Local Area

If you haven't yet discovered Fowey, you've got a treat in store.  Full of multicoloured cottages, perched on the hillsides leading down to the sea, this little fishing town has lots to tempt visitors. 

There is an entrancing collection of unique local shops and boutiques, along with harbourside cafes, pubs which will give you a hearty welcome and a good atmosphere, and restaurants offering tempting local produce.  If you want a unique insight into the local species in these waters, you could visit Fowey Aquarium, whose residents include specimens brought in by local fishermen.

If you're a fan of Daphne du Maurier, you may want to visit the Literary Centre, which gives information and exhibits about the author and her life and work.  There is also the Fowey Festival of Words and Music, held in May, in which du Maurier, and many other authors, artists and musicians, are celebrated.  Another great spectacle is the Fowey Royal Regatta, held in August.

Fowey lies within one of the many Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall, and the backdrop of the surrounding countryside, with its tidal creeks, rolling fields and rugged cliffs, will make you want to return here again and again.


We had a brilliant stay, the facilities were very good. The layout was very user friendly and for The end of October the house was always well heated and the gas fire definitely added to the cosy atmosphere. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower in the ensuite was lovely warm and powerful. We will definitely be returning at some point. Thank you for making our holiday wonderful.

Thank you for the honeymoon treats :)Miss Julie Collins - 15th October 2018
What a lovely place to be based while exploring Cornwall! We had never been to this part of the world and everything new. The Counting House offered a beautiful relaxing space to re-group everyday. Location on edge of the old town makes it easy to park and then explore. Found our ancestors resting place in St. Mabyn and learned a bit more about the history of the area. Hope there will be an opportunity to return. Thank youMs Elizabeth Conover - 28th September 2018
I have stayed in the Counting House twice now, for one week with my primary school aged children and then two years later for one week with my elderly parents. All of us have loved it, a nice house with a lovely feel in one of Cornwall's most beautiful towns. Would definitely stay there again, although as we live in Australia it is a long commute :-)Ms Rebecca Logue - 18th August 2018
Having visited and stayed in Fowey a few times now this has been our favourite place to stay. Lovely property and great location. Many Thanks Mr Steve Austin - 18th August 2018
A delightfully warm spacious house - an ideal retreat. Very happy to discover that we could use Netflix on the TV, when we could take advantage of the open kitchen/lounge area. The decoration/furnishings are inviting and look as though they have selected with thought and sensitivity. Would stay again! Thank youMs Louise Walker - 11th August 2018
Very well equipped and cosy cottage. Mrs Christiane Oswald - 6th August 2018
Fantastic stay in Fowey. We'd never visited this lovely place. We tended to go to the North Coast of Cornwall. Thoroughly recommend Sams Restaurant. We felt very much at home in this lovely house. Lucky with the weather too!Andy, Stella, Rea and Nancy - 28th October 2017

Quirky house in lovely location.Mrs emma fooks - 21st August 2017
We have been coming to Cornwall and specifically Bodinnick and Fowey for 20 years now. The Counting House was the best property we have stayed in and we will book again. Ideally located, the house itself was a treat. Well furnished and with excellent Wi-Fi.Mr Matt Deakin - 17th April 2017
