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.


Yardarm Cottage is a lovely place to stay. My family and I have rented Yardarm Cottage twice and it won’t be the last!Mrs A Cole - 4th January 2019
Very clean. Amazing views, nice and quiet setting.Mrs Elizabeth McPhee - 3rd November 2018
Second visit - really like it.Mr Cliff Hacking - 17th September 2018
You couldn't want for anything more. Beautiful cottage - outstanding views from the windows. The cottage was exactly as the website described it. It was easy to get in to the village for restaurants and shops. The garden was an added bonusMrs Jacqueline Withers - 16th April 2018
Wouldn’t go anywhere else! The highest standards we have encountered anywhere! Never want to leave! Mrs Nicola Maciver - 9th April 2018
It was lovely and we will definitely be back. Mrs A Cole - 3rd January 2018
1st stay, hopefully not the last. Wonderful house, stunning views. Very comfortable. We have done many walks, alas no signs of "Poldark," sampled local lager and cider, ate many cream teas, cakes and pasties. The locals are very friendly and helpful. Thank you :-)Oliver family - 7th October 2017
Third stay in Fowey in 3 years and second at Yardarm. Only regret was that we didn't discover town and cottage 15 years ago! Weather was good - just one wet day. Cottage very thoughtfully and very generously equipped and what views! Ticks all the boxes for us.Corbishley family - 30th September 2017
It's a great house with a wonderful garden. We had all here what we need. Our highlight was Lanhydrock House.Voggel family - 2nd September 2017
Yardarm perfect location, stunning views, comfy beds! Boats trips up the river in perfect sun or showers! Lots going on. 100% have to come again and stay here!C Humphrey - 19th August 2017
Fantastic week. Couldn't fault anything. Thank you. We will be booking again. Mrs Lisa Hart - 20th February 2017
This has been our second visit to Yardarm and once again we have had a fabulous week. This cottage is stunning, the views are perfect, so good in fact that you don't have to leave. We have done a couple of walks, one to Polkerris and one to Polruan, via the Bodinnick ferry. We have had sunshine nearly every day. Home away from home. Everything we could need is here.Hart family - 18th February 2017
Yardarm is a wonderful place in which to stay. It is beautifully equipped with the beast of everything. It has fantastic views. We hope to come back one day.Ms Watmore - 1st October 2016
Another lovely stay at the Yardarm, our third. Just as good as ever and always spotlessly clean. Many thanksMr & Mrs Drew - 24th September 2016
Simple the best!Mrs C Atherton - 6th January 2016
