THE FOWEY – Cornwall’s Hidden Treasure

Part of the Richardson Group collection of five very individual hotels and tucked away on the picturesque south coast of Cornwall you will find the elegant 37 bedroom Fowey Hotel, Cornwall’s hidden treasure.  Offering breath-taking views, exquisite service and fine dining in the 2 AA rosette Spinnakers restaurant, this 4 star boutique hotel is one of Cornwall’s finest.

This striking Victorian hotel sits overlooking the River Fowey estuary offering stunning, interrupted views of the river and sea beyond.  Outdoor space includes a terrace in front of the bar and lounge, tea gardens adjacent to the hotel and across the Esplanade immediately next to the river itself.

Inside, a reminder of its origins with the gilt Victorian lift and elegant dimensions.  As you would expect, this hotel has played its part throughout the decades, including playing host to authors such as Daphne Du Maurier and Kenneth Grahame.  Indeed there are framed letters hanging in the hallway from the Wind in the Willows’ author to his son, Alistair, to whom he referred to as ‘Mouse’, penned during his stay here.

The 2 AA rosette restaurant, Spinnakers, offers diners a wonderful view of the Estuary through the floor to ceiling windows as well as an authentic taste of the South West.  Head Chef, Mark Griffiths, is one of the few Master Chefs of Great Britain, and delights in serving, where possible, locally grown, sourced, caught or reared ingredients.

Being just a stone’s throw from Fowey town centre, the quayside and the south west coastal path, puts this hotel in easy reach of relaxation seekers, explorers and walkers alike.
