Self Catering Holiday Cottages in Fowey

Fowey takes everything Cornwall has to offer and wraps it up as one unforgettable holiday destination. There's always something interesting happening in this bustling seaside town (which is pronounced "Foy", to rhyme with toy), meaning that you can have a fantastic time no matter what the weather decides to do, or what time of year you are there. Fowey is part of a beautiful estuary to the east of St Austell Bay, between Mevagissey and Polperro. It's just under a three hour drive from Bristol, or a short taxi or bus trip from Par or St Austell if you arrive by train. Read more

Fowey

Fowey's southern location means it benefits from the best of the British weather, with long days of warm sunshine, mild evenings, and some spectacular winter storms. There are several stunning beaches nearby. Par Sands is popular with families and kite surfers, while Polkerris and Lansallos are peaceful and sheltered. Readymoney Cove is a short walk from the town centre with lots of rock pools to explore.

Cornwall is not just about beaches. Fowey is surrounded by unspoiled countryside adored by ramblers, mountain bikers, and horse riders alike. Sailing enthusiasts, anglers, and golfers are well catered for with superb facilities. Smugglers, pirates, and the navy have made good use of the coast line, and you can still see signs of their activity at places like St Catherine's Point and Polruan Blockhouse. If all that wasn't enough, there is an excellent selection of independent shops to browse and the famous Eden Project is just a short drive away.

This part of Cornwall is renowned for its delicious seafood and local produce. You only have to walk down Fore Street for your tummy to start rumbling as it is beckoned by the aroma wafting from numerous restaurants. Be sure to stop at Havener's and sample a pint of St Austell's finest Tribute overlooking the sea on the Quayside. For something a little more Mediterranean, head to Pintxo's on the Esplanade - a great 'pop-in' for tapas and a glass (or two!).

Usually a quieter part of Cornwall, Fowey becomes its busiest each August during the Fowey Regatta with visitor numbers peaking when the Red Arrows perform their annual show.
