Fowey Cottages

Situated at the mouth of the River Fowey, this ancient town formed around the natural harbour as a trading port with merchant houses along the waterfront, some of which are now holiday cottages in Fowey. There are plenty of opportunities to get out on the water for sea fishing or pleasure boating with guided river trips, kayaking, canoeing and coasteering.Read more

Historically there was much smuggling and piracy in the area, but as trade diverted to Plymouth, Fowey became more of a fishing port, although china clay is still exported from here today. The harbour is appealing to various seagoing vessels, with many yachts sheltering in the bay and often large cruise liners bringing visitors to the town.

There is a good mix of shops and places to eat, with something for everyone. The Daphne du Maurier Festival (now called the Fowey Festival of Words and Music) is held here each May, when the town comes alive with literary inspiration and the Royal Regatta is worth a visit.

The main beach for Fowey holidaymakers is Readymoney Cove, but Whitehouse and Polridmouth Cove are also nearby. You can walk between them if you're a keen walker - there are coast path stomps, estuary meanders, leisurely woodland strolls or town tours to wear you out before heading back to your Fowey cottage.
