Why move to Fowey?

Fowey is a bustling sailing port on the Fowey Estuary, situated along the South Cornish coast and set in stunning countryside with dramatic beaches nearby. Known for its sailing, walks, stunning views, and vibrant streets, Fowey is a gem in Cornwall. It has been an inspiration to many of Daphne du Maurier's dramatic stories and is also home to the annual Fowey Literary Festival and the Royal Sailing Regatta.

A little bit of history
Fowey's history began before 1300 and in its time its natural harbour has played a major role in the export of China clay from the region, as well as allowing trade to develop in Europe. Playwrite and Author Daphne du Maurier once lived in Fowey, with many of her plays being set in the region.

Interesting Fact
The river began to develop into its current state at the end of the ice age, around 12,000 years ago. As the ice melted, the water levels rose over 120 feet and drowned the river valley and surrounding areas. Once the swell had subsided, the river and estuary we know today was formed.

Fowey has many independent shops as well as larger well-known companies, selling everything from fish and chips and ice cream to clothing and homeware. There are numerous restaurants catering for almost all of your culinary requirements!
