My husband Neal
and I live in Warwickshire with our two
children. I have been going to Fowey since before
we were even dating; we used to work together and he sold me a
holiday in River Views! (which
his parents then owned).
We have been regular visitors to
Fowey over the years, whether
it's the excitement of Regatta week or a quieter break in the winter
months. Our children have come to love Fowey too
and enjoy the simple pleasures of building sand-castles,
crabbing and rock-pooling. We all love to get on the water by kayak or
boat and explore the river, spotting the various birdlife and even
occasional dolphins and seals! We also enjoy the various treats Fowey
has to offer Ė delicious Cornish ice-creams and cream teas, and fun
evenings at Samís.
My husbandís parents put River Views on the
market in 2009 and we thought this would be a great opportunity to
keep it in the family (it was built in 1892 by my husbandís
great-great-grandfather). The lounge was originally my husbandís
bedroom when he was growing up. We
love to visit Fowey as a
family and hope to do so for many years to come.
is a very special town, which has become much more fashionable in
recent years (with a few famous residents now). It has still retained
its original charm with narrow winding streets and river life. After a
great day exploring Fowey and the surrounding area, we love to relax
and watch the boats on the river; we think River Views is the best
spot in town with activity all year long.
