Get Packing for a Trip to Fowey in Cornwall

The winding streets of Fowey can't fail to enchant you.  Brimming with cafes, pubs and restaurants there's plenty of choices of where to eat.

We stayed at The Old Quay House Hotel

Absolutely delightful and attention to detail was second to none.
Our room overlooked the quaint narrow street.  
I adored the quotes on the walls as I'm into 'love' and 'motivational' quotes.  Gave me a warm and cosy feeling straight away!
And it's the little things that matter!  Ear defenders just in case the seagulls are too noisy!  We weren't bothered at all by them, but maybe that was because it was the end of November.  Raincoats hanging in the wardrobes on the off chance that it rains!

Because of the time of year we were prepared for rain, but we thought it was a lovely thought.

The breakfasts  were delicious.  We are early risers and always managed to get a table in the window with the best estuary views ever!
Oh and before I forget just 'upalong' the hill from Old Quay House you will find 'upalong' cottage.  So cute!

A walk whatever the weather 

is beautiful here.

Sam's And Bouillabaisse to die for!

Sam's Restaurant and Cocktail bar is always on our list of somewhere to eat and drink in Fowey.

Just to let you know you can't book a table at Sam's it's turn up and hopefully get a table or have a drink whilst you wait.  In the hub bub of this place it never seems long to wait and it's always worth it.  

As I said before, we highly recommend the boullabaisse, it's the best we've ever tasted.

This was an anniversary trip so on the evening of our anniversary it was raining hard so we decided to stay in and eat in the Hotel restaurant.  We weren't disappointed.  It was delicious.

Unknown 25 years ago and hidden in a tangle of weeds

The Lost Gardens of Heligan now restored and one of the finest gardens in Cornwall is a must visit.  

It was a wet day when we visited but we still enjoyed it.  There's lots to see and makes a very interesting walk with lots of faces to make you smile.

Sadly the rope ladder was closed.  (Shame that - as we all know how adventurous I am and was so looking forward to it - not!)
Sadly our trip to Fowey is over once more.  We had a lovely time and one of our favourite places to visit.  We will be back.

Where to next?
