We have stayed twice at Ashley House as a couple in the first floor apartment, during December 2011 and again in June 2013. The accommodation is 5* spotlessly clean with thoughtful touches, nice toiletries and a truly 'welcoming' basket of milk, coffee, bread, butter, biscuits and treats. Similarly to other reviewers, we have eaten out in Fowey due to the...

We stayed at Aldford House. It was amazing. The location could not be better - a short stroll to all the shops and restaurants, but not close to anything noisy. The place was spotlessly clean, and the decor to a high taste level. The beds super comfy, bath and shower excellent (with fab bath products included) and to boot, sea/harbour...

For the personal welcome, the cream tea (I still dream of those scones) the stylish accommodation and the really superb breakfasts, I cannot recommend it enough. Add to this the location and you have the perfect holiday retreat. Thank you Elizabeth and Nigel for opening your home so professionally.

All we can say is "wow!!" This B&B is better than some 5 star hotels we've been to. The hospitality and service is fantastic. Bishops House is a beautifully and lovingly restored mansion and the views over the harbour are stunning. We were in room 1 and it was huge with windows on 3 sides. We were totally spoiled and...

This is possibly the most beautiful home we have ever been in, so what a wonderful start to our week in Cornwall. The furniture, furnishings & fittings were elegant & tasteful. The setting delightful. (I thing that the internet photos do not do it justice.) Best described as a Luxury boutique B&B. Very central location & a good base for...

We stayed in the Bishops Residence for 3 nights during August. The location was ideal, overlooking the estuary and just a couple of minutes walk to the main street where there was a great choice of places to eat and drink. The house was absolutely beautiful throughout. Our room (the green room on the top floor) was fantastic, comfortable with...

We wanted to go away with family for a birthday weekend. We arrived at the Bishops House boutique guest house and it didn't disappoint. Finished to the highest standards and amazing views of Fowey. Elizabeth the owner welcomed us with an afternoon tea on the veranda, which was a lovely touch and the view across the estuary was beautiful, it...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bishop's House is part of the Fowey Residences group of guest house and self catering accommodation based in the centre of Fowey and overlooking the estuary. Bishop's House was built in 1802 and has been fully restored. This gracious house was once the summer home of the Bishop's of Truro. Elizabeth and Nigel Wagstaff take great pleasure in making your stay in their home very special. You will be greeted with a Cornish cream tea; your en-suite accommodation will offer you wonderful views in luxurious surroundings. Breakfast is a feast of locally produced Cornish foods. If you prefer a self catering holiday, the Ashley House Apartments are a luxury option. A generous hamper provides your first breakfast and you sink into heavenly beds with goose down duvets and pillows. The pleasures of Fowey are a very short stroll away. ... more   less
