Welcome to Fowey – jewel of the South West – an idyllic seaside town on the south coast of Cornwall. Nestled between Mevagissey and Polperro, we’re a short drive from the Eden Project, a haven for locals and visitors alike. And welcome to the Love Fowey website, our way of showing off the place!
Love Fowey involves a group of shop, cafe, restaurant, pub and accommodation owners, as well as local artists and photographers, who love living and working in the town and who want to shout about the great things they have to offer.
Our aim is to promote a busy, vibrant high street, highlighting the distinctive Fowey identity, via its lively mix of businesses.
Take a look around the site and you’ll see the vast range of shopping, dining – yes, and drinking – opportunities available, great accommodation and attractions, local artists… Start the day with a locally-sourced fry-up, pick up some new clothes and Cornish fudge for the kids, lunch on fresh locally sourced seafood, browse a gallery or two, sip a real ale beside the quay and finish off the day with a great big steak! If you’re lucky, your bed’s only 50 yards away. Failing all that, try a course in basket weaving.
There really is so much to do in Fowey, you’ll need to stay a few days to appreciate it. You don’t even have to stay on dry land – there are boat trips available on the stunning Fowey River, and plenty of swimming opportunities at the picturesque Readymoney and White House beaches. (If you’re heading here for any of the major events – Fowey Festival of Words and Music, Fowey Royal Regatta week, the recently inaugurated Mussel Festival or the Christmas Market – be sure to book early because the town is usually heaving.)
Everything you’ve heard about us is true. We Love Fowey – we bet you’ll Love Fowey, too, from the moment you first visit.
