Steeped in history and lined with cobbled streets, Fowey is a charming medieval town that sits aside a spectacular, natural deep-water harbour, providing a nautical gateway to the rest of South Cornwall.
Perched on the western edge of the River Fowey, the port-town has a vibrant maritime history with beautiful Georgian architecture lining the pretty alleyways and boutique bistros. Visitors can stroll hand-in-hand along the harbour front, feasting on the iconic Fowey River Mussels in waterside cafes, before heading on to one of the regions many white sand beaches for an afternoon of sun soaking and splashing in the surf.
Long favoured by the staycation crowd and once home to esteemed English author Daphne du Maurier, Fowey oozes contemporary, coastal chic; where crisp local tipples are sipped to the setting of spectacular Cornish sunsets and bright sunny mornings are spent kayaking upstream to picture-perfect villages for impromptu picnics.
