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 beach 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.

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.

Lovely little place in a great position in Fowey. Some good recommendations from Abi in the booking paperwork for local beaches and eats. Would be happy to stay there again.

Lovely modern cottage with impressive sea views. It’s also in a good location for car parks and for a level walk into town which is not always easy to find in Fowey. The log burner was an especially nice and very cosy addition on a stormy night.

The Bolthole is a stylish, clean and perfect space for a couple or family of 4. It has spectacular views of Fowey Estuary and a front raised patio where we sat soaking up the views, people and boat watching! It's located at the quieter end of Fowey but all the shops, bars and buzz is just minutes walk away. The beds are very comfy, the bath is deep ( no shower but shower attachment to bath), the kitchen is fully equipped, there's two spacious sofas and Netflix! Wifi is good. We had our car so ventured out to Falmouth, Lerryn, Golant and Padstow. There are plenty of activities to try and I would recommend cycling the Camel Trial, having a taster session of sailing and Kayaking from Golant. There are numerous coastal/ country walks. We had an amazing holiday and would highly recommend the Bolthole to others.

Ideally located as the name suggests as a ‘bolthole’ for a weekend or weeks visit. We enjoyed its convenient position in relation to shops, cafes, beaches etc. walking into the town for breakfasts, snacks and coffee numerous times a day. Enough to do if you just want to chill for the week and ditch the car or use a base for exploring. I can imagine Parking in high season can be an issue but we managed and getting there early helps. Nice veranda overlooking a small launch was nice, catching the sun till late morning or sitting out on the warm evenings. Tidy, clean and modern inside yet still exuding seaside charm and character which is what we want visiting the coast. All in all we loved it, would recommend to anyone and will be booking again to return!

Lovely property, everything brand new and very well equipped. Great view across the river and very close to everything Fowey has to offer. Booked at very short notice and everything went very smoothly. Super comfy bed meant I had the best night's sleep I've had in ages.
