Stay & Supper
Choc full of original pieces and art the interiors reflect the music loving, food champions that have created two restaurants in Fowey and Polkerris. Thus the kitchen is totally kitted out with everything you need to cook up a storm. Perfect for supper parties the large kitchen with an island breakfast bar and plenty of worktop space gives you more than enough room to create culinary masterpieces. The modern kitchen houses a stainless steel range gas cooker, micro, big fridge/freezer and dishwasher – though you do have to load it, this is a holiday after all! And if it all goes a little off piste? Head down to the centre of Fowey for burgers and fresh fish on the harbour front.
The five bedroom property has four bathrooms, all with super power showers (as well as an additional outdoor hot/cold shower for a post surf/ regatta hose down). Walk down the few steps and enter the hallway leading to the open plan kitchen and main living area. With under-floor heating throughout kick off the shoes and pad about barefoot – or with flipflops in true Cornish style. The sofa is big enough for eight and with cosy armchairs positioned around the wide screen digital TV with Sky & DVD player, bring your favourite films and settle down for a home from homestay cinema. Or snuggle up with hot chocs around the fire…
Late nights & Lie ins
The feature staircase leads up to the four bedrooms on the first floor. The first is the second master bedroom with kingsize bed. Then the second double, the twin room and lastly the large double room. The next floor up is the master suite. With wraparound views of the estuary, harbour front and Fowey town, the French doors lead out to the large balcony with chairs positioned perfectly to appreciate the view (and to sup copious wine!) There is a second room at this level with large sofa-bed for flexible sleeping arrangements. But with the same lovely views and access to the patio it can be used as a private lounge with a TV and DVD player.
Soak off the salt water
With four bathrooms, three of which are ensuite wetrooms and the fourth a family sized bathroom complete with decadently deep bath there is more than enough space to hose off the sand from a day on the beach. There is an outdoor hot shower for those who have got a little too dirty whilst exploring.
Samsenet has the perfect office nook with excellent broadband WiFi if you can’t leave the office at home. Completing the downstairs is the large utility room with washing machine, tumble drier, sink and leads out to the outdoor shower.
The wrap-around family garden has a super trampoline for guests’ use. With outdoor BBQ and seating, make the most of the fresh market produce and eat alfresco. Make sure to add wellies as well as swimsuits to make the most of Samsenet.
