Fowey’s historic harbour, estuary — and breathtaking beaches beyond.
For a spectacular sea view, you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere like Fowey estuary, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We're right on the doorstep of this beautiful harbour town and everything it offers — walking, fishing, canoeing and sailing. For freshly-caught local seafood delicacies with a friendly Cornish welcome, head off park and hop on a ferry over the estuary.
Pick up your rod and paddle for some fishing or kayaking, or amble along the Covington or Gribbin Head walk. Don’t forget St. Catherine’s Castle, or Fowey’s very own aquarium.
A short drive from Penmarlam is the historic town of St Austell, a hub of history and home to its long-standing brewery, of course.
Then, for golden sand backed by imposing clifftops, check out Lansallos Beach, Lantic Bay, Readymoney Cove, Polridmouth Cove and Menabilly Beach — all within walking distance, but easily accessible by car.

Call in at one of the many dog-friendly pubs in Fowey — a few of our favourites include The Ship Inn, The Lugger or Haverner’s.

Over the river from Fowey
Land, sea — Penmarlam has both.
Launch your boat, or moor up at a pontoon berth five minutes down the lane at Penmarlam Boat Park. There’s no shortage of self-hire boats if you’re looking to set sail, or jump on a trip if you want someone else to take the wheel!
Grab your rod and make the most of the many fishing spots around Fowey estuary, whether on a boat or shored up. Or perhaps canoe the wooded creeks of Fowey estuary under your own steam.
If you’re feeling like more of a landlubber, lace up your walking boots and trek the mind-blowing cliff tops and coves. We’d recommend the Gribbin Head walk, allowing you to follow in the footsteps of novelist Daphne du Maurier. It’s a jaw-dropping stroll through picture-postcard scenery.
There’s no shortage of adventure and excitement in Fowey and nearby.
Thinking of a fortnight escape to your holiday home in Cornwall, or simply up for a leisurely weekend sojourn by the sea? Joining us at our holiday park near Fowey opens up so many possibilities and activities. Here are a few of our favourites nearby…
Fowey Estuary & maritime adventures — the stunning National Trust site that provides the backdrop for our holiday park. A dog-friendly treasure trove of walks, Instagram opportunities, seafood restaurants, cosy pubs, boating activities and creeks to canoe.
Country walking trails — the ideal day out for those on four legs or two. There’s so many gorgeous walks around Fowey estuary; be sure to check out the Fowey ‘Hall Walk’, Gribbin Head Walk and the Polruan to Polperro ‘rollercoaster walk’.
Connect with the coast — the National Trust’s dog-friendly Lantic Bay is one of the favourites in the area, with its own car park. It can also be a walking day out itself; a 1.5 hour amble from our park. Then there’s Readymoney Cove, Polridmouth Cove and Menabilly Beach.
Fowey Aquarium — a charming little local collection of Cornwall’s sealife, fish and shellfish; well worth a visit, especially if you’ve got kids.
St Catherine’s Castle — a fascinating structure that speaks to Fowey’s real history. This small artillery fort forms a pair that were built by Henry VIII in the 1530s to defend Fowey Harbour.
Bird Lady of Fowey — just a short trip over Fowey Estuary is this fantastic, award-winning independent bird sanctuary, run by Sarah. She offers year-round experience days with her collection of beautiful birds.
Day out attractions & family fun — you’re just a short drive away from some of Cornwall’s most famous attractions, including The Eden Project, Flambards Theme Park, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Tintagel Castle.
The Eden Project — this 30-acre outdoor garden is home to thousands of plant species.
