The town of Fowey has a unique unspoilt ancient charm which holds a special fascination for visitors of all ages. Fowey is a very special place, once the home of Daphne du Maurier, the town itself is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Fowey has much to offer with an attraction for everyone; families, walkers, sailors and dog lovers alike are drawn to the natural harbour, stunning views over the river, Fowey estuary, beautiful beaches and coves of the south Cornwall coast.
If the many walks, beautiful coves, stunning scenery and breathtaking panoramic views Fowey has to offer are not enough to keep you occupied during your stay, some of the best attractions Cornwall has to offer are literally a short drive away - The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and The Monkey Sanctuary to name but a few.
