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

Carnethic Penthouse is a stylish apartment, set in the award-winning gardens of a Regency country house on the edge of Fowey on Cornwall’s south coast. The interior boasts an exceptionally spacious open plan living/dining room with a gas log-effect fire, creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. At one side of the room there are views towards the sea, and at the other there are French doors leading onto the barbecue terrace. There is a separate study/quiet reading area off the living room for guests who want some quiet time away from the TV. The kitchen is well equipped and boasts a range cooker, American style fridge/freezer with built-in ice maker, granite work surfaces and tiled floor. There are two wonderful bedrooms, one with a super kingsize bed, Freeview TV and an en-suite bathroom with a shower attachment over a large bath. The second bedroom has sumptuous twin beds and an en-suite shower room.
It has shared use of a heated 15m swimming pool, sauna and changing room. The all year round 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 is well situated for walkers to enjoy the South Coast Path or for families to stroll to Readymoney Cove, the nearby beach, which is a short walk away. The apartment 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 and galleries, visiting the many 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, Fowey Literary Festival is held in the town. There are many historical properties worth visiting in the area as well as the delightful fishing ports of Mevagissey, Padstow and Polperro with their narrow alleys and small 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 and restaurant ¾ mile.

    Really lovely cottage. Well fitted out, with a nice big kitchen, massive fridge, great bathrooms. Just really nice. Fowey is very nice, the various tea rooms and pubs went down well. Probably a 10-15 min wander but bear in mind it's all up on the return when deciding on puddings! Would happily stay again, very nice.

    We had a fantastic time at Carnethic House. I grew up in this part of the world and it was great to visit family and many of our favourite parts of the County. The flat itself is so beautifully equipped and great for families. Thank you for such a fabulous week.
