Fowey Holidays offers two options for a holiday in this beautiful area – self-catering for up to five people at Riverside Cottage in Fowey and Napier Cottage, a dog-friendly B and B for two people, located on the Saints Way in nearby Golant.
Both have wonderful views in an area which is just perfect for dog-walking.
Riverside Cottage is 200 years old and is beautifully presented boasting period
features including oak floors, wooden beams and stone walls yet offers wi fi and central heating. It is in the heart of Fowey which is a vibrant sailing centre surrounded by beautiful countryside with sandy beaches at Polkerris, Par Beach and at Readymoney Cove. It is perfect for families, dog owners and for those who love water-based activities.
Napier Cottage has the most amazing views over the river in the nearby village of Golant. An added bonus is the summerhouse located in the hillside garden – perfect for budding artists and birdwatchers and you may even see the resident seal. It is a skip and a jump from the local pub, the Fishermans Arms and the base for Encounter Cornwall where visitors can enjoy their holiday kayaking to Fowey or along the picturesque creeks to the village of Lerryn.
Highlights of the year on the River Fowey are the Fowey Regatta and Sailing Week and the Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature (previously known as the Daphne Du Maurier Festival). The town boasts a wide range of designer shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes and pubs full of character.
A passenger ferry makes regular trips across the River Fowey to the adjacent village of Polruan and a car ferry gives easy access to the popular resorts of Polperro and Looe. Just 38 miles south of Plymouth there is easy access to the national rail network from the nearby town of Par. It is a great area for cycling and is just 15 minutes drive to the world-famous Eden Project.
The cottages are among the few holiday homes in Fowey and Golant which welcome dogs.
