The Fowey Hotel is reminiscent of earlier days. Excellent rooms, surroundings, and location. Situated above the small, picturesque town we were fortunate to see two tall ships sail by. The food was very good and the staff make the experience friendly and efficient. Our room...More

About
Description
The pretty Cornish town of Fowey, is a delight to explore. Clusters of characterful buildings, cottages and shops tumble down the hillside to rub shoulders with those stacked along the curving main street, More which runs parallel to the Fowey estuary. The Fowey Hotel, with its wonderful views over the town, estuary and the sea is the perfect place from which to explore it all!There's plenty to do and see too. Shopping is fun, with a variety of independent specialist shops, galleries and delicatessens - with not a high street name in sight! The town is a most pleasant walk from end to end; to be taken at a reasonable dawdle, in order not to miss a bit as there are some wonderful surprises just round every corner.From here you can venture east or west along the South West coast path and walk for miles or drive no more than a short distance, to visit the numerous sights and attractions situated in this lush, verdant area of Cornwall.

If you walk along the front of the hotel for about 10 mins the best beach is called Ready Money. It is really beautiful and worth going to and you have access to the coast walk from there.
