Bryony Cottage sits on the edge of the delightful coastal town of Fowey in the small hamlet of Newtown. Sleeping up to three guests, this lovely holiday cottage is full of Cornish charm and character making it ideal for couples and small families at any time of the year with beams on the ceiling and a multi-fuel stove for cosy nights in front of the fire (along with night storage heating).
Fowey is a stunning harbourside town that has a unique ancient unspoilt charm which is why visitors return year after year. With a great choice of eating establishments, lovely independent shops/boutiques, spectacular coastal scenery, small coves and golden beaches, it is little wonder that this pretty harbourside town is popular all year round. There are some spectacular walks both along the coastal path and in country, along with the opportunity to try a number of outdoor activities such a golf (at Carlyon Bay, Lanhydrock Hotel and Golf Course and Porthpean - all within easy driving distance), fishing (boat trips for sea fishing from Fowey) and sailing.
The estuary is abundant with wildlife and one of the nicest ways to explore the beautiful bustling harbour and Fowey Estuary is to hire a boat (motorised) or kayak (expeditions to explore the river can be booked in Fowey). Alternatively you can discover it by guided river boat which makes regular trips from the quayside and allows you to sit back and soak up the scenery.
There are a wide range of attractions in the local area. Explore St Catherine's Castle, visit the Aquarium or Museum in the town or simply enjoy a long leisurely lunch whilst watching the boats bobbing on the water in the harbour. Take a ferry trip to Mevagissey or visit during the popular Regatta week (in August with lots of events, fire works and even the spectacular red arrows) or in May when the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature attracts people from far and wide.
The world famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are both close by and wonderful days out. Fowey also offers a great base from which to explore other Cornish gems such as Falmouth (with its National Maritime Museum), Padstow (with its fantastic restaurants), the beautiful Helford River and St Mawes to name but a few.
Enjoy a relaxing holiday in this beautiful part of South Cornwall - stunning at any time of the year.
