With glorious sea views, this wonderful Grade II listed Georgian town house in the heart of Fowey is set right on the waters' edge of the River Fowey and is the perfect home stay for families, a group of friends or couples after lots of space. Relaxed yet luxurious, the interiors are classic and refined, in muted colours and warm wood to make the most of the incredible sea and town views. Its location, just minutes from the bustling streets, is just perfect; tucked-away enough that when you shut the door it feels like you're in your own private hideaway, hidden from the world. It also benefits from private access to the water, so if you're keen on exploring by boat or kayak, this is a top spot for you.

There's a gorgeous little snug on the ground floor in the dining room, where soft leather chairs nestle around a cosy wood burning stove - perfect for those seeking a quiet moment or two, with a television and a selection of books to flick through and views out onto the street and the Aquarium opposite. On the first floor you'll find the main sitting room with two plump sofas and a pouffe, large television and astonishing views out to sea.


The fabulous kitchen, in a lovely shade of Farrow & Ball Inchyra Blue, comes complete with an Aga, eye-catching butcher's block-style island, butler's sink, marble work surface and all the equipment a chef might need to conjure up tasty meals. We adore the window seat - perfect for gazing out to sea or for resting up with a glass of something special, watching the cook at work!

The dining table is to the front of the house next to the snug and wood burner and offers plenty of seating for six people. In addition, there's an outdoor table and chairs plus a barbeque for a spot of alfresco dining.

Sleeping & Bathing

There are three pretty bedrooms, each beautifully decorated in a chic, traditional style in keeping with the heritage of the house. You'll find one king size bedroom on the first floor, with a window looking out over the town. It has an en suite shower room with eye-catching green tiles and is 'Jack and Jill' in style with two doors - one into the bedroom and one out into the hallway. Two further bedrooms can be found on the second floor - to the front is a twin with a bathroom that also has 'Jack and Jill' doors, whilst to the back is a gorgeous king bedroom with duel aspect windows overlooking the sea and a walk-in wardrobe.


There's a large, luxurious bathroom and a spacious shower room - both are 'Jack and Jill', being accessed from two of the bedrooms and the hallway, plus a wet room on the terrace for when you return from the beach.

Outdoor space

There's an idyllic courtyard to the rear of the property overlooking the water and with views across to Polruan - an amazing spot to lounge and watch boats and yachts sail by. It's a walled garden so you're well protected and not overlooked, making it incredibly private and perfect for whiling away the hours. With access to the water, why not hire a mooring so you can bring your boat, or hire a boat nearby. A kayak/paddle board is provided for those wishing to explore the water. In addition, there's a loo and wet room in the garden - perfect for washing sandy feet.


Beaufort House has super-fast fibre broadband, so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.


One dog is very welcome at Beaufort House, we charge £30 per week or short break.


There is private parking available for one car in a secure garage. This is located nearby, so you can pull up in front of the house to unload and then drive on to the car park - a short walk away.

In the Area

Fowey is such an incredible town, that you don't need to step in your car if you don't want to. There's a plethora of fabulous shops and eateries within a short walk - step through the back gate and you'll find yourself on the town quay and right next to Haveners, a lovely glass fronted restaurant perfect for dinner and drinks. Check out Sam's which serves sumptuous seafood in a cool setting (they also have 'Sam's on the Beach' which overlooks the water in nearby Polkerris). The Old Quay House is great for chic eats, whilst there's a host of pubs, tea shops, fish and chip shops and cafes to explore too. Being literally on the water, you might like to try your hand at paddle boarding, kayaking or sailing - you can hire boats from town quay, just outside the garden door. Nearby Readymoney Cove is a lovely sandy beach you can walk to, whilst nearby Par beach is dog friendly all year. For walkers, join the South West Coastal Path and head in either direction for lovely walks with stunning views, whilst you can catch the ferry over to Polruan which has lots of National Trust land to explore or Station wood, which is just on the edge of town.

Further afield is The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project and Charlestown, most recently made famous by 'Poldark' and the stunning South coast. You might like to head North towards Padstow, the Camel Estuary, Rock and Polzeath for wilder beaches - great for surfing.
