“Unspoilt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

First but not the last visit to this delightful town. We stayed in an apartment on the river. View had everything - river, boats, trees, all sorts of birds even a deer! Fowey itself is unspoilt, very little traffic and plenty to see. Lots of good walks starting from here so we didn't use the car for four days. Do go to the Tourist Information - lots of friendly advice.

“Quirky Typical Cornish Estuary Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Interesting even in the rain!
There is a good place in the main street for a cream tea.
If you have young children with you, be careful in the very narrow streets.

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Parking is better on the upper carpark as driving into the village was difficult. We used the town bus to get back up to the car park afterwards.
The harbour is fabulous and you can sit out at the nearby restaurants and pubs and enjoy the view or even go out on the boat trips.
The shops are all quaint and lovely to see.
Well worth a visit!

“Lovely morning out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a lovely little village with quaint shops. The bakewell tart in the bakery with the cafe adjoining, cant remember its name, was to die for. On a negative the prices in the resturant near the sea were very overpriced, £95 for 3 pizza, childs chips and a small pasta.

One of the most beautiful and best kept secrets in Cornwall! Plenty of things to see and take in in a day.
