The Old Quay House Hotel
About the Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- This "stylish" Cornish retreat is in a "lovely spot" with views of Fowey's waterfront (Alasdair Sawday's)
- It occupies a Victorian former seamen's shelter and has 13 individually designed bedrooms
- The Eden Project, Lanhydrock and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are less than 45 minutes' drive away
With good food and harbour views, The Old Quay House is a "stylish hotel" within the Polperro Heritage Coast, which Alasdair Sawday's calls a "lovely spot". The Daily Telegraph says it has "dazzling views" across Fowey Estuary and "front row seats" to the river.
The property is a Victorian former seamen's shelter, that today has earthy tones, natural fabrics and big windows to make the most of the views. The 13 bedrooms are all individually designed, and Classic rooms have views of the quaint high street, while Superior rooms have partial estuary views.
The restaurant showcases local seafood, West Country meat and Cornish cheeses, and there is also a "sunny" (The Times' Cool Hotel Guide) terrace with "great" views of the river -- a fine spot to stop for a drink and watch the boats go by, and even spot the occasional dolphin.
Fowey is a “stunningly picturesque” town, says Condé Nast Traveller. It has plenty to do, whether it's browsing the independent boutiques and art galleries or eating fish and chips on a harbour wall. You can join the South West Coastal Path and walk from the head of the estuary to St Catherine’s Castle, 20 minutes away.
The Eden Project is less than 20 minutes' drive away. The National Trust property, Lanhydrock, is less than 25 minutes' drive away and The Lost Gardens of Heligan -- a beautiful botanical gardens -- is less than 45 minutes' drive away.
