Fowey Cornwall

 

Pronounced Foy to rhyme with joy. Situated on the south coast of Cornwall between Looe and Mevagissey, Fowey is not only an historic town but also a commercial seaport.

 

Over the centuries Fowey has grown and now stretches for about a mile along the west bank of the River Fowey to the mouth of the river. Situated on the opposite bank, also at the mouth of the river, is the village of Polruan. A regular passenger ferry connects the two and further up river a car ferry runs from Fowey to Bodinnick on the other side of the river.

 

Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fowey has much to offer with something for everyone. A natural harbour, it is a haven for yachtsmen and we have had as many as 7,000 visiting yachts in a season. Fowey is an exporting port for china clay and as such you may see the ships making their way in and out of the harbour. Over the last few years Fowey has been a popular destination for several cruise liners, whose passengers are able to enjoy the delights of the town. What a sight to see these enormous ships come through the narrow harbour entrance, turn in the middle of the river and be pulled upstream to their mooring, the commercial jetties are concealed by a natural bend in the river.

 

If you are interested in walking, albeit a gentle stroll along the Esplanade on a warm summer's evening or a hike around the cliffs, then there is something for everyone to enjoy. The town boasts an excellent selection of quality shops and galleries, many exhibiting local works. If you are looking for refreshment be it a pint, a cream tea, fish and chips, a family meal or a gourmet dinner for a special occasion, then there is something to suit all tastes.
