There are several well-loved brand stores in Fowey (Sea Salt, Joules, Fat Face, and Mountain Warehouse) but its real charm lies with the wide range of boutique, unique and independent shops. Spend hours browsing them for clothes, homewares, crafts, glassware, art, antiques, books, seaside knick-knacks, traditional children toys and don't forget the old fashioned sweet shop!
There are also several bakeries and the fabulous Kittows deli. With two local stores, there may be no supermarket in Fowey, but you'll still find everything you need here. And all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping to Cornerways as well.
THINGS TO SEE & DO
In the centre of Fowey there is also a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum – both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th church and a 15th century castle fort.
There are a variety of activities on the water, ranging from organised boat trips to canoe hire.
The closest permanent is Ready Money Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming.
There is also a tidal sea-pool hidden away at the Whitehouse Pier! Within a five-ten minute drive, you can be at Polkerris beach and Par Sands, and within a half hour drive there is Carlyon Bay, Charlestown, Porthpean, Pentewan and Mevagissey.
There are many thousands of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds 630 miles around the county, and The Saints Way is 27 miles from Fowey on the south coast, right across to Padstow on the north coast. The Fowey Hall Walk is much more manageable at 4 miles! Whether you enjoy the sea, woods, rivers, moors or fields, you will not be disappointed with the walks in Cornwall.
The closest major attractions are The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens Of Heligan. They really do have something for everyone and make a most enjoyable day out for child and adults.
For the green-fingered travellers, there are also many other great gardens - in fact, there are 12 Great Gardens of Cornwall!
If you’re looking for somewhere for the kids, check out Camel Creek, Springfields, Dairyland, Kidzworld at Cornucopia, Indoor Active, Newquay Zoo or Porfell Wildlife Centre.A small list of the many hundreds of places for families to visit!
Cornwall also has many wonderful National Trust and English Heritage sites.

A gem of a cottage in Fowey
We absolutely loved our stay at Jackdaw. The pictures really don't do the cottage justice. Its furnished to a very high standard, quirky decor which is fun, but felt very homely at the same time. Having the big garden for our dog Alfie to run around in was brilliant. The walk into town takes about 15 minutes which for us was not an issue, we were lucky we didn't have much rain, and being able to park easily for us was worth staying outside the town for.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone, and Guy made us feel very welcome and gave us recommendations for walks and places to eat. It was great knowing the owners were next door in case of any issues, not that we had any.
Very comfortable home, very warm welcome by the owners, highly recommendable
The weather in January could have been better, but house and garden made it a wonderful holiday
Lovely location. Beautifully equipped.
Very comfortable. Welcoming hosts. Dog friendly. Superb location provided you are happy to walk but only a short stroll in to town.
Beautiful well appointed cottage
This is a lovely cottage in a quiet location. There is parking and a huge pretty garden. The cottage is V comfortable with high quality fixtures, a coffee machine, good quality towels, duvets and pillows, plus a wood burner.
Guy and Amanda were friendly, relaxed and helpful. About a 15 min walk to the centre of Fowey, 20 mins back as slightly uphill. V much recommend.
Great cottage in great location
This cottage was absolutley fantastic. The gardens were incredible and the interior was of the highest quality. The cottage itself had all you would require and more on holiday and was just like a home form home. A 15 minute walk into the town of Fowey and what a delight. This picturesque town is quintessential Cornwall - narrow streets, fishing boats, pasties and cream teas! If you want a high quality property in a first class location, Jackdaw Cottage is for you!
