Home cooking, high quality and quirky. Great snacks cooked to order, fab home made cakes, loveliest staff! Visit the ladies loo for an insight into the uniqueness of the place! Fab atmosphere but it does get busy.

My partner and I have just got home form a 5 night stay at The Dwelling House. The room is lovely and the roll top bath in the room a treat. The owners and their staff are so friendly and the service is excellent. The breakfast is delicious, with a wide choice, and the cakes and scones in the tearoom... More

This is an authentic tea shop. A little forbidding from the outside as not easy to see inside. So DO take a leap of faith and enter. We had the traditional Cornish Cream Tea (£5.75) and it's a real delight. Quick and friendly service with the tea in a large teapot, with separate hot water jug for 'top-ups' and plenty... More

Called into the very unassuming Dwelling House whilst in Fowey for the day - (you could easily miss it along Fore street.) Had the most fantastic Cornish cream tea whilst the hubby had the toasted tea cake. Both the best we'd ever eaten. Good selection of other choices on the menu and the fresh leaf tea and coffee were superb... More

Booked this on basis of earlier trip advisor reviews and in view of its location. Amazing breakfasts, very helpful hosts, loads of hot water, and being above a tearoom, excellent choice of teas and scones with a discount. Very reasonably priced and you are made very welcome by the whole staff group. Being close to the quay there is some... More

Eating in the Dwelling house is always a lovely experience. We have eaten here on many times over the years, this time we took friends with us who were not only impressed by the unpretentious and laid back feel of the place, but equally the helpful and charming staff who are always ready to oblige and the wonderful food and...

We had a really lovely stay at the Dwelling House. The room was very comfortable and the location was really good (in the heart of Fowey). The breakfast was delicious and so was the food we ate in tea room. The owners were very friendly and we felt very welcome throughout our stay. Would highly recommend The Dwelling House and... More

We was on a day trip to Fowey and just wanted light refreshments at lunch time. We made the choice of a Cream Teas and wasn't disappointed. The scones were both delicious and served warm with very generous helpings of jam and clotted cream. Next time we are in Fowey we will be going back for more!
