well placed for visiting nearby NT and historic houses and the famous Cornish gardens where Spring comes early - many flowers are in bloom in January because of the mild climate. Readymoney Cove is a lovely sheltered beach with safe swimming and rock pools and a great little cafe and only a short car free walk from the house. Another favourite nearby beach is Polkerris with the Rashleigh Arms and Sams on the Beach for great food. There are lovely walks from the house - leave the car on the drive and just set off and explore ! ( see my info sheet ). There is easy access to the South Cornwall coastal path with its exhilarating views - a favourite walk is to Menabilly, made famous by Daphne Du Maurier. Many of her books are set near Fowey where her family still lives. Come and see seals, dolphins, skylarks and other joys
