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

The room was amazing, the host Vivien was fantastic. The bed was perfect to sleep in. Great 3 night stay, would definitely go back! The breakfast was served at your convenience every morning and was all homemade.

I have recently returned from a fabulous week in Fowey staying at Vivien's B&B, Artist's House. It rates as one of the best holidays I have had. My harbour room was welcoming and comfortable, with the most beautiful view across the estuary, following a 5 hour drive. I was worried from reading previous comments regarding the bed and shower, however... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to enjoy Mooching around Fowey and to visit the lost gardens of Heligan (highly recommended). Vivien is a congenial host who looks after you well. Lots of advice where needed. Got some croissants in specially for us too! The room was okay, though the mattress on the hard side. The shower over the bath... More

We stayed for three nights at the Artist's House. It is a real gem with the warmest hospitality you could wish for, excellent bedrooms and possibly the best breakfasts we have enjoyed whilst travelling all over the world - home-made jams and marmalades, local honey and yoghurt, home-baked breads (including a superb sourdough), fresh eggs from the hens in the...

My wife and I along with my 94 year old mother in law had 4 very pleasant nights staying with Vivien Prideaux. She could not have made us more welcome. Her b&b is quirky in the nicest possible way and her hospitality first class. Very comfortable rooms, splendid breakfast and wonderful views across the Fowey estuary from the front bedroom.... More

We stayed two nights in the garden room which was very nicely decorated, very clean with ample space and storage. The en-suite was also very nice, clean and modern. The breakfast was delightful with so much on offer to suit all tastes. The bread is home baked, the eggs freshly laid and the jams home made and everything else locally... More

We stayed here for two nights in the Harbour View room. The bedroom was nicely decorated and the ensuite was fitted to a high standard. The breakfast was delicious, and you could have whatever you wanted, cooked to order. To get in to Fowey town centre, it was only about a 5-10 minute walk, so it was very convenient. Also,... More
