If you are in the area you should visit the estuary. Possibly best approached via the bodenick ferry side

What a beautiful place to stay and only a short drive to the Edan project. It was such a friendly little fishing village with everything there you need .

I've been visiting Fowey for decades, its a wonderful place whatever the season. Although I prefer it at quieter times of the year. Great walks, take the Bodinnick Ferry over to Bodinnick, walk the Hall Walk and get the foot ferry back to Fowey. Or...More

What a beautiful harbour and estuary. Nestled between the hills of Cornwall an absolute treasure of a place. Amazed at the size of ships that enter Fowey and hundred of berths for cabin and sailing craft. A must see if visiting Cornwall.

Visited in February and out of season. Fowey and the estuary were well worth the time to relax and enjoy the tranquility of Cornwall. Good walking or just chilling out.

We love coming to Fowey, the views from the water are stunning and you can explore a lot that is tricky but footpath. With the right weather there really aren't many better places in the world!

Clean and calming water and amazing views for young or old alike, parking a pain in the town but great place to visit with the many shops and places to eat
