The property

Panacea's elevated spot above the estuary in the heart of Fowey makes an exceptional holiday home for family, friends and couples. The accommodation is a fabulous fusion of design-crush contemporary flair and luxe period charm. Paces from restaurants, wine bars, inns, galleries and boutiques, this Victorian mid terrace grants a spacious and comfy interior for a mix of experiences; optimum tranquility and relaxation with coastal and recreational adventures and attractions on the doorstep!

Steal away from the beautifully styled sitting room with bay window and meander through the narrow lanes to the centre of Fowey, a resort famed for its annual extravaganzas; Regatta Week; one of the UK's best loved sailing events, the Daphne du Maurier Festival and the Christmas Market. The deep water harbour and estuary form part of a spectacular coastline; take to the water in a hired canoe and explore the secret creeks, hop aboard a pleasure boat or enjoy a fishing excursion. Discover secluded beaches, ramble the woodlands or spy the panoramic seascapes across the bay from the coast path. The water taxi to the charismatic fishing villages of Polruan and Mevagissey makes a fun adventure and the Bodinnick car ferry lands at Looe and Polperro - ideal for lunch and a scenic drive through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The sandy beach at Readymoney Cove to the south of Fowey is sheltered by cliffs on the town side and St Catherine's Castle on the other. Beaches at Polkerris and Par Sands are also firm favourites.

Panacea boasts superbly presented accommodation over three floors, with views to the estuary. A wood burner for fireside gatherings in the open-plan sitting room and a generous dining area make a great social space, and leads to the uber smart kitchen; a true heaven for cooks. With three indulgently restful bedrooms in soothing, pared-back palettes - one with an en-suite shower room, and a chic family bathroom with a rain-head shower, it ensures creature-comforts are a given. The raised front terrace makes a divine little space for an evening tipple, as the boat life tootles past.
