A fantastic house in a lovely setting. Comfortable, well-equipped and spacious with fantastic views over the estuary. The position on the hill and car parking for one vehicle only means some walking on the steep hill into town is inevitable.

Cottage is like home from home as all amenities are there. The garden is splendid with the new garden furniture. Gorgeous kitchen diner for nice family meals. Views are exceptional.

The house was amazingly well equipped, it was comfy and we had lots of space. It was incredibly clean and the little touches on the house, made it even more special. Parking the car was a bit tight, but ok once you got used to it. The walk down and up the hill to the passenger ferry was good exercise! The shops and restaurants in Fowey are fab.

I could not more strongly recommend Hill House. Hide
