Two beautiful bedrooms with lounge at our town house in central Fowey.
Both rooms were recently and tastefully decorated, with comfort in mind. The 5 foot beds are fantastic and there’s plenty of space to unpack.
There is an ensuite with The Sun and a private bathroom with The Moon, and facilities to make tea and coffee in both rooms.
The bedrooms are on the same floor as the guest living room, where you can relax and enjoy the terrace.
Our town house is found above the Quba store and the ground floor entrance is only shared with the house owners.
The first floor of the house is where you will find our two rooms - The Sun and The Moon. The Sun is ensuite, and the private bathroom is just across from The Moon. There is a lock which can only be opened with your key so it a totally private bathroom. We also provide bathrobes in the bedroom.
We have recently added the living room with a terrace just for our guests. 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.
As we only have the two rooms, which are both on the same floor, we are happy for families of 4 to stay. We do not have a travel cot, but please feel free to bring one with you.
The rooms are also available to rent separately.

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.

"We stayed in the Sun and Moon while attending a wedding nearby.The accommodation was perfect, and the location really great, literally yards from the water. Great food and shopping all around. Great relaxation in the sitting room and the sunny verandah. Dave and Jill are wonderful hosts, and great company to talk with. Dave's a London Boy, ask him 'what's occurrin''- he'll tell ya'. Great place, Great people, Great town is Fowey (that's pronounced Foy, sounds like Joy.) Highly recommended. "

Had a great time here with Dave. He was always responsive to questions and suggestions in and around the area. Always there when we needed him and we even decided to stay an extra night at his place. All in all, a great experience.

We were utterly taken back when we arrived as not only had the communications been fabulous, so was the location! The impeccable decor was something to behold and both rooms had THE most comfortable beds we’ve ever stayed in (apart from our own of course!). Was so impressed we toured some other family around who were staying elsewhere in the area and they too were as impressed as we were. If we find ourselves heading Fowey way again in the near future we’d most certainly come back - if they’ll have us!!

We stayed last minute due to bad weather and not wanting to take boat home. I noticed the sign next to the quba shop just to right of the jetty in fab location. Despite The owners being out and having no bookings, they were most accommodating and let us stay the evening. Rooms are lovely and bright, comfortable bed and lovely ensuite with great shower. Great touches with free water juice teas coffees and a selection of toiletries to help yourself too (tooth brush was great being a last minute stay!) Would most certainly return and recommend

The house has been recently renovated and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Right by the river next to Albert Quay, it is is perfect location when visiting this pretty little town. Dave, the owner, is a great host, very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. I would definitely stay again and will be recommending it to friends and family.
