Fowey is situated on the south coast of Cornwall between Looe and Mevagissey, Fowey is not only an historic town but also a commercial seaport. Over the centuries Fowey has grown and now stretches for about a mile along the west bank of the River Fowey to the mouth of the river. Situated on the opposite bank, also at the mouth of the river, is the village of Polruan. A regular passenger ferry connects the two and further up river a car ferry runs from Fowey to Bodinnick on the other side of the river. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fowey has much to offer with something for everyone. A natural harbour, it is a haven for yachtsmen and we have had as many as 7,000 visiting yachts in a season. Fowey is an exporting port for china clay and as such you may see the ships making their way in and out of the harbour. Over the last few years Fowey has been a popular destination for several cruise liners, whose passengers are able to enjoy the delights of the town. What a sight to see these enormous ships come through the narrow harbour entrance, turn in the middle of the river and be pulled upstream to their mooring, the commercial jetties are concealed by a natural bend in the river.

Lostwithiel (Cornish: Lostwydhyel) is a small town in south Cornwall, lying in a valley at the head of the Fowey estuary, where the river Fowey is crossed by a five arched 14th century bridge. The town, which has a population of around 3000, lies on the main road and rail routes from Plymouth to the St Austell and the south coast of Cornwall.

Once an important stannary town, the town was the scene for a major battle in the English Civil War, when in 1644 the Royalist forces achieved their last major success. The nearby port at Fowey, and the stronghold of Restormel Castle ensured the town's strategic importance.

Today Lostwithiel is peaceful and quiet. The town centre caters for the local commmunity as well as for passing traffic, and is particular famed for its auction rooms and antique shops. A walk through woodland leads to the imposing ruins of Restormel Castle, overlooking the town and the river. The town is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Fowey estuary, the cliffs and beaches along the coast, and the surrounding countryside.
