Fowey's beautiful natural harbour provides deep water access at all states of the tide and is one of the most popular sailing centres along the
coast of Devon and Cornwall. Two local yacht clubs organise competitive sailing throughout the summer season and Fowey Harbour
Commissioners maintain a very well run port for the benefit of leisure and commercial craft alike. The town itself provides an excellent range
of small shops catering for most day to day needs together with many first class restaurants, tea rooms, public houses etc. The immediate
area is surrounded by miles of delightful coast and countryside much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. There are good road links to the motorway system (M5), via the A38/A30 and main line railway connections (London Paddington about 4 hours) can be found at Par and St. Austell (about 4 and 8 miles respectively) to the west.
