Serendipity And The Shell Seekers
These two beautifully restored cottages lie in the glorious surroundings of Fowey, a fascinating village which has something for guests of all ages. You will be spoilt for choice between the two retreats, each designed in a luxurious fashion, divided between a cosy lounge, dining area, and a modern kitchen, which can be enjoyed morning through to evening. Whether you are gathering with your loved ones around the fire, or settling down for dinner after the sunsets, you will look forward to returning here, taking in the immaculate décor and its hidden charm.
Serendipity (Ref. 984523) boasts an interesting history once upon a time selling and exhibiting the famous Shallow Pool dolls.
Shell Seekers (Ref: 984525) benefits from a lovely outside area to the rear, a tiered garden on a number of different levels; the top most of which has lovely views up the river.
The properties are only a short walk (approx 5 min) into the centre of town, whilst the harbour, shops and restaurants rest in the opposite direction, and only a minute’s walk is the Caffa Mill Car park and the Car and Passenger Ferry over to Bodinnick. The quaint cottages and a mixture of medieval and Georgian historic buildings resting upon cobbled walkways all add to the enchanting atmosphere. With a fine selection of quality shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs, Fowey really is a vibrant destination. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Originally a museum, and the Shallowpool Doll Shop and Exhibition, Serendipity was once known for its window displays, and collectors pieces, revered for their detailed modelling and outfits.
Today, the hideaway offers a high standard of contemporary living in a centuries old building, with a beautiful open-plan living area, freshly renovated to promote relaxation and calmness.
From the exquisite white kitchen to the almost seaside themed lounge/diner, you will never want to leave the soothing set-up, except to cosy up in the lovely king-size bedroom.

About the location
Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles
This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
