We recently stayed in a very impressive B&B called the Artist's House in Fowey. From contacting the host, Vivien, through a seamless booking, to arriving and enjoying a very relaxing stay; everything went faultlessly. The Artist's House is situated in one of the most charming little towns on the Cornish coast and has one of the most interesting hosts you... More

This was the perfect place to stay for our regular visit to Fowey for Regatta Week. It is very conveniently situated for the town, which is only a short walk down the hill. And there is the additional benefit of being able to park a car. Vivien was very welcoming and provided everything we needed. It felt like home from... More

Vivien warmly welcomed us and made it clear that nothing would be too much trouble. The house is perfectly placed for a short walk straight into the centre of Fowey and Vivien a fount of local knowledge which proved extremely helpful. She provided OS maps and as much tourist information as we could absorb. Breakfast was lovely, out in the... More

Artist's House is a delightful place to stay. Vivien is the most charming and welcoming host for whom nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable and stylish. Breakfast is an absolute delight with delicious home made produce and local ingredients. Artist's House is definitely highly recommended. Thank you Vivien for your excellent hospitality.

We spent 3 excellent nights at Vivien's lovely house in Fowey. We stayed in the Garden room which was bright, airy and very comfortable. Breakfast was served in the garden at a time of our choice except for the one drizzly morning when we ate inside. The food was fantastic, full Cornish and smoked haddock with poached eggs were cooked... More

Its not the best B&B we have stayed in but it was fine and were happy to be there until we dared to honestly answer Vivienne's question as to whether we slept well and than it all changed. Our room was particularly small with a really small double bed with snails crawling over it. We made the mistake of saying... More

We spent 3 nights here to walk the SW coast path. Vivien is a excellent hostess who went out of her way to make us feel very welcome, giving lots of helpful advice about the area, restaurants, bus and ferry services, making sure we had everything we needed. The harbour room was very comfortable and the eco friendly shower did... More
