Cottages Around the River Fowey

The River Fowey is home to more than the town of Fowey and Polruan opposite. The Fowey starts flowing off Bodmin Moor, with its earliest point being not far from The Jamaica Inn, the famed location of Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name. We have a number of properties that are situated near the river and further inland, which are listed below.

Starting from the source and working towards the coast, the river runs across Bodmin Moor until it gets to Siblyback lake, where it turns westwards. As it descends in altitude, the water runs faster and creates some spectacular shallow waterfalls, such as Golitha Falls. Turning south just north of Lostwithiel and running through the town, the river stretches to the coastline with a widening flow.

With a number of cottages around Lostwithiel, you’ll be well-situated to explore Bodmin Moor to the north, or the Cornish coast to the south. Lostwithiel is also the last bridge across the waterway. As the Fowey expands, it is joined by the River Lerryn by which you will also find a couple of our cottages. Being quieter and a bit smaller, the Lerryn is ideal for casual river-boating or kayaking.

Just over two miles down-river from where the Lerryn joins, the village of Bodinnick on the eastern bank marks the start of the Fowey Estuary. A car ferry runs between Bodinnick and the northern part of Fowey, which makes it the last point of crossing for vehicles. Just a short walk north-east of Bodinnick is the small parish of Lanteglos-by-Fowey. This village is central and well-situated for access to St Austell Bay to the west and Looe in the East.
