  • "This property is ideal for a family gathering."

    Several different rooms in which to chat and play board games or watch TV quietly. Our grandchildren liked playing hide and seek. The property is close to the shops, pubs and the quay. It’s a nice stroll to both White House and Ready Money beaches. As always with most of Fowey holiday rentals finding parking is part of the joy of the holiday. The Old Foye Exchange has a little space to load and unload without causing to much chaos. We are looking forward to our next visit.

  • "We had such a great family stay at the house."

    So spacious and ideal for a large group, two sitting rooms and a dining room allowed for plenty of space. The house is situated perfectly for town and easy for a stroll to the town or the beach. Fowey itself is brilliant, lots of nice restaurants, cute shops and things to do. The harbour is beautiful and the beach has a really handy shop and toilet facilities. Couple of things to be aware of is that Fowey is really hilly and the parking is situated away from the house, this wasn’t an issue for us as we were entertained with the town and organised ourselves ahead of time for days out. We loved our trip and would like to return again, the house was really clean and had plenty of bathrooms/ensuites for the group. Highly recommend and the contact with the owners we had was really helpful and lovely.

  • "Foye Old Exchange is a lovely spacious, well presented, comfortable, characterful property in the centre of Fowey, The owners gave us excellent information prior to our visit and provided us with a lovely welcome pack upon arrival."

    The property is only 100m from the the Town Quay and The Esplanade, Readymoney Beach is only a slow 15 minute walk along the pretty Esplanade. We were lucky with the weather 12 sunny days in 2 weeks, Lots of lovely places to eat in Fowey all within easy walking distance, due to Covid space rules, we recommend booking before your holiday, Went on boat trips: River Cruise, Megavissey ferry, Over to Polruan (worth an explore), Also took advantage of water sports. We will definitely be back! Dean & Tamsin

The property

Resting just moments away from the picturesque River Fowey in South Cornwall, discover the large Grade Two listed townhouse of Foye Old Exchange, amidst the hustle and bustle of Fowey town.

Set over three floors and with six bedrooms, this holiday accommodation is ideal for bringing large groups of families and friends together to explore this corner of Cornwall, home to a vast array of things to see and do.

Enter into the former telephone exchange building and be welcomed into a real home from home, containing everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday.

Here, you have a choice of two sitting rooms to catch your rest within after a fun-filled afternoon; the snug is ideal for younger guests of the group to gather, whilst the larger sitting room is great for the adults to enjoy a glass of something whilst tuning into the TV.

From here, discover the well-equipped kitchen, where a range of quality appliances arranged in a contemporary assortment are certain to entice a spot of home-cooking and the ample preparation space is great for packing up a picnic ahead of the next day’s trip to the coast.

The dining room offers a space for all of your loved ones to gather to relish in some catch-up time before tucking into a dish and toasting to a wonderful holiday in Cornwall.

Concluding the interior of the dwelling are the well-appointed bedrooms, situated across the first and second floor and have been arranged to suit the needs of any party make up.

On the first floor you will find the master bedroom, which contains an impressive four-poster bed and en-suite and two double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms.

All en-suites have been refurbished for the 2022 season with new shower enclosures and flooring.

Upstairs there are two twin bedrooms and a single bedroom, served by a family bathroom which is accessed via one of the twin rooms.

During the summer months, look forward to dining alfresco within the rear courtyard and enjoying the final moments of sunshine during the evening.

Begin your Cornish adventure by meandering through the winding streets and alleyways of Fowey, where you will be delighted to find a range of shops, fine-dining restaurants, takeaways and traditional Cornish pubs.

Once you are refuelled, head to the Town Quay to hop on board a leisurely harbour cruise to soak up the views of the town, or if you are feeling slightly more adventurous rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or stand-up paddleboard and explore the estuary on your own accord.

Other attractions, which are situated within striking distance of the cottage, include Fowey Museum and the majestic St Catherine's Castle, a 16th century fort situated at the harbour entrance built by Henry VIII, or choose to walk the famous South West Coastal Path to find stunning beaches and hidden coves.

A trip to Cornwall would not be complete without visiting the famous Eden Project or The Lost Gardens Heligan, contemporary gardens promising wonderful family days out.

Alternatively, spend the day exploring the tall ships at Charlestown or cross the estuary to visit the National Trust-owned Lantivet Bay.

Foye Old Exchange is the ideal base for exploring this wonderful corner of Cornwall.

About the location

FOWEY

Lostwithiel 8 miles; Polperro 8 miles

This small town and civil parish lies at the mouth of the River Fowey in south Cornwall. The estuary of the River Fowey forms a natural harbour, which enabled the town to become an important trading centre. There is a wealth of things to see and do in and around the harbour. Whether you enjoy getting out on the water, playing golf or finding out more about the history of the area, you are sure to find something to suit the whole family. Harbour cruises leave the Town Quay regularly in season giving you a superb view of the town, but for the more adventurous, rent your own self-drive boat, kayak or paddle board and explore the waters for yourselves! The town is steeped in history, so why not join a guided tour of either Fowey or Polruan? You can even join an owl experience, play golf, go horse riding or pursue your artistic talents with pottery or painting courses. There is the aquarium, museum and St Catherine's Castle, as well as Readymoney Cove, all waiting to be explored. If you get peckish, or fancy something thirst quenching along the way, there is a plethora of pubs, inns, cafes and restaurants to choose. Whenever you plan to visit, keep a look out for the festivals, fairs, markets and theatre performances on throughout the year. There are many family attractions in the area, including Mevagissey and Charlestown harbours, the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Discover them all from this fantastic base!
