Close to the harbour, you can enjoy delightful ferry trips across the estuary to Polruan, or around the headland to the little fishing port of Mevagissey.
Wonderful vistas and walks are all around, with plenty to see and do on land or water. The Fowey Hotel is well place for visiting spectacular Cornish gardens - the Eden Project is just 20 minutes' drive away; the Lost Gardens of Heligan 35 minutes' drive.
On entering Fowey, continue on the main road leading into the town. The road will bear to the right (signposted Fowey Hall, Hotel and Restaurant). Do not take this road but indicate left and take the road down into the town, then take the next right (signposted Fowey Hotel). Continue along this road for approx 200 yards. The road will bear to the right, and you need to take the driveway on the left (sign posted The Fowey Hotel Reception). Pull up to the entrance of the hotel unless you see your reserved parking space.
