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.


Lovely property, fabulous upstairs lounge with far reaching views. Couldn't help but sit in the window and just "look". Car parking a bonus & great location. Will hope to return.Ms Kirsty Jenkins - 30th October 2018
Very happy with the choice of this property. Great location for us, weil presented and equipped.Mr Craig Abbs - 17th October 2018
A truly delightful home from home, with wonderful views over the estuary. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautifully furnished and charming house and would definitely recommend it to others who might be looking to stay in the area.Dr Margaret Guise - 20th June 2018
The layout of the property was such that we could enjoy views of the river from the upstairs living room, and we really appreciated the garage which was much more convenient than parking in a town car park.Mr Michael Freeman - 29th May 2018
