Spent 2 nights here back in May. The Artists House was a lovely base from which to explore Fowey. Vivien was so helpful and friendly with suggestions of things to do. She even invited us to join her in a day trip to a festival in nearby Lostwithiel. A very memorable and enjoyable stay. Loved Fowey. Highly recommended.

Two nights in the Artists House, en suite room with a sea view, very comfortable bed and quiet surroundings. Our host was the lovely Vivien, full of local knowledge and advice of who, what and where. First class breakfast with all tastes catered for, quality Corniche produce.

My wife and I just spent a lovely three nights here. Vivien was extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough, drying our clothes for us since the weather wasn't cooperating and laying on an absolutely smashing breakfast. Great place to stay and a delightful room, very close to the centre of Fowey.

I would recommend, and have recommended a stay at The Artist's House. Everything you need to make your stay in Fowey even more enjoyable. Vivien is extremely welcoming and provides a personal service. Our stay was a particularly wet one at times, Vivien was on hand to ensure our coats etc were dried and warm. Her local knowledge is invaluable...

We spent four very comfortable nights in the Garden room, not large but had everything we needed plus extras like fresh flowers and lovely pictures and Vivien's wall-hanging. Breakfasts were wonderful - we had the full Cornish, the smoked fish and poached egg, and the smoked salmon and scrambled egg, all complemented by home made bread, jams and award-winning marmalade....

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed a very friendly welcome and comfortable room with everything we needed, including information about the local area. We followed Vivien's suggestion for a day out by train from nearby Par to Falmouth which was very easy and meant a car free day out. Breakfast each morning set us up for the day and...

Fantastic location near centre of Fowey, handy free parking. Lovely landlady who made us extremely welcome and was very interesting to talk to - amusing and knowledgeable. Delightful room with view of harbour, tastefully decorated in Vivien's own exuberant style. Excellent cooked breakfasts, quality ingredients and good choice. All this coupled with very reasonable prices - a very lucky find!...

This B&B has a few mixed reviews, yes the rooms are small, and the Garden Room has a Double, not Queen bed, and host Vivian might be a bit eccentric, but not so much different to me. The house is in a quiet location and we slept very well. Vivian is an accommodating host, and breakfast, within reason is almost...

“The Artists House has only 2 rooms, both on the upper floor, and both with ensuite. We had the garden room, which looks out over the garden, I expect that the other room has a majestic view over the town and harbour.”
