Fowey is situated at the mouth of the River Fowey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The neighbouring villages of Polruan and Bodinnick are a short ferry ride across the estuary. Set in the middle of the South Cornish coastline between Mevagissey and Looe, Fowey plays host to several major cultural and maritime events, including the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature and the Fowey Royal Regatta.

Whilst Fowey remains a working, deep water port, it is also the perfect cruising base from which to explore the Channel Islands and beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country. Throughout the summer, its harbour teems with boating activity, from competitive racing of the local Troy class, cruising yachts and dinghies, to large gaff-rigged wooden Oyster luggers and visiting cruise liners.

The town itself is rich in amenities with all manner of shops, banks, boutiques, bars, delicatessens and restaurants. It also has its own hospital, doctors, and dentists’ surgeries, as well as a library, and primary and secondary schools. Further amenities are available at St Austell and Bodmin (9 miles and 13 miles, respectively), and Plymouth offers the full range of facilities expected of a city, including a university and theatres.

The motorway road network as far as Exeter and then either the A30 (via Bodmin) or A38 (via Plymouth) makes Fowey very accessible. Regular Intercity rail services from Par (about 3 hours 53 minutes to London Paddington) and Plymouth (about 3 hours and 7 minutes to London Paddington) are even quicker. The growing number of flights to the UK and international destinations from Newquay and Exeter Airports, and Brittany Ferries services from Plymouth to France and Spain, ensure that Fowey is now a viable destination or starting point of any journey.

On entering Fowey, please park in the public car park at the top of the village. Take the pedestrian access down to the village centre. Following the lane down to Fore Street. Turn right immediately after Niles Bakery on the right. The entrance will be found on the right.
