Over the last few years Fowey Hall has undergone a multimillion-pound refurbishment. New additions include the Lantic Bay and Polruan suites, which sit above the renovated spa. With expansive views from private balconies, the suites are contemporary, with luxe interiors and spa-like bathrooms with huge tubs and walk-in rain showers. Guests can use new facilities including an outdoor pool with views of the Fowey estuary, an indoor pool in the spa, and a children’s den which has a library, cinema and games room – guests are offered 90 minutes of complimentary childcare per night. The hotel is within walking distance of the fishing port of Fowey – with its lively restaurant scene, numerous art galleries and boutiques – as well as the sheltered cove of Readymoney, loved by families for its sandy shores, calm and shallow waters, and anchored bathing platform. The hotel will happily lend guests buckets, spades and crabbing lines for a day at the beach. Dogs are also welcome and will receive a ‘woof welcome pack’ with thoughtful essentials.
