A picturesque harbour with stunning estuary views as well as a traditional Cornish town atmosphere make Fowey holidays the quintessential seaside getaway in south Cornwall.
Located on the west bank of the Fowey Estuary in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the town’s harbour is a bustling hive of activity during the summer months where its sheltered waters become home to a plethora of boats of all shapes and sizes. Visitors can enjoy a meander through the narrow, winding streets of the old town, soaking up the atmosphere of authentic village life with a variety of boutique-style shops and galleries to peruse as well as a selection of restaurants and eateries to choose from. The town has an interesting maritime history as well as an illustrious literary connection with the like of Daphne du Maurier, Rosamunde Pilcher and many more including the successful Poldark series, and there are frequent ferries to Polruan, a fascinating village with sweeping views from the top of Polruan Hill.
Enjoy a walk along the estuary and experience the diversity of bird life in the area or take a short drive to the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
