It also includes useful local contact information for equipment hire etc. Visiting Fowey Fowey is an ancient harbour town built on a hill, as a result the roads in Fowey are narrow and steep with many steps and little in the way of pavements. Although Fowey offers plenty of parking it is limited in the centre of the town.
The information here will help you find a suitable route for parking and accessing the town. On approaching Fowey by car you will see signs to the Bodinnick Ferry. Follow these and park at Caffa Mill car park. The town is a fairly level walk with some inclines approximately 10 minutes from here.
The Main car park is at the top of the town with a steep walk down. A shuttle bus runs everyday during the summer and a limited service in the winter. This runs from the Main car park to the town centre and back. There are no specific facilities on the mini bus but the driver is willing to offer assistance.

Our Handy Guide To Fowey! But the real charm of the town lies in the wide range of boutique, unique and independent shops. There are also top-quality bakeries where you can find bread, rolls, pasties, cakes and treats. There may be no large supermarket, but with two local convenience stores and a Boots, you'll still find everything you need.
There is a Co-op around 5 miles away, Asda and Tesco are around 7 miles, and all the major supermarkets will deliver online shopping as well. There are many kayak, canoe, and boat hire centres that go from both Quays. If you fancy going a little further, you can take the ferry round to Mevagissey too.
In the centre of Fowey there is a sweet little aquarium, and a local museum — both are worth a peek! Fowey has a 14th century church in the centre of the town and a 15th century fort, St. The closest beach to town is Readymoney Cove, which has clean sands and is perfect for swimming. A swimming platform is moored off the beach during the summer months. There is also a fabulous little shop for all your seaside needs. However, no dogs are allowed between Easter and October.
There is a secret sea-pool hidden away at Whitehouse Pier which is perfect for a refreshing paddle while looking out over the estuary. It can only be found at certain times, so check those tide times! Bit of a thrill seeker? Then Cornwall has some fantastic opportunities to get your adrenaline buzz!
NWUK Fowey Valley – Nordic Walking UK
Hang Loose at Eden have zip wires and giant air swings, Adrenaline Quarry near Liskeard is perfect for a day full of crazy activities, and Retallack Watersports near Newquay is the place to head for total-wipeout style aqua adventures. There are hundreds of miles of fantastic walks in Cornwall. The South West Coastal Path alone winds miles around the county, and The Saints Way is 27 miles from Fowey on the south coast, right across to Padstow on the north coast. The Fowey Hall Walk is much more manageable at 4 miles and is the best way to see Fowey from all angles!
We also particularly enjoy the Gribbin Head walk, especially when the Daymark is open in the summer. Whether you enjoy the sea, woods, rivers, moors or fields, you will not be disappointed with the walks in Cornwall. They really do offer something for everyone and make an enjoyable day-trip.
