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.

    A nice apartment in a lovely setting at the edge of Fowey. Very clean and well appointed inside a great little indoor pool set in well kept gardens.

    This is our second stay at the Carnethic Penthouse and I don't think it will be our last. It is a lovely, large apartment with all home comforts. It has the added bonus of a covered / open air swimming pool, sauna, hot tub. The sliding roof means it can be used all year round which is great if you go later or earlier in the year. I should also mention the large private garden too. I would have no reservations recommending Carnethic as a holiday stay. The location is ideal, all of Cornwalls main attractions are within easy reach by car. It is really quiet as it is situated on the outskirts of Fowey. As for the town itself, it is approx. 15 minute walk and is a nice little place. Plenty of places to eat and drink and has very nice views across the estuary. The only thing lacking is a decent sized supermarket. However, a trip into nearby St Austell and there are several of the large chains to choose from.

    Lovely place to stay, tv in main bedroom did not work well, window did not shut properly, second bedroom blind broken, not ideal for those who can not walk too far. Pool was too cold to use but a lovely addition.

    Quality of property did not feel as good as other properties we have booked at similar prices. The Penhouse gave a superior image and expectation that the property did not live up to. Disappointed with detail, many lightbulb so we're out and not working, TVs did not work and items were heavily worn giving a tired look. Dishwasher did not fit into the kitchen properly so the plinth fell away when in use, this problem had clearly been evident for some time. Velux blinds had numerous dead flies, which had clearly been there some time. Sinks particularly did not have working plugs in the master bedroom. The attention to detail expected with the standard of property was poor.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your feedback, it helps us maintain the standard of the apartment. I apologise for the failed bulbs and the dishwasher plinth - both these issues have been rectified, as has the sink plug. As a result of your comment we have instigated a new regime to ensure that the Velux blinds are checked at each changeover, replaced the existing halogen bulbs with LEDs and we are replacing both the bedroom TVs. Once again thanks for your comments, we hope to welcome you again in the future
