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've had the most lovely summer holiday enjoying Fowey Regatta and more. The house is just perfect - every little detail so well considered. It has been our comfortable haven after a day exploring Cornwall's finest beaches/cafes/walks. I can't think of anything to suggest to improve the house - it really is perfect! With ThanksMr B - Guest Book Comment - 25th August 2018

Wonderful property!Andrew Parry - 2nd July 2018
Lovely House. Readymoney Cove wonderful on a sunny day. Lots of good places to eat in Fowey. The Lugger has the best crab sandwiches and will give them to you to take away and have at the beach. Mrs G - Guest Book Comment - 23rd June 2018
Had the most amazing time here! House is beautiful and the attnetion to detail with all the decoration is lovely. Such a great location too. So Easy to get anywhere and lovely beaches in easy reach. We will be coming back! Thank you!Mr B - Guest Book Comment - 16th June 2018
We have thoroughly enjoyed our week in this well-appointed and well-stocked house. Beautiful views over the harbour and a short if steep walk down to the town makes this house an ideal base for a family with tween/teenage children who are old enough to go off on their own.Mrs S Newbold - 12th August 2017
