Elegant in design, this beautiful period four-storey home projects class and style, combined with luxurious and comfortable furnishings throughout. Overlooking some of the finest views that Fowey has to offer you can leisurely perch within the window seat and watch the boats set sail toward the mouth of the estuary and to the sea beyond. Aldford House has a truly unique, nautical feel with its Lesley Holmes artwork boldly in place; for those of you that are curious this talented artist was the illustrator for James Herriot’s literature. Fowey town, accessible to most parts of Cornwall, possesses a wealth of charm, it offers plenty to keep you occupied with a selection of fine restaurants to choose from. The local, sheltered sandy beach at Readymoney Cove is within easy walking distance or why not while away the hours browsing the shops combined with lunch on the quay…. The foot ferry takes you across the river to Polruan where you can pick up the coastal path to Lantic Bay - don’t forget to pack your camera, these views are off the scale! Whatever your pursuit, we are sure you will enjoy your stay at Aldford House and wish to return again and again and again!

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.
