A fantastic cottage - so well decorated and equipped. The views are fantastic! On a steep hill so might not suit all - but we’re not overly fit and we coped. Don’t be put off by the lack of parking - really nice to be based on a pedestrian only street and the car park is just a short walk up the hill. We ordered a Sainsbury’s delivery for the night we arrived which worked really well. We loved Fowey, we’ll be back!

We have just had a wonderful two week stay at Whistlefish. The location is central within Fowey allowing access to all it offers. The cottage is beautiful and has everything that you need and more. We needed to eat in more than usual due to Covid-19 meaning restaurant availability was limited and the kitchen is really well equipped. Extremely comfortable super king bed in the 3rd floor bedroom. The terrace is a delight with fabulous views over the rooftops to the estuary below. We were very, very happy here!

A great blend of traditional and modern comfort. Lovely views from the terrace with space for six. The cottage is spacious, comfortable and close to the centre of Fowey whilst still feeling peaceful.
We would happily stay here again, and Classic Cottages were very efficient and friendly so the overall holiday experience was excellent. Thank you.

Lovely lovely cottage, Stunning views from outside area. Would love to stay again sometime. On a steep hill so not suitable for anybody with mobility problems.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review - you're right, this lovely property is located on a steep hill so we recommend that it may not be suitable for guests who have limited mobility. We have plenty of other properties that are situated more on the flat so do get in touch with our friendly Sales team on 01326 555555 who'd be delighted to point you in the right direction.

Whistlefish is really great, very tasteful and lovingly made down to the last detail. Everything is perfect and clean! We felt very at home in the house and enjoyed staying there very much.

A very well located cottage on which the owners have obviously lavished a lot of care and attention to detail.

A wonderful cottage well located in a beautiful village.

The cottage is even more beautiful than the photographs. Especially the terrace which is a good size and offers incredible views.

September 2017

Well presented. Access down into Fowey or up to the car park was hard work and not for the faint-hearted.

Thanks for reviewing Whistlefish. There are some steep hills in the village, and as the cottage is set halfway between the village centre and the car park, there will be some effort involved in accessing either, one on the way out and the other on the way back home! We do try to show this in our description and photos, and we think that the fabulous views from the deck make it all worthwhile - we hope you do too. Tanya, Customer Support
