Please note: This listing is only for The Sun room.
The Sun is a beautiful bedroom within a town house in central Fowey. The whole room has been recently and tastefully decorated, with comfort in mind. The 5 foot bed is fantastic and there’s plenty of space to unpack.
There is a modern shower en-suite, and facilities to make tea and coffee. Linens and towels are also provided. Guests also have access to a shared living room and terrace.
Our town house is found above the Quba store and the ground floor entrance is shared with the house owner and guests from both The Sun and The Moon rooms.
The first floor of the house is where you will find our two guest rooms - The Sun and The Moon - and also the guest living room and terrace. Although we don't provide breakfast we are happy for food and meals to be brought in from the many wonderful cafes and bakeries in the town.
The second floor is the private apartment for the owners Dave and Jill. They are on hand if needed, but will always respect your privacy.
Kingsize bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
Entrance next to Quba Shop and into private hallway and staircase.
1st floor: Guests lounge and terrace. Two Bedrooms - The Sun and The Moon
2nd floor: Owners apartment
Step out from the lounge onto our terrace to enjoy evening drinks or a spot of breakfast.
The house is on Fore Street in the very centre of the town and does not have private parking. Two doors down is a short stay car park (2 hours) which is perfect for loading/unloading bags, and then Caffa Mill is a 10 minute walk away.
All three long stay car parks in Fowey are run by Cornwall Council. You can get hourly, daily, weekly and rover passes on their website or using the Just Park app.
There is also a free car park opposite squire’s field on Park Road. There are no allocated spaces and can fill up quickly during the summer weeks.

There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey such as Seasalt, Joules, Fat Face, and Mountain Warehouse. But the real charm of the town lies in the wide range of boutique, unique and independent shops. You can spend hours browsing for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children’s toys and don't forget the old-fashioned sweet shop!
There are also top-quality bakeries where you can find bread, rolls, pasties, cakes and treats. There may be no large supermarket, but with two local convenience stores and a Boots, you'll still find everything you need. There is a Co-op around 5 miles away, Asda and Tesco are around 7 miles, and all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well.
THINGS TO SEE & DO
Fowey is an estuary river town, so the obvious thing to do is spend a day messing about on the water! There are many kayak, canoe, and boat hire centres that go from both Quays. If you don’t have the strongest sea legs, then why not just take the passenger ferry over to Polruan for an afternoon! If you fancy going a little further, you can take the ferry round to Mevagissey too.
In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th century church in the centre of the town and a 15th century fort, St. Catherine’s Castle, on the edge of the estuary.
The closest beach to town is Readymoney Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming. A swimming platform is moored off the beach during the summer months. There is also a fabulous little shop for all your seaside needs. However, no dogs are allowed between Easter and October.
There is a secret sea-pool hidden away at Whitehouse Pier which is perfect for a refreshing paddle while looking out over the estuary. It can only be found at certain times, so check those tide times!
Within a 5/10-minute drive, you can be at Polridmouth, Polkerris or Par Sands, and within a half hour drive you’ll find Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan or Mevagissey.
An hour’s drive and you are on the north coast of Cornwall – this is where you will find the more dramatic views, coastline and good surfing on some of the beaches.
Bit of a thrill seeker? Then Cornwall has some fantastic opportunities to get your adrenaline buzz! Hang Loose at Eden have zip wires and giant air swings, Adrenaline Quarry near Liskeard is perfect for a day full of crazy activities, and Retallack Watersports near Newquay is the place to head for total-wipeout style aqua adventures.
There are hundreds 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 and is the best way to see Fowey from all angles! We also particularly enjoy the Gribbin Head walk, especially when the Daymark is open in the summer. 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 offer something for everyone and make an enjoyable day-trip. For green-fingered travellers, there are also many other great gardens; in fact, there are officially 12 Great Gardens of Cornwall!
Cornwall is very famous for its tin mining heritage, and you will see many old engine houses dotted across the landscape. The countryside directly surrounding Fowey and St Austell is locally known as Clay Country due to its abundance of China Clay. Wheal Martyn is an interesting museum that gives a good insight into the history and culture of the clay works, and if you take the walk to the top of the grounds it overlooks a modern working pit.
There are lots of National Trust and English Heritage sites across Cornwall, as well as stately homes and gardens. Some of our local favourites are Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Restormel Castle and Caerhays Estate.
If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Kidzworld, Indoor Active, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. This is just small selection of the many dozens of places for families to visit! Pop into our office during your stay to pick up our “best days out” pack, full of leaflets and vouchers.
Don’t forget to follow Fowey Homes Holidays on social media for inspiration on days out. When booking your trip with us, please feel free to ask for some personal recommendations - we’d love to help you discover the real hidden gems of Cornwall and get the most of out of your time in beautiful Fowey.

“Jill and Dave are excellent hosts with excellent communication. Their place is right in the heart of Fowey with level walks to shops, bars and restaurants as well as the quay. The welcome we had was great and genuine friendly communication continued throughout our stay. As a town we love Fowey and are moving there. As an accommodation the Sun and Moon won’t disappoint.”

"Comfy and super location
Room was comfortable, and the bathroom spotless. The bathroom was two steps from the bedroom, bath robe and slippers provided so it was basically an en-suite. Location right in the centre of Fowey (but not noisey). Fowey great little town as a base for walks and places to eat all around. There was a short stay next door but we chose the long stay car park a few minutes down the road. So it wasn’t hassle to bring the bags over (hilly though so if you have mobility problems suggest you get dropped outside the property) . Dave was waiting for us on arrival and made us feel welcome."

Highly recommend this Airbnb. Immaculate! A real delight. Once you park up your car in a nearby carpark - everything is closeby. Perfect location to enjoy Fowey. Little extra touches like cold water, orange juice. Disappointed could only stay one night.
