The open plan living room on the ground floor has ample space for relaxing, cooking and dining. Neutral hues create a relaxed feel and the wood burner makes for cosy evenings. The fabulous kitchen is a delight – gather around the island for dinner prep with wine after a day out on the river.There are two bedrooms on the first floor; a light and bright master with bay window overlooking the river and en-suite shower room plus a further king size room which can be presented as a twin on request. The vast family bathroom, also on the first floor has a bath and separate shower cubicle. On the second floor another twin room has little alcove with bench seat overlooking the river – a great place to escape to and chill out.
There is a little terrace at the front of the house with bistro table for two but why not get out and enjoy the town with plenty of cafes and restaurants offering alfresco options.
If you don’t know Fowey then your first visit will be a real treat! Discover the winding lanes, boutique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants dotted around this pretty town where pastel coloured buildings tumble down to the waterside.Panacea sits towards the northern side of the town just far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Potter into town and settle down in one of the waterside cafes or pubs to watch the buzz of yachts and other craft coming and going. There is a sandy beach at Readymoney Cove to the south of the town, a gem of a place, it is sheltered by cliffs on one side and St Catherine's Castle on the other. For more serious beach goers, Polkerris and Par Sands offer a wider expanse of sand! Fowey is host to many events throughout the year including Regatta Week; one of the UK's best loved sailing events, the Daphne du Maurier Festival and a great Christmas Market. Of course there are all sorts of river trips and cruises on offer plus a water taxi to Polruan and Mevagissey. While away the hours on a kayak or canoe trip - this stretch of the river Fowey was apparently the inspiration for Wind in the Willows so look out for wildlife along the riverbank.
