Local information

  • The beautiful and historic harbour town of Fowey is set on the western bank of the River Fowey, a tidal estuary on Cornwall's south east coastline, between the fishing ports of Looe in the east and Mevagissey in the west. On the opposite side of the river is the village of Polruan, with a regular passenger ferry connecting the two and a car ferry that runs from Fowey to Bodinnick on the other side of the river.
  • Set in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty', Fowey is not only an historic town, but also a commercial seaport and natural harbour, with many deep water moorings making it an ideal cruising base for boating enthusiasts. Throughout the summer the harbour teems with boating activity, from competitive racing of the local Troy class, cruising yachts and dinghies to large gaff-rigged wooden yachts and visiting cruise liners.
  • The town has an active community throughout the year and a fine selection of local amenities including numerous shops, pubs, restaurants and hotels. It also has its own doctors and dental surgeries, as well as a post office, hairdressers, library, primary and secondary schools, whilst further amenities are available at nearby St Austell, Bodmin or Truro.
  • During the year, Fowey plays host to a number of major cultural and maritime events including a Christmas market, the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature, The Du Maurier Festival and the Fowey Royal Regatta, that has celebrations over a whole week culminating with a wonderful fireworks display.
  • Communications to the area are good, with the A30 at Bodmin providing dual carriageway links to the M5 Motorway at Exeter, or via Plymouth on the A38.
