No. 5 Old Stations Masters

No. 5 Old Stations Masters

Adding to our established luxury self-catering properties we are excited to introduce No. 5 Old Station Master House, a charming 2-bedroom apartment with private parking set within the beautifully and sensitively restored former railway house within the historic, maritime town of Fowey.

Located only 100 yards from the water edge, sit and admire Daphne Du Maurier’s home ‘Ferryside’ and watch the traffic of ships, boats, kayaks pass you by. A five-minute flat and scenic walk along the river and you will reach the town with its vibrant high street of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

This stylish bolthole is tucked away on the first floor of this historic building. Perfect for couples or families of 4, equipped with everything you need and more to make a break away just that little bit more memorable.

A small hallway leads into the opulent and stylishly panelled Master Bedroom with its King Size, hand cast & polished nickel bedstead. The supremely comfortable organic and natural fibre mattress and topper will ensure the best night’s sleep, complimented by high quality Egyptian cotton linen and a cosy Welsh wool blanket. The marble topped vintage bedside tables and adjustable wall lights make handy bedfellows for downtime reading, whilst the Roberts Radio and 32-inch Smart TV allows for catching up with your favourite radio show or ‘mustsee’ series. A built-in wardrobe and dressing table with drawer space provide plenty of room for all your holiday packing.

The “Snug Bedroom” with its Twin Cast Iron bedsteads and reminiscent of an old railway carriage is an inviting space not only to retreat to slumber but also to while away an hour or so reading or to play board games. Find all the traditional favourites like Monopoly and Scrabble in our old Travelling Trunk, alongside wooden Brio trainsets and our dressing up basket. Younger children will love to explore and find lots of amazing toys to play with.
The family bathroom is sleek and simple; relax and unwind in the bath or wake yourself up in the shower that sits over. The heated towel rail will keep your towels and the beautiful bathrobes we supply warm and snuggly. The magnificent mirror above the sink draws in light and the deep shelf means there is plenty of room to keep all your toiletries at hand.

The exquisite yet homely open plan living area retains all of its historical charm yet has all of today’s modern comforts. The fabulous, comfy leather sofa & armchair and 40 Inch Smart TV are complimented by local vintage finds including our fun and quirky military brass drum coffee table and stunning antique chandelier. Help yourself to our honesty Gin Cupboard stocked with 3 local gins and Fevertree Tonics – vintage glassware, readymade ice cubes and a complimentary lemon in the Welcome Hamper means you’ll have all you need for a cocktail or two!

The contemporary kitchen has everything you need to cook up a Cornish Feast to serve up on the fabulous round oak table that easily seats 4 – or for something a bit simpler hang out at the breakfast bar for a proper coffee and a croissant whilst planning the days escapades. The apartment is fully Wi-Fi Ready so if you need to say in touch with the outside world you can.

Outside you’ll find the property is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and a private communal lawned area with timber bench where you can sit and catch a glimpse of the river or spot a buzzard circling above from the nearby woodland. No. 5 even has its own “Beach Hut” stocked with games and seaside equipment like buckets and spades, crabbing kits, body boards and snorkelling gear to borrow. Readymoney Beach with its rockpools and swimming pontoon is within walking distance and the quayside in town only 5 minutes away.
