Fowey, Cornwall


Fowey is a delightful and picturesque town on the south coast and sits on the west bank of the River Fowey.   The area is perfect for those who wish to explore Cornwall.   It offers great walks has many of the country’s best gardens.

Doomsday Book Recording

Fowey is surrounded by beautiful countryside and delightful walks and is steeped in history.  Penventinue (pronounced ‘Penn-ertinny’), was recorded in the Domesday book.   From the cottages it is only a 25 minute walk into Fowey and around £6 for a taxi. 

Coastal Walk to Pub

We love the coastal walk from the cottages to Golant.   The famous Fisherman’s Arms pub  in the village serves excellent food and has great views.  

Shops and Restaurants

The town of Fowey is very unique.  It has not been commercialized unlike many harbour towns in Cornwall so it is packed with individual shops, including an excellent Butcher and Deli Kittows 

It has old old fashioned pubs, modern pubs, coffee shops and a selection of fantastic restaurants all with great views of the River.  Local seafood and farm produce are available everywhere making it a real Foodie haven.  

Fowey Harbour View

The Eden Project

The wonderul Eden Project is a 15 minute drive from the cottages.  The locals often visit to see the new projects taking place.  If you are here during the months of June & July we can recommend the Eden Sessions 

Some huge acts come to play at this very unique venue,   The Biomes are a breathtaking back drop for any band.  The concerts are well managed and with only 1500 tickets available it makes it quite exclusive.

History and Places of Interest to visit

If you are interested in the history of the region there is a range of very good attractions nearby.  There are beautifully preserved country estates like Lanhydrock which is a 20 minute drive away or St Catherine’s Castle on a cliff overlooking Ready Money cove in Fowey.   There is also the Church and Town Hall with a Museum.

Surfing, Sailing and Water Sports

For anyone wanting to try Sailing or another Water Sport the Maritime Centre offers a variety of sailing and powerboating courses and experiences and the nearby north coast (40 minutes) provides excellent surfing through  the many surf schools there.   Fistral Surf School are really good and well located.  The English Surf School on the stunning Towan beach is also incredibly good.
