We moved to The Old Coach House in March 2009, the previous owner of both the coach house and the carpenters workshop had partially renovated both properties. The cottage was just a shell with a new beautiful slate roof with granite and stone external walls. A year on and we have done a substantial amount of work on the main house, the “gardens” and completely renovated the cottage.
We previously lived in Fowey in a semi -detached town house with river and sea “glimpses” but we all absolutely love our new, peaceful life in the country. Over the past year 8 years as well as working hard on the houses and garden we have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming guests from all over the country to our little peaceful corner of Cornwall.
Steve is an Electrical Engineer in the local mining industry, and I have now retired after working in my family businesses (Fowey Fish and Fowey Wines) for 15 years - choosing a quieter life running the Self Catering, looking after our flock(s) of chickens and riding my lovely horse. We have one son, who is currently at Cardiff Met Uni "reading" Product Design.
