Unlike many holiday house owners in Fowey, I live locally and would be there to welcome you, to answer any questions and offer any advice of things that may interest you, but we will leave you to yourselves.
10 Station Road was originally two houses, No. 8 & No. 10 in the 19th century. When we bought the property, No. 10 still had the shop front window for the household hardware shop it was at the time of Queen Victoria's Jubilee. The downstairs office in the yard was a ship insurers that serviced the ships in the Port of Fowey. In the II WW, the property was the headquarters for the Canadian forces that left Fowey for the D-Day landings, the Nissan hut and the gantry used to launch small boats were still there.
Over 35 years we have restored the house, turning it into one. It has been a regular family holiday home and was lived in for a year by my son, his wife and their eldest child was born here. It is still used by various family members at times.
