The Location - Fowey is situated at the mouth of the River Fowey in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in the middle of the South Cornish coastline between Mevagissey and Looe, Fowey plays host to a number of 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 beautiful harbours and creeks of the West Country. 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 Oyster luggers and visiting cruise liners.
The town is rich in amenities with all manner of shops, bank, boutiques, bars, delicatessens and restaurants. It also has its own doctors and dental surgery, as well as a library, primary and secondary schools.
Further amenities are available at St Austell and Bodmin (9 miles and 13 miles respectively), whilst Truro City (23 miles) is the County Town.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.There are regular Intercity rail services from Par/Lostwithiel to London Paddington (approximately 3 hours 53 minutes) and Plymouth. The growing number of flights to UK and international destinations from Newquay and Exeter Airports, and Brittany Ferries services from Plymouth to France and Spain, ensure that Fowey is a viable destination or starting point of any journey.
