You certainly won’t go hungry while you’re on holiday in Fowey – these are our favourite places to eat out!

There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey 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.

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.

In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium and a local history 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 overlooking Readymoney Cove.

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.
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 coastline and good surfing on some of the beaches.

Things To See & Do In The Local Area
- There are hundreds of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 330 miles around the county. 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 on Sundays 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 famous for its 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. Further afield on the North Coast, head to Wheal Coates from the iconic Poldark-style tin mines.
- There are lots of National Trust and English Heritage sites across Cornwall, as well as independent stately homes and gardens. Some of our local favourites are Lanhydrock House, Pencarrow House, Tintagel Castle, Restormel Castle and Caerhays Estate.
- Bit of a thrill seeker? Then Cornwall has some fantastic opportunities to get your adrenaline buzz! Hang Loose at Eden, Adrenaline Quarry near Liskeard and Via Ferrata near Penryn are perfect for a day full of crazy activities.
-If you’re looking for somewhere just for the kids, check out Kidzworld, Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre. This is just small selection of the many dozens of places for families to visit!

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 had a great little stay at this apartment for 3 days with 2 small children - the apartment was exactly as described, spotlessly clean, with a view over the river. It's right in the centre of Fowey so everything is easily accessible. Great hosts - very responsive to any questions by e-mail or phone - made this a pleasant, easy stay. Thanks!"

Miles (AirBnB) "We know Fowey well so knew what we were getting in terms of location. It's a great central location and has the added advantage of being able to pull into the car park to unload - even if you can't park there. Of course being so central csn mean a bit of noise in the morning if you sleep with the window open! There are nice views across the harbour. The apartment is really fitted out and the Kitchen is really well equipped. We would definitely stay here again."
