About the owners

Luxury Family Hotels

Fowey Hall is part of the Luxury Family Hotel Group and was originally built in the late 1800s as a beautiful Victorian mansion by local resident Charles Hanson. It was acquired in 1998 by Luxury Family Hotels and restored to retain the unique character of a coastal manor with the relaxed atmosphere of a country house.

Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • If you fancy messing about on the river, there are plenty of family-friendly activities from kayaking and canoeing to sailing and swimming.

  • Hop across the river on the Bodinnick or Polruan ferry to strike out along the famous Hall Walk, taking in stunning estuary views on a circular four-mile route via Pont Creek.

  • Fowey is a quintessential, pretty Cornish harbour town. Go rock-pooling, watch the fishing boats go by, browse gift boutiques, galleries and artisan shops, and stop at cafés serving Cornish cream teas.

  • Keep your feet on dry land with a stroll along the Esplanade, stop for a pint of local ale in a traditional riverside pub, or wander down to Readymoney Cove where you’ll find St Catherine's Castle, built in 1536 by Henry VIII.

  • The Fowey Regatta, held in August, is also a perfect excuse to visit, with a carnival procession, displays, and sailing races to watch. For foodies, June’s Fowey Mussel Festival is another local event growing in popularity.

  • Being immersed in Du Maurier country, not only can you explore the scenery immortalised in novels such as Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel, but – if you visit during May – you can join in a literary celebration at the Fowey Festival of Words and Music.

  • Cornwall is heaven for horticulturalists - the hotel is just a 20-minute drive from the iconic biomes of the Eden Project, or explore The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

  • Take the car ferry to Bodinnick and discover the beaches around Looe and Talland Bay.
