Description

Enjoy the opportunity to stay in a penthouse apartment, set in the gardens of a Regency country house with shared use of a swimming pool.

Carnethic Penthouse is set in the award-winning gardens of a Regency country house on the edge of Fowey on Cornwall’s south coast. The holiday property was awarded the VisitEngland 5 Star Gold Award 2012/3 and it enjoys shared use of a heated 15m swimming pool, sauna and changing room. The pool lies within beautiful gardens, set to lawn with shrubs, trees and plants and the pool house has a retractable glass roof, which can be opened to enjoy the sun or closed to maintain a perfect environment to enjoy the warm water of the pool.
The Penthouse lies on the edge of historic Fowey, a picturesque town with quaint, narrow streets as well as steps and alleys that lead down to the quays and estuary. Visitors can enjoy browsing around the array of shops, restaurants and pubs and sampling the local seafood specialities. The town hosts an annual regatta, and sailing enthusiasts can take advantage of boat hire and a sailing school. In May each year, the renowned Daphne du Maurier Festival of Arts and Literature is held in Fowey and St Austell Bay, celebrating the life and works of the author and the association of her work with Cornwall and Fowey. The delightful fishing port of Polperro is well worth a visit, with its whitewashed cottages lining narrow alleys and an assortment of shops selling local crafts and freshly-caught seafood. Not to be missed by any visitor to Cornwall is a visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the educational Eden Project.
Sea fishing, diving, sailing, kayaking, dolphin spotting and river trips can all be arranged in the town. Shops 500 yards, pub ¾ mile.

Two flights of steps from entrance foyer. Spacious living/dining room with wooden floor, views to the sea and access to roof terrace. Spacious well-equipped kitchen with range (for cooking), granite work surfaces, breakfast table and tiled floor. Study/reading area. Two double bedrooms, both with 6ft zip and link bed and TV; one with en-suite bathroom with shower attachment and toilet, one with en-suite shower room and toilet. Separate cloakroom.

    From the photos we probably expected a little more. The 'balcony' is a little small to say least and a bit of a wind funnel. I suspect that in the summer it require air conditioning. As it is basically a roof void the heat builds up, even in May. But don't let that put you off the grounds are great, the pool pleasant and the location excellent. ps If using sat nav and post code it takes you to the back door which can easily be missed!

    Obviously we enjoyed our holiday as we added an extra night. For your information some things that need sorted: 4 lights in kitchen didn't work the kitchen fan extractor didn't seem to work the second en suite extra fan didn't work batteries missing from some devices it was getting warmer and almost too hot at night for summer months needs a fan or 2. These are not complaints just some observations.

    Superb apartment that is very spacious. All conveniences of home. The pool is a real bonus no matter what the weather. The water was a very comfortable temperature. I did not understand some of the comments that were left in the comments book in the apartment by previous visitors. This is a self catering holiday so you should not expect things that you get in a hotel such as toiletries. Take your own soap and shampoo and your all set. I think the best recommendation I could give is to say that we would definitely return to the penthouse at Carnethic House. As for the location it is perfect for a visit to Cornwall, all of the main resorts and attractions are within easy travelling distances. However, if it is your first visit to Cornwall plan for your journey to take a little longer as it is nearly all A / B roads. 5 stars from us.

    We stayed in the Penthouse is was wonderful. The location is excellent as you can leave your car at the apartment and walk everywhere else. Overall an excellent short break.

    The apartment felt tired and unloved. and need a little money and TLC to bring it up to what I would consider a luxury standard

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We do work hard to maintain The Penthouse as a high quality retreat for our guests and take note of feedback. It does seem that, during your stay, there was a communications failure between yourself and our property manager. Therefore, we have already offered you some compensation as a gesture of goodwill. We note that you have re-booked the apartment for two weeks next August and hope that you have a very pleasant holiday.
