Daphne Du Maurier, one of Fowey’s most famous literary residents wrote
...the lights of Polruan and Fowey. Ships anchored, looking up through blackness. The jetties, white with clay. Mysterious shrouded trees, owls hooting, the splash of muffled oars in lumpy water…. All I want is to be at Fowey. Nothing and no one else.

Her words captivate the allure that Fowey has always offered and if you have not yet discovered this part of Cornwall, you don’t know what you’re missing! Fowey designated as an area of outstanding beauty is located on the south coast of Cornwall between Looe and Mevagissey, lying at the mouth of the river that bears its name. Historically the port was an important commercial centre and the town still retains its character from times gone.
With historic architecture, narrow winding streets, incredible views and the bustle of the harbour, Fowey is authentic Cornwall at it’s finest. A great place to relax, unwind and explore. If you’re also looking for a fun packed stay, Fowey and surrounding areas have evolved into an all year round destination. Lose yourself while sampling spectacular beaches, water sports, walking, exciting daytrips, restaurants and local produce, with so much to do you’ll be back for more!
