There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey (Sea Salt, Joules, Fat Face, and Mountain Warehouse) but its real charm lies with the wide range of boutique, unique and independent shops. Spend hours browsing them for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children toys and don't forget the old fashioned sweet shop!
There are also several bakeries and the fabulous Kittows deli. With two local stores, there may be no supermarket in Fowey, but you'll still find everything you need here. And all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well.
There are many thousands of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 630 miles around the county, and The Saints Way is 27 miles from Fowey on the south coast, right across to Padstow on the north coast. The Fowey Hall Walk is much more manageable at 4 miles! Whether you enjoy the sea, woods, rivers, moors or fields, you will not be disappointed with the walks in Cornwall.
The closest major attractions are The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens Of Heligan. They really do have something for everyone and make a most enjoyable day out for childred and adults.
For the green-fingered travellers, there are also many other great gardens - in fact, there are 12 Great Gardens of Cornwall!
If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Kidzworld at Cornucopia, Indoor Active, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. A small list of the many hundreds of places for families to visit!
Cornwall also has many wonderful National Trust and English Heritage sites.

We loved staying at The Lookout. It was a great space for kids with good amenities, plenty of bathrooms and a stunning view. Fowey has everything you need and it’s an easy drive to Eden, Heligan and other beaches. We’d definitely return.

Alex via AirBnB The house is in great condition and both the kitchen and bathrooms were new and in excellent working order. The communication and customer service was perfect. The location of the house is exactly where it needs to be: short walk to the ferry car park and the shops in town with a stunning view of the river. The secret garden at the back was a nice touch. Will definitely look to come back next year.

Such a beautiful and stylish house. We had a lovely time staying here. The area is amazing and the house is in a brilliant location. The house is lovely and clean and decor is stylish yet sympathetic to original features. The communication was fast and very informative. We would recommend the lookout as a brilliant place to stay and would stay again

We were there for the Christmas festival. It was a great experience and well organised. We joined the procession at the quay some 200 yards towards town. Free mulled wine was in plentiful supply being served warm from thermos flasks. A truly memorable experience. The house was excellent and comfortable but we did all think the kitchen was over engineered. We are all good cooks and believe the appliances could have been a lot more intuitive. But we got there and had a fabulous Christmas dinner. Beds were comfortable and the outlook was amasing.

We had a very wonderful time at this beautiful house. There was everything you need and the few from the terrace and the living room window was amazing. We spent a lot of time there just looking at the river and having good drinks. Fowey is a nice little town where you can find lots of little shops good restaurants and pubs. We will come back! Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Wonderful house, renovated to a high standard, centrally located in Fowey, but far enough away from the centre of town to offer some peace. Beautiful harbour views.

Beautiful house and a brilliant location, what more could you want for a week away on holiday. Fowey never disappoints us every time we visit and we will definitely look to come back again in the not too distant future.

We had a wonderful stay ( and Christmas ) in The Look out. Great position overlooking the estuary, close to the ferry ( great coastal walk ) and very close to the centre. Immaculately presented house in a contemporary style we like. Spacious bedrooms all with great sea views . A lovely open plan living area and very well equipped kitchen. We really appreciated our Christmas treats and the beautiful Christmas tree on arrival. A very memorable stay. Thank you very much .

Fabulous central location which comfortably housed two families. Parking was about £30/£40 for the week and only a few hundred yards up the road. Door step drop off is a breeze. Once you've visited Fowey you will appreciate that cars aren't required and definitely impossible to be attached to any property worth staying in! The house is three lovely storeys and immediately opposite the slip, so crabbing and boat fun was had; while others in the party cooked dinner, drank wine, and every-so-often checked on the others. Binoculars from Outriggers were bought and smugglers watched day and night 😉 Marvellous week and The Lookout was just perfect. Online shop delivery is perfect and the delivery gang from either major supplier are super friendly. Internet a breeze. That said; the local shop in town is really well stocked and very reasonable. The bakers are superb and open early for those loving an idilyic five min stroll to their door. It's a great position to visit many local sights, and we did, but *the most* fun was had in town with the locals and messing about in boats. Memories were made! We will definitely be booking up again for whenever we can get down to gorgeous Cornwall.
