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.

This is a wonderful house in a wonderful location, we had an absolutely fantastic time. The quality of the design and craftsmanship of the work is or must be one of the best we have ever stayed in for a holiday cottage. Big thanks for the wonderful vacation - we will definitely be returning.Jobelle, Andy & Gabriella - 4th August 2017
What a stunning place! Decorated to such a high standard and being in the centre of Fowey with rooftop and sea views has been divine. Thank you for all the effort / investment put into this property, it has been the best of our Fowey experiences so far. All the best and see you next year!Nicholas, Lindsay & Gillian - 12th July 2017
