Set right in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fowey\u0026rsquo;s set on its own estuary, and its deep-water harbour makes it a favourite with fans of sailing. Just imagine long lazy days enjoying the estuary by river boat or watching the kids play on Readymoney Cove (now there\u0026rsquo;s a name that reminds you of smugglers\u0026hellip;), or wandering the winding streets picking up bargains in the quirky shops\u0026hellip;\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eIf you\u0026rsquo;re planning on walking some of that famous South West Coast Path, then a holiday in Fowey will have you with some of Cornwall\u0026rsquo;s finest stretches of coastline right on your doorstep. Daphne du Maurier once called the town home, and its literary connections are celebrated every year with the rather prestigious Fowey Festival of Arts and Literature. The festival sees some of the biggest names in the arts head to the town every May, and it\u0026rsquo;s a lovely way to experience the resort.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eThings to do in Fowey\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eIf you grew up with the adventures of Ratty and his friends then there\u0026rsquo;s only one thing to do in Fowey, and that\u0026rsquo;s to take to the river and enjoy the scenery that inspired the stories. Kenneth Grahame loved Cornwall, and the tales started as letters to his son. You\u0026rsquo;ll find a special river boat trip that ambles its way up and down the river Fowey, and we can\u0026rsquo;t think of a better way to spend a sunny afternoon.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eFor those days when you fancy working off all those seafood dinners, The Saints\u0026rsquo; Way is a great way to take in some of the region\u0026rsquo;s views as well as walking a piece of its history. Bear in mind that this walking trail runs all the way to Padstow, so you may want to pick it up and just see how far you can go, but the footpath takes its walkers through some of the countryside you wouldn\u0026rsquo;t get to see from the car. Look out for historic remains, shrines\u0026nbsp; and churches along the way, as they make this long-distance walk one of Cornwall\u0026rsquo;s most fascinating.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003ch2\u003e\u003cstrong\u003ePlaces to visit in Fowey\u003c/strong\u003e\u003c/h2\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eFowey Aquarium\u0026rsquo;s one of the most popular places to visit in Fowey, and you\u0026rsquo;ll find it right on the town quay. Most of the fish you\u0026rsquo;ll come face to face with in the aquarium were found in the region\u0026rsquo;s waters, so it\u0026rsquo;s a great way to get a glimpse into life under the sea during your time in Cornwall.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eWe love the name of Readymoney Cove\u0026hellip;it just conjures up images of smugglers dragging their bounty ashore like Poldark on his moonlit missions\u0026hellip;but enough of that, this sheltered sandy cove is a lovely spot for some family time by the sea during your Fowey holiday. Backed by cliffs, this is probably one of the prettiest places in the region, and if you look up to your right when you\u0026rsquo;re facing the sea you can see historic St Catherine\u0026rsquo;s Castle looking down on you.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eSt catherine\u0026rsquo;s Castle was built by Henry VIII to protect Fowey Harbour all the way back in the 1530s, and these days it\u0026rsquo;s owned by the English heritage. An interesting site for a wander on a warm day, the castle\u0026rsquo;s just under a mile from Readymoney beach, and dogs are welcome along on leads.
