Fowey is a picture-postcard seaside town on the South Cornwall coast. It has a proud maritime heritage and is considered by many to be one of Cornwall's most idyllic holiday spots. Fowey plays host to a number of major events including the Fowey Royal Regatta and the Daphne Du Maurier Literary Festival.
Both take place during the summer drawing people from far and wide. Other events such as the Fowey carnival and Christmas market also prove popular with tourists. Fowey is situated near the mouth of the River Fowey.
It lies between Mevagissey and Looe and is around 25 miles from Plymouth. Its neighbouring town, Polruan is situated across the estuary. The bustling town quay is one the town's most picturesque locations and is the heartbeat of Fowey.
The buildings are a mish-mash of working boat-houses, Fowey holiday cottages and pubs. Ready Money Cove is a popular, sheltered beach that lies near the mouth of the Fowey River. It is bounded on either side by St Catherine's Castle and Neptune House.
St Catherine's Castle was built in 1536 by Henry VIII to repel Spanish raids and is managed by the English Heritage. The castle, which is in poor repair can still be reached by a short path that runs from the beach. Point Neptune House also overlooks the cove and was home to Daphne du Maurier during the Second World War - a commemorative plaque celebrating this can be seen on its walls.
