Fowey is situated on the west bank of the River Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall between Looe and Mevagissey. Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Fowey estuary with its large, deep water harbour is a magnet for the yachting crowd.
A vibrant maritime history comes to life as you walk down the narrowing streets of the old town where medieval and Georgian buildings cast shadows over each other. Fowey is also home to many small, independent shops mainly found on the main Fore Street.
The Fowey estuary has to be one of the most attractive and unspoilt parts of Britain's south coast. The peaceful river is surrounded by miles of lovely open countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust.
