11 things to do in Fowey

Fowey is pronounced ‘foy’, to rhyme with ‘joy’. It seems fitting for this idyllic smattering of ice-cream-coloured cottages, where winding lanes lead to picture-perfect sandy coves and a quaint harbour with colourful boats. On the south Cornish coast, this ancient fishing port is like a fairytale: ancient castles, white sandy nooks and hedgerow-lined paths lie around every charming corner. Prepare to be bewitched.
