In the centre of Fowey there is also a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th church and a 15th century castle fort.
There are a variety of activities on the water, ranging from organised boat trips to canoe hire.
The closest permanent is Ready Money Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming. There is also a tidal sea-pool hidden away at the Whitehouse Pier!
Within a five-ten minute drive, you can be at Polkerris beach and Par Sands, and within a half hour drive there is Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan and Mevagissey.
You certainly won’t go hungry while in Fowey - see below for our list of favourite places to eat out in Fowey.
Evening Meals: The Quay House Hotel and King of Prussia
Family Friendly: Sams, The Gaeollon and Haveners

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 children 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 had a lovely time at Carnethic House. The apartment was well fitted out and the grounds and pool were great. A lovely walk to Readymoney Cove which was a perfect family beach.

A beautiful apartment in a great location at the top of the hill, just as you enter Fowey. Really four star, and I will be recommending to friends and family shou;d they wish to come and visit Fowey in the future. The on-site pool and sauna were especially welcome and enjoyed by us all.

I had arranged a close family weekend away before the events of Christmas took over. I had booked Orchard view based on the photos shown and it did not disappoint us. The apartment was excellent, all the rooms were decorated superbly and the facilities provided were luxurious. We all felt at home immediately and this meant we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We were three couples taking an extended weekend break at the end of October. Two of us had made day trips to Fowey previously from Padstow so we knew we liked the town but this was our first stay in Fowey. We were not disappointed as the accommodation was excellent and ideal for our party. The apartment was well equipped, comfortable and very spacious and provided plenty of options for relaxation. The indoor heated pool was an added bonus, albeit its use was limited as we spent everyday going out somewhere and eating out most evenings. The back up support was also very efficient as, when we arrived, a carbon monoxide alarm was bleeping but the housekeeper was there within the hour to fix it. Also Fowey was an ideal location for what we wanted with plenty of options for eating out and in the daytime there were plenty of places to visit. We particularly liked Lanhydrock, Truro and its cathedral as well as the harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey. We were happy to negotiate the hill in and out of the town on foot and we would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone thinking of slaying there. I can see us staying there again in the future!

This is the third time we have stayed at Carnethic House apartments but the first time in this particular one. It is light, bright and extremely well equipped. The decor is coastal (which I love) and the property is spacious. The beds are really comfy too! My kids love the garden and pool which is why we have already booked this apartment for next year! Fabulous :)

Spacious accommodation, well equipped, clean and bright. Great base for walking into Fowey and exploring the local area. Parking for two cars is always a bonus in Cornwall. The use of the beautiful pool and well tended garden was also a bonus. We highly recommend this property.

The property was enjoyed by three generations of our family, and all the members voted 10 out of 10, even the 4 year old! The swimming pool especially was a hit with the younger generation, and the garden was the scene of a number of football games! The communal open plan kitchen/lounge/diner was ideal for all members of the family to interact together, and for the adults to keep an easy eye on the children. We would all certainly recommend the apartment to our friends and would love to come back again in the future.

Lovely light spacious apartment in quiet location. Living area well furnished and roomy. Great having 2 en suite bathrooms and separate toilet and bathroom. Well equipped kitchen. Great having a pool on site. Only slight complaint was that wi-fi wasn't always great, but when I contacted HomeAway they replied to all e-mails and tried to resolve the problem even though it was the Easter Bank holiday weekend. We left something behind, I notified HomeAway and offered to pay for it to be returned, but it was returned free of charge. Fantastic holiday, fantastic apartment. Would happily stay there again

We had the most amazing autumn break at this apartment. The weather was not on our side, but with the pool and sauna we didn't mind at all!
