Information on Cottage Holidays in Fowey

You will find numerous quaint shops and unspoilt beaches in Fowey, plenty of places for meals out or chat with the locals over a quiet drink in one of Fowey's pubs.

The port of Fowey has existed since pre-Roman times when ships exported cargos of tin that was mined throughout Cornwall. The old castles still stand guarding the entrance to the harbour. They were built following an attack by a Spanish fleet in 1380 and once housed the mechanism for raising and lowering a protective chain barrier stretched between them.  

Today, Fowey harbour is used by fleets of colourful private yachts and pleasure boats. Hundreds of ships from all over the world visit each year which helps create a lively atmosphere.  There are numerous quiet creeks and waterways to explore by boat. This part of Cornwall has been a source of inspiration for authors such as Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and local girl Dame Daphne du Maurier who lived at Ferryside at Bodinnick for many years.

A passenger ferry links Polruan with Fowey. Picturesque Polruan is worth a visit for its narrow winding streets, historic buildings, olde worlde shops and country lanes. 

For walkers and those who enjoy a ramble, The Hall Walk, Saints Way and South West Coast Path are popular walks around Fowey, but for the adventurous you will discover much beauty and pleasure around every corner.

Book a Fowey cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Cornwall on holiday.
