Make a holiday cottage in Fowey your home away from home

Holidaymakers looking for a summer filled with watersports and bonding with nature, booking a holiday home in Fowey is highly recommended. This small town is defined by the estuary on the banks of which it lies, the Fowey Estuary. It has been a cargo port from which goods were received and dispatched for centuries, making it critical to economic activity in Cornwall. Besides the abundant flora and the water bodies here, there are a number of captivating monuments awaiting visitors. As they explore the touristic treasures of south Cornwall, visitors can rely on HomeAway to supply them with holiday cottages in Fowey that match their needs. They can repose in cosy stone cottages in which pets are welcome and private pools are sometimes found, or choose apartments that are close to the quay.

Things to do

-Nature walks: Fowey is blessed with a rich, verdant landscape and there are well-marked trails that lead through the greenery, exposing visitors to incredible scenery over the estuary. At the end of the trail is an inn where walkers can replenish their energy with a meal and a cold beer. Trails pass through lush woodlands as well as over rugged cliffs and the variety of trails assures walkers of all levels an enjoyable day out. There are even trails that lead through the town’s streets.

-Beaches: There are a number of different beaches to choose from – some sandy, others covered in a mix of sand and pebbles. Those who don’t mind trading facilities for seclusion can head to Lansallos Beach, which is often deserted. They could also check out Lantic Bay, an isolated cove of mixed sand and shingle. Par Sands is the most visited of the beaches here and kids will love flying their kites along its shore. Kite surfers, meanwhile, will relish the winds blowing across this beach.

-Watersports: One of the ways residents of Fowey holiday rentals can relax and also get spectacular views of the area is by taking a cruise along the Fowey River. For an authentic and traditional experience they can take a steam boat, on which a friendly captain is all too willing to share his knowledge of local history with the passengers. Those who would rather have a bit more luxury can charter yachts for the voyage.

-Cultural events: Holidaymakers in Fowey holiday homes will get to enjoy local get-togethers such as the annual regatta that is held every August. The Fowey Royal Regatta is considered one of the UK’s premier boat racing events. Besides watching well-trained sailors slug it out, visitors will be treated to great live music, a colourful parade and plenty of fireworks.

-Landmarks: While in this part of Cornwall, a visit to St. Catherine’s Castle is a must. It sits at the end of an enjoyable walk along the coastline and was purposed as a fort to protect the estuary. Climbing to its top, visitors will be rewarded with magical views across Readymoney Cove. The Tristan Stone dates back to the 6th century and indicates where the son of King Mark of Cornwall was laid to rest.

Weather in Fowey

Fowey’s mild climate, visitors will find, is highly conducive for outdoor activities. Summer temperatures average about 20°C at their hottest. In the cold season temperatures drop to between 5 and 10°C and quite a bit of rainfall is experienced. Average precipitation levels of close to 150mm are received monthly between October and January.

Travel to Fowey

To get to their Fowey holiday homes, UK tourists can board a train from Paddington in London, or other closer locales such as Newquay and Penzance. They can get off at the Par Railway Station in Cornwall – the Fowey station was closed almost 50 years ago. Flights to Plymouth City Airport are available from London, Newcastle, Manchester, Jersey and Glasgow. This airport is 23 miles from Fowey and they can grab a train to Par and then proceed to Fowey by bus.

The accommodation is beautiful and very tastefully done. Only problem. The steps getting to the apartment are very steep and a mite slippery. The decking very much so in the wet. Apart from that I would highly recommend this apartment as a fantastic base for exploring Cornwall. It's a short walk into town and most of the poi's are within a reasonable distance away. Highly recommended
