Latest reviews | Events in Fowey | 10 Places to Stay

A bustling seaport and historic town on the mystic South Coast of Cornwall. Was the centre from which the ‘D’ Day landings launched. Today the natural deep water harbour is a haven for yachtsmen, together with the large ships and cruise liners makes this harbour a bustling port. This is an ideal place for painters and photographers with the colourful yachts and sparkling sea. Stroll along the esplanade and drink in the scenery or walk over the cliffs where the path hugs the coast, with sandy beaches to swim, fish or explore the rock pools. Or head inland and climb the narrow lanes and winding cobbled walkways with Medieval cottages, where in the 18th Century was the preferred haunts of the smuggling fraternity. An interesting place to see is St Catherine’s Point at the harbour entrance, during Medieval times St Catherine’s Chapel stood on top of the cliff acting as a lighthouse. The Fort below was built in the reign of Henry V111 to protect Fowey from French invasion, and can be reached by a pretty woodland walk. There is much to see and do in Fowey such as the Lifeboat Station which has been operating some 150 years. Headland gardens, one and half acres of cliff top gardens with the most astounding sea and river views. Historical guided walks that operate from the Town Quay, to an enjoyable fishing trip or river cruise. One of the most famous inhabitants of Fowey was probably Daphne du Maurier and a visit to the Literary Centre next door to the church is a lovely way to spend some time. Or why not indulge in a trip on the passenger ferry that travels across the mouth of the River Fowey to the neighbouring village of Polruan. Drake, Raleigh and Frobisher all sailed from here, now it’s your turn.
