High above the delightful waterside town of Fowey, which famously inspired author Daphne du Maurier, stands the handsome country house that was also said to be an inspiration for Toad Hall in Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows. Inside, as in every Luxury Family Hotel, the ingredients of a perfect grown-up establishment – heralded by a hall with open fires, antiques and chandeliers – are mixed with the essentials of a children’s paradise: indoor and outdoor play areas, Ofsted-registered crèche, baby listening and more. There are 36 rooms and suites, all different, all beautifully furnished with antiques and pretty fabrics; the oak-panelled dining room is the setting for grown up delicious dinners, with family dining in the Garden Room restaurant next door, with the same mouth-watering menus in both. But don’t think you have to have a family with you to come to Fowey Hall: cleverly, it’s a hotel that works just as well for couples.
Being only 15 minutes away from the hotel – you simply must visit the world renowned Eden Project during your stay- the world’s largest greenhouse.
If you can tear yourself away from Fowey Halls delicious cuisine – how about a traditional fish and chips on the quay? But watch out for those seagulls, they might be peckish too!
Fowey is jam packed with beautiful individual shops – make sure you don’t miss White Dolls art just out of town where they make their own beautiful pottery in their own workshop!
